Dear Editor: As the old costly year ends, I have been asked by The Tax Payer's Alliance to comment on the reform of the town meeting process. The meeting is supposed to be a democratic form of government. But, if most people sit home and let a small group run the town meeting, set policy, spend...
Dear Editor and Fellow Citizens,   Would you put this sign in front of your house: "There Are No Guns In This House?"  Of course you wouldn't, because such a sign would be a magnet for home invaders, thieves and rapists.   So why do you send your children to schools where such signs are posted?  ...
Dear Parents and Caregivers, As the President and others have said, our hearts are, indeed, broken in the aftermath of the tragedy at Sandy Hook. There are no easy answers and, as hard as it may seem to believe at this moment, schools remain the safest places for children in Groton-Dunstable and...
Dear Editor: "Everything ought to be as simple as possible, but not simpler." Albert Einstein (1879-1955). Would you like that extra hour of daylight on summer evenings offered by daylight savings time without ever resetting your clocks or watches? Simple solution: Fix a summer schedule and a...

Dear Editor: For many, if not most, of the town meetings I have attended, I have left the meeting feeling very frustrated because I was unable to vote for an article that was not discussed or the item discussed did not include enough information to allow me to make an informed decision. I have...
Dear Editor: I would like to thank Groton Fire and EMS personnel for the great response to the fire at my home on 26 Lost Lake Dr. on Nov. 27. The response time was great. If not for Groton Fire, my home would not be here. Thank you all so much. Geraldine Armstrong
Dear Editor: It is regrettable that some town officials are taking the lead in addressing and treating the symptoms of Lost Lake's demise, through the use of "safe" chemicals, rather than continuing to lead in understanding and treating the root causes of pollution at Lost Lake. Fall town...
Dear Editor: With the presidential campaign over, and even the Florida vote counted, we can draw at least one conclusion: Strong voter participation does not support and will not elect the radical fringe from either party. On Election Day, the Republican radicals were soundly defeated and were sent...
