    Ellen Field: Trump ‘a totally immoral man’

    President Trump grabs women inappropriately, calls them ugly names, and mocks them. He’s been accused of assault by many women and reportedly cheated on all three wives. He promotes violence and thinks protesting should be forbidden. He dislikes John McCain and others in the military and never served (“bone spurs”). He also dislikes the disabled […]

    Deanna Nyberg: Support for Laurel Libby

    Maine’s budget is in big trouble. We had a surplus two years ago; sadly today we’re $1 billion short due to overspending. To get out of this horrible predicament, the state Legislature needs to understand the difference between a want and a need. This task will require common sense, creativity, a clear vision for the […]

    In rebuttal: Scott Roberts: Four seasons, one life

    Al Castagna, who wrote in favor of letting students play sports in the pandemic (Sun Journal, Sept. 18) because “[t]hey only get four seasons!” should be reminded of a more important number: one, as in the one life they get. Scott Roberts, Livermore Falls

    Matthew Theriault: Libby for House District 64

    In today’s climate of unrest and stagnation, Laurel Munsell Libby will provide House District 64 with the representation and leadership that is sorely needed in our Maine Legislature.

    Susan Weiss: Supporting Ned Claxton

    I am writing as an educator to let people know about Ned Claxton’s record on education and to encourage voters to reelect Ned to the Maine State Senate. Many, many people admire Ned for his medical knowledge and advice, but do they know that Ned co-sponsored a bill to address student hunger? This bill keeps […]

    Peg Hoffman: Vote for Jared Golden

    I urge the reelection of Jared Golden to the U.S. House of Representatives. In his first two years in Congress, Jared has worked to ensure that all Mainers have strong, accessible health care. Now, when our health and safety are at risk from COVID-19, Jared has worked to defeat efforts to undermine that vital protection. […]

    Kurt Oswald: Praise for truth in reporting

    I most heartily applaud Mark LaFlamme for his column on the importance of truth in reporting from Sept. 16. The blatant pandering to one political party and the inequitable negative coverage of its competition is just another form of truth manipulation. We need more reporters who do not project their ideology into reporting. As Detective […]

    Cynthia Stancioff: Support for Greg Kimber

    These days the importance of restoring the environment seems to me to surpass all the other pressing crises: Without a functioning planet, all our other problems are moot. So when I learned that state Rep. Randy Hall (Chesterville, Wilton, New Vineyard, Strong, Industry, Temple) voted against virtually every environment-related bill in his first term of […]

    Rebecca Myers: Public health is paramount

    Our economy is currently in a huge amount of trouble. However badly we wish it were otherwise, we simply cannot have economic health without public health. The highly contagious virus that randomly sickens and kills people simply has to be brought under control before the economy can recover. Keeping distance from this virus, especially wearing […]

    Daniel Buck Soules: Support for Jeff Timberlake

    As a business man most of my 62 years, I have come to appreciate the amount of hard work that it takes to have a successful business. As an internationally-recognized appraiser and auctioneer, I have to make evaluations of items that can potentially be of high value. I have come to personally know a man, […]
