    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: Keep W. Harpswell School

  • Making 'lemonade'

    On Jan. 2, Soft Trac was one of 26 businesses who suffered the loss of their main office due to a fire that destroyed the building at 500 Route 1 in Yarmouth. While we were determined that we would not let the fire distract us from our mission of giving back to our community by helping nonprofi...

  • Parking problem grows

    I am a student at the Southern Maine Community College. I have been attending this college for almost a year. I have noticed that students do not have much of a parking space.
