    People approved of pot dispensaries, let’s have them   As a person who requires medicinal marijuana in order to live a productive life, I am completely outraged with the government here in Maine! I worked extremely hard back in the late ’90s to get our initial medicinal marijuana law passed. This law, in short, gave […]

    Blowing hot and cold on offshore wind I want to point out an oversight in Staff Writer Tux Turkel’s otherwise fine March 12 article, “Oil dealers: Offshore wind plan a mistake.” Turkel states that 8,000 megawatts (MW) of wind is the equivalent of six Seabrook nuclear plants. In fact, it is about the equivalent of […]

    Letters to the editor, March 24, 2010Waynflete students right to take stand

    Kudos to the Waynflete students who wrote letters to the editor expressing their opinions on wind power. Although my views differ on some of the points expressed, I applaud them for their reasoned arguments and their admirable level of interest in public policy and civic engagement (“Students’ opinions get blasted on the Web,” March 14). […]

    Letters to the editor, March 23, 2010Health care deserves Senate support

    It is time for Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins to support the administration’s promotion of significant health care reform. The companion bill coming to the Senate is not perfect, but is an effective move in the right direction. Plan opponents say the present effort should be scrapped and replaced by small, “step-by-step” measures. However, […]

    Abortion no solution to problems   Nancy A. Foss of the Abortion Access Project called people like me “radical right-to-lifers” (Letters, March 10) because we disagree with the abundance of abortions. Does she consider herself a “radical right-to-deather?” Her maudlin adoration of abortion doctors is disturbing. Ms. Foss must be in her own version of […]

    Taxing the Wind

    Letters to the editor: March 21, 2010

    Blowing hot and cold on wind   There are legitimate complaints about wind power, but grossly untrue statements by overzealous critics like Jonathan Carter (Maine Voices: “Wind power comes at great cost,” Feb. 28) do little to reveal them. He says the 48-tower Highland Mountains project in western Maine proposed by former Gov. Angus King […]

    Many ways exist to address public schools’ problems   I would like to add another perspective to the Press Herald editorial (“New high school plan needs more explanation,” Feb. 22) and Charles Lawton’s column (“Maine must measure its wants,” Feb. 7) calling for increased high school graduation rates. They both correctly state the career and […]

    Politicians won’t rein in spending   Sens. Olympia Snowe and Sen. Susan Collins and Rep. Chellie Pingree continue to vote for more and more spending. I’m sure their intentions are good. However, the big question many of us have is, who will pay these massive debts? Are there any taxpayers who understand who will pay? […]

    Evidence favoring Dechaine piles up Thanks to the Portland Press Herald for publishing an article on its front page about new opinions relating to the Dennis Dechaine case (“Analyses by two experts offer hope to Dechaine.” Feb. 25). It is interesting that the prosecutor in the case was not and is not interested in two […]
