  • Letter: Summit needs to keep promises

    I was skeptical when a representative from Summit Natural Gas said I would have gas by Nov. 1, but I decided to put my faith in the company. After all, they were generating excitement and taking pictures with community leaders. Surely, they would keep their commitment. I, like everyone els...

  • The Right View: In age of school bullying, heaven help us

    If you are the parent of a child who is bullied, at some point – once you get over your initial devastation – perhaps you begin to think of the child who is doing the bullying. Perhaps you ponder the cause. Many of us tend to think kids who bully are hurting in some way, are lo...

  • Letter: Falmouth should reuse old schools

    I am writing to express my support for the proposal to convert the Lunt and Plummer-Motz campus into a community space, with a possibility for the Falmouth library to expand to the site as well. These beautiful historic buildings would provide a much-needed amenity to our community, in a conveni...

  • The Universal Notebook: Langlais in limbo

    As the Portland Public Art Committee ponders whether to dismantle and store “Tracing the Fore,” the stillborn sculptural installation in Boothby Square, its members might do well to consider the fate of another dismantled work of art that has been languishing in limbo for the past 30 ...

  • Letter: Woodbury for state Senate

    A vote for Dick Woodbury, who is running as an independent for state Senate, is a vote for an opportunity for Maine to fiscally right itself. He has a well-grounded vision for Maine in terms of its financial policy, education priorities and quality of life issues. His legislative experienc...

    State Rep. Mary Nelson has served Falmouth very well and deserves our support on Election Day. Nelson has been a strong leader in three of the most important issues facing Maine: creating good jobs, investing in sustainable energy and ensuring that our education system from kindergarten th...

  • Letter: Vote GOP slate in Yarmouth

    Many voters in Forecaster country will be voting early via absentee ballot. As the mother of young college graduates who have little hope of being employed in Maine’s dismal job market, I urge my fellow voters in Yarmouth to join me in voting for the slate of Paul LePage for governor, Dean ...

  • Letter: Re-elect Nelson in Falmouth

    As a former state representative, I write in support of re-electing Mary Nelson to represent Falmouth in the Maine House of Representatives. Mary's strengths are her strong sense of fiscal responsibility, her understanding of the need to invest in education and her realization that Maine's clean...

  • Letter: Beem column points to LePage

    With regards to Edgar Allen Beem's column, "Cutler's anonymous critics keep the biggest secret," I'd like to go out on that limb and guess. First let me say that while I don't always agree with Beem's points like gay marriage, he's a real treat to read; we're both liberals, although I call mysel...

  • Letter: Railroad is the Maine attraction

    I'll add my two cents worth to keep and support the various efforts throughout Maine to preserve the 2-foot railway heritage. Bridgeton, Alna, Wiscasset, Boothbay and Portland all benefit from this history and the reason I will make another trip to Maine. The great people and food we found along ...
