My own personal thoughts and feelings are, I would rather hear or read weekly about a moonshine still
than weekly updates on the death of the Groton Inn.
Which is the worst crime.....?

They say most bottled water is just "run of the mill" tap water.

Nothing "run of the mill" about that tap water.

Sounds like some top notch rheumatiz medicine.

Funny how this became old news so quickly! The Town Manager trumped the water works guy big time!

Kudos to Lowell MA for knowing how to deal with a Water Dept. Chief.(Lowell Sun 3/21/12) They fined the dud $5,000 for breach of ethics in using city property at his house and for hiring subordinates to do work for him. Bernie Lynch is a strong City Manager.

What does groton have for a Town Manager? One who "allows" Groton's Chief water Tech. to retire after his trangressions. And he gets his pension, health insurance. Oh, I wonder if he got to keep his still?

Ha! That's funny. TM - same guy who oversees the PD who let two officers go for lying during an investigation. But what? HUH? He lied during his investigation, too? And guess what...still here. Doing who knows what....chances are he's up to no good. Look at how Stratford was left. Poor Groton!

How can you stand on stage at Town Meeting in April and not feel the glaring eyes and angry thoughts of the residents? Gotta be a tough-skinned guy that TM.
