    ‘Three Days of Rain’ incredible production

    I was one of the many in the audience at the opening performance of “Three Days of Rain” on March 9 at the ACAT Theater in Waterville. I wish to commend the three actors — Tim Croce, Heidi Holst and Evan Sposato — and director Joe Klapatch for their incredible dramatic acting and production of […]

    Some people can make do, take care of themselves

    Don’t drill, baby drill! I’m not going to argue. So what if gas or diesel hits $10 per gallon. I don’t care if the cost of a box of cereal gets up to 10 bucks. I don’t need to eat cereal. So what if a gallon on milk eventually costs 15 bucks. I have a […]

    Mainers, please believe in old-time values

    Citizens of Maine, please tell me you believe in the old values of man-woman marriage. In the Bible, God said man and woman should be married. I know Mainers believe in old-time values. In November, I hope Maine stands apart from other states. We do not have to vote the same way they do be […]

    Paul has pledged to keep America as a free country

    Anyone who has read James Perloff’s book, “The Shadows of Power,” knows that the well-entrenched Council on Foreign Relations seeks to subvert the United States into a socialist and tyrannical world government. Since most presidential candidates (both winners and losers) are either members of this elite group or have advisers who are, there is little […]

    Contraception problem or behavior excuse?

    Is the current fight about contraception a stratagem or a real issue? Is it more important for young women today to force insurance companies to pay for birth control? I was under the impression that Planned Parenthood was formulated for a commonsense approach to women’s rights. Isn’t 4NOW a no-cost program, along with other free […]

    Collins sold us out to extreme right-wing

    Susan Collins has finally shown her true colors. She made the shameful decision to vote to allow employers and insurance companies avoid paying for virtually any medical treatment or prescriptions by merely stating it is against their moral or religious beliefs. That means they could deny coverage for birth control, vaccinations or expensive cancer or […]

    Give coaches and teachers the support they need

    I would like to praise the teachers and coaches in the Augusta school system. The scholars and athletes the coaches turn out are outstanding. Our fifth granddaughter just graduated from college. Our five grandchildren have attended five different colleges in three different states; two more grandchildren are yet to attend. It is our job as […]

    Successful change requires a strong foundation

    As a Hall-Dale parent, I support the statements of concern and frustration in the recent article “Hall-Dale’s Grading System Raises Questions.” Despite the efforts of many, parents and students still are struggling to navigate Hall-Dale’s ever-changing grading system, curriculum and nomenclature. The mantra of “change is difficult,” so frequently directed at parents, is difficult to […]

    Proud of both Gardiner and its schools

    I enjoyed the Maine Compass from a Gardiner city councilor regarding the city’s conversion to wood pellet heat, until the article inexplicably turned negative regarding our local school board spending money and “hoping residents won’t notice.” As a resident of Gardiner, I see us as one community and, as such, the towns and schools should […]
