Dear Friends at the Groton Center, I want to thank you all so much for all the comfort, support and words of love and encouragement over this past year. I can not express how much it has meant through this difficult time. The phone calls, letters, cards, emails and text messages were such a...
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...
