    Letter to the editor: Council bent on turning Falmouth into high-density town

    The duplexes are marching into Falmouth at an ever-increasing pace. It makes no difference to our Town Council that we want to remain a community of single-family homes. Tuscan Way, a project that will result in 18 more families, crammed into a space that would normally only contain three to four single-family homes, is beginning […]

    Letter to the editor: Perception that Deering is unsafe doesn’t match daily reality, teacher says

    When school starts, in a few weeks, it’ll be the beginning of my 14th year teaching at Deering High School in Portland. The recent front-page article about the disparity in enrollment numbers between Portland and Deering high schools (“Deering enrollment tumbles as school wrestles with discipline,” Aug. 3) suggests that a few high-profile incidents last […]

    Letter to the editor: Don’t leave unattended pets in hot cars

    It happens every summer, and seems to be increasing along with the ever-rising temperature: dogs left in hot cars. I’ve called the police often and I’ve also confronted the perpetrators; mostly, I regret that move because of the abusive language and personal threats that are launched at me. Nevertheless, I persist in this crusade because […]

    Letter to the editor: America is not the land of the free

    We are not free from gun violence, because “We” cannot pass rational background-check legislation; “We” cannot prohibit military-type weapon and magazine sales and fund a national buyback of such killers; “We” cannot prohibit open-carry ordinances and restrict concealed-weapon permits to present and retired law enforcement personnel, and “We” cannot pass safe-school legislation to ensure that […]

    Letter to the editor: Evidence should be enough to impeach

    The crime of conspiracy is an intentional agreement between at least two people to commit a crime and then act on it. Donald Trump’s inner circle cooperated too many times with Vladimir Putin’s inner circle, maybe enough for the crime of receiving help to sway an election from a foreign power. Many of those meetings […]

    Letter to the editor: President Trump acts like a dictator

    Has anybody noticed how much President Trump acts like a wannabe dictator? He loves the dictators of Saudi Arabia, North Korea, China and, Russia. He tells us that, quite often. He knows nothing about tact; all he does is bully people everywhere. Please do not re-elect him. He’s a tyrant. Keep your eyes open, people […]

    Letter to the editor: Supporters of impeachment aren’t the ones fostering division

    I am disappointed with Rep. Jared Golden’s opposition to impeachment hearings for President Trump. Golden writes about the need for healing and national unity. While I support these things, I think they are not concepts that the Trump administration or the majority of Republicans in Congress hold in high esteem. Trump and the Republican Senate […]
