  • Letter: Denno has right background for Legislature

    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45. Dale has the skills and experience to make our government more cost-effective and responsive to all Maine citizens. With an extensive business background,...

  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45. Dale has worked in the public and private sector, and contributed countless hours to public service. In his various roles, he has had the opportunity to successfully work with b...

  • Letter: No need for Falmouth consultant

    I respectfully question why the Falmouth School Board finds it necessary to line another consultant's pockets with our money and then embark on a long and costly search process for a new School Superintendent. Doesn't our School Department have a succession program where each level of supervision is...

  • Global Matters: Health care rhetoric is enough to make you sick

    It's difficult to imagine a more disheartening display of public discourse than that which has surrounded the recent debate over health care in this country. From the confrontational smack-down between an angry constituent and Sen. Arlen Spector, D-Pa., to the pistol-packing zealot outs... 4

  • Letter: Cacoulidis deserves support

    Plans like John Cacoulidis' desire to erect a high-rise office building in Portland should be accepted with open arms. All too often, however, illogical opposition to such projects runs rampant. A global recession is as good a time as any to call this behavior what it is: nonsensical.

  • Letter: Next governor? Rowe

    I have regularly read and enjoyed Edgar Allen Beem's columns. He is an excellent writer who usually captures well the essence of Maine. That's why I was so surprised and disappointed by his wild prediction that a newcomer candidate with little, if any, public service experience would become Maine'... 3

  • Beem divides, unites

      As I read The Forecaster's August 13th issue I was amused to note that the subject of all of the letters was Edgar Allen Beem. He is certainly a polarizing figure. I then read his weekly column entitled "A show of hands". Left, Right, Liberal, Conservative; we sh...

  • The purpose of Beem

    Edgar Beem's "Glen Beck, the 'Libertarian Limbaugh'" in the July 31 Forecaster caught my eye; Beck and Limbaugh are familiar personalities that I occasionally hear on the radio. The headline implied there might be some discussion on Libertarian views etc. After reading the first paragraph'... 2

  • The Universal Notebook: And the next governor of Maine will be ...

    The next governor of Maine won't be chosen until Nov. 2, 2010, but I'm pretty sure I can already tell you who the winner will be. Even if I'm wrong, it's no-news August, so no one is going to remember 15 months from now. And if I'm right, you can be sure I'll remind you repeatedly. 3

  • Superintendent's Notebook: 6 bridges to improve our schools

    Schools can no longer work in a vacuum. As society's expectations of the schools grow beyond just educating children, our schools need to be integrated into the very fabric of our communities. Our school system must make meaningful connections to city government, nonprofit groups, ...
