Dear Editor,    Mike Metzger of Ayer, in his letter in the March 2 edition of the Groton Herald, raises some interesting questions.  I would like to make a few points in reply.    First, let me point out that the National Rifle Association (NRA) is not controlled by gun manufacturers.  The NRA...
  I spent the first 20 years of my life in Groton, much of it in the home of my grandparents, Donald and Evelyn Priest at 170 Old Ayer Road, also known then as Hillbrook Orchards. Their house, often referred to as the Prescott House, was built between 1791 and 1793 for Oliver Prescott, and was my...
Dear Herald Staff & Mr. Stewart,    I was delighted to see the article this week regarding Groton’s agricultural history. As an owner and operator of one of the few remaining “heritage farms” in Groton, I am very proud to be part of a community that cherishes its agricultural history — and I...
To The Editor,    Right now, the people in Groton have more confidence in our Police Chief than they do in the elected officials who are engulfed in their own chaos.     At Monday’s meeting of Feb 26, a suggestion was made for succession planning for the police department.  One of the major...
Dear Editor,      Indian Hill Music offered the J.D. Poor murals (located in the Oliver Prescott house) to the Groton History Center to ensure their future. Our organization is applying for funding to stabilize, remove, and install our murals at the Groton Inn where they will be on display and...
Dear Editor,    Once upon a time, when people were apparently better educated and more sensible, we all understood that “man” and “men,” when used in such contexts an “mankind,” “The Family of Man,” “All men are created equal,” “Board of Selectmen” and so forth was using “man” and “men” in a...
To The Editor,      Keep the J.D. Poor murals where they are. Leave the house where it is. I cannot possible believe that Indian Hill cannot find a use for this historic home.    At the very least it can be a welcome center, a small Groton Museum and more. Perhaps offices for some Indian Hill...
To The Editor,   Senator Marco Rubio has suggested that it’s impossible to craft a gun ban that can’t be circumvented, so attempts to establish bans are futile. He may be right. Maybe it is impossible to create any laws or restrictions that effectively reduce gun violence.    Why don’t we try to...
Dear Editor:    I am writing to respond to Emilie Faucher’s thoughtful letter about the environmental consequences of removing trees behind the Boutwell House (see Letters to the Editor, Feb. 16).  Ms. Faucher is correct that trees produce oxygen. They also remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere...
Dear Editor,    Like many, I was surprised and sorry to hear of Chief Palma’s resignation/retirement. I know what a good chief he has been, and I understand why people are upset. I don’t know the details of the situation between him and the BoS or others, including how some people may have clashed...
