Dear Editor,    As the town considers the benefits and drawbacks of maintaining the Prescott School, it seems that many people are focused on the immediate, one-time repair bill. This is completely understandable, considering the financial situation of the town. But I think we need to look at this...
To the Editor:    The Groton Public Library is being re-carpeted for two-three weeks starting Monday, April 29. The extended timeframe is because of the need to remove and temporarily store all the books and materials before the shelving can be taken down. After the new carpet is installed, the...
To the Editor:    Not every Letter to the Editor can be responded to...but the recent letter by Janet Landry Shea (April 12) requires a response because it put forth so many inaccuracies about the Prescott School that should these statements not be corrected, the public would be seriously...
Dear Citizens of Groton:     I would like to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Select Board. I am humbled to have served you as your Selectman for over 12 years. A lot of accomplishments have been achieved since I was first elected. There have been many successes along this curvy country...
To The Editor,    I am concerned about the possibility of a ticket tax on Indian Hill events. I think this is very short sighted and would set a dangerous precedent. We need to have a vision of Groton in time to come. I understand that school events would be excluded and they should be. But what...

To The Editor,     I must take exception to Jack Petropoulos’s March 28, 2019 Letter to the Editor (LTE) of the Groton Herald and subsequent post on Talk About Groton.     I feel bad for Select Board Member Becky Pine. She made a mistake at the March 18, 2019 Select Board Meeting and apologized for...
To the Editor:    For at least the last five years, the taxpayers of Groton have been told that multi-year overrides are coming. Maybe even overrides every year going forward. One would think that faced with this possibility, that every public dollar spent would be duly scrutinized as to whether...
Dear Editor, Many thanks to all those who turned out for the ‘Celebrate The Center’ event held at the Groton Inn this past Saturday evening.  We had a full house and a wonderful program which highlighted the on-going construction of the building as well as a look at what the new center will look...

Chimney fire on April 1 brought out firefighters and new ladder truck to this Main Street home. 

To The Editor,    My wife and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Chief McCurdy and the other crew members of the Groton Fire Department for extinguishing a chimney fire at our house on Main Street Monday afternoon (4/1). We had been heating with wood only and were working down our...
