In the December 17th edition of this newspaper a letter to the editor defends resitance to vaccination based on the writer’s opinion vaccination against Covid is ineffectual. He argues that since protection wanes, it is ineffective. But the fact is that boosters make them highly effective,...
  Pete Steeves article "Hiking/Healing" in the December 17th issue of The Groton Herald prompted me to send in this photo of my husband, Bennett Black, next to one of our town’s Groton / Dunstable bound stones. We tried to count how many there are from an old 1847 town map but gave up - there...
We would like to thank everyone who aided my father, Frank Scimemi, in the months before his death. He enjoyed talking to and visiting with the Groton Police Department, Groton Fire Department and the Groton EMT workers whenever they came to assist him. We would also like to thank the fire...
The letter posted by Paul Fitzgerald (10 Dec 2021) about the requirement for Town Employees to get vaccinated, I found it to be distressful and uninformed. In the letter Mr Fitzgerald invokes the catch phrase of “GMO food” as a comparison to pharmaceutical. This I argue is nothing short of scare...
If science is our gospel, the continuing bullying of unvaccinated Americans to get tested, get vaccinated, wear a mask, and avoid social events is completely unjustified. When the vaccines were introduced, we were told they would significantly prevent further cases, hospitalizations, and deaths,...
  Dear Groton, Thank you for coming out in droves to support our first ever Winter Festival and Artisan Fair! This event was the culmination of a fantastic collaboration of ideas and energy from the Friends of Prescott, Periwinkle Art & Glassworks, NOA Gallery and The Groton Inn. It was...

In the latest State reporting on COVID by community, Groton had a positivity rate of 3.86. In contrast, Cambridge and Newton had positivity rates of .43 and 1.09. I find it interesting that two cities of around 100,000 people each have their positivity rates so far below a community of 11,000?...
Gov. Charlie Baker has decided not to run for a third term, with his second-in-command, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito also bowing out of a run for governor in 2022.      According to UMass Lowell’s John Cluverius, the decisions are “stunning and disruptive.”      Professor Cluverius said, “It’s hard...
Ed Note: West Concord 5 & 10 was a long-time occasional advertiser in the Groton Herald.   After 85 years in three different locations on Commonwealth Avenue, the West Concord 5 & 10 closed its doors on December 31, 2020. This was not an easy decision, and it came with a lot of...
