  • Editorial: North Yarmouth sends the wrong message by pulling the plug

    If you're of a certain age, you probably remember the opening narration of the early 1960s sci-fi TV show, "The Outer Limits": "There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will brin...

  • The Universal Notebook: Art in my life

    For the most part, my life in art has remained pretty much out of these columns, except perhaps when I was inveighing against our benighted governor a few years ago for his political attack on the Maine Labor History Mural for being too pro-labor. But art has been a big part of my personal and pr...

  • Global Matters: Timely message on the wings of Honor Flight

    It’s not something I’m particularly proud to admit, but I am not an especially patient person. My impatience is more pronounced when I travel. I bristle at long lines. I find other travelers annoying, and generally I don’t like crowds. When I travel, I like things to go my way.

  • Letter: Falmouth board needs Miller

    My wife, Marna Miller, is running for Falmouth School Board, and I cannot imagine a better candidate. Marna combines a background in higher education with a strong spirit for volunteerism and the enthusiasm of a parent with kids currently in the Falmouth schools. Marna is a creative thinke...

  • Letter: Murry for Falmouth School Board

    Mainers lament that our children go or stay away post education, settling elsewhere to make their living. Chris Murry Jr. has chosen to return to Falmouth to live his adult life and begin his career in Maine. Further, he hopes to participate civically by being elected to the Falmouth School Boa...
