Dear Editor: We would like to comment on the recent town meeting vote. Of the 7,500 registered voters, only 300 showed up to vote. This, in our opinion, is disgraceful. Some people left before the firehouse article came up. Why? We don't know. 222 voted for the firehouse and 58 voted 'no'. We...
Dear Editor,   When the Founders (mostly Thomas Jefferson) wrote the Declaration of Independence, they made two statements:  The basic principles of existence for a free people, and a list of grievances against the British Government for attempting to abrogate those principles, which they...
Dear Editor, Saturday, Jan. 26, sunrise and the day began at a crisp, but sunny eight degrees. A dusting of snow accented the temperature. Arriving at the Performing Arts Center, I was surprised to see a full complement of shuttle buses dropping off the elderly with their walkers and wheelchairs....
Dear Editor: I and another customer of Donelan's witnessed a very usual event last Saturday evening as we left Donelan's Market at about 7:45 p.m. I was just about to get into my car (as I faced the liquor store across Main St.) when there was the sound of an explosion, breaking of glass/collision...
Dear Editor, As I watched opening ceremonies of the Super Poweroutage Bowl, I was reminded of the resilience of people and our country during times of tragedy. The young voices of the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT choir singing so sweetly, bravely and powerfully to all of us...about...
Dear Editor, The 'easy reach' of guns everywhere has forced us to think about arming ourselves. In truth, it's become an arms race with automatic weapons of mass destruction: our neighbor has guns, we don't trust our neighbor, therefore we need guns.  This is a tight, logical argument. The NRA...
Dear Editor: On behalf of the Groton Lakes Association (GLA) I must thank the citizens of Groton for voting at the Special Town Meeting on Saturday in support of Article 1: Herbicide Treatment for Lost Lake/Kops Pond. I must also thank Mark Haddad for guiding us through the process for pulling the...
Dear Editor: Much of the recent commentary and editorials on funding authorization for the new center fire station seemed to center on the need for a broader plebiscite. This then seemed to break down into those who thought the debt expense should be incurred outside the levy limit and those who...
Dear Editor, I appreciate Paul Iannacci's letter to the editor entitled "Fully Armed Public Cannot Be Trusted". Really, enough is enough with the number of gun-related deaths we have here in the United States. There is a healthy public debate going on in our democracy since the massacre of 20...
Dear Editor: I strongly urge residents to attend the town meeting Saturday, Jan. 26 at 9 a.m. to vote a resounding "NO" to fund the new fire station. Funding the millions of dollars to build this new fire station will cripple the town financially for years to come. We need to use this money to...
