  • Letter: Former Falmouth library president: No on Question 1

    My wife and I moved to Falmouth a little over 45 years ago. We feel moving the library from its present location would be a mistake and a waste of money because the 1995 expansion was planned with future on-site expansion in mind. How do I know? I served two terms on the Board of Trustees,...

  • Letter: No on Falmouth Question 1

    There’s been a lot of discussion about the future of the Falmouth Memorial Library. Everyone is trying to predict the future in the digital age. For me, the referendum gets clearer by looking at the past. I was on the library’s capital campaign committee in 1993. We were charge...

  • Letter: Pryzant for Falmouth School Board

    I'm writing to encourage Falmouth voters to elect Eydie Pryzant to our School Board. I say "our" board, because it's thanks largely to Eydie's leadership, hard work and staying power that the Falmouth School Department remains an independent district. When school consolidation became law, ...

  • Letter: For Pierce, Orestis and Question 1 in Falmouth

    We have lived in Falmouth for 30 years, and the town has grown and changed significantly. However there have been core values which have remained consent: budgets are carefully constructed and are conservative, resulting in low tax rates; schools are excellent; community and our small-town life a...

  • Letter: Former Falmouth councilors back Pierce

    As former Falmouth town councilors, we are writing to endorse Teresa Pierce for re-election to the Falmouth Town Council. Over her last three years of service on the council, Teresa has been engaged, informed, attentive, respectful and balanced in her approach to competing interests. She has bro...

  • Letter: Kittredge for Yarmouth Town Council

    I would like to encourage other Yarmouth residents to join me on Election Day in casting a vote for Andrew Kittredge for Town Council. I have known Andy for close to 25 years and he is one of the most honest, hard working, and down-to-earth people that I have ever met. He is always there to lend ...

  • Letter: SAD 51 board urges support for budget

    The citizens of SAD 51 have some important work to complete before we can head to the beach. On June 9 we gather at Greely High School to review the budget proposed by the School Board. The theme of this budget is continuous progress toward greater student achievement despite the economic...

  • Letter: Tucker for Falmouth School Board

    Lucy Tucker is the kind of leader Falmouth needs on the School Board. Raised by parents who believed the best gift you can give your children is a great education, she moved to Falmouth because of the great schools.  Lucy has been an active volunteer for 10 years and is looking to provide su...

  • Letter: Safe Chemicals Act deserves support

    As a pediatrician and father of a 4-year-old daughter, the health and well-being of children is forefront in my mind. It’s crucial to have common sense, science-based policies to protect children’s health. Maine’s Kid Safe Products Act and the phase-out of toxic BPA from childre...

  • Letter: Eliminate industrial operations in residential Cumberland

    The beep-beep-beeping of construction vehicles, the noise from the equipment being used and from dumping of material is loud and unhealthy. The activity of removing or processing gravel materials is a dusty industrial operation, not one conducive to a residential neighborhood. The heavy dump-truc...
