    Reed Black trial, conviction There have been a few times in my life when I felt, psychologically, that 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. Lisa Zahn miraculously lived to bring him to trial and I needed to see how the wheel of justice would …

    False attacks I, Wayne Leach, am speaking for myself, both as an individual, and as a member of the group of four Maine men who identify ourselves as either the Constitutional Coalition and/or Constitution Coalition. A constant barrage of unproven, false attacks were, and are still being made against our group, and against us, individually. These attacks originated with, were instigated by, and continue to be …

    Saddened I was a little confused by your July 10 editorial. You say you find it “curious” the current Republican Speaker of the House seems not to be bothered by the signing statements and executive actions engaged in by former President George W. Bush, a Republican. I don’t find that curious, it is called “party loyalty.” Yet you validate the proposed lawsuit against this Democratic president for the same …

    Another view The article in Another View (June 19) accused the Humane Society of advancing this November’s bear referendum as a prelude to ending all bear hunting. When other states prohibited hounding and baiting, interest in fair-chase bear hunting actually increased. Colorado, Washington, and Oregon all prohibited baiting and hounding more than 20 years ago, and since then the number of bear hunters has risen …

    Monsters It is difficult for me to understand how people can be so cruel! Whoever placed the six two-week old kittens near the trash compactor in Rockland is not human. They are monsters. They could have taken them to the shelter and given them a chance to live. Whoever you are, you are not part of the human race. A mother cat, already at the shelter, is nursing the kittens. This mother can has a gunshot wound …

    Changes are afoot Tremendous changes are afoot in healthcare, and they affect us not only nationally but here in our local communities. There has been much discussion in local newspapers and among all of us regarding how we are beginning to respond to these changes. However one thing will not change, the medical staff at Pen Bay Medical Center is committed to providing outstanding care to members of our Midcoast …

    Openness needed There have been some interesting Letters to the Editor about impending changes to PBMC staffing. What sadly seems to be lacking is any truly illuminating comment from PBMC’s Board of Trustees, active Medical Staff, Administration, Mr. Frederick (COO) and Mr. Biscone (interim CEO). What has been stated is sketchy commentary concerning deficits and chronic “operating in the red” (not uncommon for a …

    Rockland hotel support I am writing this letter in support of the proposed new hotel planned for 250 Main St., Rockland. By way of background I live one block from the hotel site on Main Street. I have worked in Rockland for the past 31 years for two different banks as a commercial loan officer retiring in January of this year. I have known Cabot Lyman, the hotel developer, for over 35 years when he and his wife, …

    Boomtown The proposed Lyman “boutique” hotel has received a lot of attention in Rockland. Resident taxpayers, like myself, are worried about it. And rightly so. This building points to the way Rockland development is likely to go, what kind of city is ahead. We can sort of see the future and it is not for most of us. Hot on the heels of the Lyman hotel proposal, waiting to solicit the Rockland City Planning Board …
