A profitable hoax?

To the editor: Is global warming a hoax? Does it help drive the price up and increase big oil profits? The thought came to me the other day. Fuel efficiency almost tripled since the 1970s, but what has the price done? More...

Approves of ban

To the editor: I’m so glad that the Brunswick Town Council voted to ban the sale and personal use of fireworks in town. Fireworks are dangerous in the wrong hands. More...

We are to blame

To the editor: In an article you recently ran concerning hearings on proposed Maine Department of Health and Human Services reductions, a speaker noted that a society is judged on how it cares for its poor. I disagree. More...
