    Governor makes decrees like a dictator

    I can’t help but think that Moammar Gadhafi also would have removed a labor mural from one of his buildings. I’m not implying our governor is a dictator, but he seems to be conducting himself as one. He makes a decrees and it will be done, no further discussion. What’s next? Attacking the citizens? Oh […]

    As to the location and witnesses of my birth …

    Our State Department is now proposing that we fill out a biographical questionnaire (DS-5513) before we are awarded a passport. Question 11 inquires about the location and witnesses to our birth. Below is my reply: In regards to the history on the location and witnesses to my birth, I’d like to say that my mother, […]

    Maine retirement system ‘too generous’

    The current Maine state retirement system has two problems: * It’s not sustainable. * It’s too generous compared to Social Security. Hard-pressed taxpayers should not be paying for this generosity. The www.maineopengov.org website is worth investigating for Maine pension facts. A quick comparison shows that Maine pensions are far more generous than those provided by […]

    How are Legislature, LePage cutting back?

    With all of the talk about cutting this and cutting that, I’d like to know what the Legislature and Paul LePage are doing in their respective areas to cut back. A $40,000 salary for an entry-level position for an assistant with no relevant experience seems a bit extreme to me. Dawna Myrick Farmingdale

    ‘We are being exploited, and that needs to stop’

    The last couple of years we have heard about the deficit and how are we going to pay this money back. Here are a few suggestion that might help a little: * All of our politicians in Washington, D.C., should take a cut in pay. * They should pay for their own health insurance benefit […]

    Was historical wall life-threatening to Maine?

    Nothing better to do? Was the Maine historical wall so life-threatening that it had to come down, had to be moved? Who voted for this so-called governor? Hope you’re happy. Gov. Paul LePage had to come in and take right over to let everyone know he can do what he wants. Forget about the Maine […]

    LePage again shows his ‘ignorance, insensitivity’

    Gov. Paul LePage has done it again — shown his ignorance and insensitivity. Now he has removed a mural in the Department of Labor building that depicted the history of Maine workers. Why? During his campaign, and since, he has declared that he is working for the people of Maine, not special interests. Doesn’t seem […]

    ‘Kennebec Journal should be ashamed of itself’

    A young man was killed in a tragic accident on my road Monday night. After reading today’s “Augusta man dies in rollover” article in your newspaper, I went from sad to furious. I can’t understand why the newspaper felt the need to mention his criminal record from his teen years. It is totally irrelevant to […]

    More important news than stories about mural

    There are definitely more important things to report on, or at least put on the front page, than to run several days about a mural.

    Comment about accident victim could have been cut

    I read in the Kennebec Journal about the young man who died in a rollover in Winthrop. Isn’t it bad enough for the family to grieve for their loved one, let alone you having to put at the end of report that he happened to be one of the three Gardiner Area High School seniors […]
