To the editor: Does it seem as if each new proposal is weaker than the previous one (Carpinoato, casino and now Legacy)? Mr. Hansen, Legacy's consultant, says "public, private partnership. No thanks sir, don't need to help you pay for this misguided project and our tax rate is already high enough. Hansen continues, “We don't have a proposal yet"! Then why are...

To the editor: This past Monday night, the Tiverton Town Council meeting hit a new low in fairness to their residents. Here’s what happened:  The Town Council president allowed an out-of-state developer, Legacy Development (“Legacy”), whose employees neither vote nor pay taxes in the town, to use the agenda to attempt to discredit Don’t Mall Tiverton, a local volunteer group opposed...

Ellen Mae (Gould) Harms, 77, of Turner, Maine, passed away in the comfort of her home, with her daughter by her side on Tuesday Dec 15, 2015.  She fought a brief but rapid battle with CNS Lymphoma.  Ellen was a mother, wife, sister, aunt and friend to many.  Her sweet disposition was enjoyed by all that knew her.

To the editor: Kate Levin’s so-called commentary that was published in last week’s issue of Shorelines is actually an edited version of the press release that her public relations and marketing enterprise Verve Creative Solutions recently produced for the Westport Rivers Winery. The owners of the winery probably felt the need for some public relations as they are being sued...

To the editor: This month, the 154 historic property owners on our list have been sent order forms for a historic plaque. We have received around 25 orders from owners so far, and are looking forward to receiving more in the near future. The Tiverton Historical Preservation Advisory Board publicized this program in October in the local papers as part of...

To the editor: Labeling GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) now is important because if we do not put laws on the books that favor labeling, we may lose the legal ability to ever put a label on GMO foods in the future.
