Editor: Last July the news that Mass Com- posting Group [MCGI] was seeking to create a massive landfill in an old gravel pit adjacent to the Nashua river at 161 Nashua Road in Pepperell went public. Shortly after the news broke, signs appeared in Pepperell, Groton and surrounding communi- ties...

These ceramic bowls were 300 to 400 years old. But what made them special was that somewhere along the way they had broken...
We write in opposition to the “End of Life Options Act, H1926/S1208.      Much has been said in opposition to Legislation that would facilitate euthanasia:  palliative care reduces the suffering sometimes associated with dying; suicide leaves the survivors with lifelong burdens such as guilt,...
