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...

Dear Editor: ‘In God We Trust’ on US coins and newspaper money has long been a point of contention with certain segments of the American populace. It has been challenged in court a number of times as a violation of the Establishment clause of the US Constitution’s First Amendment and of the...
Dear Editor: Community Preservation Committee Proposal B: Baddacook Pond Restoration needs your vote at Spring Town Meeting, April 24. Baddacook Pond is infested with non-native, invasive weeds. These weeds degrade water quality, natural habitat and recreational use. Unfortunately, they are a...
Dear Editor: As the town’s legislators, Groton voters enjoy a civic opportunity not available to those living in cities or outside of New England. They alone possess the authority to appropriate spending and pass bylaws as Town Meeting which convenes April 28 at 7 p.m. at the Middle School. Voters...
Dear Editor, The Groton History Center’s wine tasting on March 11th was a huge success because of the way our community responded to the invitation to party. In addition to all the people who turned out for the festivities-the food, the tastings, the conversations, the wonderful music turned out by...
