  • The Universal Notebook: Let’s make a deal, Mr. Cutler

    Independent gubernatorial candidate Eliot Cutler got a bit of a boost last week when independent U.S. Sen. Angus King endorsed him. Sen. King and Mr. Cutler seem to share the belief that only an independent can break through partisan gridlock to get things done. The only trouble with that ...

  • Abby's Road: After a Trapper Keeper snaps shut, it never lets go

    The iconic portrait of my life features me at the tender age of 7. It can be attributed to my mother, who snapped it on whatever predated the disposable camera. At least one of my sisters was likely hugging her knee at the time. In the calm second my mother’s pointer finger was able ...

We satisfied that trust by doing our best in weighing the needs of our school system against the need to keep taxes in check. For the second year running, the bo...

  • Global Matters: Timely message on the wings of Honor Flight

    It’s not something I’m particularly proud to admit, but I am not an especially patient person. My impatience is more pronounced when I travel. I bristle at long lines. I find other travelers annoying, and generally I don’t like crowds. When I travel, I like things to go my way.

  • Letter: Cumberland should re-elect Perfetti

    When looking for a responsible, engaged and passionate candidate for Cumberland Town Council, our vote will definitely be for Michael Perfetti.
