    Letter to the editor: Sen. Collins rightly values people over political ‘victory’

    During this time of political upheaval, a group of about a dozen neighbors has been meeting weekly to consider how to let our voices be heard on matters of current contention in our nation’s life, particularly health care and immigration. As people with a strong sense that our religious values call us to work for […]

    Letter to the editor: Liberal Press Herald in no position to say that Sinclair Broadcasting is biased

    I must say, I was amused to read, in the Maine Sunday Telegram, an article criticizing another news media company, Sinclair Broadcasting, basically for being biased – in this case, conservatively, which you accurately point out (“Pro-Trump commentary tunes out critics,” Page B1, July 30). However, the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram certainly doesn’t have […]

    Letter to the editor: Reader welcomes pro-Trump views on WGME, WPFO

    I find it perplexing that you would oppose commentary supportive of President Trump in the broadcast media (“Pro-Trump commentary tunes out critics,” by Colin Woodard, Page B1, July 30) when you, as part of the print media, bash the administration and Republican legislative efforts on a daily basis. Is the left-wing media bias you present […]

    Letter to the editor: History of specious federal inquiries makes case for nonpartisan group

    Alan Caron’s July 30 column, “The ghosts of investigations past,” took us through the history of endlessly hypocritical investigations the parties use to embarrass each other, to no good end for the U.S. Mr. Caron ended his op-ed perfectly with “Want to make America great again? Forget the idea that one party has all the […]

    Letter to the editor: LePage administration brags about surplus as life gets worse for vulnerable Mainers

    Re: “State ends fiscal year with $111 million surplus” (July 26): As this administration brags about the surplus, Maine has seen a 50 percent increase over the last five years for children living in poverty – the sharpest increase of any state in the nation. As this administration brags about the surplus, 48,000 Maine children […]

    Letter to the editor: Maine taxpayers have right to records from governor’s travels

    Re: “LePage says misuse of public access law is disruptive, costing ‘thousands’ ” (July 27): Gov. LePage now proclaims that the public access law is meant to disrupt his administration. Why? Because the Portland Press Herald has requested that his office document the $35,000-plus he and his minions spent on luxury hotels and restaurants during […]

    Letter to the editor: CMP ‘smart meters’ might not be so wise for customers

    Is Central Maine Power ripping you off? They certainly were ripping me off. And it’s directly related to the “smart meter” they installed at my house in 2013. Since I changed to an analog meter in January, my usage has dropped 155 percent, compared to the same time last year. Yet CMP insists my meter […]

    Letter to the editor: Europe must shake its head over U.S.-caused refugees

    Imagine how furious and disgusted European leaders are with President Trump’s proposed skills-based immigration system after they accepted tens of thousands of Middle Eastern refugees whose plight can legitimately be traced back to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Larry Kaplan Cape Elizabeth

    Letter to the editor: Gov. LePage’s scold of Sen. King’s commitment to Maine is unfair

    Gov. LePage has wrongfully chided independent U.S. Sen. Angus King, who does gather comments from the specific supporters in Maine whom he represents. Sen. King keeps his email correspondents apprised of his activities while in Maine. There is no reason the governor would have taken time to notice that. Thus, the governor wrote in The […]

    Letter to the editor: White House adviser Stephen Miller is ‘ignorant,’ not CNN reporter he chided over immigration questioning

    I believe that White House senior adviser Stephen Miller’s statements at an Aug. 2 news conference are outrageous, as are his attempts to vilify CNN reporter Jim Acosta for his questioning of Miller’s remarks about immigrants needing to speak English in order to be allowed into the country. Acosta, a first-generation Cuban-American, reminded Miller of […]
