  • 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: Hemphill highly qualified for Falmouth council

  • Letter: Not a fan of Orestis' record in Falmouth

    Incumbent Town Councilor Chris Orestis has overseen an increase in Falmouth property taxes of 9.3 percent in the last two years: government greed and a hardship on many in these tough economic times, especially the elderly, who happen to be his company's target market.
