    The annual Pride Portland parade, this year themed “Love is Love,” was a contrast to the parades and public gatherings along Congress Street since the presidential inauguration. As if by unspoken agreement, there were almost no overtly political signs for or against President Trump in sight.

    PEAKS ISLAND — Tales of drunken wedding guests careening down narrow roads and parents letting 5-year-olds take the wheel have prompted a move to crack down on golf cart use on Portland’s Casco Bay islands. The seasonal problem has grown acute in recent years on Peaks Island, where two companies now lease golf carts for hourly or long-term rentals.
