  • Letter: Honor code enforcement shuns due process

    Thanks to Edgar Allen Beem for last week's commentary. That a Yarmouth High School student was apparently interrogated and sentenced by school authorities for an honor-code violation without representation – all based on a Facebook photo submitted by an anonymous source – looks like a...

  • Letter: Freeport pastor responds

    Stephen Farrand's letter in response to my letter begs for correction. The most up-to-date English translations of the Bible use the word "drunkard" and not the word "alcoholic" because it's not simply referring to those who need treatment, but those who in recent weeks hav... 2

  • Letter: Farrell for Portland Charter Commission

    Paul Farrell is a candidate for an at-large seat on the Portland Charter Commission and I urge you to join me in supporting him. Paul is a neighbor of mine in the Munjoy Hill neighborhood and a former co-worker from the Maine Democratic Party's Victory 2008 campaign. He is a talente...

  • Letter: Back the Cumberland credit union

    I will be voting yes on June 9 to support the addition of the credit union on Main Street in Cumberland. Over the past several years as both part of local government and a private citizen, I've participated in hearings on previous proposals regarding other Main Street projects. The ...

    As chairwoman of this year's American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Brunswick volunteer planning committee, I would like to thank residents of the Mid-Coast community for their generosity and support. I would also like to thank Brunswick High School for hosting this event. Eighty-eight teams part...

  • Letter: A pastor's position

    Steven Priestly's letter deserves comment. His characterization of Leviticus as "a long-winded, spiteful and seemingly arbitrary tirade" misses the fact that Leviticus 18 not only prohibits homosexual conduct, but bestiality and incest – sexual relations with the same persons menti... 1

  • Letter: Yarmouth candidate apologizes

    I am writing to apologize to Yarmouth Town Councilors Karl Steinbach and Jeff Darrell for conveying an error as part of an ad that I placed in The Forecaster pertaining to my candidacy for Town Council. In my ad I incorrectly stated that none of the current councilors had children in the Yarmouth s...

  • Letter: Don't waste your 2nd chance

    As I logged into Cumberland's Web site to view the results of the school budget vote on May 26 I was shocked and disappointed not only by the result of the vote, but the fact that only 583 of the 5,837 registered Cumberland voters chose to let their voices be heard. To the 10 percent who voted...

  • Letter: Brown for SAD 51

    We are writing to ask for your support for Mike Brown as a candidate for School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors. Mike has been a resident of Cumberland for more than 10 years and has always been interested and involved in the community, most recently as the vice chairm...

  • Letter: Every vote really counts

    True story: I picked up The Forecaster last Tuesday and read about the SAD 51 budget and that there was to be a vote scheduled for that day. It was 3 p.m. so I didn't have much time, but raced to the polls to vote.
