To The Editor,    I have been a nurse for almost 40 years and like all nurses I want to provide the best care for patients.  I have worked in a small community hospital as well as a large metropolitan hospital.  I do not believe that ballot Question 1 is the answer to safe nursing staffing.     ...
To The Editor,    I was disappointed to see Mr. Stewart’s article on question 1.    As a nurse for 37 years, I value and respect Nurse Zajac’s (I am sorry if I am misspelling your name, it is spelled 2 different ways in piece) opinion.    My concern is with the placement of Mr. Steward’s article,...

To The Editor,     Our two-story Hindu temple covering 40,000 square feet on 28-acres in Groton and accommodating up to 7,800 devotees, opens in Groton with 12-days of ceremonies ending October 20.    The Temple designed in the traditional style following Vastu Shastra with a main worship hall...
Members of the Select Board and Citizens     Four weeks ago I suffered a severe concussion. Recovery has been quite slow. I have been limited to working three hours per day, first thing in the morning only. I apologize for having missed meetings. Unfortunately I will miss the next four weeks of...
To the Editor:      Last week’s editorial “Don’t try to rewrite history …” missed the mark.            The override bid that was brought forward by the School Committee in 2016 was flawed and failed for multiple reasons, including an enormous monetary request that would have adversely impacted many...
Dear Editor,    In response to your article in last week’s Herald about the couple Heather Rhodes and John Reilly using their accessory lot to park cars. How many cars are we talking about here – 5, 10 or 50? This would turn the property into a sort of auto junkyard, which is a business.     In a...
