  • Letter: Hoffer is the source for high school sports

    As the parent of a high school athlete, I always look forward to Michael Hoffer's wonderful coverage of games. His detailed observation of the contest is always put into the context of the teams' histories and futures. His enthusiasm for high school sports infuses everything he writes, and he alw...

  • Intentionally Unreasonable: It's Stevoe versus the status quo

    Let me begin this new column with a proper introduction; my name is Stevoe and I’m an unreasonable man through and through. This self-designation is borrowed from George Bernard Shaw and his maxim, “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists i...

  • Letter: Do something about climate change

    On Saturday, Oct. 24, people all over the world will be working to raise awareness about climate change and to communicate to our leaders that we need strong action to lower carbon emissions and transition to a non-fossil fuel based economy. There will be events in places as far apart as Falmouth an...

  • The Universal Notebook: The Bible is not the law of the land

    The campaign to repeal Maine's marriage equality act is being led by evangelical Christians and the Catholic Archdiocese of Maine. We can assume that their opposition to same-gender marriage is biblical in nature. But what does the Bible say about homosexuality? And, more to the point, does it matte... 8

  • Letter: Call it 'civil union,' vote yes on 1

    Gay marriage advocates just don't get it.! Almost all heterosexuals are trying to be fair about gay rights. And it is a common feeling that gay couples should have the same laws and protection afforded heterosexuals.

  • Letter: Vote yes on Question 1

    Opponents of Question 1 on the November ballot have billed themselves as "Protect Maine Equality." They infer that if same-sex marriage fails, equality will go out the door with it.

  • Letter: Disturbed by Falmouth councilors

    Thank you for sharing Tony Payne's first column and your "justification" for it. Your disclosure that two Falmouth town councilors objected is disturbing, and odd. The attempt by councilors to muzzle you smacks of censorship, or worse. You are a free enterprise company, trying hard, lik...

  • Letter: Follow the money, vote yes on 3

    Last year I had the privilege of working with concerned Falmouth residents to stop the state-mandated school merger of Falmouth and SAD 51. I came to appreciate the strength of a grassroots effort. We were successful, and Falmouth voters convincingly rejected the proposed merger. However, the ...

  • Letter: Bergquist for Brunswick council

    I encourage voters in Brunswick's District 4 to elect Jason Bergquist to the Town Council. In light of the closing of Brunswick Naval Air Station, many people in our community are especially concerned about our town's economic development. As the owner of a small business on Maine Street, I b...

  • Letter: No on Question 3

    As a former School Committee member in Freeport I believe now is not the time to give up on school consolidation. State funding is drying up. Last spring the Legislature removed approximately $37 million for next year's school funding. Because of the just-announced $200 million shortfall, the ...
