Dear Editor,   In my recent letter about gun control and the types of people who commit mass murders, I gave general examples based on known facts about a large number of such criminals (or terrorists; perhaps a better word to use).  What I didn't do was cherry-pick examples to make my point.  I...
To the Editor: I am taking the opportunity to endorse Josh Degan for selectman. He and I came on to town government at the same time driven by the same circumstance. He has done an outstanding job as planning board member and selectman. Therefore, I believe the town loses if he is not reelected....
Dear Editor, Fire House contracts are awarded so it must be time to move on to planning for the next project to be presented to Town Meeting. It was stated that the plan was always to fund the Fire House under the levy limit, although I did not see any public commitment to this, and thus prevent...
Dear Editor: I worked myself through Brooks Lyman's Letter to the Editor of Feb. 15 in an effort to find a smidgen of sympathy for the victims of our gun culture. You know, the families of the 26 victims in Newtown, CT; the families in Aurora, CO who lost members to a shooting in a movie theater...
Dear Editor: The Groton-Dunstable Athletic Booster Club will begin its 2013 Phonathon on Monday evening, March 4. The Phonathon, the major fundraiser of the year for the Booster Club, will run for a three-week period, with calls being made by our student-athletes each weeknight, Monday through...
Dear Editor: Cassius: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves....", Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar", Act I, Scene II. Although I am a sitting member on the Groton Town Meeting Review Study Committee, this Letter is being written, with genuine regret, as the opinion of a...
Dear Editor: We would like to comment on the recent town meeting vote. Of the 7,500 registered voters, only 300 showed up to vote. This, in our opinion, is disgraceful. Some people left before the firehouse article came up. Why? We don't know. 222 voted for the firehouse and 58 voted 'no'. We...
Dear Editor,   When the Founders (mostly Thomas Jefferson) wrote the Declaration of Independence, they made two statements:  The basic principles of existence for a free people, and a list of grievances against the British Government for attempting to abrogate those principles, which they...
Dear Editor, Saturday, Jan. 26, sunrise and the day began at a crisp, but sunny eight degrees. A dusting of snow accented the temperature. Arriving at the Performing Arts Center, I was surprised to see a full complement of shuttle buses dropping off the elderly with their walkers and wheelchairs....
Dear Editor: I and another customer of Donelan's witnessed a very usual event last Saturday evening as we left Donelan's Market at about 7:45 p.m. I was just about to get into my car (as I faced the liquor store across Main St.) when there was the sound of an explosion, breaking of glass/collision...
