  • 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.

  • A learning experience that teaches, too

    I am an instructor at Southern Maine Community College and I teach English Language Learners.

  • Analyze this: Confronting personal prejudices

    At a certain point in every life there comes a time when one feels the need to confront his/her prejudices once and for all. For me that time is now. Having just turned 60, I have finally realized, much to my own amazement, that I am not a perfect human being. In fact, I am a deeply flawed and...

  • Serve America

    As this economic crisis deepens at the federal, state, and local level, the demand for critical services is going up while the resources to provide these services are going down. At the same time, nonprofit organizations, which are ground zero for providing services in our community, are strug...

  • Bartlett Circle's future

    Thank you for the terrific article on Bartlett Circle in your March 19 issue. We are very proud of Bartlett Circle's 33-year history of providing a low-cost, comfortable residential community for Yarmouth elders.
