I grew up in an Evangelical Christian family. They were open, kind, caring people who strived and succeeded at living their Christian ideals. But for all their faith, they often had a fierce fear of the future.      My gentle, meek grandmother, who taught piano, questioned why I would bring a...
Republican political leaders are calling for national unity. I have a few suggestions as to what they could do to help bring it about.      First, they might acknowledge that the election that made Biden President was conducted fairly and honestly. Especially those legislators who voted to...
The Groton Herald’s page one article of January 15, 2021 reporting on the eviction of a 69-year-old, wheel-chair bound man, is a sad, sick, and disgusting reminder of Groton’s white privilege stereotype. What has happened to the small town atmosphere where we help our neighbors in need first? The...
An anonymous reflection on life In Groton.   Last evening, I took my seven-year-old granddaughter to Surrenden Farms an hour after sunset, with binoculars she got for Christmas and an old set that I have. We stood out in the field. It was freezing, but this sky, the southwestern sky, was –...
Local government should clarify the responsibilities of Ben Zimmer, just appointed as the Stormwater Utility person for the town. We have all paid the town's fee for this position which was mandated by the state. We deserve to know the details of what he will do for us.   Judy Adams Groton
We will never forget 9/11, the day the planes hit the World Trade Center New York City. Etched in our minds forever with the thought how could this happen in our country?      Sadly, once again on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 our television viewing was interrupted with “breaking news...

To say this year was going to be a challenging one for non-profit groups is an understatement and we feared that this would include the Community Children’s Fund.      However, starting with the anonymous donation of turkeys and the donation of homemade pies from the GDRHS Football Team for...
I am writing to express deep concerns about the 28-unit 'Village at Shepley Hill' subdivision that was recently filed with the Planning Board. Having been involved with development and conservation in Groton for more than 40 years, I will say that, if approved, this would be the most...
Few things could bring this town more comfort than recognizing someone so young as Joshua Vollmar to be so well-versed in history, and so eloquent in its delivery. I wish for him a very long life, for which the Town of Groton will be immeasurably indebted. His youth, however, belies an innocence...
