  • Letter: Martin's Point plan will increase local traffic

    I am concerned by the Martin’s Point proposal for the development of the Hamlin School property on Route 77, at the intersection with Sawyer Street, in South Portland. My daughter attends preschool at Casco Bay Montessori School on the corner of Parrot Street and Route 77. We often walk to ...

  • Capitol Notebook: No more help for immigrants? No more 'phantom ballots'?

    Lewiston Mayor Robert McDonald surprised some observers at a legislative hearing last week with a comment he made about Somali residents in his city. The combative mayor has in the past been critical of the influx of Somali refugees who have settled in Lewiston. But at the hearing, ...

  • Letter: Falmouth should welcome bigger Walmart

    I watch in disbelief when Falmouth Councilor Bonny Rodden and her committees, Community Development and Long Fange Planning, work on Route 1. This has been going on since 2005 with Bonny and since 1995 with former Councilor George Thebarge. It’s about time the council closed down both commi...

Newman summarized his reaction to the November election and clearly remembered both his disappointment (over Eliot Cutler's defeat) and the affect on him of what he described as "meanness" shown in the campaign. Mr. Newman is a very upbeat and positive person and that is eviden... 1

  • Letter: Falmouth should ban smart meters

    Many in Falmouth are concerned about the lack of safety standards, harmful health effects, and violations of property rights regarding Central Maine Power Co.’s installation of smart meters, but were wrongly under the impression there would be a public hearing before the installation began.... 2

  • Letter: Yarmouth nurses say thanks

    A sincere thank you from the Yarmouth school nurses to the many volunteers who, once again, helped us make our seasonal flu vaccine clinics so successful. From the nurses who gave the shots, to the crowd-control experts, right down to the cheerful and enthusiastic volunteers who checked st...

  • Letter: Put smart meters in perspective

    The hoopla over the electric smart meters is a little baffling. I don't question the symptoms people are feeling, but I do question whether they've done their homework before making a diagnosis. If we were talking about toxic pollutants, it would make sense to raise an alarm and not wait ... 4
