  • Letter: Denno has right background for Legislature

    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: Scarborough fact and fiction

    It has been said that if one repeats a lie often enough folks will believe it to be true. This seems to have been the strategy of the Pine Point Residents Group concerning the land swap of Depot Street in Scarborough. Inundating newspapers with letters and storming council chambers with dozen...

  • Letter: Falmouth coaches deserve thanks

    This fall marks the 10th and final year in a row that one or more of my children will run cross country for Falmouth High School. During that time Danny Paul and Jorma Kurry have shared the coaching responsibilities. My children's running skills span all levels from elite runner, to good runner,...

  • Letter: Ignored in South Portland, Scarborough

    I don't have much knowledge of politics, but have read much lately. In South Portland the public has been upset about firings, rehirings, stipend, health insurance and the little trick pulled on the Willard Beach snack bar. In Scarborough, it was a land swap. In both towns, the peop...

  • Letter: Scarborough council's arrogance

    It's long been realized that unhealthy ego leads to arrogance and arrogance can lead to abuse and abuse can create superheated ego. And so the cycle goes. Scarborough residents, who are watching, have just witnessed a classic example of that circular scenario with the abuse of power demonstrat...

  • Letter: South Portland decision unhealthy

    It was with great frustration that I listened to the City Council's decision to not allow citizens to determine the level of compensation for the council and to continue the coverage of health insurance. First, there is a huge inequity that exists on the council at present. Some councilors receive a...

  • Letter: Scarborough council erred

    On Aug. 19, Scarborough residents pleaded one more time with the Town Council to reconsider the unfair and unequal land swap of Depot Street with the Lighthouse Motel owners.   Once again residents left the meeting in a state of disbelief that the Town Council would not change...

  • The Universal Notebook: On the road to recovery

    Our all-American addiction to the automobile (an affliction from which I suffer shamefully, by the way) has led Maine to spend some $131 million of its stimulus money from the American Recovery and  Reinvestment Act on road and bridge projects. We seem determined to drive our way back to econo...
