  • 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: Falmouth workforce housing lacks sense

    Here's another take on the issue of Falmouth's workforce housing: Only the government would be considering building housing when the real estate-for-sale inventory is at an all-time high. Only a government would be considering adding more housing to a market while the price of housing is dropping....

  • Letter: Grateful for Falmouth bus leadership

    As an early enthusiast of bus transportation from Portland to Falmouth, I would like to congratulate the many people who have guided our relationship to the Metro system. Of special interest to me is our new state status and being known from now on as an inherent part of the greater Portland sy...

  • Letter: Chase for Falmouth council

    I am writing to urge voters to support Fred Chase for the Falmouth Town Council. Fred was a councilor in the 1970s, when I served Falmouth as town manager. He was an outstanding councilor with a common-sense approach to the issues of that time. I am certain that same approach would apply toda...

  • Letter: Beem is wrong about marriage, religion

    "Gay marriage not a religious issue"? Marriage (as defined) has been a religious ceremony for centuries and it is quite appropriate that religious leaders speak up in its defense. Edgar Allen Beem's suggestion that "we would all be better off" if the churches would just see ... 1

  • Letter: The point of Tea Parties

    Tom Foley sounds like a patriotic American, but his letter misses the true meaning behind the Tea Parties. The Tea Parties were intended to make a statement about the egregious government power-grab, and the unprecedented growth in the federal budget deficit. It is not as much about the tax inc...

  • Letter: Thanks for the Falmouth Dialogue

    I want to express my sincerest appreciation to all of the 300-plus students, parents, staff and community members who participated in our Community Dialogue IV. The afternoon was, I believe, a huge success and feedback from participants has been very positive. It never ceases to amaze me what...

  • Letter: Brunswick's shame

    I know neither Mike Ouellet nor Councilor Karen Klatt, but what is evident to me is that in the search for political one-upsmanship, Klatt has foregone her duty to do what is right for the people and has made a mockery of an organization charged with leading the town of Brunswick. Whether you ...

  • Letter: Firefighter's accusers must testify

    A comment by a spokesman for Cumberland Police Department in the April 23 story "Cumberland-Portland firefighter's trial expected in May" is particularly worrisome: "... Police are hopeful, though not confident, that the alleged victims will not be asked to testify." The ri...
