  • Capitol Notebook: Country finds grace, LePage faces a fall from it

    Friday, June 26, dawned like many recent June days; gray clouds hung in, and an unexpected rain had dampened the ground over the night. When that day ended, the world had shifted, moved by two stunning events. The United States Supreme Court affirmed that same-sex marriage is legal ...

    People don’t generally appreciate it when folks from away weigh in on local affairs, so I will withhold my thoughts about the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust’s refusal to allow the Shore Road Pathway to go through its Robinson’s Woods preserve. I’m sure they mean well and are on...

  • No Sugar Added: A summer love letter to Maine

    It’s been six years since I moved here, and I’m ready to confess what I know you’ve been hoping to read: I think I’m in love. With the coast of Maine. Given my post-widowhood dating history, I tend to be a bit cynical about love – but the coast of Maine... 2

  • Letter: A reminder for the wealthy
