  • Letter: Falmouth library doesn't need more shelf space

    I have listened to both sides of this story, read the consultant’s report and have come to the conclusion that the need for additional space (and hence moving the library to Lunt School) is based on outdated formulas that merely calculate storage of book volumes based on population. ...

  • Letter: Maine should warn cell phone users

    My husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 34. Two weeks ago we testified at our state capital to get warning labels on cell phones in Maine. I have researched this for a little over a year now and I am disgusted with what has been hidden from the public. It is a shame the Energy, ...

  • Letter: Falmouth teacher urges vote wisely

    In classrooms at the elementary level every day we encourage our children to be caring citizens that work on problems in cooperative ways as they are learning and working. We encourage them to treat each other respectfully even when they are angry or feel they have been wronged. We discourage unn...

  • Letter: East End developer deserves scrutiny

    The India Street Neighborhood Association has very good reason to be skeptical of any pledge by Village at Oceangate principal Demetri Dansco. He claims his company has heard the concerns of the neighbors and is "100 percent determined to make a positive impact on the neighborhood by doing a bett...

  • Letter: Falmouth Question 1 costs aren't realistic

    If you want a Falmouth Community Center immediately then vote no on Question 1. Matter of fact, if the question was only about the Community Center, we wouldn’t need a referendum. The town has allocated $900,000 to bring the building up to code. We could start programs there immediately.

  • Letter: Approve the Falmouth school budget

    I have been an educator for 15 years, teaching software developers how to build Web applications, teaching aspiring pilots how to fly airplanes, and teaching Fortune 100 companies how to transform their business processes. Whether learning happens in a school or a corporation, high-quality educa...

  • Letter: Pryzant's pledge to Falmouth voters

    I am running for the Falmouth School Board and would appreciate your support. I have three children who have gone through the Falmouth school system. One has graduated and two currently are attending Falmouth High School. Over a 10-year period, I volunteered in the elementary and m...

  • Letter: No free ride in Falmouth

    Please vote no on Question 1 relating to the Falmouth library move to the Plummer/Motz-Lunt site, which includes other costly items to Falmouth residents. If anyone truly believes this is a freebie ("tax neutral") then I have a bridge I'd like to sell them. Our real estate taxes are alre...

  • Letter: Andrews for Falmouth School Board

    I am very happy to give my support to Jan Andrews for Falmouth School Board. My interactions with Jan over the last few years have shown her to be a very level-headed, thoughtful person, willing to consider viewpoints other than her own. And I have no doubt she will bring those traits to the Fal...

  • Letter: Yes on 1 in Falmouth

    For two years I was a member of the Falmouth Community Facilities Planning Committee whose recommendations to the town were the seed of the upcoming Question 1 referendum. I left that process with admiration for town staff, my fellow committee members and for the town itself. The process was so r...
