    Patricia Bernard: See how things shake out

    The media are acting like the sky is falling because of the trade war going on with China. There is a lot of stuff the U.S. imports that people really don’t need — it just overflows the nation’s landfills. People in this country are not going to starve to death — we grow plenty of […]

    Peter Elias: Support education in Auburn

    I enthusiastically support funding and building the proposed new Edward Little High School. The current school is old and increasingly difficult and expensive to maintain. The planned new school is future-looking and extremely well thought out. It will serve not just our students and teachers but our entire community for the next several generations. To […]

    Andrew Hall: Another lie about border crisis

    Yet again the public is being told that there is a crisis at the Mexican border — massed hordes of murderous Mexican marauders coming across the border to rape God-fearing white women and slaughter helpless innocent citizens while laying waste to the country.

    Safiya Khalid: Promoting inclusiveness and increased voter participation

    Most people wouldn’t expect someone like me to be involved in politics. As a young black female activist, the odds are not in my favor.

    Judy Baird: What’s going on, Gov. Mills?

    I can’t help but wonder — what has happened to Gov. Janet Mills? She is so gung-ho for that transmission line foolishness that would cut through Maine.

    Cal Thomas: My sentimental journey with Doris Day

    It was Oscar Levant who uttered the famous line: “I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin.” In a way it was a backhanded compliment to a woman who represented in most of her film roles an image of chastity and virtue that was once mostly promoted in American culture, though not always practiced […]

    Leonard Pitts: The Republican Party working to repeal the 20th century

    The Republican Party’s appeal, it has occasionally been argued in this space, stems largely from an implicit promise: Vote for us and we will repeal the 20th century.
