Dear Representative/Senator,        We are writing to address the lack of adequate budget support in recent years for the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) which has created a crisis condition in one of the Commonwealth’s most cherished resources: our state parks, trails,...
Friends of the Nashua River Rail Trail (NRRT) have been working on a project that is just completed. The Pleasant Street underpass on the Rail Trail has been a problem spot for years due to darkness and the inability of riders eyes to rapidly re-adjust from daylight to tunnel darkness.      ...
How about renaming Redskin Trail after a local Native American group, a Native American leader or a local Native American landmark, thus honoring local Native American people?   Lois Young
I appreciate Mr. Reimer’s Letter to the Editor in the November 12 issue of the Groton Herald. I welcome challenges to my points of view; they inspire me to clarify my own thinking, and sometimes actually change my ideas. So, thank you, Mr. Reimer.      I don’t, however, agree with your...
I am writing in response to the articles, letters and the editorial recently in the Groton Herald discussing the effect of the re-districting process on the town of Groton.      As some of you may recall, when I was first elected as State Representative for the First Middlesex District in 2010...

I had the misfortune of reading this most recent (Thu, Nov 4) Groton Herald 'editorial' over the weekend. Gaslighting at its finest.      There is a lot I love about the GH. I appreciate that they report the factual science of our environment at the top of the front page of every issue. Good on...
I read with interest Mike Metzger’s letter in last week’s Herald, arguing in favor of the Voting Rights Act. Presumably, he is referring to the House and Senate bills HR1 and S1, known as the For The People Act of 2021.      Mr. Metzger claims that “radical Republicans” oppose the Act in order...
Of course parents should have significant input into school curriculum. But they should not make the final decisions. If that were to be the case, it would become a contest between the most extreme viewpoints. And that is what has been happening recently at local school board meetings – the...
