  • The Right View: Film raises the question of a world without 'America'

    Dinesh D'Souza's "America" was not what I was expecting. In the promotions for the documentary, D’Souza states, “America. Imagine what the world would be like without her.” It was a fascinating concept to me, to see one person’s interpretation of what the world woul...

  • The Universal Notebook: Confessions of a (recovering) soccer dad

    Our daughter Tess played soccer from the time she was a little girl until she got to college. Prior to her taking up the sport, I had little or no interest in the game. Then we lived the devoted lives of soccer moms and dads through travel team to premier and high school varsity soccer. It...

  • Letter: Breen 'an excellent candidate' for state Senate

    I am recommending Cathy Breen as the Democratic candidate for the Maine state Senate in District 25. I have known Cathy for several years.

  • Letter: Elect McBrady to Falmouth Town Council

    I've had the pleasure of knowing Charlie McBrady as a friend and neighbor for over 15 years. I have also worked with him on a number of professional projects.

  • Letter: Group hopes to correct Scarborough tax policy

    Like many of our fellow Scarborough residents, we have been astounded, shocked and, at times, mystified by the current town budget process. We have been dismayed by a five-year history of out-sized real estate tax increases. Our taxes have increased 25 percent during a period when inflation has i...

  • Letter: Hemphill will make difference in Falmouth

    As a retired, life-long resident of Falmouth, I am excited that Caleb Hemphill is running for Town Council. Caleb is truly aware that rising costs may drive many of us out of the town that we helped grow. As a small business owner, he is aware of the vitality that business brings to our co...

  • Letter: Woods cares about jobs, quality of life

    I am writing in support of Steve Woods for state Senate in the District 25 Democratic primary. In his role as chairman of the Yarmouth Town Council, he has been very supportive of Yarmouth’s cultural environment. He supported and worked for the Merrill Library bond issue. He also helped the...

  • Letter: Cape Elizabeth councilor counters former colleague

    I have served on the Cape Elizabeth Town Council since 2008. In a recent edition of The Forecaster, former Councilor Sara Lennon was quoted as saying “people in Cape don't want development; that's why we moved here.” I don’t believe the issue is as black and white as Ms. Lennon ...

  • Letter: Woods 'most qualified' in Democratic primary

    I’ve known Steve Woods for many years and I want to share something with the other towns in Senate District 25 that we in Yarmouth have come to learn and trust. While many folks talk about things, debate things, discuss things to death, or endlessly procrastinate, Steve simply “gets t...

  • Letter: McBrady, Hemphill for Falmouth Town Council

    I would like to strongly endorse Charlie McBrady and Caleb Hemphill for election to the Falmouth Town Council. Every town needs a connection with its history, and a person who knows its people, its streets, where it came from, and where it can go to. Charlie McBrady grew up in Falmouth and has ra...
