    At least one legislator is paying attention to voters

    I’d like to thank Sen. Tom Saviello, R-Wilton, for responding quickly to my letters to the editor and for the concern he has about all the matters that I have addressed. His actions have amended my negative feelings about some of our politicians. Maybe Saviello should be the one running for president, because I am […]

    Mayor confident about marijuana dispensary

    It’s been nearly two years since voters approved the sale and use of medical marijuana for qualifying patients in Maine. Since that time, licenses to operate dispensaries have been awarded to eight health districts across the state, including Hallowell. As the city’s mayor, I have been working with state and local law enforcement, along with […]

    Vehicles are not toys, but powerful machines

    I just read another article about another young adult dying in a car accident. When will these young adults, whether it be a teenager or a 20-something, realize that a vehicle is a very powerful machine and that they are to be taken seriously, not thought of as a toy? Kathy Allen Waterville

    Our bankrupt country should cut all foreign aid

    Amazing, isn’t it, that the 80-plus millionaires in Washington, D.C., have no interest in bailing out Social Security, Medicare or the postal service?

    Bible-believing Christians must make voices heard

    Can it be that we are faced with another presidential primary? Oh, woe is me! A well-known evangelical leader (and author) Francis Schaeffer has asked, “Where has the faith community (evangelical, etc.) been for the last 40 years?” I don’t think they have been at the voting booth because secular forces in the United States […]

    Stranger stayed with victim of accident until help came

    I would like to express my appreciation to the people who stopped and assisted my mother after her automobile accident on Dec. 2 on U.S. Route 201A. It is wonderful to know there are still people willing to help a stranger in a time of need. It was so comforting for me to know that […]

    Take a close look at gas company’s TIF requests

    I have read the many stories about Kennebec Valley Gas Co.’s requests for tax relief. Madison recently held a referendum to ask voters to bond for the development of a natural gas pipeline from Richmond to Madison. Our board of selectmen was in favor of the project. Before the vote, Kennebec Valley Gas Co. paid […]
