    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45.

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45.

  • Letter: Share the beach in South Portland

    The City Council of South Portland acted wisely and correctly when it enacted its Willard Beach compromise last winter. This compromise allows dog owners and their supervised dogs on the beach from 7 am. to 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m during the warmer months of the year. The misnamed Save W... 1

  • Letter: Falmouth teacher a 'father figure'

    My son spent a great year in Paul Rosenblum's Falmouth class, and when he got an award from the Red Cross three years later he wanted Paul at the ceremony to share that moment with our family. I volunteered over 40 hours in Rosenblum's class. At all times Paul was an outstanding example and tea...

  • The Universal Notebook: Hot dog! It's summer!

    By the time you read this (unless you're reading it online, in which case you're probably too early), I'll be up at the church cooking. The sun came out today for the first time in a month, so it may finally be summer. Around here that means the Yarmouth Clam Festival (July 17-19) and the Yarmouth C...

    On July 20 the Yarmouth Town Council will discuss spending $175,000 to improve a small waterfront facility on Cousins Island. Currently the use of that area is well balanced between boaters, picnickers, kayak and canoe users, swimmers and the neighbors. However, some changes need to be made to def...

  • Letter: Falmouth fortunate to have Rosenblum

    I am writing in response to the story regarding Falmouth teacher Paul Rosenblum. My daughter just graduated from Falmouth High School. Her senior discovery presentation required a Falmouth teacher be present; most students choose a high school teacher. My daughter chose Paul Rosenblum – her teache...

  • Letter: Falmouth 'mock wedding' isn't news

    I am writing this letter to you to express my concern about your quest for information about the "mock wedding" at Plummer Motz School and the implicit allegations of "cover up." As a parent of two children in Falmouth (and one recently in Mr. Rosenblum's classroom), I rely on Th...

  • Letter: Farewell from Freeport school chief

    I would like to thank the citizens of Freeport for your support to education. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your superintendent of schools over the past five years. During this time the work of the schools has been productive, interesting, at times challenging, but at all ti...

  • Letter: Falmouth teacher is 'the best'

    I am a parent of a former student of Falmouth teacher Paul Rosenblum. My son was in his class in 2005. He was by far the best teacher my son has had to date. Many teachers are dedicated and do a great job, but the enthusiasm "Mr. R" brings to the classroom is special. He attends to each st...
