    Letter to the editor: Don’t be fooled by anti-Collins partisan ads

    I find it ironic that the recent spate of political ads criticizing Sen. Susan Collins for accepting corporate donations were in fact paid for by out-of-state political action committees and liberal donors. Hypocrisy doesn’t play well in Maine, and I am convinced most Mainers will see through this political hack job. Rest assured that if […]

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

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

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

    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.
