  • Letter: Keep the heat on Falmouth council

    Election Day was an excellent turnout for the town of Falmouth, with nearly 33 percent of the voters coming to the polls. Congratulations to all the winners. Interestingly enough, a shift of only 50 votes from Ms. Rodden to Ms. DiBiase would have put Barbara DiBiase on the Town Council.

  • The Universal Notebook: Revenge of the dinosaurs

    Wouldn’t it just be ironic if the British Petroleum oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico ended up destroying our oil-fired civilization? What if, having punctured a hole a mile beneath the sea, BP was never able to stop the gushing of oil? What if the slick now devastating the coastal mar... 3

  • Forecaster Forum: Confessions of a Falmouth 'choice' bus rider

    I ride the Falmouth Flyer bus. Not because I have to, but because I choose to. I’m not even a regular morning commuter to Portland. If I were, I’d be riding a lot more, because the bus schedule right now is designed for commuters. When I first moved here five years ago ...

    For months before the Scarborough Walgreens opened I had been hoping the visually depressing grey screens behind the windows facing Route 1 would disappear. No such luck. I'm guessing that Walgreens has adopted a strategy of deterring any Oxycontin addicts driving by and considering a br...

  • Letter: Greely response was 'over the top'

    "Senior prank gone awry" (May 27) should more accurately have been headlined "Adult response gone awry." Greely's request for police presence May 17 was over the top, and Principal Mossca's fear that some of the visiting students wearing "Class of 2010" T-shirts might not be from Falmouth ...

  • Letter: Lawsuit wasted Yarmouth's money

    While this subject may have already had its 15 minutes of fame, I wanted to write regarding the Yarmouth High School honor code and the frivolous lawsuit filed by Michael Waxman several weeks ago. From the onset of this issue, I was appalled by the way in which Mr. Waxman handled it. By using ...
