Dear Editor: I'm confused.  The headline of the March 4 edition of  GrotonHerald.com states, "Selectmen Ignore Will of Town Meeting by Not Continuing Personnel Board."  Please correct me if I am wrong, but does anyone need to read the remainder of the article?  Isn't the headline enough to make...
Dear Editor, On Friday, March 1, we welcomed a few hundred smiling faces to Richardson-Mees Performing Arts Center at Lawrence Academy for our fifth annual FOODraiser for Loaves & Fishes, featuring top Boston street performers The Jim Show, Alakazam The Human Knot, and surprise guest Daniel...
Dear Editor, The town may have governed itself for 350 years by town meeting, but it has only had a zero quorum for a few years and all prior major infrastructure investments have been debt excluded and submitted to the ballot for final authorization. The public service building, library...
Dear Editor: Walk with me for a moment, and follow a simple trail of logic.   Let's turn back the calendar to 2003. Back then we felt that we were over-run with guns, and over-run with gun violence. No real difference, past and present. Back then the NRA's solution to gun violence was more guns in...

Dear Editor: I worked myself through Brooks Lyman's Letter to the Editor of Feb. 15 in an effort to find a smidgen of sympathy for the victims of our gun culture. You know, the families of the 26 victims in Newtown, CT; the families in Aurora, CO who lost members to a shooting in a movie theater...
Dear Editor: The Groton-Dunstable Athletic Booster Club will begin its 2013 Phonathon on Monday evening, March 4. The Phonathon, the major fundraiser of the year for the Booster Club, will run for a three-week period, with calls being made by our student-athletes each weeknight, Monday through...
Dear Editor: Cassius: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves....", Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar", Act I, Scene II. Although I am a sitting member on the Groton Town Meeting Review Study Committee, this Letter is being written, with genuine regret, as the opinion of a...
