  • The Right View: Film raises the question of a world without 'America'

  • Letter: Falmouth should reuse old schools

    I am writing to express my support for the proposal to convert the Lunt and Plummer-Motz campus into a community space, with a possibility for the Falmouth library to expand to the site as well.

  • The Universal Notebook: Langlais in limbo

    As the Portland Public Art Committee ponders whether to dismantle and store “Tracing the Fore,” the stillborn sculptural installation in Boothby Square, its members might do well to consider the fate of another dismantled work of art that has been languishing in limbo for the past 30 ...

  • Letter: Woodbury for state Senate

    A vote for Dick Woodbury, who is running as an independent for state Senate, is a vote for an opportunity for Maine to fiscally right itself. He has a well-grounded vision for Maine in terms of its financial policy, education priorities and quality of life issues. His legislative experienc...

  • Letter: Nelson deserves Falmouth's support

    State Rep. Mary Nelson has served Falmouth very well and deserves our support on Election Day. Nelson has been a strong leader in three of the most important issues facing Maine: creating good jobs, investing in sustainable energy and ensuring that our education system from kindergarten th...
