In a letter posted November 6, Mr. Mike Metzger wrote, “I am not pro-abortion. I don’t know anyone who is.” Yet Mr. Metzger positioned, I believe falsely, the Senate bill 1209 ROE Act as a measure to protect women. It doesn’t. Let’s outline what the ROE Act really is: • It allows 16-year-old...
Phinney's (also known as Phinney’s Friends), a local nonprofit that helps low-income people keep their pets by paying for vet bills, medication, and pet supplies, is trying something new this year in light of Covid-19 restrictions.      Instead of its lively Holiday Festival at Lincoln’s...
Dear Groton voters, Thank you to the thousands of voters who supported my run for State Representative and to everyone who considered the candidates and cast a ballot in this race. Although my campaign did not prevail, we accomplished so much together. We garnered over 48% of the vote in a...
Regarding the Storm Water Enterprise Fund: Now I’ve seen everything: Taxpayers are being charged if it rains heavily for the water Mother Nature discharges into the ground. If I understand the definition of storm water correctly, we are being charged by the Water Dept. for the water used to...
Workers Credit Union is planning to become a Federal Credit Union instead of a Massachusetts Chartered Credit Union. I have received notice of a Special Meeting November 24 to vote on this.      If you are a member of Workers Credit Union, please vote against this change. The real issue is...

We think the Town owes a big debt of gratitude to our Town Clerk, Mike Bouchard and his staff, who ran a smooth operation of mailing thousands of ballots, processing these ballots and then running the general vote on November 3. This was a monumental task on its own, but it was also the fourth...
To Groton Select Board:      On 10/23/2020, all property owners of Groton were surprised by a bill from the Town of Groton that was not expected, nor adequately explained.      A very obtuse explanation of Stormwater Utility Fee was included on the back of the bill with only two "fine print"...
I am not pro-abortion. I don't know anyone who is. I find it difficult to imagine any woman's deciding to get pregnant so she can enjoy aborting a child. I think for nearly every woman, to abort must be a very, very painful, difficult, and damaging experience. There are other options for...
It was August, 2019. We had just stopped in Saxtons River, VT, at the Historical Society, 15 minutes before closing time. As my husband chatted with the docent, I casually picked up the museum newsletter from the mahogany console table in the entryway.      SHE VOTED FIRST... a story of the...
