Dear Editor: Groton Lakes Association (GLA) is asking for $95,000 to treat Lost Lake/Knops Pond with an herbicide as the first part of a comprehensive Resource Management Plan (RMP) to restore and maintain the quality of this 204-acre natural resource. The threat to the health, safety and...
Dear Editor: On Saturday Jan. 26, our town will be asked to fund the demolition, abutment stabilization and replacement of Fitch's Bridge. Well over 250 years ago, this bridge was originally built to facilitate foot, equestrian, wagon and stagecoach traffic across Nashua River just south of the...
Dear Editor: On Jan. 26, at Special Town Meeting, an amendment to Article 3, Construction Funding for New Center Fire Station, will be proposed by this voter to exclude the debt and require ballot approval for the Article. An argument will be made based on pages 52 and 53 of the proposed budget...
Dear Editor: Mr. Rule Loving was kind enough to provide Selectmen and me with a copy of his Letter to the Editor that appears in this week's paper. It is his intent to propose an amendment to Article 3 at the Jan. 26 Special Town Meeting to require the debt service associated with the new Center...

Dear Editor: The NRA is an unusual organization. After their efforts of the past 10, 20, or 30 years, and now that the public at large is well armed, the NRA is telling us we need armed security to protect us and our children from what they have accomplished. Whether you own a gun or not, I want...
Dear Editor: Not quite sure where to start after reading last week's editorial about backing into an 'unintended funding trap' other than to hope it was not the intention of the editor to pit the legitimate needs of the town against the equally legitimate needs of our regional school district....
Dear Editor On Jan. 26 we will have a Special Town Meeting to review a number of Articles, including one that will begin creation of a Lost Lake Sewer District. It is important for residents to understand that this initiative is absolutely not an effort to advance, in any way, construction of...
Dear Editor, I would like to encourage residents of the Lost Lake area, especially residents who own lakefront property to file property tax abatements for 2012. Lost Lake residents pay an extreme amount of taxes to the town and hardly get any town services for their tax dollars. Many lakefront...
