Letters

I was awoken on Father's Day morning with a call from my husband to run down to the Groton Country Club to see the hateful graffiti targeted at African Americans.      I took photos and spent time with a few others looking at the graffiti with disgust. This isn't the first time this has...
I have been told by the Groton Town Clerk's office that all MA voters can get an absentee ballot by first applying for one.      A letter in the Groton Herald last week stated, "Currently in MA, a person may vote by mail (aka absentee ballot) only with an excuse for being unable to be at the...
To whomever felt the need to spit out fear, hatred, judgment, and anger, I reach out to you to say you have my sympathy. You must have a great deal of unresolved feelings. You must feel superior to those who think and feel differently from you. Maybe you have friends or family who have tried to...
I rarely write letters to the editor, but after reading the recent letters claiming that our town is "elitist" for owning a country club, I felt the need to speak up.      If you have ever golfed at the Groton Country Club, as I have, it is apparent that it is by no means exclusive. It is a...
The Groton Interfaith Council is both disturbed and saddened by the graffiti tagged around Groton last night.      These hateful acts of vandalism reveal how necessary it is for the Interreligious Community and all people of good will to work together in the cause of justice. An attack on any...
Ed Note: The following open letter was sent to the Town Water Department by a resident. The Water Department responded to the questions asked in the letter with illuminating responses.   Dear Town Water Department,      I have questions related to the town's recent restrictions on water...
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...
