  • Intentionally Unreasonable: The flag isn't South Carolina's only problem

    There is an old Scottish proverb with more than a little Biblical linkage: “Confession is good for the soul.” Always aspiring to provide goodness to the soul (mine or to others) I go forth today with a timely and topical deep-fried confession. For many years now I’ve held...

  • Capitol Notebook: Country finds grace, LePage faces a fall from it

    Friday, June 26, dawned like many recent June days; gray clouds hung in, and an unexpected rain had dampened the ground over the night. When that day ended, the world had shifted, moved by two stunning events. The United States Supreme Court affirmed that same-sex marriage is legal ...

  • Letter: Safe Chemicals Act deserves support

    As a pediatrician and father of a 4-year-old daughter, the health and well-being of children is forefront in my mind. It’s crucial to have common sense, science-based policies to protect children’s health. Maine’s Kid Safe Products Act and the phase-out of toxic BPA from childre...

  • Letter: Eliminate industrial operations in residential Cumberland

    The beep-beep-beeping of construction vehicles, the noise from the equipment being used and from dumping of material is loud and unhealthy. The activity of removing or processing gravel materials is a dusty industrial operation, not one conducive to a residential neighborhood. The heavy dump-truc...

  • Letter: Re-elect Pierce to Falmouth council

    We are writing to ask voters to support Teresa Pierce for re-election to the Town Council in the coming election.

  • Letter: Former Falmouth library president: No on Question 1

    My wife and I moved to Falmouth a little over 45 years ago. We feel moving the library from its present location would be a mistake and a waste of money because the 1995 expansion was planned with future on-site expansion in mind. How do I know? I served two terms on the Board of Trustees,...
