Calling all who were once members of the Groton League of Women Voters!      The Groton Oral History Committee, which is sponsored by the Historical Society, Groton Neighbors, The Center (formerly the Senior Center), and Friends of Prescott, would like to hear from you all. We would like to be...
With careful observation, you may witness a wonder of nature! Over the next several weeks, baby turtles will be emerging from their underground nests. Turtle eggs are laid 3-5 inches below the soil surface in late May to June. Nesting sites are chosen for their soft soils and abundant warmth....
I’m writing to support Michael LaTerz’ opinion expressed in his letter published in the July 30 edition of our newspaper, but from a different perspective.      Seeing the two versions of the Seal side by side, I am impressed by the clarity of the new design. Removing the words from the book...
It is not enough for the people of Groton to say to our new Diversity Task Force, "Focus on affordable housing and leave the town seal alone," [Letters to the Herald, July 23rd]. Before we come to that end, we need to ask ourselves these five questions: Will I support the addition of an image of...

Matt saw this and immediately...

It is a small but important change the Diversity Task Force recommends. Save for that, the entirety of the Groton town seal remains intact. I have been a member of the Groton Historical Commission for the past ten years (though I speak here only for myself). So, I value the preservation of our...
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a system of thought used by academic historians to analyze the history of America from the perspective of Black or Native American or Asian or Latinx people. It proposes that institutions and legal systems established by white people to enslave and subjugate Black,...
The hazy, gray sky and air quality warnings on the east coast are an urgent reminder that the west is on fire, and more than it naturally should be. As a teenager, it is scary to see this cloud of smoke, knowing that I am already seeing the effects of climate change at home. If carbon pollution...
