    Maine secularists oppose Hobby Lobby ruling

    As one of the least religious states in the nation, Maine is home to a thriving and active secular population, whose members include Downeast Humanists and Freethinkers, Maine Atheists and Humanists, Central Maine Skeptical Society and Southern Maine Atheists and Secular Humanists, all supporting organizations of the Secular Coalition of Maine. We seek to promote […]

    Hobby Lobby ruling: Harmon tells truth, others don’t

    First, I would like to thank M.D. Harmon for his July 5 commentary, “This week’s Supreme Court rulings give believers a reason to celebrate,” about the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case. Secondly, I am grieved by the commentary by Tina Duprey, “Freedom for Hobby Lobby’s religion, but not everyone’s,” printed on July […]

    LePage’s governance brought shame, ridicule

    When Paul LePage removed the murals, he implied that the morals and integrity of Mainers are not worthy. Being from Maine was revered until his ignominious statements and governance brought us shame, ridicule in the national media. LePage’s rhetoric and apathetic relation with every sector of society’s workers is arrogant and biased. LePage’s obstinate and […]

    Roberts’ All Politics is Local column is a gem

    High fives to the newspaper for publishing Don Roberts’ column, “If people unite, just imagine what a wonderful world this could be,” on July 10, and handshakes to Roberts for submitting it. His column carries the name “All Politics Is Local,” but the range of the piece is worldwide: Congress convening in compromise; business and […]

    Democrat for Senate 23 supports alternative energy

    I am concerned about the effects of global climate change on the world in general and on Maine in particular. Increasing damage is resulting from the rising intensity of storms, floods, droughts and fires. A national report at riskybusiness.org predicts that annual costs from storm damage for Maine over a 20-year period are “most likely” […]

    Deputies put their lives on the line for $17 per hour

    Regarding the July 16 article about the Oxford County deputies’ picket line for a new contract. Scott Cole, county administrator, said the majority of the deputies earn more than $17 per hour. He didn’t say almost $18, so I have to assume that the majority earn just a little more than $17 per hour. Maybe […]

    LePage to blame for high cost of health care in Maine

    I recently moved to Readfield from a small township 20 minutes west of Pittsburgh. I am 64 and supply my own health care. When the Affordable Care Act became available, I priced my then-current health care with a policy through the health care law. I paid about $330 per month with my then-current policy, and […]

    Ambulance patients can choose their hospital

    With 30 years in the medical transportation field at Delta Ambulance, I often take for granted what I’ve absorbed over the years, realizing people in the community may be unaware of important medical choices they have. Options we have relating to our health are some of the most crucial considerations we can make throughout our […]

    No status in preparing for the economic worst

    Our state and federal governments have the potential to commit acts or allow others to commit acts that may be detrimental to our economy. It doesn’t matter if the acts are direct or indirect. It does matter if the results of those actions affect residents in the present, immediate future or even the distant future. […]

    Maybe more should study peace, instead of war

    I wonder what the world would look like and what our concerns could be if we spent as much money on training the world for peace as we spend on the art of war? I just want to inspire young people by encouraging them that there is a college, not too far away, where they […]
