  • Letter: Richard for Falmouth state rep

    I am writing in support of Mark Richard for our Falmouth state representative. He is a Maine native, born and brought up here. He has served his country and is a small business owner. He will work to make Maine an easier place to do business by eliminating the taxes that burden companies. We ...

  • Letter: Falmouth Flyer a valuable community asset

    Coming from a small town in Connecticut, where there was regular bus service to downtown New Haven, it was a surprise to find that the east side of Falmouth had no bus service. The Falmouth Flyer has been a most welcome addition to the amenities Falmouth has to offer. The Flyer is one more reason...

    Please allow me to respond to Peter C. Felmly's Forecaster Forum regarding unfair treatment of Maine public school officials. First, we need to start with his failure to disclose to the reader that he is the attorney legally representing the very same schools that appeared in The Forecaste...

  • The Universal Notebook: Friends in orbit

    Funny how people pass through your life and you through theirs. Last week, I ran into an old friend in the Hannaford parking lot. As soon as I hailed her with an enthusiastic, “Hi, Gail!” I knew she wasn’t Gail. But I could not for the life of me remember her name.

  • No Sugar Added: Baby, I was born (not) to run

    I hate running. My adversarial relationship with the sport began as a freshman in college. After a few too many Fritos, a friend suggested we form a running group. Before I knew what I was being sucked into – wham! – my alarm clock was rudely awakening me at 4:30 a.m. on a chil...
