Dear Editor: Citizens of the town of Groton, I would like to begin my letter to you with a quote: “By the rude bridge that arched the flood, their flag to Aprils breezed unfurled. Here the embattled farmers stood, and fired the shot heard around the world…” Who were these brave men who...
To the Editor, Action taken by the Feasibility Study Committee regarding a new Senior Center in Groton was endorsed by the Board of Selectmen as they voted to warrant such action to the upcoming Town Meeting. This action, if ratified, will set aside further consideration of alternate sites quite...
Dear Editor: I would like more information on the history of our town seal. Do we have a professional town historian who could inform us as to whether our town seal design was meant to be a placeholder or that it represents purely Puritan ideology? I have always interpreted the date 1655 on...
Dear Editor, I write to expand on last week’s article: “Farmers Row Parcel Tops Senior Center List: Prescott Site Eliminated Due to Insufficient Time to Evaluate Parking Challenges.” The article may leave the impression with some that the decision to not recommend Prescott School for the...
To The Editor, Over the 55 years that I have been a resident of Groton I have seen many changes to the town; i.e. growth in population, homes, school and municipal buildings, etc. For the most part this change has been beneficial, but change can also be detrimental. The latest request for...
Dear Editor, The Groton Dunstable Schools have been so fortunate to have had Karen Tuomi on staff for 20 years, she is retiring this week. Karen is one of the most amazing women I know, she will be a very hard act to follow. Jane Bouvier

Dear Editor, Regarding our Town Seal: there is a book called The town and city seals of Massachusetts by Allan Forbes (accessible via hathitrust.org), that some may find interesting. It shows many town seals (including at least one other seal with an image of the Bible and many with churches) and...
To The Editor, From the lofty vantage of 2017 it is easy to forget the many that helped build the town we call Groton. We tend to study history featuring a few great people. In truth, we owe our status to the many, a truth proclaimed by our town seal. For those not familiar with the seal, it is...
Dear Editor, Groton faces many challenges.  Some are related to money - everything seems to cost more, and we seem to have ever-increasing calls for more people, programs, facilities and equipment that only makes the problems worse.  The Schools are only part of this problem.  I am running for...
