On behalf of the Groton Jewish Community Group I want to thank the following people for being involved in our Christmas Day meals to those in need:      Alia Degen - I could not have done this without her help, Sandy Rose, Carole Greenfield, Ann Rothberg, Leslie Lathrop, Larissa Fagundes, Arnaz...
hen it comes to reporting on the risks associated with covid vaccines, the main- stream media has once again showed their true colors.      On October 27, 2021 the FDA endorsed the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children ages 5-11 years. One of the biggest reasons given for endorsing the vaccine...

With reference to my letter printed in the December 24th issue of the Groton Herald," A Challenge for Hikers.... And Historians", My husband Bennett Black later did find some of the information he was looking for.      Page 89 of Virginia May's book Groton Plantation, published by the Groton...

We would like to thank everyone who aided my father, Frank Scimemi, in the months before his death. He enjoyed talking to and visiting with the Groton Police Department, Groton Fire Department and the Groton EMT workers whenever they came to assist him. We would also like to thank the fire...
The letter posted by Paul Fitzgerald (10 Dec 2021) about the requirement for Town Employees to get vaccinated, I found it to be distressful and uninformed. In the letter Mr Fitzgerald invokes the catch phrase of “GMO food” as a comparison to pharmaceutical. This I argue is nothing short of scare...
If science is our gospel, the continuing bullying of unvaccinated Americans to get tested, get vaccinated, wear a mask, and avoid social events is completely unjustified. When the vaccines were introduced, we were told they would significantly prevent further cases, hospitalizations, and deaths,...
