    Letter to the editor: Good editorial – but it’s just ‘Katahdin’

    The translation of the original Abenaki name is 'greatest mountain,' so the preface 'Mount' or 'Mt.' is redundant.

    Letter to the editor: Collins’ confirmation votes helped undercut citizens’ voting rights

    Susan Collins has done it again. Now it’s about as official as it gets. The Supreme Court has opined: Politicians can choose their own voters. Political gerrymandering somehow doesn’t strike five of the justices, bursting with partisan bias, as violating the Constitution’s direction that citizens shall do the electing. What twisted logic is needed to […]

    Letter to the editor: Trail praised by columnist would be devastated by CMP plan

    I’d like to address Carey Kish’s June 23 Hiking in Maine column, “Credit the Nature Conservancy for fabulous trail in Leuthold Forest Preserve” (Page C8). It is a lovely description of a great hike up Number Five Mountain, one that I’ve taken long before the Leuthold Forest Preserve was involved. In reading Kish’s account, I […]

    Letter to the editor: Ill-timed mass exodus disrespectful to theater performers

    I’ve been a Maine State Music Theatre patron since the Victoria Crandall days. Last Wednesday afternoon I attended the opening performance of “Treasure Island” at the theater. It was a fantastic show and, as always, well done. As the show ended and the performers started to present themselves for their well-deserved recognition, a very, very […]

    Letter to the editor: CMP’s issues should cast doubt on corridor project

    Kudos to the Press Herald for digging into Central Maine Power’s ongoing billing issues (June 23). This investigative piece is a great service to Maine and CMP’s customers. You’ve shown how CMP’s longtime project to switch over to smart metering and upgrade their billing system has been a disaster in so many ways. Their lies, […]

    Letter to the editor: State should provide better oversight of CMP

    A Press Herald/Telegram investigation clearly details the process that led to stress, worry and unnecessary expense for thousands of customers.

    Letter to the editor: Democrats’ vision must include our nation’s heartland

    Before we know it, the most contentious electoral period in our history will be over. If Democrats win, how will we pick up the pieces? From our beginnings, Americans living on the two coasts and in a few in-between areas near major waterways have been blessed with great universities, jobs and municipal systems. To our […]

    Letter to the editor: CMP ill-equipped to carry out power line project

    Re: “CMP misled the public, mismanaged rollout of new billing system” (June 23): Given Central Maine Power’s incompetence, few, if any, of us would hire them to build a driveway. The state of Maine, however, thinks Central Maine Power capable of managing the construction of a large, complicated project (which should never be built) in […]

    Letter to the editor: Shuttle would ease Commercial Street congestion, benefit multiple stakeholders

    The need to protect the working waterfront and the need to limit and control traffic on Commercial Street are deeply intertwined. We need an integrated solution for what’s happening on inner Commercial Street, including reducing the number of vehicles arriving and leaving every day.  A well-designed shuttle service, focused on Commercial Street and the Portland […]

    Letter to the editor: Sculptor Pettegrow’s proposal best choice for planned Portland roundabout

    I have enthusiastically followed the news about the selection of the artists for the Portland roundabout art commission at the intersection of Brighton and Deering avenues and Falmouth Street. At a gateway to the city, it’s important that the sculpture convey a sense of strength and permanence, and be a warm welcome to the students, […]
