  • The Universal Notebook: Support your local library

    You can tell almost everything you need to know about a town by looking at its public schools and its public library. Towns that invest in education and literacy are great places to live. Towns that don’t aren’t. I was pleased to see that the library referendums in Cape Elizabe...

  • Letter: No need to ban dogs at Willard Beach

    Why all this fuss about dogs on the beach? I've been walking my own and occasionally others' dogs for 20 years on Willard Beach in every season without ever experiencing any problems with other animals, their owners, or the non-dog people on the beach.

  • Letter: Share the South Portland beach

    "Share, share, that's fair" is what I've said to my children since they were toddlers. I wish someone had taught the same values to the folks who oppose sharing Willard Beach. Some folks like dogs, others do not. Under the current rules, the best beach times are reserved f...

  • Letter: South Portland vandalism a non-story

    I am truly appalled at last week's story regarding sign vandalism in South Portland.
