Regarding the Mass. State proposal to override towns' ability to opt out of State wide aerial Pesticide spraying for Mosquito control to mitigate risk of EEE: Please vote against the proposal. (See story, Page One, June 26 issue) The insecticides used are toxic to bees and fish, but said to be...
Somehow we have come to describe Groton's BLM march as attended by “more than 300” people. That number has shown up in print a number of times (including the last issue of the GH) and has entered the local lexicon.      It’s not that it isn’t true, there were more than 300, however, the reality...
By this letter, I report to you the publication of a hateful article with the ungainly title, “A Modest Proposal to Strike a Blow Against White Privilege and the Patriarchy in Groton, Massachusetts.” It was originally published under the cowardly moniker of Anonymous, on June 27. It appeared on...
I am old enough to remember the civil rights movement in the 60s and the shock and horror of reading about church burnings that reaction from racists brought forth. So, to read that a website in our community titled Rotten in Groton published an editorial that among other things called for the...
I was awoken on Father's Day morning with a call from my husband to run down to the Groton Country Club to see the hateful graffiti targeted at African Americans.      I took photos and spent time with a few others looking at the graffiti with disgust. This isn't the first time this has...

To whomever felt the need to spit out fear, hatred, judgment, and anger, I reach out to you to say you have my sympathy. You must have a great deal of unresolved feelings. You must feel superior to those who think and feel differently from you. Maybe you have friends or family who have tried to...
I rarely write letters to the editor, but after reading the recent letters claiming that our town is "elitist" for owning a country club, I felt the need to speak up.      If you have ever golfed at the Groton Country Club, as I have, it is apparent that it is by no means exclusive. It is a...
The Groton Interfaith Council is both disturbed and saddened by the graffiti tagged around Groton last night.      These hateful acts of vandalism reveal how necessary it is for the Interreligious Community and all people of good will to work together in the cause of justice. An attack on any...
Ed Note: The following open letter was sent to the Town Water Department by a resident. The Water Department responded to the questions asked in the letter with illuminating responses.   Dear Town Water Department,      I have questions related to the town's recent restrictions on water...
