    I watch in disbelief when Falmouth Councilor Bonny Rodden and her committees, Community Development and Long Fange Planning, work on Route 1. This has been going on since 2005 with Bonny and since 1995 with former Councilor George Thebarge. It’s about time the council closed down both commi...

    The Maine Clammers Association would like to thank people for all the generous and thoughtful contributions that have made this year's Santa Fund a huge success. It's never too late to contribute to the Santa Fund. In fact, the fund is operating slightly in the red. Recently we learned o...

  • Letter: Freeport reserves funds need attention

    I recently took the time to review Freeport’s financial statements and reserve account information. Based on the information provided, I believe that some of Freeport’s reserve accounts are not being managed in accordance with town policy and, perhaps, state law. The documents clear...
