While Groton avoided most of the damage caused by Hurricane Ida, we appear to have experienced a microburst that caused some minor damage to trees and foliage across from the entrance to The Groton Cemetery. If you’re out for a walk, jog, bike or drive, take a look at the corner of Blossom Lane...
In response to Groton’s Diversity Task Force’s recommendation that the Library Trustees reconsider the charging of overdue fines for late library materials in light of the American Library’s Association’s “Resolution on Monetary Library Fines as a Form of Social Inequity:”      In recognition...
Let me see if I understand this correctly: in order to reduce Indian Hill Music's legal exposure, motorists turning left onto Main Street will in perpetuity be exposed to a traffic hazard?      For most of the 40-plus years I have lived in Groton, I have avoided taking Old Ayer Road if I am...
It is impossible sometimes to get onto Main Street from Old Ayer Road after 3 p.m. The only saving grace is if a car from Littleton has stopped to make a left onto Old Ayer Road stopping traffic behind it, one can then enter Main Street (D on map).      By making a bypass lane (A on map) it...

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...
Well, not really over CRT? CRT is a college level academic study of systemic racism in the U.S. system of justice. It isn't designed or intended for use in elementary and secondary school programs.      However, some people have seized on it as a label for studying the role and treatment of...
I would like to send a huge thank you to Matt Pisani of 68 Pleasant St. in Groton! My daughter Kelly and I were riding our bikes on the Nashua River Rail Trail behind Matt's house on Monday morning, 8/2/21 when I hit a giant pothole, lost control and crashed my bike. Matt saw this and immediately...
