Dear Editor,    I consider the plastic “tee-shirt” grocery bag—the ones that Westford recently banned—to be a significant, if small, advance in civilization.    If you have ever carried several bags full of groceries out to your car instead of using the shopping cart (why make extra work for store...
To The Citizens of Groton,   It has come to my attention that one of the other candidates running for Select Board is leaving the impression that I have formed an alliance with them and that we are running together.   Let me make this crystal clear, I am running alone for the purpose to serve you...
To The Editor,    The audience at Saturday’s performance of Patriots’ Paths: Groton 1765-1776 left with many lessons from the founding of our nation, including this one: town meetings played a big role in founding our nation.    From Boston to Groton and beyond, town meetings enabled colonists to...

Playing the role of Groton’s last enslaved person at "Patriots Paths."

To The Editor,   This was the response from the author of the Paths to the Patriots Groton script that was presented at the Old Meeting House (First Parish) on Saturday evening. I can’t think of any higher praise than this from Mary Fuhrer:   What a rousing success Saturday night was! Your...

To the Editor:    Not every Letter to the Editor can be responded to...but the recent letter by Janet Landry Shea (April 12) requires a response because it put forth so many inaccuracies about the Prescott School that should these statements not be corrected, the public would be seriously...
Dear Citizens of Groton:     I would like to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Select Board. I am humbled to have served you as your Selectman for over 12 years. A lot of accomplishments have been achieved since I was first elected. There have been many successes along this curvy country...
To The Editor,    I am concerned about the possibility of a ticket tax on Indian Hill events. I think this is very short sighted and would set a dangerous precedent. We need to have a vision of Groton in time to come. I understand that school events would be excluded and they should be. But what...
Dear Editor:    Merriam Webster’s Dictionary definition of the following words;   Sham - not genuine: false, feigned, having such poor quality as to seem false, incomplete - unfinished, not complete.    Two words not having the same meaning.    The word ‘Sham’ was used at the Select Board meeting...
