Letters to the Editor - Millerton News - 7-11-19

Well said, Ron Murphy

Congratulations to Ron Murphy on his “A Thank You — Not” letter. He has expressed what many of us in Millerton have been thinking. 

It’s disgraceful that bog turtles are more important than a whole community having a decent grocery store. There is sufficient wetland where bog turtles will relocate themselves. I wonder if a study was done in that regard at the site of the Lakeville-Sharon Transfer Station that is being built not far from where a Hannaford store was anticipated a few years ago. I can’t believe that the bog turtles are aware of state lines in that area. 

Perhaps, we’ll get lucky and some resourceful person or company will find a way to bring a grocery store to Millerton in the not too distant future. I surely would like to see it in my lifetime.  One can only hope!!
