September 11th, 2016

Opinion-icon-for-website[1]

To the Editor: With the current drought reaching historic levels, and having devastating impacts on our ground water supplies, people and businesses still watering their lawns in our towns have to re-consider their actions, regardless of whether they maintain their own wells or utilize municipal water.  Regardless of the source, nearly a quarter of Massachusetts […]

Letter to the editor: Remember to help birds during drought conditions

September 11th, 2016

Opinion-icon-for-website[1]

To the Editor: A request on behalf of the birds and other animals. The present drought has dried up some water sources for the wildlife and killed off insects and plants that provide liquid and nutrition for them. It is easy to put out fresh water every day. And to continue bird feeding to keep them alive. They benefit […]

Letter to the editor: Not allowing film maker to shoot in Westborough is ‘parochial’

September 11th, 2016

Opinion-icon-for-website[1]

To the Editor: As a 27- year resident of the town of Westborough I have to say that I found the response by the police chief and several of the selectmen to a film maker who wanted to shoot a movie scene in the downtown, embarrassingly parochial.  The remarks of a few officials reduced the […]

Letter to the editor: A stormy night in Westborough

August 7th, 2016

Opinion-icon-for-website[1]

To the Editor: It’s called a “micro burst” when the sudden storm hit at 8:24 p.m. [July 22] and we lost electricity here. Even the emergency lights didn’t work so I was grateful for my flashlight even though it was flickering. I was safe in my bed just listening and talking with God and letting […]

To the Editor: Thanks to Rev. Lynne Dolan for leading, and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense for organizing, a beautiful peace vigil to mark the second annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day on June 2 at Shrewsbury’s First Congregational Church. The moment that struck me the deepest was how many in the suburban crowd […]

I am writing to bring to light an urgent need for our award-winning Marine Corps JROTC program at Assabet Valley Technical High School in Marlborough.

Letter to editor: Shrewsbury bag ban is anti-business

May 25th, 2016

The Shrewsbury town meeting members who voted with glee for Article 13 to ban traditional plastic bags should be ashamed they were led like lemmings to impose one of the worst anti-business by-laws in the history of the town by progressives with a personal agenda. Next they will seek to ban all plastic bags, plastic water and juice bottles, and once they make the town The People’s Republic of Shrewsbury, like Cambridge and Concord, they’ll likely push for Sanctuary Status.
