  • 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: Don't restrict dogs on beach

    On June 9 there will be a vote on the South Portland school budget at the South Portland Community Center. There will be a couple of citizen-initiated petitions you may be asked to sign when you go to cast your vote. One of them is to ban access for people who walk their dogs on Willard Beach f...

  • Letter: Vote yes to save Main Street

    We've seen the signs urging us to "Save Main Street" in Cumberland by voting no on June 9. Instead I urge you to vote yes. This issue is about preserving one of the few remaining small business locations on this stretch of road. If we don't keep the businesses we have, Main Street c...

  • Letter: Yes on school budget

    We'd like to remind you that on Tuesday, June 9, the polls are open at Falmouth High School. Not only is it the election of town councilors and School Board representatives, but it is also time to vote on the school budget validation referendum. Vote yes. The Falmouth School Departm...

  • Letter: Endorsing Wrobleski

    As two former town councilors and a former chairman of the Falmouth Zoning Board of Appeals, we are writing to support enthusiastically Joe Wrobleski's re-election to the Falmouth Town Council. Joe has been one of Falmouth's best town councilors, and deserves re-election. His leadership, good...

  • Letter: Re-elect Wrobleski

    Please join me in supporting Joe Wrobleski's re-election to the Falmouth Town Council. Through his work as the council's liaison to the Long Range Planning Advisory Committee (LPAC), I have come to know Joe as a knowledgeable advocate of reasonable natural resources protection policies. LPAC ...

  • Letter: Clear thinker, hard worker

    I appreciate the careful and intelligent thought Joe Wrobleski applies to all issues he encounters. He consistently reserves judgement until he considers all relative concerns and consequences. This is a developed thinking skill coming from many years practicing law as well as many years servin...

  • Letter: Vote for Chase, Armitage

    I moved to Falmouth in 1970 and bought a lot from Fred Chase in Brookside Forest. I have always found Fred to be an honest and reasonable person. When he was on the Town Council back in the 1970s he would always be accessible and his decisions were made with a lot of thought of how it would aff...

  • Letter: Cumberland contract zone is poor policy

    I agree with Cumberland Town Councilor Michael Perfetti, contract zoning is "poor public policy." Zoning is the only legal protection citizens have to protect the quality of life purchased by investment in their property. Families in residential zones should feel secure that business...
