Railroaded?

To the editor: When the idea of bringing passenger rail to Brunswick emerged, a palpable buzz swept through town. Businesses were overjoyed with the prospects of shoppers arriving with empty shopping bags. More...

More than one day

To the editor: I write in response to David Ricker’s letter ( Dec. 13, “Merry Christmas”) about Ebenezer Scrooge being alive and well. I was raised a Catholic. I do not remember Ebenezer in any sermons. More...

An incredible performance

To the editor: We’re sure you are well aware of Brunswick High School’s excellence in scholastics and sports. You may not be aware that the same holds for their music program. More...

Favoritism ignored

CLARIFICATION

A Dec. 12 Monday Meter titled “Hostility trumps hospitality” did not make clear the difference between tax increment financing arrangements for the developers of the Inn at Brunswick Station and the Hampton Inn in Bath. More...

Missed signs

To the editor: This is an open letter to all who drive in and out of the Topsham Fair Mall onto Route 196. More...

Back to average

Reason to believe

Show must go on

To the editor: “Seussical” is the show that will not be stopped. More...

Sudden closure

To the editor: Imagine my surprise when I got to the People Plus building last week to see a sign saying the Teen Center is closed the month of December. This an especially critical time for young people. More...

Unfair attack

To the editor: I find it offensive that Peter Anastos would use this holiday season to voice personal and petty attacks on our Town Council members in a letter to the editor, “Unfair advantage,” which was published Dec. 9. More...

Holiday joy ride

To the editor: I send a big thank you to Tri- County Literacy Volunteers, their sponsors and the Maine Eastern Railroad for another successful Candy Cane Train. Children of all ages, their parents, grandparents and friends all had a wonderful time. More...

Merry Christmas

To the editor: Evidently, Ebenezer Scrooge is alive and well. Everywhere I turn — the television, the mall or the newsstand — the battle over “Merry Christmas” rages on. More...

To the editor: The Christmas season is supposed to be a time of love, faith and sharing. Have you been to a department or grocery store lately? People turn into crazy and nasty people. More...
