To the Editor: The Herald article on the conversion of the Prescott School to a Senior Center for a potential cost of $7 million (see January 20 edition) left me wondering if the folks driving this idea had lost sight of reality. This town won’t approve school cost override requests, much less an...
Dear Editor: I am writing this letter in reference to the Groton Senior Center. The present Center has many issues which need to be addressed to ensure that there is enough space for the growing senior population and that the site can meet program and safety requirements. At the Spring of 2016...
To the Editor, Every town has a compelling story to tell along with a ‘vibe’ that projects decades of human and geographic memories. As I read the ongoing coverage in the Groton Herald of Groton’s plans for future growth and construction, I am saddened to see an almost careless concern for Groton...
Dear Editor, Although I have no personal connections with any of the students or families, I was deeply saddened to learn that the GDRSC Chamber Choir will not be performing in Saint Anthony’s Basilica in Italy. Leslie Lathrop is free to express her ideas and opinions, but students in the choir...

This is GD Youth’s second-year heading to a National competition! With travel only a month...
Dear Editor, As town seals go, Groton’s is relatively inoffensive. Compare it to Whitesboro’s, which the town astonishingly voted 157-55 to keep http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/23/nyregion/in-reversal-village-of-whites.... It wasn’t until the Daily Show’s investigative inquiry went viral that...
