Ken is a wonderful person. I have gotten to know him through the Grafton Land Trust and Community Harvest Project. I know there are many brave firefighters out there, but Ken surely deserves recognition for his bravery and dedication. View Comment
When the new library head says gaming, I think she is talking about board games and some card games like Magic the gathering. There has been a resurgence of board and card games in the past few years. What used to be the interest of Sci-Fi geeks has started to hit the mainstream. These games are very popular at the Science Fiction/Fantasy conventions and can be quite challenging and fun. View Comment
Hey, we actually don't do fried food. I will admit we have lots of made from scratch cookies, pies, tarts and sweet breads, but the other selections include tomato basil soup, butternut squash soup, pulled pork BBQ, chili, and hotdogs. Nothing fried at all. View Comment
Just a point of clarification, Paul Scarlet is a member of both the Grafton Historic Commission and the Grafton Historic District Commission. The amendment he presented at Town Meeting last night was discussed at last weeks Grafton Historic Commission meeting and crafted by members of the Grafton Historic Commission.
The Grafton Historic Commission is charged with overseeing the Historic character of the entire town and, as such, thought it was within our purview to offer the amendment.
Grafton Historic District Commission was formed to specifically oversee and maintain the Historic character of the area around the Grafton Common.

I finally have time after the holidays to read this thread again. By your logic, because I have never had any children in the Grafton Public Schools and never will, I should not have voted for the new schools to be built. I support education, the schools, our police and firemen because it is for the public good. In the past people supported institutions not because they were going to use them, but because they existed for the use of all citizens and the public good. View Comment
Ok, just a note here. I use our library all the time. Occasionally I get books from CWMARS, but 90% of the time, I get a book from our library in the center of town. I run into plenty of people in the stacks looking for books to read as well. You may get your books via CWMARS, or maybe you never use the library at all, it isn't clear, but plenty of people in this town borrow books from our town library. Don't discount us. View Comment
