    Letter to the editor: A vote for Cooper is a vote for Ogunquit

    I am writing in support of Elaine Cooper, who is running for Budget Review Committee in Ogunquit. Ogunquit is blessed with a highly skilled population of retirees. Elaine is one of these retirees. She ran a successful hands-on business and as a result has a deep understanding of the balance that needs to be struck […]

    Letter to the editor: Michael Bennet worth a look for president

    It is demoralizing to think of a second term for a president who has caused so much harm in such a short period of time. We already see huge federal debt, climate degradation and emboldened dictators. The list seems endless, and all in the name of short-term profits with no thought of the future. How […]

    Letter to the editor: Vote Giftos for Scarborough school board

    I am supporting Alicia Giftos for school board in Scarborough. Alicia held firm on her promise this past year. She brought the same passion to our schools that she brings daily representing children and families in the courts. She led one of the most successful budget votes our town has seen in recent history. She […]

    Letter to the editor: Republic can’t survive with Trump in office

    Backed by our American military, Kurdish fighters have fought the ISIS threat for over five years and sacrificed 10,000 lives in this cause.  Until this past week ISIS captives were being guarded by our Kurdish allies and peace was established along the Turkey, Syria border with joint U.S. and Turkey patrols.  Now that is all […]

    Letter to the editor: Trump will lead GOP to major losses

    A word to the wise: In the face of undisputed illegal behavior by the president, the vast majority of Republican politicians have nothing to say. The most that (just a few) Republican politicians can muster are calculated statements of concern. There is no doubt that the House will bring articles of impeachment against this man […]

    Letter to the editor: Democrats don’t appear better than Trump

    Listening to the Democratic debate of Oct. 15, hearing the discourse, the disagreements and the interruptions the entire broadcast ,one thought came to mind: There was not one person on that stage who wasn’t more polite, respectful and qualified than the person who holds the office for now.

    Letter to the editor: Syria pullout defies military-industrial complex

    Unsurprisingly, President Trump’s critics breathlessly lambasted his decision to withdraw a minuscule contingent of American troops and military observers from Syria. One loyal congressional Trump ally called this move “sickening.” Based on mainstream media accounts, one would think a massive troop withdrawal is underway; this is astonishingly inaccurate news. The commander in chief is redeploying […]

    Letter to the editor: Collins should defend Constitution, impeach Trump

    I’m a veteran from Brunswick, and I personally believe the commander in chief should live up to our highest standards and values. For that reason, and for the security of our country and the sanctity of our elections, I believe Donald Trump must be impeached. I served overseas, and I know firsthand the risks and […]

    Letter to the editor: To save Maine’s birds, we must reduce emissions

    It is almost unthinkable that many Maine birds could be gone by 2100 because of the climate crisis, according to a recent study by the National Audubon Society (“Maine’s birds imperiled by a changing climate,” Oct. 11, Page A1). To limit the devastation, Audubon calls for 100 percent conversion to renewable energy, which will reduce […]
