  • Letter: Hoffer is the source for high school sports

    As the parent of a high school athlete, I always look forward to Michael Hoffer's wonderful coverage of games. His detailed observation of the contest is always put into the context of the teams' histories and futures. His enthusiasm for high school sports infuses everything he writes, and he alw...

  • Intentionally Unreasonable: It's Stevoe versus the status quo

    Let me begin this new column with a proper introduction; my name is Stevoe and I’m an unreasonable man through and through. This self-designation is borrowed from George Bernard Shaw and his maxim, “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists i...

  • Letter: SAD 51 budget deserves support

    Consistent with SAD 51’s goal of continuously improving its excellent teaching and learning environment, Cumberland and North Yarmouth voted overwhelmingly in 2006 to authorize the renovation and expansion of Greely High School. This project has already provided a substantial return on inve...

  • Letter: Falmouth library has outgrown its home

    I lived in Falmouth for 25 years, and my long relationship with Falmouth Memorial Library began when my family first visited the library in 1981. I was honored to be appointed a library trustee in 1993. The library board soon realized that the building we all loved no longer served our needs. B...

  • Letter: Falmouth library doesn't need more shelf space

    I have listened to both sides of this story, read the consultant’s report and have come to the conclusion that the need for additional space (and hence moving the library to Lunt School) is based on outdated formulas that merely calculate storage of book volumes based on population. ...

I have researched this for a little over a year now and I am disgusted with what has been hidden from the public. It is a shame the Energy, ...

  • Letter: Falmouth teacher urges vote wisely

    In classrooms at the elementary level every day we encourage our children to be caring citizens that work on problems in cooperative ways as they are learning and working. We encourage them to treat each other respectfully even when they are angry or feel they have been wronged. We discourage unn...

  • Letter: East End developer deserves scrutiny

    The India Street Neighborhood Association has very good reason to be skeptical of any pledge by Village at Oceangate principal Demetri Dansco. He claims his company has heard the concerns of the neighbors and is "100 percent determined to make a positive impact on the neighborhood by doing a bett...

  • Letter: Falmouth Question 1 costs aren't realistic

    If you want a Falmouth Community Center immediately then vote no on Question 1. Matter of fact, if the question was only about the Community Center, we wouldn’t need a referendum. The town has allocated $900,000 to bring the building up to code. We could start programs there immediately.

  • Letter: Approve the Falmouth school budget

    I have been an educator for 15 years, teaching software developers how to build Web applications, teaching aspiring pilots how to fly airplanes, and teaching Fortune 100 companies how to transform their business processes. Whether learning happens in a school or a corporation, high-quality educa...
