  • Letter: No on Question 3

    As a former School Committee member in Freeport I believe now is not the time to give up on school consolidation. State funding is drying up. Last spring the Legislature removed approximately $37 million for next year's school funding. Because of the just-announced $200 million shortfall, the ...

  • Letter: Cumberland Boy Scouts are grateful

    Last spring Boy Scouts of America Troop 58 had several fundraisers to go to Gettysburg, Pa. We made it and we learned a lot and had a great time. We would like to thank all the people who helped us out. We wouldn't have made it without you. Many thanks.   Sam...

  • Letter: No on Questions 1, 2 and 4

    This Election Day, we have a rare opportunity to show that we value our communities and the families that live in them by voting no on Questions 1, 2 and 4.

    "No on 1" and gay activists groups are desperately trying to assert their personal significance and respect, as they see it, of their relationships. But there is no way they can command respect by trying to force or seize the ways or structures, titles, names or definitions of some other g...

  • Letter: Good advice at Becky's Diner

    As an old fart who has emigrated to Maine from Pennsylvania, the very first publication I picked up and started perusing here was The Forecaster. With the clinking of cups and saucers in the background seated at the counter at Becky's Diner that day – the waitress had said if you want to be local...

  • Letter: Out & About column missed the point

    I am furious with Scott Andrews. His review of the comedy "Sylvia" at the Old Port Playhouse was not a review – it was a stupid, personal opinion that basically told us unless you are "very young and extremely attractive" there is no way that someone else of older age and ...
