  • Letter: Open Highland Lake to all Maine taxpayers

    As I understand it, Highland Lake in Falmouth has been stocked routinely for decades even though access has been restricted. Second, the taxpayers of Maine own the land where the boat launch is located; it’s the one with large boulders that block the way to the waters edge. Third, at taxpay...

  • Forecaster Forum: Brunswick School Dept. fails to plan, plans for bailout

    The Brunswick School Department is in full five-alarm posture over the budget for the coming school year. A full three months before town budget hearings begin, they’re knocking on doors, sending out emails, scheduling public meetings, and otherwise doing everything they can to convi... 9

  • The View From Away: This limited-edition, one-of-a-kind beer is for you, Maine

    One of the many reasons I love Maine is it hasn’t been completely taken over by the mass culture/franchise system. Los Angeles has some good qualities, but the constant barrage of slick consumerism wears you down. Sure, there are still successful unique small businesses, but you hav...
