    Falmouth is fortunate to have two highly qualified individuals running for Town Council. Karen Farber is running for re-election. As chairwoman of the council this past year, she has brought a balanced approach to issues facing our community, advocating to broaden our business districts, p...

    I am writing in support of Cindy Han’s candidacy for Falmouth School Board. I have known Cindy since she moved to Falmouth several years ago. Cindy and I are both mothers of three children and since all of our kids are the same ages, I have had frequent chances to interact with Cindy...

  • Letter: Arno will bring quality to Freeport council

    Freeport’s election process is supposed to be a non-partisan exercise in selecting the candidate who best represents our own thoughts and ones who will participate in municipal government with clarity, integrity and maturity. Kate Arno, the senior manager/senior policy associate at ...

  • Letter: Freeport candidates must denounce vandalism

    I have been involved in the Freeport political scene since 1960 and have campaigned and been elected to office several times. I am appalled at the sign rage evidenced this year by supporters of some candidates in the Town Council races. The most egregious is the destruction of signs in the Distr...

  • Letter: Vote no on Question 1

    Please vote no on referendum Question 1. This law gives our town and city clerks the necessary time to verify the eligibility of our newly registered voters. We all know that we do not live in a fraud-free society. We also know that identity theft is on the rise. So let’s give our clerks ti...

  • The Universal Notebook: Back to the movies

    Lately, Carolyn and I have taken to going to the movies at the Nickelodeon in Portland on Tuesday nights when admission is only $5. We go with our good friends and fellow empty-nesters Don and Colleen. Even watching the latest hit films, there’s something very old-fashioned about actually g...

  • The View From Away: There's no place like a home next to Tony and Becky

    When we decided to put our house on the market, we thought the hard part would be figuring out what to do next. “It’s a great house at a great price, the market has more or less hit bottom, it shouldn’t take long and then we’ll figure out what we’re going to do.&rdqu... 2
