Dear Editor: Losing town meeting concept plan review is a big loss to the town—I believe that the Planning Board does not appreciate, and possibly never has appreciated, the function that concept plan approval performed at Town Meeting.  It never was a substitute for the technical review functions...
To The Editor, The effort to find safe ways to combat the invasive aquatic plant, Cabomba, in Baddacook Pond is commendable, but will only temporarily address 5 of 30 acres present and has questionable effectiveness with several risks. The proposal to the Community Preservation Committee is a three...
Dear Editor, My unwavering support of Anna Eliot for re-election to the Groton Board of Selectmen is based on her integrity, reliability on fact-based decisions and a thoughtful, analytical vision for the future of our beloved town.  Anna is not the loud one.  Before quietly taking a stand...
etter to the Editor, I hope that everyone notices that Friends of the Trees has renamed their group “Friends of the Tree Warden”. We feel this most clearly defines our group’s main goal; to assist the town with tree planting. This could not happen without help of the Tree Warden, Tom Delaney,...
Dear Editor: Wow! Did we read that the town just lost $400,000 over the Boynton Meadows fiasco. This is worse than a bad night in Las Vegas. When this project came around, we felt it was a speculative project. That the town should not invest in real estate as they are not in the realty business...
Dear Alumni, Families, Community and Business Friends of Groton & Dunstable: Over the past year, we have formed a non-profit charity, GDatPlay, and have worked diligently to bring about safe, sustainable field renovations to our public high school’s campus. Known as the Fields Renovations...
Dear Editor, I’d like to weigh in on the question raised by Mr. Fishbone, et al, on whether we should make changes to our town seal.  We’ve lived in Groton for 24 years and, among other charms, love Groton for its historic character.  I admire our town seal for the traditional values it represents...
To The Editor,   I read with interest the news that several members of our community have placed an Article on our Town Warrant to erect stone markers with the motto “All Are Welcome” at various places around town. I think this is a lovely sentiment and I am sincerely glad to have been a resident...
Dear Editor: There is no need for me to go over our history in Groton... I am very well versed in it. My husband’s Aunt and parents made sure of that. You see, I am not from Groton. I was not born or raised here. But my husband is probably one of the last of the “Townies”. That, is a person who is...
Dear Editor, We are writing to support Anna Eliot’s reelection to the Board of Selectmen. Anna has been an integral and engaged member of our town for many years. She grew up here, raised her children here and now has grand children here. Her commitment is evident in the numerous boards she has...
