  • The View From Away: A lawyer, a comic and a comedy writer walk into the past ...

    Rationally, I never had a chance as a stand-up. It’s simple common sense. If you hate being recognized or touched or complimented, and I did, you probably shouldn’t be trying to get famous. Fortunately, I thought my love for the art would trump all that, paving the way for 10...

  • Global Matters: Maine fails the business investment multiple-choice test

    Imagine that you are about to make a major purchase. You’re considering several different brands. Sales teams from the manufacturers have called on you. They’ve left you with literature describing their products and their companies. Each has tried to convince you that investing...

  • Letter: Brunswick opposition delays Downeaster service

    Patrick Rael’s letter attacking the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority, its board of directors and its capable executive director is filled with misinformation. He intimates that only in April did NNEPRA propose a layover facility. Wrong. The layover facility has been ...

  • Letter: Save Falmouth's water views

    Falmouth is an unique place to live since it has both a coastal community and a lakefront community on Highland Lake. Residents and visitors are drawn to these areas because they have something in common: they enjoy the water and their beautiful views. You should take notice because the Falmout...

  • Letter: What's unsaid about OccupyMaine, welfare fraud

    My comment plays to Edgar Allen Beem's recent Universal Notebook commentary of our governor's proposal to drug test welfare recipients. No doubt Gov. LePage received another anonymous letter. (I suppose it sounds better then hearing voices.) But it also feeds into other newspapers' recent arti... 1

  • Forecaster Forum: Metro's Flyer bus is a failure in Falmouth

    Facts are stubborn things and the facts associated with Metro service in Falmouth differ greatly from the feelings proponents have for the bus. Proponents see the Falmouth Flyer as a social service, an environmental contribution and an economic investment in Falmouth’s future. For so... 1

  • Letter: Falmouth bus service matters to UMaine

    The University of Maine Regional Learning Center programs at Tidewater Farm in Falmouth are in full swing. As we reach more individuals, families and businesses from Falmouth and the region, we find that an increasing number are using the Metro bus service, including our employees. When we...

  • Letter: The comfort of Falmouth

    As a recent "immigrant," I am so pleased to be living in Falmouth, a thoughtful community of people with varied ages. In our 70s, we have one car and it is a joy to arrange one's day with a dropping off at the Maine Medical Center Falmouth campus for required blood work, then easily and safely w...

  • Letter: Grateful for the Falmouth Flyer

    I'd like to say how grateful I am for Metro's Falmouth Flyer. As a senior without a car, it affords me independence and freedom of movement. From Hat Trick Drive in Falmouth I have access to the Audubon Society, to doctors' appointments, to the Public Market and Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, an...

  • Letter: NYA Class of '61 gives back

    What does it mean when a high school class reunites after 50 years? Reconnections and recollections of times spent together? In the case of the North Yarmouth Academy Class of 1961 it also means saying thank-you to a town that gave them so many memories. How to give a long-distance hug to the tow...
