  • Letter: Hoffer is the source for high school sports

    As the parent of a high school athlete, I always look forward to Michael Hoffer's wonderful coverage of games. His detailed observation of the contest is always put into the context of the teams' histories and futures. His enthusiasm for high school sports infuses everything he writes, and he alw...

  • Intentionally Unreasonable: It's Stevoe versus the status quo

    Let me begin this new column with a proper introduction; my name is Stevoe and I’m an unreasonable man through and through. This self-designation is borrowed from George Bernard Shaw and his maxim, “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists i...

  • Letter: Re-elect Rosenblatt in Scarborough

    We are writing this letter on behalf of Annalee Rosenblatt, who is running for re-election to the Scarborough School Board. Annalee has done an outstanding job as a member of the board and deserves to be returned so she can continue the important work. Annalee has been involved in building and mak...

  • 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....

    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...
