  • 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 ...

  • Letter: Christie for Cape School Board

    It is with great enthusiasm that I write on behalf of John Christie for Cape Elizabeth School Board. As a CFO and COO of a company that provides information technology services to small businesses, John is well-versed in successfully guiding a company through particularly challenging economic times....

  • 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...

  • Letter: South Portland vandalism a non-story

    I am truly appalled at last week's story regarding sign vandalism in South Portland.

  • Letter: Rosenblatt for Scarborough School Board

    I've had the opportunity to work closely with Annalee Rosenblatt on town committees over the years and have found her to be hard working, fiscally prudent, charitable and efficient. I appreciate her candor and tact when facing tough challenges in which quality of education must be carefully wei...

  • Letter: Crosby behaves like 'John Wayne'

    To anybody with a normal sense of logic, the first culprit in thefts of Gary Crosby's signs "mostly near schools" would have been school children who, I would imagine, take exception to having their walk with their family dogs on Willard Beach curtailed. Crosby's culprits are his "opp...

  • Letter: Support the Scarborough land bond

    As a Scarborough resident I can vote to benefit land preservation in town. Please vote yes with me. If we pass this million dollar bond we'll receive $200,000 in matching funds from the Maine Community Foundation. This is too good an opportunity to pass up. Because of development pressure in s...

  • Letter: Innes replies to Payne

    OK, Tony Payne, here are the details that you didn't mention in your debut column last week. I make no apologies for my vote on municipal rights: LD 1028 would allow a municipality to adopt an ordinance that states that a corporation may not be recognized as a person. I believe th...

  • Letter: Do something about climate change

    On Saturday, Oct. 24, people all over the world will be working to raise awareness about climate change and to communicate to our leaders that we need strong action to lower carbon emissions and transition to a non-fossil fuel based economy. There will be events in places as far apart as Falmouth an...
