    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 […]

    Letters to the editor: Readers make their final pitches before Election Day

    A few days ago I went to hear Eliot Cutler speak about promoting the creative economy in Maine and came away inspired. He addressed directly a big issue on the minds of many: If we vote for him are we making it more likely that Paul LePage will win the election? I don’t think so […]

    More letters to the editor: Letters pour in on endorsements, candidates, issues

    It is inaccurate and completely overblown to suggest that Paul LePage has not been accessible or visible as part of his campaign for Maine governor. I would list the 29 campaign forums and televised debates that Paul LePage has or will participate in since the end of August, but I have limited space to respond. […]

    Letters to the editor: Support candidates who invest in kids

    Thanks to the Press Herald for shedding the truth on Maine’s welfare system in your recent series. Some gubernatorial candidates are running on a platform stating that fixing the welfare system is a solution to our economic woes. Really? The Press Herald series set the record straight regarding many stereotypes about welfare, including the low […]

    Letters to the editor: Many good reasons to renovate SPHS

    I have given much consideration to the South Portland High School renovation issue. I had many questions which were answered at the renewsphs.org and South Portland websites and by tours of the facility. I urge residents to support this bond question by voting “yes.” I am a cautious spender, particularly in this economy, and wanted […]

    More letters to the editor: Race in 1st District getting down to the wire

    In the race for the state’s 1st Congressional District seat, the contrast between incumbent Chellie Pingree and challenger Dean Scrontras could hardly be starker. Whatever the voters were expecting, Chellie Pingree has turned out to be one of the most liberal members of Congress. Pingree shares with President Obama the conviction that government can solve […]
