    Wind power doesn’t live up to claims

    Foreign-owned industrial wind companies are intruding here, damaging Maine's sensitive wild places and hurting lives of those who depend upon a flourishing tourism. It's a get-rich-quick scheme. Our tax dollars are up for grabs in the form of government subsidies.

    On gambling, the ends do not justify the means

    Oftentimes, a moral dilemma is debated in terms of the question "Do the ends justify the means?"

    Merger reasons should give pause for concern

    This is in response to Rep. Robert Nutting's, R-Oakland, (Maine Compass, Oct. 24) concern that Sprint is spreading false e-mails on the AT&T acquisition of T-Mobile.

    Deal in facts, Democrats, and stop blaming Bush

    Isn't it amazing how some people can twist facts and tell half truths to make a person sound bad, when in fact they really do not know the facts (i.e. Carol Roux, letter, Oct. 30).

    Expand access to treatment to aid addcits

    Based on my observations and knowledge with Suboxone, it needs to be easier to prescribe and easier for people to obtain from their physicians and clinics. There are many people who have stated that they would be clean if they could simply get a prescription of Suboxone; these people need to be helped.
