    As a resident of Bouchard Drive in Brunswick, I wish to express strongly my opinion against the proposed Amtrak layover and maintenance facility at the vicinity of 2 Turner St. Several points must be made clear.

  • Letter: Falmouth candidate responds to critic

    In response to Pam Fenrich's incorrect description of my goals as a member of the School Board: 1 — I will slash out-of-control overpaying of vendors. 2 — I will not “eliminate whole programs.” 3 — My son, soon to be senior at Bryant University, ... 12

  • Letter: Does Beem use paper products?

    Edgar Allen Beem exposed his liberal snobbery in his recent “Lurching toward LURC reform” commentary. In discussing easing regulations for land use in northern Maine, he states, “Some folks seem to think turning the North Maine Woods into toilet paper is its highest and best use... 2
