  • The Universal Notebook: Literary exiles in Maine

    Some of the most interesting writers who ever worked in Maine did not write about Maine. When it comes to Maine, I’m as chauvinistic as a native gets, a local yokel who never ventured very far afield, but for some reason I have rarely been interested in Maine writers, with the possible exce...

  • Letter: Cape Elizabeth gun club neighbors oppose growth

    I am writing in response to the article “Cape Elizabeth gun club faces new obstacles.” Concerned neighbors did not seek to &ld...

  • Letter: Don't rush into the public option

    Just like a bad penny, the public option plan keeps coming back. As health-care reform moves toward a Senate vote, the plan is not part of legislation on the table. But don't count this controversial measure out. Competition usually benefits consumers. But a federally subsidized public plan wo...

  • Letter: Yarmouth is paved with promises

    Three years ago they were going to pave Route 88 in Yarmouth from the Westcutogo Inn to the Texaco station. Now they say they will repave it from Smith Street to Bayview Street. We'll see. Dick Miller

  • Letter: Monaghan-Derrig for Cape council

    We would like to express words of support and endorsement for Kim Monaghan-Derrig in the upcoming November election for the Town Council seat in Cape Elizabeth.

  • Letter: Walsh for Cape Elizabeth council

    As a resident of Cape Elizabeth for over 37 years, I am writing to give my support to Jim Walsh who is running for the open seat on the Cape Elizabeth Town Council. Jim ran for the council seat opening last January with a respectable showing, and I am extremely pleased that he is running again.

  • Letter: Defeat Crosby and the dog ban

    Gary Crosby has once again spread more proverbial bull manure about the Willard Beach issue than any amount of poop a well-attended dog or responsible pet owner has ever left behind. Contrary to Gary's assertion, a visit to the Save Willard Beach Web site will not provide the though...

  • Letter: Elitist agenda in North Yarmouth

    Recently the North Yarmouth selectmen changed the status of Old Town House Park to no hunting after allowing it in a previous vote. Their bias against hunting is obvious, as statistics show hunting is safer than any other sport nationally, including Ping-Pong. The elitist bias of t...

  • Letter: Crowds fuel Maine Marathon runner

    As a newbie participant in the Peak Performance Maine Marathon, I'd like to express my gratitude to the residents and volunteers of Portland and Falmouth who came out to support the runners with their voices, cowbells, cups of water and Gatorade, and shouts of encouragement. More than a race,...

  • Letter: Reject the excise tax initiative

    Do not be fooled by ballot Question 2, which its promoters want you to think will provide excise tax relief. This initiative is flagrantly unfair and will not benefit most middle-income Maine residents. What it will do is cause chaos in municipal budgets, which will hurt our children, who canno...
