  • Abby's Road: My hope for happiness

    She ran with a soft smile on her face, her footfalls quiet, her toes pointed. Every third step, she leaped off the ground, raising her hands above her head and extending her fingers with a dancer’s grace. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, her cadence seemed to be putting her i...

  • The Universal Notebook: The fine-art confidence game

    A Portland art gallery has the local art scene buzzing over the propriety of charging artists to exhibit their work. That battle was fought and largely won by the Union of Maine Visual Artists back in the 1980s, when artist-activist Carlo Pittore led the charge against museums and gallerie...

  • 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. I have never heard of or read about any healt...

  • Letter: Rancourt, Holbrook in Scarborough

    As Election Day approaches, I find myself thinking a great deal about the choices for Scarborough Town Council.
