    Letter to the editor: Cumberland County Sheriff Joyce’s work praised

    As a past Cumberland County commissioner, I am expressing my support for Sheriff Kevin Joyce’s re-election. During my tenure, I observed him skillfully struggle to provide adequate public services and police protection for communities with a minimum budget; he serves the county’s communities with a bare-bones budget while protecting the county’s citizens. When asked to […]

    Letter to the editor: Officers commend Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce

    Former and current law enforcement officers asked to have their thoughts on Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce presented – not to tarnish the opposition, but rather to speak of positive traits and professionalism of someone respected.

    I worked with Sub Sea Research during the 2009 season. I lived and worked on the M/V Sea Hunter alongside Greg Brooks and the other crew members.

    Letter to the editor: Sen. Collins uses our tax money to buy support of BIW unions

    So, Sen. Susan Collins has received the endorsement of all four unions at Bath Iron Wor – I mean, General Dynamics (“Collins wins BIW union endorsements,” April 24). Well, like I always say: Follow the money! In this case, our tax dollars. Susan Collins sits on the Senate “Defense” Appropriations Committee. She plays a large […]

    Letter to the editor: Modern art has no place in Portland’s Victoria Mansion

    I read with interest the excellent Daniel Kany review titled “Art inspired by Portland mansion takes different views” in the April 27 Maine Sunday Telegram. I worked on the staff of the Victoria Mansion as educational coordinator from 1989 to 1993 under director Bruce Sherwood, and he would turn in his grave if he could […]

    Letter to the editor: Providing hospice care is rewarding work

    As a hospice caretaker of two years, I would like to speak to the way this work is so often presented in such a dim and negative way by the press (“Home care gives hope to seniors and low pay to workers,” April 27). Thanks to the per diem nature of hospice care, I am […]

    Letter to the editor: Palin’s baptism comment is a slap to the face of Christians

    Sarah Palin said, “If I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.” Thank goodness she is not in charge! Christians may disagree on some theological concepts and biblical interpretations. But Christians do not argue with each other when it comes to the sacrament of baptism. To equate baptism with […]

    Letter to the editor: Where was Press Herald story on BIW unions supporting Sen. Collins?

    As a lifelong Bath resident with three family members earning a living at Bath Iron Works, I was keenly interested in the news that all four unions at BIW endorsed Susan Collins for re-election to the U.S. Senate. While that story made the front page of our local newspaper, it was not deemed worthy of […]

    I would like to thank William Keith for his letter to the editor of April 23 (“In move to Gray, Narrow Gauge Railroad would give up ocean view”), asking some important questions regarding the relocation of Maine Narrow Gauge to the town of Gray. While he claims to be an uneducated man, I would say […]
