  • 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

  • Food banks need help

    When I immigrated to this country I needed so much help with clothes and food before I started my part time job. I had no way to go for help except one

  • Reuse, recycle

    I am a student at SMCC. I am living in South Portland, Maine. I used to recycle bottles, cans, papers, and boxes every day.

My students are from all around the globe, taking on the challenges of newness in language, culture, weather and food, to name only a few. One of our lessons this semester in writing class is learning ...

  • No need for rhetoric

    I was aghast to read on the front page of The Forecaster: "N.Yarmouth questions costs; Cumberland fears 'civil war.'" I avidly support North Yarmouth maintaining a strong, healthy relationship with Cumberland (and all of our neighboring towns), and I expect that my town's...

  • Falmouth nitty-gritty

    We need to reframe Falmouth's facilities questions from "Should we spend a million dollars converting two antique elementary schools to mixed use, single use or a new Town Hall?" to this: "Should we spend scarce money on old schools or repave Falmouth Road so we won't ruin our ve...

  • Serve America

    As this economic crisis deepens at the federal, state, and local level, the demand for critical services is going up while the resources to provide these services are going down. At the same time, nonprofit organizations, which are ground zero for providing services in our community, are strug...
