  • The Right View: Film raises the question of a world without 'America'

    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: Brigham backs Hillman in Cape election

    Beware the single-minded, single-agenda candidate for elected town office. In challenging times, the citizenry is better served by a team of super-heroes than a collection of lone stars. Cape Elizabeth needs people like David Hillman on the School Board. He is a thoughtful, deliberate decisi...

  • Letter: Scarborough right to rein in horse owners

    I would like to thank the Scarborough Town Council and everyone who responded positively to the changes being made to the "horses on the beach" ordinance, which will now require the display of a large, visible permit number by all horse riders on the beach. Hopefully the visible permit wi...

  • Letter: Keep Willard Beach open to all

    In 1989, when I moved to the Willard Square area, I began walking on Willard Beach regularly, mostly in the early mornings before I went to work. What a privilege and joy to be able to experience such beauty. The other "regular strollers" were friendly, welcoming and respectful not only to...
