  • Letter: Keep Cumberland residential areas residential

    Last year, when Randy Copp was removing the forest of trees from his 47-acre lot of land, he told his neighbors he was doing this to build his home, have pastures for animals and a nice view. He told us that he had bought seed that he was going to lay down for grass. Little did we know that his...

  • Letter: Defeat the South Portland school budget

    The South Portland School Board reported in January that over the past three years the school over-budgeted expenditures and that the school surplus (excess of revenue over expenses) increased by over $3.4 million, as compared to the budgets that forecast a $2.8 million decrease, so they were off...

  • Letter: Dill mirrors District 7 values

    Rep. Cynthia Dill has my enthusiastic support in her bid to become the District 7 state senator in the special election on May 10. And I'm not alone in that support. Dill has received the endorsement of the Maine League of Conservation Voters because of her record protecting the environmen...

  • Letter: South Portland baseball fields not a dog park

    Some local dog walkers have been using South Portland National Little League fields as a substitute for their own backyards. It is not OK and not within your rights as a taxpayer to run your dogs on the fields, which are clearly marked with signs that say “No Dogs.” SPNLL leases the...

  • Letter: Brunswick should put pressure on teachers

    If the Brunswick School Board had any fear of retribution for caving in to the teachers' union yet again, last week’s budget meeting should have allayed all their anxiety. After being confronted with the facts that the union has been extracting yearly increases in salary and benefits witho...

  • Letter: Falmouth library isn't just a 'warehouse'

    I have been personally involved in the investigations regarding expanding the space of the Falmouth Memorial Library since 2006. Throughout this process I have considered how the future of our library will be affected by e-books. I’ve read articles and blogs predicting a wide range of pos...

  • Letter: Falmouth will benefit from Question 1

    I am impressed and grateful that the Falmouth Town Council was able to develop a plan to keep the Lunt/Plummer site in civic use without raising our taxes. As a result, I am voting yes on Question 1. What really appeals to me about this plan is that the town cannot increase property ta...
