    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 Wrobleski, Armitage

    I am writing to encourage Falmouth voters to support Town Councilors Joe Wrobleski and Will Armitage on June 9. Wrobleski has worked tirelessly on such issues as natural resource protection, transparent governance and effective land use planning. Armitage has been an effective chairman and has pro...

  • Letter: Vote for Fred

    Before voting on June 9, ride around town and see Falmouth's beauty and assets. From the clear waters of the Presumpscot to pristine lakes, observe the results of hard work by Falmouth citizens. Fred Chase worked as hard as anyone. Breathe deeply the river air and thank Fred that yo...

  • Letter: Callous commentary

    I am of the opinion that the author of Police Beat went overboard in the April 30th issue of the Forecaster. It is disappointing to read the public humiliation of a local parent. I understand that the arrest is public information, but was it necessary to portray this mother of three in this manner? ...

    As a Cumberland resident, and a member of Atlantic Regional Federal Credit Union, I am urging the voters in my town to vote say "yes" on Question 1 on June 9. This organization is a small, local, non-profit financial institution. The credit union has met with the citizens ...

  • Letter: The Falmouth bubble

    I'm so delighted that I live in a Falmouth insulated bubble. So, $2.8 million for another indoor ice rink? While you're at it, why don't we close Route 1 from Depot Road to Bucknam Road and build an indoor covered swimming pool to attract winter tourists. Obviously no one in Falmou...

  • Letter: Salvation Army isn't charitable to all

    Having just read Kate Bucklin's article on VIA Group's efforts to promote the Salvation Army, I feel that some pertinent information was omitted. The Salvation Army, contrary to popular opinion, is not a charitable organization. It is a fundamentalist religious denomination that has helped spon...

  • The Universal Notebook: Falling $%# over a teakettle

    Something told me that I was going to come to regret spending an entire day of what's left of my life looking for a yellow teakettle, but I just couldn't help myself. It doesn't happen very often anymore, but when I was a kid I used to get these fixations on things I just had to have and I coul... 2

  • Letter: Marriage God's realm, not man's

    Edgar Beem concluded his May 8 column by stating that homosexuality is not a sin. It appears he is either quite ignorant of what the Bible teaches, or he has chosen not to believe the Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, homosexuality is listed as a sin.  Marriage was in... 1
