  • Letter: Cumberland officials behaving badly

    It is with great disappointment and in such poor taste I found the behavior of the Cumberland Town Council and town manager at last week’s meeting. State Rep. Michael Timmons, R-Cumberland, came at the invitation of the council to report on his change of vote on Land for Maine’...

  • The Right View: Maine, the way road rage should be

    Forgive my departure this week from the blood bath that is politics, but we live in an amazing place, and amazing places inspire amazing people. Maine is host to a myriad of road races, many of which raise astronomical amounts of money for exceptionally worthy causes. I’ve participat...

  • No Sugar Added: It's still a Barbie world

    A couple of weeks ago, my lovely mother, Louise, arrived for a visit. She brought with her a newspaper, with the front page of Section D boasting a Technicolor photograph of a middle-aged woman with a jaw-length hairdo, wire-frame glasses, and a disturbingly startled look upon her face. Ap...

  • Letter: Beem sees pension crisis through smoke, mirrors

    As typical of every spendthrift liberal, Edgar Allen Beem wants to slay Chicken Little. He disconnects himself with fiscal sanity and tries to reinvent Economics 101. In this spirit he refuses to recognize the fiscal insanity of his liberal icons. Does he remember Sen. Kennedy's bleating that S... 5

  • Letter: LePage fails the humility litmus test

    Gov. LePage's contempt for much of the population that differs from his point of view, is at once alarming and quite disturbing. A litmus test for any public servant that wants to lead and serve the common good should be love and tolerance for others. What we have here in Maine, is a governor ...

  • Letter: Vote for Maietta in Senate District 7

    We have a special election coming up May 10 and we will have two choices, a Democrat or a Republican. The last Democrat said he is moving away because he couldn’t find work here in Maine. How pathetic is that? If a sitting senator cannot find work here in Maine we are in trouble. I trul...

  • Letter: Orestis brings good experience to Falmouth council

    I have known Chris Orestis for a number of years. I was thrilled to learn he is running for Falmouth Town Council. His experience as a business owner will bring an important perspective to the council. As a business owner myself, I respect his responsible approach to ...

  • Letter: Orestis will make Falmouth schools a council priority

    We moved to Falmouth because we believed the town's public school system would give our children access to a superior education. Over the last several months, we have followed and contributed to the discussion on the 2012 school budget. We overwhelmingly support the budget and full-day kin...

  • Letter: Falmouth library, campus deserve support

    As a trustee of the Falmouth Memorial Library for the past four years, I have been deeply involved in addressing the space needs of our library. Circulation and usage have outpaced the growth of our town, to the point that our library does not meet state or national standards for space or access...

  • Letter: 'Town center' will make Falmouth proud

    Congratulations to the Falmouth Town Council and staff on marshaling balanced information and public comment. We are persuaded that the proposed Falmouth "town center" will provide a long-needed multipurpose facility. It will serve all ages. It's good economics: well-planned use of valuable sp...
