  • Letter: Gideon deserves to be re-elected to House

    My husband and I set out to start a new business last fall, but it required legislation to make a go of it. Democratic Rep. Sara Gideon, our friend, worked tirelessly to write and pass the bill to open up a new market. I am inspired by her willingness to tackle big issues that prevent Mainers fro...

  • Letter: Re-elect Freeport's Gideon in House District 48

    Please join me in voting for Democrat Sara Gideon in her re-election to House District 48 (Freeport and Pownal). In her 2012 Maine House election, I drove Sara from door to door to meet and talk to what must have been thousands of residents. I was astounded at her commitment, her knowledge and he...

  • 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? ...

  • 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

  • Letter: Falmouth workforce housing lacks sense

    Here's another take on the issue of Falmouth's workforce housing: Only the government would be considering building housing when the real estate-for-sale inventory is at an all-time high. Only a government would be considering adding more housing to a market while the price of housing is dropping....

  • The Universal Notebook: The Class of '67 at 60: Games, dancing optional

    Back in 1967, I was way too cool to bother with anything as Mickey Mouse as a high school yearbook or class ring. I'm sure I must have gone to the senior prom, but I honestly don't remember it. So why is it that 42 years later I'm spending a lot of my free time trying to track down my old Westb...

  • Letter: Grateful for Falmouth bus leadership

    As an early enthusiast of bus transportation from Portland to Falmouth, I would like to congratulate the many people who have guided our relationship to the Metro system. Of special interest to me is our new state status and being known from now on as an inherent part of the greater Portland sy...
