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...
There is a vacancy on the Earth Removal Storm Water Advisory Committee for a Member At Large. The vacancy is an opportunity for a Groton resident to volunteer for a Town Committee.      Our Committee meets once a month and has met virtually during the pandemic. A time commitment of 1-2 hours...
Most Americans would prefer not to live under a government whose sole purpose was to maintain the wealth of its richest citizens, but that is exactly the sort of government today’s radical Republican leadership is working for. The best way for these plutocratic oligarchists to achieve their end...
There are two wonderful new holiday happenings in town! Thanks to support from the Groton Business Association, Rollstone Bank and NOA Gallery, we are introducing Groton Lights, an effort to bring some smiles and much-needed joy to Groton residents and the thousands of people who drive by every day...

Harrington stated, "I may not be invited to as many Eagle Scout Ceremonies or 100th birthdays, but mostly everything else remain the same.” Actually, no. Everything does not remain the same. The voices of Groton voters will be...

Thank you for your coverage of the discussion of how our Police Department and the Communities for Restorative Justice handled recent racist and homophobic acts. Thanks to Chief Luth and his officers for all the efforts to curb these ignorant acts.      I think publication of the apology...
GELD Tried, I Tried, Yet the FloRo School Building Committee has failed us and the Earth.      Why would anyone build a new, huge, 50-year building today that is heated by natural gas and cooled by mechanical “chillers” that use “F” gases which are incredibly potent green house gases? We all...
When walking on the Groton Trails, there are signs at the beginnings telling dog owners to pick up their dogs' poop. A lot of the same walking trails are used by horses and their owners. BUT, horse poop is much LARGER than dog poop and there's no sign that their owners have to pick up their poop...
