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

    Dinesh D'Souza's "America" was not what I was expecting. In the promotions for the documentary, D’Souza states, “America. Imagine what the world would be like without her.” It was a fascinating concept to me, to see one person’s interpretation of what the world woul...

  • The Universal Notebook: Confessions of a (recovering) soccer dad

    Our daughter Tess played soccer from the time she was a little girl until she got to college. Prior to her taking up the sport, I had little or no interest in the game. Then we lived the devoted lives of soccer moms and dads through travel team to premier and high school varsity soccer. It...

  • Letter: Re-elect Davis to state Senate

    We live in troubled times, we need a man of the caliber of Jerry Davis to represent the people of District 11 in the Maine Senate. Please re-elect Jerry in the upcoming election. Marie C. Brown

  • Letter: What is Falmouth hiding?

    The reason I have used the Freedom of Access Act to gather facts is because of tips I received from Falmouth citizens about continuous waste of tax dollars. Can anyone reading this think of any institution that writes two checks totaling nearly $38,000 without anything in the file folder except a...

  • Letter: Support the Falmouth Flyer

    For the past four years I have been taking the Flyer bus to Portland and back at least once a week. Riding the bus saves me the hassle of finding a place to park, and dealing with traffic, pedestrians, etc. The Portland Public Library, Monument Square, the Maine Historical Society and many othe...

  • Letter: Say 'no' to Falmouth facilities plan

    We have lived in Falmouth since 1965 and have managed just fine without a community center. With the economy the way it is, I don't feel that the average Falmouth resident can keep taking on more and more just because a certain few feel this is the way we should go. We try to teach our children t...

  • Letter: Portland isn't the place for JFK carrier

    Regarding your recent article "Group eyes Ocean Gateway for carrier," I was taken aback by the comments made by the group's spokesman. Richard Fitzgerald seems to presume that there is absolutely no opposition to the idea of putting the JFK carrier in Portland Harbor. He appears deaf to concerns ...

  • Letter: More about Parkside in Portland

    After reading the recent article by Randy Billings in The Forecaster, I hope to provide some additional information about the Parkside Neighborhood Center. People's Regional Opportunity Program manages several programs at the Parkside Neighborhood Center, at 85 Grant St. in Portland. Prog...

  • The Universal Notebook: Paying attention

    Yesterday morning, when I sat down at the computer, I looked out the window and saw a nuthatch asleep on the bird feeder, its beak resting on the plastic cylinder of black oil sunflower seeds, eyes wide open, motionless as chickadees came and went. I watched it for a while before going out...

  • Global Matters: Nazareth today

    Most of us think of Nazareth, the boyhood home of Jesus, as a quaint little village in an idealized diorama of the Holy Land. Nowadays, however, it’s a bustling, hot and dusty city in which a cacophony of car horns, buses and construction equipment assaults the ears while shopping ma...
