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

  • 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: Vote for Chase, Armitage

    I moved to Falmouth in 1970 and bought a lot from Fred Chase in Brookside Forest. I have always found Fred to be an honest and reasonable person. When he was on the Town Council back in the 1970s he would always be accessible and his decisions were made with a lot of thought of how it would aff...

  • The Universal Notebook: Do the right thing

    Earlier this month we paid $775.28 to replace the catalytic converter on one of our cars. The old catalytic converter did not affect the operation of the car at all and the new one didn't improve it, but in order to get a state inspection sticker it had to be replaced. I wasn't at all pleased t...

  • Global Matters: The incurable cancer of anti-Semitism

    TEL AVIV, Israel — Sitting on the balcony of my hotel, enjoying a lovely view of the Mediterranean Ocean, it's easy to forget that the nation of Israel is not only targeted by its political adversaries, but is inhabited by a people whose houses of worship – even in the United States – rem...

  • Letter: Cumberland contract zone is poor policy

    I agree with Cumberland Town Councilor Michael Perfetti, contract zoning is "poor public policy." Zoning is the only legal protection citizens have to protect the quality of life purchased by investment in their property. Families in residential zones should feel secure that business...

  • Letter: Family says thanks

    We would like to take the time to thank our friends and neighbors in the Cumberland community for the support and encouragement our family received after an emergency medical ordeal which began last November. We would like to especially thank Pastor Gayle Holden and the congregation of the Wes...

  • Letter: Since when is love a sin?

    Having just read the letter arguing against same-sex marriage from Jane Atwood, I find her arguments creative and self-serving. She states, "From Genesis to Revelation, homosexuality is listed as a sin." Well, no. Leviticus' author lists that a man "shall not lie with a male as w... 2

  • Letter: Don't pick that flower

    I am very sad and angry. Last year while walking my dog on Cousins Island, I discovered a pink lady's slipper growing a little ways off the road. I was thrilled. I have rarely seen this plant on the island. Pink lady's slipper, also known as Cypripedium acaule, is one of our largest orchids, a ...
