  • Letter: Murry's case for Falmouth School Board

    As the upcoming municipal elections in Falmouth draw near, I wanted to take a moment to write my fellow citizens regarding my candidacy for the School Board. As someone who has been raised in Falmouth and who resides here, I recognize the importance of our education system. As a former student re...

  • Letter: Keep the school budget referendum

    This June’s primary will have a busy list of items to vote on with candidates, bonds and local issues. One issue that needs your attention is that each school district must vote to reaffirm the school budget referendum process. It is imperative that you vote, if for no other reason than thi...

  • Letter: Beem's argument flawed

    Edgar Allen Beem says that by howling the Constitution does not give Congress the right to mandate health-insurance coverage, certain people "reveal their ignorance." It seems that Mr. Beem may not have read far enough in the Constitution to come across this passage. "No capitation, or oth...

  • Letter: Beem's value is inflated

    I don't know how much Edgar Allen Beem gets paid for being a contributing writer (and an obviously biased one at that). Whatever it is, he's being overpaid and should be enthusiastically sending more of it to Augusta and Washington. Mel Read

  • Letter: Shame on Beem, newspaper

    The Forecaster should be ashamed to have printed Edgar Allen Beem’s piece “Moral universe is no place for Tea Partiers.” I read Mr. Beem’s opinions shaking my head and usually he’s trying to convince the readers (more likely himself) that he’s a thoughtf... 10

  • The Universal Notebook: Moral universe is no place for tea parties

    “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. used this line in at least three of his historic speeches during the civil rights movement of the 1960s. It is an elegant and optimistic expression of the ideas that the un... 25
