    To encourage peace, live peacefully

    Many claim to want peace, so they put up signs of peace. Peace starts with you. If you want peace, you must live the most loving, peaceful life possible in all aspects of your life. The dove has become a symbol of peace. The reason is because the dove is a peaceful bird. Joy Sirois […]

    Let’s recognize caregivers as truly unsung heroes

    Every day, a remarkable group of Mainers performs a great labor of love: caring for aging parents, spouses, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and friends so they can remain in their homes. They are on duty 24/7, and often cannot take a break. Yet they wouldn’t have it any other way. These caregivers are truly unsung […]

    Horses havea past, and future, in Maine

    I thank the editors and staff of the newspaper for their handling of the front page article, “Bailey painting comes home,” (Nov. 19). The breeding of the Standardbred horse and the sport of harness racing is a tradition at Maine’s agricultural fairs. The work of a harness horseman is far more than the two minutes […]

    Settling some scores following the election

    I would like to thank the Morning Sentinel and the Kennebec Journal for the left-standing (oops, that should have been outstanding) coverage during this election year. Your political ads, editorials and letters to the editor must certainly have been sufficient for any liberal worthy of their Volvo. One question does come to mind for all […]

    Time may be running out on our Republic

    It seems that we all, each of us, need to ask ourselves: — Do you want a country that enforces all of its duly passed laws equally and totally or where one top executive can decide which law, or parts of laws, to enforce? — Do you want a country where a top executive can […]

    A new idea for funding relief for veterans

    First off, congratulations to Sen. Susan Collins on her recent re-election. She should be very proud of the positive and clean campaign she ran. It should be a true model for all politicians. I am writing to her because of her longtime support for veterans. There was recently a poignant political cartoon showing a split […]

    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 […]

    My husband, Donn, and I wish to thank the generous couple who paid for our lunch on Sunday at Joseph’s Fireside Steak House. Happy Thanksgiving to both of you. Lucette Wolfe Winslow

    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 […]
