It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

I'm surprised they wouldn't give me my dog to me after surgery. I knew that there was no staff onRead More and I wanted to take her to an all night emergency after surgery so she could be monitored for the night. I fought with them to get my dog I hit traffic and when I reached them it already closed that B Cindy was at the desk. I asked if my dog made it through surgery and she acted dumb. You don't know me? Yes you do! She got to be kidding me. I don't know you or your dog you need to call the vet tomorrow. I asked is my dog alive, just say yes or no. She refused to tell me. All night I thought my dog was dead. When my husband p/u the dog he got meds the same meds that were administered two days before and were no longer needed. They refused to take them back and charged me a restocking fee after a 1200 bill. Really? I own five dogs and a cat my new vet is very happy to see them! A Cornel graduate is the only vet my dog sees! The nickname for this hospital "Kill your own animal hospital". They are known to bill for everything, you will not come out with either a shot, ear meds, shampoos anything to drive your bill up! Awful place. I will say, Doc L is very knowledgeable with no people skills. So sorry that really sucks! I don't think if Doc L was on it would have happened. He is very compassionate to animals. I just didn't like the staff.

When choosing colleges for you're kids do you wean out the biggest party schools in the country ?Read More For me the answer is definitly yes . Hoftra a great school and a greater commuter school .But like I said in my previous post its a party school for those who choose to party it is so easy . Sadly the facts show most freshman today to be immature and not capable of making rational decisions . Peer pressure comes into play and also the free feeling of being away from home . My desicion to not allow my kids to apply to Hofstra , were the stories they knew about from other kids and verifying pictures on Facebook . Agreed they will party , but most freshman's over consume and pay no attention to academics . No two are alike , for my older daughter academics is a prioty , she is graduating from Adelphi early , because she choose to work . Soon will be applying to graduate school . My youngest immature and non focused is finishing 2 years at Nassau and was excepted into 11 colleges ... Our choice came down to a beautiful Smaller University in New Orleans ... If you would have asked me 2 years ago to send her out of state I would have said no way . She was not ready . Today I say go and be careful of your choices . Not a guarantee .But you can bet we fought when I said no to out of state schools two years ago . Thank you Mommy came much later with her own growth . Nixed were the known party schools and good choices were made .I hope she continues . I had experienced much to my shock , the parents that choose to let their kids drink , starting in 9th grade , the endless parties they threw put me on the outs with them as the last Mom standing alone . In both my kids graduating classes I first hand saw a lot get thrown out for academic failure , but saw all their party posts online . Granted a parent really does not have access to grades in college we are left in the dark you have to take your kids word on that .Others sucessfully made it thru Freshman year , partying hardy . Some did not party and their academic acheivemnets well excel others .Choices both my kids have fast cars and tracking devices , yes I can see how fast they go and where they go . It does not mean they won't make bad choices , I was the party queen in college from my own mouth , I should have and could have made better choices . I parented both my kids through HS on chemo , you can bet there were nights I all but crawled to my car to find them and or pick them up from bad choices they made or could have . Mom come get me ! One of the best things I could have said to them " No matter how bad it is call me I will help you " What it really comes down to is this we can wean out , safety net , steer them in all directions but have no guarantee . But for the Grace of God go I , that is what my best friends father whispered in my ear when he overdosed in college . He came from a great home , had all the support and love a child could have . He made awful choices . I would never ever want to walk the path of the The Wynn family ... My heart goes out to them . Conner's life is gone there is no back tracking , no rectifying , no saving him . That is the sad part to die at such a young age is more then a heart could bare . His poor parents , how do we go on after such a finality ? I don't ever want to know . So Hi spy Mom is always lurking , and if I have to go out of state and make surprise visits I shall ... Keep your eyes on their road ! As best as you can . We can't blame anyone for a sad ending to a short life . We all have our own ... But for the grace of God go I and mine . It just makes me so sad for this family and young man . And yes Joanne there are just some schools in some places I would never send my kids , would you send yours into hell ? It's not a good beginning without a good foundation .We can start there . And it can be the safest place and the best school and still we have no warranty .

scallop scum: I’m not Catholic, and I do like an occasional beer. But I will no longer orderRead More Heineken or Guinness.Even before the Catholic League’s Bill Donohue called for a boycott of the beers that boycotted the St. Patrick’s Day parade, I decided to withhold my patronage from the panderers. The parade is meant to honor St. Patrick. Gays are welcome at the parade; they just aren’t allowed to advertise themselves as such with banners and flags. There are multiple gay pride parades where they can do that. The corporate brains behind Heineken and Guinness pulled their sponsorship saying they support inclusiveness and diversity. But, in fact, they are supporting homogeneity — they want every parade to be like every other parade — and every parade should have gay groups. Jim Johnson NYPOST 3/18/14

Guess what, climate change is a better, more accurate term than the debunked global warmingRead More nonsense. It's occured thousands of times in the Earth's history. Both sides on this issue can agree on that, can't they? But, IMO humans didn't cause it directly, and cannot alter or stop it. The most critical negative human impact here is simple: too many people! Most of the Third World has NO access to birth control, and the vaunted UN doesn't seem to care. Even China relaxed it's stringent one-child-per-couple policy. Helping people limit their numbers might mitigate this problem. But I refuse to agree w/the Leftists Dems that we are some how to blame. Also, scientists who believe this theory make their paychecks off of scaring citizens, so they're incapable of being neutral.
