To the editor: We all know it’s not a multimillion dollar grant or a huge tax break offered to a large employer. We see the real economic engines by looking down the street at what’s been around for 10 years or more.

To the editor: The Governor’s press secretary began the town hall meeting in Presque Isle by asking for respect from the audience, and the audience was respectful throughout the nearly 2-hour meeting during which the governor scattered disrespect in wide-flung directions.

To the editor: Cause and effect, action and reaction: Bulldozers can level mountains and words can move humans to do the same. Needless to say, I spent whole of Sunday, 12 June, on Twitter, tweeting about this horrendous massacre of 49 people and the wounding of 53-plus, last count, in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

To the editor: My hometown of Allagash, Maine, just took a serious beating in an article written by Colin Woodard for the Portland Press Herald, May 8, 2016, titled “North Woods Lawless.”  Now that the Internet and Facebook give a newspaper story a longer shelf life than the myth of the Twinkie, I feel compelled to respond.

To the editor: Let’s face it, some of us in Fort Kent just aren’t “morning folk” and no amount of coffee or scrambled eggs seemed to change the coterie of business people attending UMFK’s Business Breakfast June 1st.

To the editor: There has been a lot of talk around Frenchville about private roads lately. This is due to the fact that certain individuals have been calling for the dirt portion of Pelletier Ave. to be excluded from the Comprehensive Road Reconstruction Plan adopted at the March 22nd Town Meeting in order to repair Church, Starbarn and Pelletier avenues.

To the editor:

I find the recently "contributed" article "Study finds that more than half of Maine's poor do not work" interesting to say the least.

To the editor:

Last week Robert Beaulieu of Mapleton wrote in (the St. John Valley Times) concerned about undue regulatory burdens and training requirements for fiddlehead pickers, possibly contributing to over harvesting. As one of the people involved in providing the trainings, I wanted to write in and clarify the purpose and the content of those sessions.
