  • 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

  • Bartlett Circle's future

    Thank you for the terrific article on Bartlett Circle in your March 19 issue. We are very proud of Bartlett Circle's 33-year history of providing a low-cost, comfortable residential community for Yarmouth elders. In fact, the Southern Maine Council on Aging says we're unique in that we run enti...

  • Cosmetic injuries

    I was glad to read your article on former Ms. America Susan Jeske's upcoming appearance at USM on March 27 and her mission to warn the public about the dangers of chemicals and heavy metals in health and beauty products. It is disturbing that the cosmetic industry is mostly unregulated and the...

    I am writing to express the great disappointment I feel for the shameful way South Portland treated some well-respected, long-time employees who were known for exemplary service in their departments. For me, this whole sorry event raises questions about the personal integrity, accountability an...

  • Scarborough feedback

            The boards of the Scarborough Community Chamber and Scarborough Economic Development Corp. wish to thank those in the business community who participated in a series of successful forums held on March 4 and 5 at the Sca...

  • Be heard

    President Obama has indicated in numerous speeches that it is the responsibility of citizens to take part in the democratic process by speaking out about what matters to them. In fact, his administration created a Web site to collect our feedback. I think it is crucial that we take his mandat...

  • Input needed on facilities

    I want to thank the 140 people who attended the March 12 public meeting organized by Falmouth's Ad Hoc Community Facilities Planning Committee. In advance of this large event, members of the committee visited with more than 30 community organizations to spread information, gather feedback and ...

  • Facilities event fails

    Last week I joined 130 or so of my fellow Falmouth citizens, and what appeared to be the entire town staff, at the much-heralded Community Facilities Planning event. The 98 percent of town residents who were tied up making a living or putting kids to bed missed quite a time. The coffee was hot,...
