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...

To the Editor,      Well, it looks as if we might make it through another New England winter. One sign is that the sap is running (sporadically) in the sugar maples already. Consistent warm days and below freezing nights will get the season underway.    It’s not too early to tap the trees, whether...
Dear Editor:    Many weeks ago, I saw a notice beckoning “volunteers with chainsaws,” to clear trees off (the yard behind Boutwell House). My fellow citizens, it is apparent that most do not have the most fundamental understanding of life science as it applies to us.     The ever-ambitious human...
The following excerpt from D.H. Lawrence’s short story ‘The Rocking Horse Winner’ was adjusted and adapted.     "And so the town came to be haunted by the unspoken phrase: There must be more money! There must be more money!  The residents and taxpayers could hear it, though nobody said it aloud....
In these dark days, when partisan politics infects our day-to-day relationships, it is worthwhile to recall how people of goodwill can do the hard work, the ‘emotional labor’ of crossing the partisan political divide. This kind of work strengthens and brings forth the best of our town and our...
