  • Letter: Rationale lacking for Cape Elizabeth school chief's extension

    I was surprised and confused by the Cape Elizabeth School Board’s recent decision to extend the superintendent’s contract, beyond the remaining 2 1/2 years. The board’s action seemed based on a desire to maintain consistency while implementing the district’s new Strategic ...

  • Letter: Protectionism is reason for Canadian drug ruling

    I disagree with the CanaRx decision, which struck down a Maine law allowing Maine citizens to purchase foreign prescriptions. One of the rationales by opponents of the law was that foreign prescriptions are less safe than U.S. prescriptions. Well, if that were true, what makes it any less safe fo...

  • Letter: Fed up with campaign signs

    Maine is one of four states with a billboard law that passed in 1979 and survived significant court challenges.

    Although I have always voted Democrat, I am voting for Fred Horch, Green Independent candidate, for state representative on Nov. 2.

Denise does not speak ...

  • Letter: Send Strang Burgess back to Augusta

    I wish to urge voters of House District 108 (Cumberland, North Yarmouth, Chebeague Island and Long Island) to cast their votes on Nov. 2 for Meredith Strang Burgess. For decades the voters of this district have sent smart, qualified, hard-working people to represent them in Augusta. Meredith me...

  • Letter: Return Bliss to the Senate

    Sen. Larry Bliss states that his legislative aims, if re-elected, will be to balance the best interests of the individuals and families he represents with promotion of business and jobs and protection of the environment. What a difficult task to coordinate all this. Often, enhancement of o...

    Larry Bliss states that his legislative aims, if re-elected to the state senate will be to balance the best interests of the individuals and families he represents with promotion of business and jobs and protection of the environment. What a difficult task to coordinate all this. Often, en...

  • Letter: Elect Gruber in House District 108

    Tom Gruber had a mother with Alzheimer's disease. He could have let her stay in Philadelphia with other family members. Instead, he brought her here. He visited her every day. He made it a point to get to know the other residents at the Alzheimer's unit, their families and the staff. He lear...
