    Fine against banks doesn’t seem to fit the crime

    The Nov. 13 headline, “Banks fined $4.3 billion in currency schemes,” really caught my eye. I thought, “Now we’re getting somewhere. Someone is being held accountable for their crimes.” Further reading, however, revealed a great disappointment. The article never informed this reader of the amount of cash these deceitful money managers actually got through their […]

    Hallowell officials unite behind federal Clean Air Act

    As a Hallowell resident, and member of the Hallowell bike-pedestrian committee, I am always happy to hear about people in our community who want to make a positive impact. Last month, the Hallowell mayor and City Council did just that. They passed a proclamation supporting the Clean Air Act, a landmark law that has been […]

    Nurse did amazing work with Ebola patients in Africa

    I was so saddened to hear that the nurse who worked with Ebola patients and her boyfriend moved to southern Maine. I would remind them that not all of Maine is as narrow-minded and driven by fear as those in Fort Kent appear to be. This nurse has done amazing work helping those who were ill in […]

    Tea partyers sow the wind; we shall reap whirlwind

    I come from a long way away, and I know a bad thing when I see it. For the same reason that no one ever pointed a telescope at the sun, why would anyone vote for Paul LePage or Bruce Poliquin? The tea partyers have sown the wind; now we shall reap the whirlwind. Edward […]

    Public land should be part of the community

    I hope our selectmen take up the offer from the Maine Forest Service to go for a walk on China public land soon, before the snow gets too deep. The more reasons more people have to be outside, the more interactions we can have with the land. Public land can be a land as part […]

    Interesting news tidbits that didn’t create headlines

    Some interesting tidbits of news came out lately that did not create headlines but were important. On election night, Fox News beat out the networks handily, overpowering NBC, CBS and ABC news. They swamped all the other cable news outlets and won the critical ages 25 to 54 groups. The race card was played election […]

    Military service one way to honor our values

    Veterans Day is set aside to honor all those who have served in the military. It is a day when we who are serving in Afghanistan are indescribably grateful for the love and support we receive from home, and we pause to honor those who have gone before us. I often wonder why some of […]

    Hunters harvest good meat for their families

    As a lifelong hunter, I want to respond to George Hunt’s Oct. 27 letter, “Hunters kill moose, bear because they enjoy killing.” I hunt because I would rather eat wild game than the meat produced on farms and sold in the stores. Wild animals have not been given growth hormones and grains containing all kinds […]

    Telephone calls from candidates unwanted, invasive

    The elections are finally over. I hope that in future elections using telephone calls from candidates will not be allowed. I have had so many unwanted telephone calls from candidates. It is an invasion of privacy and very annoying. Gail A. Kay Skowhegan
