  • Abby's Road: My hope for happiness

    She ran with a soft smile on her face, her footfalls quiet, her toes pointed. Every third step, she leaped off the ground, raising her hands above her head and extending her fingers with a dancer’s grace. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, her cadence seemed to be putting her i...

  • The Universal Notebook: The fine-art confidence game

    A Portland art gallery has the local art scene buzzing over the propriety of charging artists to exhibit their work. That battle was fought and largely won by the Union of Maine Visual Artists back in the 1980s, when artist-activist Carlo Pittore led the charge against museums and gallerie...

  • Letter: Question 1 an opportunity for Falmouth

    The Plumber-Motz/Lunt campus referendum that will be on the Falmouth ballot on June 14 is the result of almost two years of work and includes many changes from its initial vision.

  • Letter: Move is right decision for Falmouth library

    I believe that moving the Falmouth Memorial Library from its current location up the road to the Lunt School makes a great deal of sense. The town has seen many changes and many new people have moved here. The current location does not have sufficient room for the children, computers, meeting spa...

  • Letter: Doyle for Falmouth School Board

    I am a retired teacher after 37 years in the classroom. I graduated from Falmouth and my three children, all honor students, went through Falmouth schools.

    I would like to thank Scarborough Town Councilors Judith Roy, Michael Wood, Karen D'Andrea and Carol Rancourt for voting to ban smoking on Scarborough beaches. Also, a big thank you to Healthy Maine Partnerships, members of the Environmental Club of Scarborough, parents, children, physicians, and...

  • Letter: Brunswick school budget absurdity

    Your reportage on the Brunswick school budget offers a classic case study in what military and intelligence agencies call “psy-ops,” shorthand for psychological operations. Public wringing of hands, gnashing of teeth, and parading dear children and “please tax me more&rdq...
