I am writing with concern that the Town of Granby is considering selling the former Kearns School property. With all the recent town real estate approvals for residential housing and apartments, it seems that town officials haven’t given enough thought and foresight to consider the additional families who will be moving to Granby.
A significant portion of the agricultural-innovation funding announced at COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, should be directed toward cultivated-meat development. For those who aren’t familiar with the term, cultivated meat is grown from cells, without slaughter.
As a Granby resident and long-time community volunteer who cares passionately about our town, I am writing to strongly encourage all Drummer readers to vote for Dave Roberts for the Granby Board of Finance in the upcoming election.
I ask the voters in Granby to support Kelly Rome in the upcoming election as she seeks a seat on the Board of Selectmen. A Granby native who knows and understands the town well, she has both solid work experience and a proven track record on the Board of Finance that will serve Granby well in the capacity as a selectman.
The Friends of the Granby Public Library held its 38th Used Book Sale in September after a two year wait due to COVID restrictions last year. It was another successful sale and a welcome return of our patrons who look forward to this annual event.
I was thrilled to learn the U.S. Department of Agriculture is giving $10 million over five years to Tufts University to establish a National Institute for Cellular Agriculture. The institute will conduct open-access research into cultivated meat.
