  • 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

  • Ice storm heroics

    Another ice storm; whether it rivaled the 1998 storm will be debated in the days to come. I was sitting in the dark Friday night with a flashlight, book and scanner.

  • Beem's threat

    Edgar Allen Beem is as far left as the "lunatic fringe" of the right?

  • Storm surge

    I'm appalled that Edgar Allen Beem would complain about the fine job our CMP line workers do during a storm (The Universal Notebook, Dec. 3-5). As a wife of a line worker I know first hand how hard they work to get people's power on. The poor man from Yarmouth had little sleep that night due ...
