Every year here in Rockland, we host the Maine Lobster Festival, which draws visitors from other parts of New England and all across the country.

As a reminder, to those who knew Sergeant Detective Donald E. Davey of the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department, he was a devoted husband, a loving father, a kind, generous neighbor, a man of faith, loyal to his country, supported the freedoms we enjoy, and protected the public's welfare . . .

A Lot of People Care, Let Them Vote-
I am a member of the Rockport Library Committee. I support building a new library at the RES site. The Library Committee has been examining the options for the future of our library for several years, the latest work done by the Library Steering Committee. I am excited about the possibility of having a . . .

If you like our Governor, vote for the senate incumbent in Waldo County's state senate race. If not, vote for Jonathan Fulford for State Senate. I am.

Re the Trial and Conviction of Reed Black-
There have been a few times in my life when, psychologically, I felt like a man was smiling at me just before he hit me in the head with a rock and pushed me off a cliff. That is probably the main reason why I chose to witness the Reed Black trial last week. The case caught my heart. . . .

The War on Terror-
It is a soul-crushing horror to watch Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli army do to the Palestinian families trapped in Gaza what Adolf Hitler and the Nazi soldiers did to the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto. Israeli politicians call this mechanized murder "mowing the grass." . . .

Allow the Vote on the Rockport Library-
Relative to the Rockport Library, in the past few months opposing sides have exhibited divisive behavior unworthy of our small community. The level of acrimony is terrible modeling for younger generations and threatens to scar the well-being of our town for many years. Given the energy and passion . . .

In Support of Eliot Cutler-
I am writing in support of Eliot Cutler's candidacy to be Maine's next governor because I believe him to be the best suited for the job of those currently running. I supported him in his previous run for the Blaine House in 2010, and have been very impressed by the outreach he and his organization . . .

Logical Choice to Represent Waldo County in the State Senate-
Waldo County voters are aware by now that there is an obvious connection between energy efficiency and our regional economic prospects. As a practical thinker, builder Jonathan Fulford grasps the importance of building homes which leave the least possible carbon footprint. . . .

How Much More-
We read that Cutler "bravely supported universal background checks for weapon sales." A man who knows he can't win can bravely support anything. He has already given us the man we have in the Blaine House today and one might well ask how much more of Mr. Cutler's beneficence Maine can stand. . . .

In Response to "As Maine Went"-
Looked for a job lately? It's hard. If I were queen of the country, here is my list of minimum requirements for a person running for high office, such as Congress, governor, or president. . . .
