  • Letter: Library is a valuable Falmouth resource

    I am writing in support of the Falmouth Memorial Library expansion project. Falmouth has among the best schools in the state, wonderful athletic fields, modern hockey rinks, parks and open space. But while these facilities are used by specific pockets of our population, our library appeals to and...

  • Letter: Don't take pot vote lightly in South Portland

    A long-term medical study by the New Zealand and Australian governments concluded that 70 percent of teenagers who used marijuana never graduated from high school. Further, the Association for Addiction Professionals does not support any ballot initiative that supports the legalization of marijua...

  • Letter: Vote yes in Falmouth for library expansion

    As a 13-year resident of Falmouth and as a former trustee of Falmouth Memorial Library, I am in favor of the library expansion. The library is open for use by all people, young and old, and the expansion of the library's space will meet growing needs for all patrons. The Town Council has h...

  • Letter: Support for Stromgren in Topsham House race

    Green Independent candidate Daniel Stromgren is a strong advocate for those whose voice is not always heard. He is knowledgeable and informed about the most pressing issues. I had the pleasure of working at the same mental health agency as Daniel. His belief in working with everyone to find resol...

  • Letter: Re-elect Graham in House District 46

    Of great importance to me is the spirit of cooperation between people of all political stripes as we work together to make our town a great place to live. Democratic state Rep. Anne Graham, running for re-election in North Yarmouth's House District 46, has been part of that community spiri...

  • Letter: Pierce for Falmouth state rep in District 44

    I am writing to express my support for Democrat Teresa Pierce in Maine House District 44. Teresa demonstrated a practical, collaborative, empathic approach to key problems on the Falmouth Town Council. She understands that our budgets must be realistic while infrastructure is maintained an...

  • Letter: Yes on Question 1 to end bear baiting

    I’ve never seen myself as a political person. When I heard that our state is the very last one to still allow bear trapping, hounding, and baiting, I felt a lot of embarrassment. This is not “the way life should be.” These practices are truly unnecessary and cruel. I&rsqu...

  • Letter: Pierce is 'not a single-issue' candidate

    Democrat Teresa Pierce has my vote to represent Falmouth House District 44 in Augusta. Her commitment to Falmouth and Maine is clear. Her tenure on the Falmouth Town Council was marked by fiscal responsibility, infrastructure improvements, strong support of public education, preservation of open ...

  • Letter: Talbot for state rep in House District 54

    On Election Day, I'll be supporting Republican Kim Talbot for state representative in House District 54. Kim is energetic and ready to make a difference in Augusta. We need a representative for Topsham with new ideas and who has a willingness to listen to all sides. That person is Kim Talbot....
