    Letters to the editor, Nov. 8, 2010Time to vote for paycheck fairness

    In less than two weeks, Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins will vote on whether to strengthen laws aimed at preventing gender-based wage discrimination. The bill, which has already passed with a bipartisan vote in the House, is a critical step toward ensuring economic security for Mainers at a time when more and more women […]

    Letters to the editor, Nov. 7, 2010: Celebrating LePage’s victory

    Congratulations to Paul LePage and his supporters. It seems “meet and just” that northern Maine voters, responsible for the success of Mr. LePage’s election to the office of governor of Maine, have their way in this matter. Mainers to the north frequently, I think, feel out-gunned by central and southern Maine. Let us hope Mr. […]

    Letters to the editor: Don’t slight local landmark

    What is it about the former Hay and Peabody Funeral Home? It has languished on the market for more than two years, even though it seems appropriately priced. It’s a fine and serious example of Portland’s best turn-of-the-century architecture, although it has an architecturally inappropriate and unattractive addition to one side. Its location is excellent, […]

    More letters to the editor: The election still on the minds of many readers

    Maine was fortunate to have several fine candidates for governor. They had ideas, energy, and commitment to what each of them felt were the best interests of Maine people. Paul LePage won with just 38 percent of the votes. Many who might have supported his principles voted for others because of concerns about his ability […]

    Letters to the editor, Nov. 5, 2010Veterans Day should be special

    Veterans Day is approaching, and what do we do about it? Well, a few dedicated people meet, pray and acknowledge what our veterans have done for all of us. That being said, it is becoming just another holiday celebrated by the masses not for our veterans, but to give most a day off — if […]

    More letters to the editor, Nov. 4, 2010Taxes, politics, economics all in the mix

    The remarkable review of the welfare situation in Maine reported by the Portland Press Herald presents a rather stark commentary on the economic stress being experienced within our communities. The idea, promoted by the political right (as in Cal Thomas’ columns), that most people in such circumstances are somehow riding a “gravy train” is a […]

    Letters to the editor, Nov. 4, 2010Options exist for energy alternatives

    Michael Klare in his book “Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet,” warns readers that growing scarcity and sustained worldwide demand for fossil fuels has created the new geopolitics of energy which are putting many at risk. Risks to humans worldwide include increased energy prices and adverse environmental impacts, and the possibility of resource wars between powerful nations […]

    Letters to the editor, Nov. 3, 2010Portland offers many worship styles

    I, for one, am excited that Portland now has a new church that has gained a mostly positive moment in the media spotlight. I’m glad to see the enthusiasm for Next Level Church and I celebrate that they are attracting a younger crowd with their band, music and very practical and relevant messages. I think […]

    Letters to the editor, Nov. 2, 2010Readers ponder meaning of votes

    Everybody loves a good slogan, like “More Tea, Less Government,” but before I vote, I want a clear vision of what I’m voting for. I’m particularly confused by the people who dress up like revolutionists and call for a return to the good old days. I don’t know what they’re imagining, but my first thought […]
