Dear Friends of GCD,    It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that the September 2018 dinner on Friday, Sept. 28 will be our last dinner. While volunteers come forward every month to help us build the community that we want to be, the leadership of our organization has been dwindling. We don’t...

Dear Editor,    You began your report in the September 7 issue of the Groton Herald “The Town Won’t Let Us Park On Our Own Land’ with the opening line: “Imagine yourself caught up in this nightmare”. Regrettably my partner and I don’t have to imagine this nightmare; we are living it! To call it a “...
Dear Editor,     As an owner of multiple firearms and a resident of Groton, I felt compelled to write in response to Mr. Lyman’s simplistic screed on firearms being carried by “...trained volunteer school faculty...”      Mr. Lyman’s meandering letter, which makes clear his predisposition towards...

To The Editor,    I am proud to be unenrolled and am proud to be supporting Beth Lindstrom on September 4 for her run for the U.S. Senate primary. I encourage other unenrolled voters to take a Republican ballot to support Beth.       I was introduced to Beth when she bought a local business....
Dear Editor:    Clearly, I have too much time on my hands; I have read the David Brooks article, “ We’ve tried Liberalism and Conservation and Now We’re Trying Populism.  How About Localism?” (See Page Two, August 24, 2018 issue). I think not!      Our forefathers wrote a constitution knowing we...
