  • The Right View: Film raises the question of a world without 'America'

    Dinesh D'Souza's "America" was not what I was expecting. In the promotions for the documentary, D’Souza states, “America. Imagine what the world would be like without her.” It was a fascinating concept to me, to see one person’s interpretation of what the world woul...

  • The Universal Notebook: Confessions of a (recovering) soccer dad

    Our daughter Tess played soccer from the time she was a little girl until she got to college. Prior to her taking up the sport, I had little or no interest in the game. Then we lived the devoted lives of soccer moms and dads through travel team to premier and high school varsity soccer. It...

  • Letter: Amazed by Pine Point process

These are all good people, all with families, all hard-working people who until recently were getting along just fine. Are...

  • Letter: Forward thinking, quick action pay off

    During the Greely High School performance of "Anything Goes," a grandfather of one of the performers on stage collapsed in the audience. Many people quickly came to his aid. Those in the audience comfortable with emergency resuscitation began an assessment and started CPR. With no palpable puls...

  • Letter: Nurses thank Falmouth community

    The Falmouth school nurses would like to thank the wonderful volunteers who contributed to Falmouth’s public health by assisting at our three successful flu clinics. We vaccinated over 1,000 students against the seasonal flu and over 1,400 students against H1N1. It was a true community ef...
