    If you're of a certain age, you probably remember the opening narration of the early 1960s sci-fi TV show, "The Outer Limits": "There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will brin...

  • The Universal Notebook: Art in my life

    For the most part, my life in art has remained pretty much out of these columns, except perhaps when I was inveighing against our benighted governor a few years ago for his political attack on the Maine Labor History Mural for being too pro-labor.

  • Letter: Falmouth will benefit from Question 1

    I am impressed and grateful that the Falmouth Town Council was able to develop a plan to keep the Lunt/Plummer site in civic use without raising our taxes. As a result, I am voting yes on Question 1. What really appeals to me about this plan is that the town cannot increase property ta...

    Six reasons for Falmouth to vote no on Question 1 on June 14: 1 — Depressed Real Estate Market with no relief in sight. 2 — Expensive surprises often found when renovating old buildings. 3 — Shaky and unknown future for libraries. 4 — Need to fu...

    I am writing to add my voice to the people in Falmouth supporting Chris Orestis for the Town Council election on June 14.
