Tie and Win End Regular Season for Boys Soccer

Visiting Groton-Dunstable and Westford Academy battled to a scoreless tie in this a non-league soccer game.

Crusaders controlled much of the game, outshooting the Ghosts 9-6 but were never able to put one past keeper Sam Brewer. Westford gave up size but played a determined defensive game, clearing any ball that could result in a Crusader scoring opportunity.

Students in GDRSD Earn High Marks

Students at all grade levels in Groton Dunstable Regional School District continue to score significantly above the state average on MCAS Tests administered in 2012. According to information presented to the School Committee at their Oct. 10 meeting, approximately 80 percent of all students at the elementary, middle school and high school level scored "proficient or advanced" on MCAS test in 2012. This compares to 60 percent of students statewide who scored proficient or advanced.

Crusaders Cage Tigers, Beat Littleton 47-13 in Mid-Wach Inter-divisional Game

Groton-Dunstable and Littleton came into this meeting with identical 6-1 records and you had to expect a more even contest.

Thoughts from a Lake Dweller on Groton's Fall Town Meeting

Dear Editor:

I am a resident of Lost Lake and I have been lax in attending Groton's town meetings. Moving forward, though, that will not be the case as Monday night's meeting was quite the eye opener.

Time to VOTE!

To the Editor:

A long time ago, my father told me there were no guarantees in life (other than death and taxes, of course). And, with time, I've come to agree with that sage observation, with one exception. Hurricane Sandy did a real number on our ability to complete the work called for by the articles in our 2012 Fall Town Meeting warrant, but the weather this coming Saturday morning, Nov. 3 appears guaranteed to give us that opportunity.

Of Hurricanes and Presidents

Dear Editor,

 I don't know about the rest of the town, but I got through Hurricane Sandy with no problems except a little water in the basement, which happens every large rainstorm anyway. GELD seems to have done a good job of making sure the power lines were as hurricane-proof as possible, and for me, at least (Townsend Road) they won the battle. Thanks!
