  • 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: Jones for Yarmouth School Committee

    Philip Jones is an excellent candidate for Yarmouth School Committee and deserves voters’ support this June. I have worked for the past several years on the Merrill Memorial Library Capital Campaign with Philip and have found him to be bright, a good listener, and a hard worker. He understa...

  • Letter: Senate District 25 Dems should back Woods

    We are thankful and humbled with what our community provides. Despite its bounties, there is disparity: poverty, education, drugs, lack of employment and/or the lack of ingenuity to explore opportunity and protect our natural resources in our state. Maine is a complex state, with a complex demogr...

  • Letter: Falmouth should elect McBrady to council

    We are writing in support of Charlie McBrady for Falmouth Town Council in the June election. We have known Charlie for many years. He is bright, thoughtful and fair minded. He is also a life-long resident of Falmouth who would bring a unique historical perspective to the leadership of our town. W...

  • Letter: Former Falmouth councilors back Hemphill

    Caleb Hemphill has the qualities we think are important for a town councilor: the ability to analyze information carefully, a good understanding of how town government works, from budgets to building permits, and the courage and integrity to stand up for what he believes. As an architectur...

  • Letter: Mancini will be good for Falmouth business

    As a business owner that has created thousands of jobs in this state and as a Falmouth resident, I have been very disappointed in Councilor Chris Orestis over the last couple years. Our town should welcome businesses, not punish them over tiny regulations – literally one-inch violation...

  • Letter: Bell for SAD 51 School Board

    Annual school board elections are around the corner. In Cumberland, we are fortunate to have Vickie Bell, an outstanding candidate seeking election to the School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to vote for Vickie on June 10. Vickie is ...

  • Letter: Woods deserves Dems' support in primary

    Steve Woods talks the talk and walks the walk. I met him 13 years ago when he moved into my neighborhood. As neighbors, we see each other and chat. We touch on subjects like town politics. Steve never sat on the sidelines, but rolled up his sleeves and served on Planning Board and now Town Counci...

  • Letter: Tucker has qualities to represent Brunswick

    I enthusiastically support Ralph Tucker in the Democratic primary for Brunswick's state representative from House District 50. Ralph's qualifications are obvious. Service on Brunswick's School Board and Town Council, chairman of the state's Workers Compensation Commission, and service as a...
