Dear Residents of Groton: You may not be well informed about the new Fire Station. It is easy to spend other people's money as long as fire station people tell you we need it. But do we need it what is proposed? Look at the cost of the Lost Lake Station! We have to take money (again) to finish a...
Dear Editor: Stuart Schulman's letter to the Groton Herald was probably the most interesting thing I've heard a Selectman say in years. I find it amazing that we can vote for the President of the USA with absentee ballots but we can't for town meetings? I missed the Spring Town meeting due to a...
Dear Editor: With Town Meeting approaching, talk around Town has again begun to question the institution of Town Meeting itself. Town Meeting is Groton's legislature. Money matters, changes in regulations and bylaws, changes in zoning, and other such matters are deliberated upon by Town Meeting....
Dear Editor: I am truly baffled with The Groton Herald editorial asking us to support our town. Flip flopping on issues that will have a negative affect on our town is something I can't support. This 18,750 sf central fire station at the estimated cost of $7.5 million is not about need; it's about...
Dear Editor: I count myself among the couple dozen Groton families who directly or indirectly abut the Rocky Hill Wildlife Sanctuary from all points on the compass. Like they, I marvel at the natural beauty of the flora and fauna that present themselves at our doorsteps. What wonderful acts of...
Dear Editor: I am writing in support of environmental Articles 5, 6, 7, 9, 17 and 18 because I believe that their passage will benefit present and future townspeople. Articles 5, 6 and 7 support the sewering of the Lost Lake Area; Article 9 supports the Conservation Commission's request for funds...
To the Editor: It makes you wonder what could have possibly happened to cause the Herald to scuttle every argument against the monstrous fire station about to be built on the town's most beautiful hayfield two weeks before an election. Special interest groups appear to be alive and well in Groton!...

Dear Editor, I would like to relate a story about a most unpleasant experience that I had with the Groton Conservation Commission. I obtained a permit to build a retaining wall on my property. I filled out all the appropriate applications and paid the $58 fee. The application included drawing a...
Dear Editor: Saturday I took a friend horseback riding. We started at my house on Long Hill Rd. and meandered up Indian Hill behind John Crow Farm. As we went higher and higher the mountains came into view. What a picturesque sight before me. I felt as though I was riding in the Rockies. A sense of...
