    Lake George Park triathlon well run, a great time

    Congratulations and thanks to Jeff McCabe from Lake George Regional Park and all the great people at the park and Somerset Sports and Fitness for organizing the second annual Lake George Regional Park Triathlon. They deserve a ton of credit for all the hard work. It was well run, well attended and a great time. […]

    Time to return to progressive vision of Jefferson

    I am writing to support the candidacy of Rebecca A. Cornell du Houx, a Democrat from Augusta, to represent for state Senate District 15. I am excited by her practical, yet progressive vision for Maine. She is energetic and will give her all for improving the lives of the citizens of this great state. It […]

    Hold Michaud accountable for false, misleading campaign ads

    I haven’t seen any criticisms of the accuracy of television ads from Gov. Paul LePage or Eliot Cutler, but Mike Michaud seems to have a pattern of false or misleading ads. His attack ad against Kevin Raye in 2012 failed this newspaper’s “truth test” and he took down an ad last year that was critical […]

    What would Nemitz write about if LePage loses?

    I suspect that Bill Nemitz secretly prays each night that Paul LePage wins a second term as governor. Why would the pit bull for Chellie Pingree and Donald Sussman want LePage to get a second term? Simple: 90 percent of his columns for the last four years have been focused on beating our governor like […]

    UMS board venue change an attempt to block public input

    As an alumna of the University of Southern Maine, class of 1979, I am appalled at the venue change of the University of Maine System Board of Trustees meeting to Fort Kent and can only view it as an intentional attempt to block USM student and faculty input. As a Maine taxpayer, I want all […]

    LePage’s record is hardly disgusting, dreadful

    Some say Gov. Paul LePage has done a horrible job. Let’s take a look. LePage has done so poorly that the jobless rate dropped from 7.9 percent in January 2011 to 5.5 percent in July 2014. Disgusting. Jobs? He increased jobs only by 18,000. Atrocious. He hates the poor to the extent that 70,000 low-income […]

    Collins doesn’t explain her votes to us common folk

    Sen. Susan Collins recently voted to end discussion of an amendment that sought to overturn Citizen’s United and to regulate corporate money in politics, riding straight into the embrace of the Koch brothers — an arrogant stance for someone claiming to be a moderate. “Corporations are people, too” for Collins. I think someone’s lead in […]

    Amnesty International seems to have shifted its role

    I was startled to read in the Sept. 16 newspaper the Maine Compass by Aquib Yacoob about the incidents in Ferguson, Mo., “‘Innocent until proven guilty’ also should apply before trigger is pulled.” I understood from his column that Amnesty International seems to be involved on a number of levels. Its mission apparently has been […]

    Elephants should not go back to abusers

    When James Laurita opened Hope Elephants, he assured supporters that funds would be used to help Rosie and Opal, and he vowed to provide sanctuary and veterinary care to elephants who had been retired from the circus. Sending Rosie and Opal back to the Carson & Barnes Circus compound would turn Laurita’s promise upside down. […]

    Disappointed in negative ads by Bellows

    As a state legislator, I have had the opportunity to interact with Shenna Bellows on a number of issues. She earned my respect and, although I strongly support Sen. Susan Collins, I was pleasantly surprised that Shenna was to be her Democratic opponent. I truly expected her to run a positive campaign, the type of […]
