  • Letter: Shedding light in South Portland

    Recently the South Portland City Council asked staff to look at reducing street lights (2,011) for two reasons: cost ($26,033 Central Maine Power rental fee per month) and reduction of light pollution. Code Enforcement began the process of choosing the lights to turn off. No lights in or near i...

  • Letter: Brunswick's conflict

    The May 8 Forecaster printed two columns with relevance to each other: Jonathan Crimmins criticizing Councilor Karen Klatt for trying to resolve conflict of interest in Brunswick, and Steve Mistler after attending a reporting conference in Boston.

  • Letter: People matter, not programs

    I have been quiet about the School Administrative District 51 budget, expressing my concerns directly to the Board of Directors. However, if the fiscal 2010 budget passes, and I say nothing, I will feel like I should have spoken up. I am very concerned about the property taxes in our community...

  • Letter: The Falmouth bubble

    I'm so delighted that I live in a Falmouth insulated bubble. So, $2.8 million for another indoor ice rink? While you're at it, why don't we close Route 1 from Depot Road to Bucknam Road and build an indoor covered swimming pool to attract winter tourists. Obviously no one in Falmou...

  • Letter: Vote for Joe

    In his three years on the Town Council Joe Wrobleski has been a leader in the effort to achieve a workable balance between promoting economic growth and preserving the quality of life that defines Falmouth. Joe is now running for re-election and I urge you to support him. Joe has s...

  • Letter: Wrobleski, a leader

    Want a Town Councilor who diligently researches issues? Want a Town Councilor who asks well-thought-out questions? Want a Town Councilor who listens to all sides of an issue before voting? You already have one: Joe Wrobleski. Joe has been an outstanding councilor for thr...
