    Letter to the editor: Ride provider fails to follow through for Maine patients

    My concern is how LogistiCare runs. I’m a former rider with them. There have been times when I had an appointment at the doctor’s office. The driver would come one hour before my appointment and wouldn’t pick me up until an hour and a half after. There were times when I had another appointment on […]

    Letter to the editor: Change in number, timing of signals could make it easier to navigate Cottage Road

    As a new resident on Cottage Road, we are very much enjoying what South Portland has to offer. The one concern that we have is the traffic on Cottage Road – particularly Portland inbound traffic. I believe there have been community meetings intended to discuss the mitigation of the volume of traffic, as well as […]

    Letter to the editor: Americans’ murders should deter NFL from competing in Mexico

    I was just thinking, while watching the Nov. 19 football game between the Chargers and the Chiefs from Mexico City: Doesn’t playing this game in a country that is controlled by drug cartels and where nine American women and children recently were murdered by these cartels give the NFL pause about playing in this country, […]

    Letter to the editor: We’re allowing Trump, Republicans to downplay outrageous conduct

    I’m a Democrat. But sometimes I shudder. I wish, for instance, that Republicans have been the ones sounding the alarm of climate change, with Democrats the deniers. Could there be a worse way to generate alarm than to refer to an impending global disaster as “global warming” evoking feelings of comfort and coziness? Only marginally […]

    Letter to the editor: Mainers expect better from Sen. Collins

    My father and mother were Republican voters for most of their adult lives. One of my standout memories is my father explaining having to fire a longtime colleague in his university department for falsifying travel expense reports. I equated being Republican with having high integrity. My sense now, after watching President Trump, is radically different. […]

    Letter to the editor: Why isn’t Collins standing up to Trump?

    In response to President Trump’s tweet calling Democrats “human scum,” I take note of the fact that no elected Republican has responded to this demonizing of more than half of the American electorate with a rebuke to the current resident of the White House for his repugnant words. Although I know Americans have grown numb […]

    Letter to the editor: Time to end the two-party prison

    In his Nov. 24 column, Editorial Page Editor Greg Kesich writes, “As the old saying goes, people are entitled to their own opinions but not to their own facts.” The same rule applies to the media. On the same page as the column,  your editorial is headlined: “Impeachment inquiry justified by evidence.” Every day, the […]

    Letter to the editor: Trump committed impeachable offenses

    Bill Clinton lied and covered up a sexual relationship with an intern. Richard Nixon had Democratic headquarters burglarized to help his election and with the help of his White House staff lied to the American people and tried to cover it up. Donald Trump, enlisting the help of his White House staff, personal lawyer, EU […]
