What I wish for today: A day like today all over the world. Groton had a pandemic safe spring town meeting out of doors. An exquisite day, hundreds of chairs appropriately spaced, set up all over the running track behind Flo Ro school. Socially distant sign-ins. Newly re-elected and other Select...

Poison ivy lurking under and around a Rail Trail bench. 

There is a very bad poison ivy hazard on the Nashua River Rail Trail in Groton. A bench directly on the trail on which unsuspecting people might sit is loaded with poison ivy. This bench is about 200 yards south of the intersection of the rail trail with Broadmeadow Rd. in Groton.      I...
The closure of the school district on March 13 certainly turned the teaching world upside down. For the first three weeks, we held daily video conferences with students and offered them a range of activities to keep them engaged as we waited for further instructions from the state.      At the...
Write-in campaigns are always a long shot but at least this year served to enliven our local town election.      Congratulations to Alison and Becky and best wishes to them as they, along with Groton's other Select Board members, navigate the challenges that lie ahead.      It was an...

Thank You To The Voters   I want to express my whole-hearted gratitude to the voters for re-electing me to the Select Board. I said at the Virtual Candidates Night that I am both humbled and proud to be part of the Leadership Team in Groton, and I am thrilled to be able to continue working...
Dear Groton Police, I marched for Black Lives Matter on Sunday but I did not march against the Groton Police Department. You have my deepest respect and gratitude. I did not march against every police officer in the United States. I marched against the systematic destruction of justice for...
It could have been my nephew. It might have been my granddaughters. Some see them as The Other, Adopted from other countries,  Hair the color of midnight, Skin the color of the rainbow.  Usually living peacefully without fear Until hatred takes over and spreads, Spreads faster...
