  • The mating ritual begins anew

    Dear Editor: The mating ritual starts anew, only this one takes place every two years. We are already being bombarded with campaign advertising in all forms of media that does not contain one bit of information that would help us make an informed decision how and who to vote for. The debate rages over who

  • Malaby goes above and beyond for kids

    Dear Editor: I would like to express my deep admiration and gratitude for the work that Rep. Richard Malaby has done to improve the Maine’s behavioral health services for children with mental health and/or developmental disability challenges. I am a child and adolescent psychiatrist. I was formerly the medical director of the Maine DHHS Office

  • King and Collins should wait on Kavanaugh

    Dear Editor: Maine is in crisis, and we voters better get deeply engaged with carefully choosing our next state legislative body. A vote is a powerful thing, and our future depends on each one of us wielding that choice well, and meeting our responsibilities as an informed electorate. Amongst other important votes, this fall, we

  • A comforting show of support

    Dear Editor: On July 5, you kindly published the article “Comforting foster kids one ‘case’ at a time,” written by Rachel Taylor. As a result, a TV segment was aired by News Center Maine on July 12. The response to these two pieces has been beyond my greatest expectations. Since then, more than 150 Comfort
