lol, this ended well, but really i know kids that age that have climbed on chairs unlocked doors andRead More gone out.. she was in the bathroom.. bb prob opened the door, went across to the place, maybe he has been there before, and got inside thru the prize door, wow this is like a real life "Baby's day out" all these grown ups and no one saw him either cross alone and go in and into the machine!!dang

Do you idiots even read the story or watch the video? ALL of the information is right at yourRead More fingertips and you STILL manage to be uninformed. You people have ZERO leverage to mock the parent in this story. Truly incredible

This is but another Play from Demagogue Cuomo's Theater of the Absurd. He said on January 17, 2014Read More on the radio talk show "The Capital Pressroom": - "Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are and they're the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York because that's not who New Yorkers are." He has already decided "who" New Yorkers are, now he chooses to proclaim how their votes should be counted - if at all. Anti-democratic Cuomo.

So, the bus driver takes the fall for all of these drunken teens? Come on, really? That's the easyRead More arrest. Like I said earlier, what about the parents who funded/provided the booze? Or, the bodegas who sold it? Easy arrest for the cops but I think they/society should dig deeper!

@Kim Johnson. Not that it matters, but you have your facts wrong. President Barack Obama nominatedRead More Leonhart for the position of DEA Administrator on 2/2/2010. The issue here is people should be able to shop at a store without being followed or have the NSA track each word I am typing.

It's not about bad taste in clothing, it's about racism and hate. The flag once represented bothRead More hate and the honor of many southerners, but has long since been co-opted by the KKK and other hate groups. And racism is going full strength these days, and that flag, along with the nazi flag, is a huge symbol of that.
mike.trezza April 16, 2014 at 10:56 am
It's good to have a respectful exchange of viewpoints with thoughtful intelligent people. And I canRead More see your point, Andrew, when you compare this suspension to the one they would have gotten for fighting. Still, I refuse to believe these kids didn't know what they were doing. We can argue back and forth whether the penalty was excessive, but I really don't have a problem with St A's making an example of these kids. This is a Catholic school, and their values should be reflective of an environment of tolerance and acceptance of all races.
David Klopman April 16, 2014 at 11:25 am
LOL @ Andrew regarding bad taste in clothing. The kids were wearing a flag drapped over theirRead More clothing so it wasnt their clothing. If you are that ignorant thinking they werent making a statement then thankfully you arent related to me in any shape or form. Ignorance isnt bliss and your sugar coating this thing implying that a fight is worse than being a racist is just ignorance.

He did not have a "submachine gun", he had an ordinary pistol. (One way you can tell isRead More that there was no mention of an additional federal charge for illegally possessing one. Another way would be to Google Intertec 22, assuming you understand that a machine gun fires more than one round when you pull the trigger, and this one obviously does not.) This is just the media trying to hype up the story by inventing a machine gun where there was none. Isn't it a good enough story that some felon went nutcase with an illegally possessed stolen pistol?

A_M_O_V April 15, 2014 at 09:15 pm
The only thing Mr. Bellone and Mr. Spencer could be proud of is the pioneering aspect of this pieceRead More of legislation. Yes they are the first who sign a legislation that would become a detriment for generations, unless at some point and I hope sooner than later the law would be reversed and possibly incorporate age change for alcohol use to 18. It is about time that government officials will get advice from professionals. We are telling our kids not to drink alcohol and not to smoke at an age in which the urge to do the opposite is so high. The most difficult thing for the government to do is promote education that requires high caliber people with energy and sophistication. No one argues the danger in smoking and excessive drinking but when you make it illegal people would like it more. Focus on education and don’t spend valuable money on enforcing something that definitely won't do any good.

This was out in my neck of the woods. All really great kids, college bound and starting their adultRead More lives. Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.

Kathleen, your right. As for housing, the less number of homeless, the more grant money the city andRead More state receives for housing. It happens all the time in Pennsylvania. Free loaders like the crackheads mentioned in the story is why people who have legimate disabilities are judged as liars and have to fight for their rights.

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!

Decaturette back in the days before collapsible steering shafts it was a bad idea to wear a seatbeltRead More because during a head on collision the steering shaft would act as a spear and run you through. I never wore a seat belt my old MGA or TR3. However, this is no longer a problem because of modern design and engineering. Some people will hem and haw about being t-boned at an intersection and the harm that a three point harness can do. I personally know many people who have had their lives saved by seat belts. I always wear mine. They should afford children the same opportunity to protect themselves. A 25 mile per hour head on collision with another vehicle travelling at 25 miles per hour is like a 50 mile per hour collision. So I do not buy the argument about shorter distances nor do I buy the article about lower driving speeds. What can is cost to have simple lap belts installed in a school bus? Are we that greedy?
Becky April 14, 2014 at 04:03 pm
I think the real reason they don't install them is that it would raise a whole other level ofRead More liability -- like that then they would have to keep the seatbelts in good working order, and maybe enforce that people wear them. Could I sue them because another passenger flew out of their seat and hit me. Etc, etc.
