    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45.

  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45.

  • Letter: Christie for Cape School Board

    We urge you to support John Christie for School Board in upcoming Cape Elizabeth elections. As a father of first- and third-graders, John has a long-term personal interest in the quality of our schools. John is a thoughtful, patient person who is open to hearing different perspectives when d...

  • 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...

  • Letter: Keep Willard Beach unique

    We have been homeowners in South Portland for 2 1/2 years. We visited many coastal communities before deciding the city offered both the sense of community and recreational areas that we wanted our children to experience. We are pleased to have met many friendly residents and enjoy patronizing the...

  • Letter: Protect people, not dogs, at Willard Beach

    As the election nears, I want to point out a few things for people to think about when it comes to the ordinance change for Willard Beach in South Portland. The biggest reason I support it is because I have a problem with allowing my grandchildren (or me for that matter) to play in the same san...

  • Letter: 'Flights of hyperbole' in Brunswick

    Oxford Aviation tout F. Lee Bailey uses soaring flights of hyperbole, enchanting all within earshot without the slightest bit of evidence, analysis or substantiation. Try these: "a tremendous opportunity for Brunswick, far beyond anything I had imagined;" and "further cement Brun...

  • Letter: Hold our senators accountable

    Edgar Allen Beem hit just the right note on almost every concern about the need for health-care reform. I, too, am mystified that so many are voicing dismay that President Obama would like to change the status quo of our health-care industry. Can it be that they do not pay their own premiums ...
