  • Letter: Denno has right background for Legislature

    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45. Dale has the skills and experience to make our government more cost-effective and responsive to all Maine citizens. With an extensive business background,...

  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45. Dale has worked in the public and private sector, and contributed countless hours to public service. In his various roles, he has had the opportunity to successfully work with b...

  • Letter: Opportunity knocks in South Portland

    South Portland has a unique opportunity to acquire a newly constructed four-story building that would allow the city to have all their departments under one roof. This would save the city from spending monies to renovate and maintain these very old buildings that are falling in disrepair. ...

  • Short Relief: GOP's LePage fills leadership void left by Maine Democrats

    According to the latest data, more than 318,000 of the state's approximately 1 million registered voters turned out to vote in the June election – about 31 percent. That was significantly higher than the 15 percent to 20 percent that the secretary of state predicted on the basis of h... 3

  • The Universal Notebook: Heluva good excuse to be a conservative

    Here on the Beem ranch, we all enjoy a good dip. Cream cheese and chives go a long way toward satisfying this sinful craving, but for sheer unctuous indulgence, nothing quite measures up to a good clam dip. Recently, however, I discovered that I may be a clam-dip conservative. Every... 8

I do still drive, but anticipated the day when I might not be able to when choosing to buy a c...

  • Letter: Brunswick Parks & Gardens is not-for-profit

    The Brunswick Park & Gardens article last month stated that Herschel Sternlieb, visionary and founder of BP&G, said "the project was a for-profit business." This gives the impression that BP&G is out to make money, when in fact it cannot because of its tax-exempt status. The B...

  • The Universal Notebook: Soccer explains nothing

    As a distinguished freelance journalist (who happens not to have much work lately), I am free these days to watch the World Cup soccer matches, though watching television before noon goes against every fiber of my being. As it happens, I caught the tail end of the U.S.-Slovenia game in the... 2

  • Forecaster Forum: Confessions of a lax gardener

    I will have beautiful rhododendrons next year. Every shade of pink, from the palest blush to the deepest rose, blossoms perched on hardy, robust, unbroken stems. All because my lacrosse player leaves for college. I truly have never minded his backstop in front of the piney slope und...

  • Letter: Flawed, careless decision in SAD 75

    You reported SAD 75 will again try to close West Harpswell School, but did not address the disgraceful manner in which they reached this decision. The subcommittee that recommended closure held four supposedly public meetings which were not publicly announced; refused to accept corrections of mi...
