  • 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: Vote for Orestis in Falmouth

    I am writing to endorse Chris Orestis for Falmouth Town Council. Chris made the effort to come by my house to speak with me and I was impressed.

  • Letter: Question 1 speaks to Falmouth's heart

    I was raised in Falmouth and went to school in the buildings involved in the Question 1 proposal. My mom was the assistant librarian at Plummer-Motz, and many community members were involved in building the outdoor classroom there, in her memory. So I have a lot of emotion invested in this...

  • Letter: Past leaders back Falmouth library move

    As past presidents of the Falmouth Memorial Library board of trustees, we would like to express our support for Question 1. The existing library does not meet the needs of the community. As much as people have strong sentiments for building, it needs major renovations to make it work. Duri...

    I have had the pleasure of working with Teresa Pierce for several years on the board of the Falmouth Education Foundation.

  • Letter: Slate voting damages Falmouth

    Falmouth has lost its way. The political discourse has turned contentious, rancorous, and at times ugly. It now appears that five individuals are running as a block for the two open Town Council seats and three open School Board seats. This strategy is a ploy to control local government and ultim...
