How to save a park

An inside look at how Portland citizens rallied to preserve Congress Square
Under the new ordinance, now any proposal to sell any of the listed 35 parks, including Congress Square Park, requires a supermajority—eight out of nine city councilors—to support the sale, or, if six or seven councilors support it, then it would also have to pass a special, city-wide referendum. But the partners at Rockbridge Capital—the Ohio-based investment firm that owns the neighboring Westin Portland Harborview Hotel—still want their event center, as do the mayor and a number of Portland’s city councilors.

Behind the partisan veil

Tough talk
The way these debates are panning out, and the absurdly tight-knit poll numbers between Michaud and LePage, suggest that voters may be just as polarized as the candidates—despite the Democratic candidate’s pledge to bring liberals and conservatives together to fix Maine’s most pressing problems.

Rock saves
After half-a-dozen aborted attempts at finding a new home, Grime Studios owner Justin Curtsinger says things look good for a new, much larger space on Presumpscot Street, but it all hinges on a rapidly approaching fundraising deadline.

Cutting higher education

How corporatization is transforming the University of Southern Maine
The USM administration swears up and down that they’re in crisis, that they’re facing a $16 million deficit in Portland and an even greater deficit systemwide. Yet many within their ranks—many of them economists, public policy researchers, and sociology professors—are challenging the numbers, insisting they don’t add up. So we, the public, have to choose which side to believe.

Under the weather

The needs of LGBTQ individuals differ greatly. Here's a temperature check of healthcare as experienced by local queers to explore standards of LGBTQ competency, specifically in heterosexual providers. The criteria at the root of each story make a basic rubric for respect.

The way stagnation should be

Diverse City
The assertion by Governor Paul LePage that Maine is “Open for business” and our long-held motto “The way life should be” are completely and hopelessly incompatible.

What's the plan?

Is Portland’s development push a good thing for its citizens?
Dating back to its founding, Portland’s economic model was one that relied on finding ways to extract value from perishable resources—trees; the ocean; and later, manufacturing—and direct that value elsewhere. Today, Portland’s prized asset is lifestyle and real estate.

Keeping the costs of college in check

One Cent's Worth
