  • Intentionally Unreasonable: The flag isn't South Carolina's only problem

    There is an old Scottish proverb with more than a little Biblical linkage: “Confession is good for the soul.” Always aspiring to provide goodness to the soul (mine or to others) I go forth today with a timely and topical deep-fried confession. For many years now I’ve held...

  • Capitol Notebook: Country finds grace, LePage faces a fall from it

    Friday, June 26, dawned like many recent June days; gray clouds hung in, and an unexpected rain had dampened the ground over the night. When that day ended, the world had shifted, moved by two stunning events. The United States Supreme Court affirmed that same-sex marriage is legal ...

  • Letter: Troubled by LePage's policies

    Despite his bombast, or maybe because of it, Paul LePage is leading in the polls to become governor of Maine. It's not his bombast that worries me, however. Indeed, his outbursts could enliven things in Augusta and be fun to watch – sort of. What troubles me are his attacks on... 1

  • Letter: Woodbury for state senator

    I am writing in support of Dick Woodbury’s candidacy in Senate District 11. As the president of an investment management and trust bank, I have worked with Dick when he served in the Maine House on income and estate tax issues. I am consistently impressed with Dick’s vision and...

    Now is the time to support state Rep. Mary Nelson in her campaign to return to the Maine House representing District 112 in Falmouth. She is an accomplished legislator who has watched out for the interests of Falmouth. She has been most effective in preserving Falmouth bus services with Me...

  • Letter: Support the South Portland school bond

    I am writing in support of the initiative to renovate South Portland High School. I recently took advantage of the opportunity to tour the high school and it didn’t take long for me to witness the extreme condition which has the school’s accreditation on warning status. After l...

  • Letter: SPHS needs local support

    With regards to the South Portland High School bond, claims such as “the total cost with interest is $70 million” (Albert A. Dimillo Jr.) are inaccurate and misleading. Please do not be fooled by the exaggerated numbers presented in last week’s letters to the editor. Acco...

  • Letter: School plan is right for South Portland

    We are writing to urge a yes vote for the renovation of South Portland High School. The deterioration of the building is well known, and most reasonable people agree that something must be done. The project being proposed has been carefully designed to provide the best value to the citizens of ...

  • Letter: Sisterly support for Corthell

    I want to urge the citizens of Scarborough to vote on Nov. 2 for Kerry Corthell for Town Council. Kerry is not a career politician, this being her first run for office, but she has a long and varied history of service to her community. In addition to possessing those qualities that one hopes to f...

  • Letter: Re-elect Pagurko to Bath council

    I am writing to endorse Ruthe Pagurko for Bath City Council from Ward 7. Ruthe is running for re-election this November and has proved to be a hard-working, fiscally responsible member of the council. Ruthe faithfully polls her constituents before voting on key issues to truly represent the vot...
