As many are probably aware, a bipartisan bill known as the Sunshine Protection Act recently passed the Senate by unanimous consent. The bill, which makes daylight savings time permanent, purports somehow to create more hours of sunlight while eliminating the tedious practice of changing the...
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's strategy for the 2022 Congressional campaign seems to be not to offer any positive programs, but rather to attack virtually everything President Biden does. Fair enough, I guess. Disappointing, but a tactic used with some success by both parties in the...
To the Readers of the Groton Herald,      As President and co-founder of Flooid Power Systems, Inc., I’m writing to address people’s understandable skepticism about Flooid Power. Though there were some noteworthy technical and other inaccuracies in the recent Groton Herald article, leading in...
As long as we are entering into a debate again over the Town Seal, let me offer the following suggestion: We should make this a program for all children and adults who wish to participate. A year long contest for anyone who wishes to, they could draw and present what they would like to see as our...

Are you in favor of adding one million dollars to the cost of building the track affiliated with the new construction of the ele- mentary school? At Town Meeting, on April 30, there will be a Community Preservation Act (CPA) article proposing to add $1,000.000 to the bond to fund the reconstruction...
I grew up in a household that “didn’t see color.” Interestingly, at a gathering in that household, I recall once hearing from a guest, “What am I, black?” when this person realized that he/she would be getting the pot roast last.      I grew up in a predominantly white town, a bit like Groton....
We can argue all day as to which party is more racist than the other with little hope of persuading. However, most will agree that the fundamental civil rights issue of our day is giving disadvantaged children an education that will allow them to succeed and the understanding that they can...
