Senate President Justin Alfond invite

Sure Justin, as long as you stop stalking the governor, a great idea. Can you do it?

Political signs

Hi Frank. I hear you. I always put my signs on the front lawns of my friends, never along the side of the road, so you couldn't reach me Frank, without a living room entrance with your truck.. :) Biggest issue I have with these signs, is many are left in place, only to dirty up the landscape.

Campaign Signs-Dates

For once the ALCU is on the right track. Why would any municipality try to regulate temporary political signs on private property. Once again an encroachment on private property.

Kudos to the ALCU- and to the towns and cities, that are holding off the enforcement of their denial of signs on private property. The six-week ban is an excellent law.

Good luck Clint. Auburn will be well served. Hermon's loss.

Winter in 2012

It's been a lousy winter.

Super Bowl Half Time.

Nothing spectacular, as one would expect. The best ad for me was the one with the beautiful Great Dane. Oh well, another year has passed on football.

Mayor Gilbert's leaving

Always good to read about Bangor's former City Manager, Ed Barrett. Ed did an excellent job in managing Bangor. Very unwise move by a few City Councilor's brought Ed's journey to an end, however, it also brought an end to a couple of Councilor's terms,just a few months ago.

Lewiston's major gain, and Bangor's huge loss.

Glenn Aho

Nice job Glenn. Sounds like you have tried to streamline municipal government, and ran into a cement wall. Change is difficult, especially if employee's have been on-board for years. It sure will be interesting to see where your ideas prosper in times to come. Good luck.

Fireworks ban by City Council

Unfortunate. Give the people the opportunity, and see how it works out. The law can always be changed. We here in Brewer are on the verge of approving the use and sale. Bangor has said NO. Hence, citizens of that city will be coming to Brewer, purchase and enjoy themselves back home. Meanwhile, the Bangor police will be forced to spend hours and hours, trying to track down those 'violators'.

Candidates night.

Also, where is the press? They very well could have asked the same question. Lame.
