  • Letter: Gideon deserves to be re-elected to House

    My husband and I set out to start a new business last fall, but it required legislation to make a go of it. Democratic Rep. Sara Gideon, our friend, worked tirelessly to write and pass the bill to open up a new market. I am inspired by her willingness to tackle big issues that prevent Mainers fro...

  • Letter: Re-elect Freeport's Gideon in House District 48

    Please join me in voting for Democrat Sara Gideon in her re-election to House District 48 (Freeport and Pownal). In her 2012 Maine House election, I drove Sara from door to door to meet and talk to what must have been thousands of residents. I was astounded at her commitment, her knowledge and he...

  • Letter: Vote yes to save Main Street

    We've seen the signs urging us to "Save Main Street" in Cumberland by voting no on June 9. Instead I urge you to vote yes. This issue is about preserving one of the few remaining small business locations on this stretch of road. If we don't keep the businesses we have, Main Street c...

This is a developed thinking skill coming from many years practicing law as well as many years servin...

  • Letter: Vote for Chase, Armitage

    I moved to Falmouth in 1970 and bought a lot from Fred Chase in Brookside Forest. I have always found Fred to be an honest and reasonable person. When he was on the Town Council back in the 1970s he would always be accessible and his decisions were made with a lot of thought of how it would aff...

  • The Universal Notebook: Do the right thing

    Earlier this month we paid $775.28 to replace the catalytic converter on one of our cars. The old catalytic converter did not affect the operation of the car at all and the new one didn't improve it, but in order to get a state inspection sticker it had to be replaced. I wasn't at all pleased t...

  • Global Matters: The incurable cancer of anti-Semitism

    TEL AVIV, Israel — Sitting on the balcony of my hotel, enjoying a lovely view of the Mediterranean Ocean, it's easy to forget that the nation of Israel is not only targeted by its political adversaries, but is inhabited by a people whose houses of worship – even in the United States – rem...
