    Dinesh D'Souza's "America" was not what I was expecting. In the promotions for the documentary, D’Souza states, “America. Imagine what the world would be like without her.” It was a fascinating concept to me, to see one person’s interpretation of what the world woul...

  • The Universal Notebook: Confessions of a (recovering) soccer dad

    Our daughter Tess played soccer from the time she was a little girl until she got to college. Prior to her taking up the sport, I had little or no interest in the game. Then we lived the devoted lives of soccer moms and dads through travel team to premier and high school varsity soccer. It...

  • Letter: Share the South Portland beach

    "Share, share, that's fair" is what I've said to my children since they were toddlers. I wish someone had taught the same values to the folks who oppose sharing Willard Beach. Some folks like dogs, others do not. Under the current rules, the best beach times are reserved f...
