Sad state of affairs

I am astounded by the Groton Town Council's antagonism to providing protection for environmentally significant properties.

The Groton Open Space Association requested that the council approve a Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection grant to be used to supplement GOSA-raised funds in purchasing three contiguous parcels of the Tilcon property. The state will not release a grant without town endorsement.

The council voted a big no to GOSA's request. The council wants no more protected open space. The council wants development and a greater grand list, but its approach lacks the necessary balance to support progress. It is a sad state of affairs.

I see the first daffodils.
The first 65 degree day.
The return of the sounds of chirping birds.
My first day back on the golf course.
The first sunset later than 7 p.m.
