  • 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.

  • Letter: Vendor's attitude mars Scarborough event

    Summerfest 2014 in Scarborough was a great event. We recently moved to Maine and this was our first experience. We had a great time and especially enjoyed the fireworks. I did experience one very negative aspect: the guy selling "novelty" smoking cigarettes to kids. I was appalled and spok...

  • Letter: Praise for Cumberland officials, employees

    I am writing to express my support and thanks to the Cumberland Town Council and our town manager for their selfless giving to the community in which they live and serve. They are guided by our Comprehensive Plan and do what is best for the town and citizens. Although I do not always agree...

  • Letter: Don't break the promise of Social Security

    Aug. 14 marked the 79th anniversary of Social Security. When it was first signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935, nearly half of all older Americans were living in poverty. Today, the program keeps 109,000 Mainers from falling into poverty, and more than one-third of those tha...

  • Letter: Falmouth bus-stop bench a welcome addition

    Many older people who no longer choose to drive their own cars are pleased to use the No. 7 METRO bus that we are so lucky to have in Falmouth. Shaw's supermarket has made it possible for its customers to buy tickets, to save on fares, and to have a stop right out in front for all to use. However...

  • Letter: McDonald-Smith right about 'equality gone wild'

    I would like to commend The Forecaster for having the courage to include Julie McDonald-Smith's views from the right. Her recent warning to parents of college-bound students (high-schoolers take note as well, I might add) exposes the left's equality-gone-wild agenda. Human value and the inherent ...

    Many thanks to the Cumberland community for participating in the democratic process and signing the recent petition that will allow our community to vote on the contract zone impacting Harris Road.

  • Letter: Vote yes on Question 1 to ban bear baiting

    Growing up in Aroostook County shaped my unwavering work ethic, respect for community and family, and passion for stewardship of the natural environment and creatures in it. Being from "The County" made me care about things in a way people "from away" don’t quite understand. I grew u...

  • Letter: Ewe can count on folks in North Yarmouth

    This is a letter of thanks to the friends, neighbors and passersby who stopped to help my family capture our wayward ewe. Our adventures began on a Saturday with our purchase of two ewes from a farm in Brunswick. We loaded them into our trailer and headed home. Imagine our distress when, upon arr...
