Opinion

  • Letter: Rowe for governor

    As an observer of recent debates and advertising supporting gubernatorial candidates, I can’t help but be impressed with their willingness to commit time and energy to public service. It says a lot for Maine that we can field such a strong set of candidates. I have also found it more...

  • Letter: Re-elect Rodden in Falmouth

    We are writing in strong support of Bonny Rodden for re-election to the Falmouth Town Council. Our support is based on her intelligent, careful and pragmatic work on the council over the past three years. We value the balance Bonny has brought to issues of taxes and economic development; s...

  • Letter: Support the SAD 51 budget

    Voters in School Administrative District 51 would do well next month to resist being swept up in the current anti-tax sentiment, especially for their own public school district. Our schools are a valuable resource for Cumberland and North Yarmouth. Greely High School was one of four schools in ...

  • Letter: No justification for Falmouth facilities proposal

    Falmouth's Facilities Planning Committee recommends spending more than $9 million to move Town Hall and the library and open a new recreation center. But the cost of renovation is far higher than new construction and the site is a non-conforming use. It would be more fiscally responsible to retu...

  • Letter: Rodden, DiBiase for Falmouth council

    I am writing to encourage Falmouth voters to support Bonny Rodden and Barbara DiBiase in the June 8 Town Council election. It’s been an enormous privilege to serve with fellow Councilor Bonny Rodden over the past three years. She has consistently shown amazing energy, thoughtfulness and p...

  • Letter: Falmouth should elect DiBiase

    As a Falmouth resident, teacher and parent concerned about a healthy and sustainable future for our town, I'm glad to be able to recommend Barbara DiBiase, a wonderful new candidate for Town Council. Barb DiBiase has experience working for the town as energy and sustainability coordinator, and s...

  • Letter: Payne, Varney, Murray for Falmouth

    I enthusiastically support Tony Payne, Faith Varney and Dave Murray for Falmouth Town Council. As you know, Tony is seeking re-election for a second-three year term. I have worked with Tony for all of his first term. Tony has demonstrated to me that he is fiscally conservative and able to ...

  • Letter: Varney for Falmouth council

    I have had the opportunity to review the priorities and issues that Faith Varney will pursue as a member of the Falmouth Town Council. I believe that they make it clear that she will be a reasoned, responsive, responsible and restrained member of that body. I hope that you will join me in elect...

  • Letter: Private sector fails to do its part

    Concerning some comments about Edgar Allen Beem's "Moral universe is no place for Tea Partiers" that seem to feel or ask, since when did the Federal Government have the right to do this and that, I'll counter with: when the private sector failed miserably to be good, decent responsible community...
