  • Letter: Running for Falmouth School Board

    I’m a candidate for Falmouth School Board. My family moved to Falmouth from Maryland six years ago. I have three children: One son is a 2013 Falmouth High School graduate, another is an FHS sophomore, and my daughter is in eighth grade. I currently work as an editor and writer for a food ma...

  • Letter: Beem is right: we're suckers

    Regarding Edgar Allen Beem's piece "Welcome to the United Suckers of America," some people may be offended, but I thought ...

  • Letter: Brunswick Explorer offers vital service

    My children don't have driver licenses for personal reasons and the Brunswick Explorer has been a godsend. It allows them the ability to get to appointments, shopping, jobs, even meet friends for lunch or dinner, all without having to ask for a ride or take a very expensive cab ride, which used ...

  • Letter: Reader appreciates Guerin's work

    Just a short note to say that Emily Guerin, the productive reporter for the Mid-Coast Forecaster, is a fine journalist. Her stories are well organized, lively and unbiased. Anecdotes she includes make for fun reading, as in, "Just after 3 p.m. Friday, Casey Brey's feet floated 6 feet off the gro...

The cashier's line was short, but taking a long time, prompting us to pay attention to what was holding it up. An elderly customer was confused and upset because her credit card was ...

  • Short Relief: Freedom rings, a decade after 9/11

    Sept. 11, 2001, arrived after a series of eerily beautiful, late-summer days filled with bright, clear, cloudless sunshine. For weeks, the only news had been of shark attacks and the disappearance of a congressional intern. There was a sense that we were at the end of history: that the gr... 1

  • Letter: Same-day voter registration works

    Despite conservatives' claims to the contrary (after so many years), same-day voter registration has worked pretty well. It seems these extremists are devoting an extraordinary amount of time, effort, and money to kill this right and our democracy. David Str...

  • Letter: Brunswick Explorer had successful year

    Some of Fred Blanchard's information about the Brunswick Explorer bus service is incorrect and I have to disagree with his conclusions. The Brunswick Explorer does have three buses, one of which functions as a spare. Coastal Trans, which operates the service, employs at least three full-ti...

  • Letter: Protect same-day voter registration

    I am writing in support of the peoples veto which will protect the voting rights for the people of Maine. We need to remember Election Day registration has worked in Maine for more than 40 years. There's absolutely no reason to eliminate it. We need to pay attention when Maine's tow...
