  • Letter: Wind series unfair to task force

    I write to express my disappointment regarding a series of articles authored by Naomi Schalit of the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting that did not accurately represent the efforts of the Governor’s Wind Power Task Force. Gov. Baldacci established the task force with very ge... 1

  • The Universal Notebook: Wrestling with religious tolerance

    Polite people don’t talk publicly about sex, money or religion. That’s what I was brought up to believe, so I guess I’m not a very polite person. I was also brought up to be tolerant of different religious beliefs. I do my best, but I’m not perfect. And I don’... 21

  • Reporter's Notebook: Growing comfortable in a thick skin

    Of all the things I collected at The Forecaster, my favorite is a letter in which attorney F. Lee Bailey essentially calls me a liar. Bailey, of course, is a pretty big deal. For a time, one local newspaper had taken to writing “internationally famous” before his name, as if ce... 1

  • Letter: Brunswick councilor speaks her conscience

    I would like to respond to a recent letter from Jeffrey Alan Morse about his concern with Brunswick Town Council Vice Chairwoman Deborah Atwood's stance on a company that has been involved with military drone development and currently seeks to set up shop at Brunswick Naval Air Station. One has t...

  • Letter: Re-elect Davis to state Senate

    We live in troubled times, we need a man of the caliber of Jerry Davis to represent the people of District 11 in the Maine Senate. Please re-elect Jerry in the upcoming election. Marie C. Brown

  • Letter: What is Falmouth hiding?

    The reason I have used the Freedom of Access Act to gather facts is because of tips I received from Falmouth citizens about continuous waste of tax dollars. Can anyone reading this think of any institution that writes two checks totaling nearly $38,000 without anything in the file folder except a...

  • Letter: Support the Falmouth Flyer

    For the past four years I have been taking the Flyer bus to Portland and back at least once a week. Riding the bus saves me the hassle of finding a place to park, and dealing with traffic, pedestrians, etc. The Portland Public Library, Monument Square, the Maine Historical Society and many othe...

  • Letter: Say 'no' to Falmouth facilities plan

    We have lived in Falmouth since 1965 and have managed just fine without a community center. With the economy the way it is, I don't feel that the average Falmouth resident can keep taking on more and more just because a certain few feel this is the way we should go. We try to teach our children t...

  • Letter: Portland isn't the place for JFK carrier

    Regarding your recent article "Group eyes Ocean Gateway for carrier," I was taken aback by the comments made by the group's spokesman. Richard Fitzgerald seems to presume that there is absolutely no opposition to the idea of putting the JFK carrier in Portland Harbor. He appears deaf to concerns ...

  • Letter: More about Parkside in Portland

    After reading the recent article by Randy Billings in The Forecaster, I hope to provide some additional information about the Parkside Neighborhood Center. People's Regional Opportunity Program manages several programs at the Parkside Neighborhood Center, at 85 Grant St. in Portland. Prog...
