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!

Dons Wife & AR...I guess this will be an appropriate intermission break for me...LOL...IRead More Listened to Dons wife's song link and it is a beautiful song and I listened to AR's song link for the first time and I believe it deals with the inner self’s searching for meaning, but maybe I’m wrong and I’m sure I will hear it from AR …LOL. We know there is a place to debate anything under the sun .I tried to keep my views within current events and activities regarding the NYS Safe Act. I believe in God and also believe in reason and science.

I consider Suzanne a beautiful song of love and search for redemption. Extraordinary that such aRead More prolific author, poet, composer, performer could suffer from depression and work through, as one discovers in his works. I think the lyrics, like much of his writings, is layered with meaning, allows the reader to find his/her own personal hook. I love the Jesus references, to me more profoundly eloquent than anything I've read of him in bibles and elsewhere. Yet I interpret the passages a person's search for meaning to life and finding such in the present as opposed to a wishful afterlife. The "perfect body" reference strikes me as very Buddhist. In may of his works, the stories turn to love and the women who "cared" for him, often unselfishly, with a reoccurring comfort in sexuality. The depth has gone much further, in my view, as he aged, often rewriting. He's in his late 70s and still tours, sells out 20,000 seat arenas to an audience that spans at least six decades. I think his "The Partisan" is the consummate anti-war lyrics. Harrison also found comfort and meaning in Buddhism.

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

to Issy: Quote: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come toRead More destroy, but to fulfill............Mathew 5.17" ------------------------------------------------------------------- Jesus IS the fulfillment of prophecy. As the Messiah, he ordained a NEW COVENANT. Those who claim that the Old Testament dictates are wholly applicable to Christians simply haven't read the NEW Testament critically. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Issy: You didn't read the whole argument. Continue Matthew 5. The new covenant (which actually began with Jeremiah 31:31) is BETTER than the written Law. Jesus begins at Matthew 5:21 each remark with "You have learned that our forefathers were told" and then he goes on to state what the Law says and then what HE says. The Law says you can divorce your wife. Jesus says you can't. The Law says don't commit adultery. Jesus says don't even look on a woman with a lustful eye lest you commit adultery with her in your heart. The Law says you must be brought to judgment for murder. Jesus says you must be brought to judgment even if you nurse anger against your brother. Jesus says: You have learned that they were told: Love your neighbor, hate your enemy, but what I tell you is this: Love your enemies and pray for your persecutors, only so can you be children of your heavenly Father who makes his sun rise on good and bad alike. You took your remark right out of a context that completely invalidated it. Thanks for making my job so easy.

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.

Christopher Wendt February 18, 2014 at 07:18 am
My issue and interest is not the specific find in Reynolds Channel, but the fact that radioactiveRead More Cesium, a man-made isotope, is in the LI environment, having gotten there by a succession of man-made events, including weapons testing, nuclear plant accidents, and the Upton BNL incident mentioned above. Radiation and its effects are cumulative. My point is that perhaps the cumulative effects of decades of radioactive contamination, even at undetectable levels, may have played a contributing role in the incidence of cancer, here. To that point, while nuclear plant explosions or melt-downs present clear and present dangers, locally, the quiet, longer lasting and lingering effects of radiation releases into the atmosphere should also be feared for their potential to inflict damage for many years into the future, over vast areas of our planet.

@BP mom re: "For a super who's only been here a year, he's not making responsible, educatedRead More decisions if you ask me!" I assure you the Super's decisions are both reasonable and educated; they just don't agree with the Group Think of you and the other moms you talked to. You termed his decision yesterday a "very bad decision"; what were the actual results that proved "very bad"? There were none. ....................................................................................................... The Superintendent, in consultation with the Board of Education makes decisions about opening, closing, or delaying school in the face of inclement weather. They are authorized to do that. You, as a parent, make decisions about your own children. In my opinion, which does not count in this at all, is that your decision to keep your kids home was probably the worse of the two decisions made in reaction to yesterday's storm. But those are your kids and you are their mom. They missed a day of school but they stayed home safe and warm. I am sure you know that life is not all safe, and toasty warm; your kids will eventually learn that as well, just not yet.
BP mom February 16, 2014 at 09:37 pm
I wish I was such an analytical genius as you Christopher, thank you for dissecting my comments soRead More we can all have a clear picture. You can add some facts: at the time we were expected to drive our kids to school, because our district does NOT provide buses, snow was falling at a rate of 1" per 20 minutes with golf ball sized snowflakes, to quote the newsman on channel 12, and we could barely see across the street. Plus our street was nowhere to be found under the 8-10" of snow because the plows couldn't keep up. Doesn't sound very responsible and educated to me to expected children and staff to come out in that and our governor agrees as he declared a state of emergency. But again thank you for helping clarify my comment with your expertise as I'm sure you not only live and was present in blue point during the storm but you are a meteorologist also!
Christopher Wendt February 17, 2014 at 08:21 am
Yours was a personal decision for the safety of your own children. Many people across the state wereRead More confronted with that decision this month. Some, like yourself, opted to keep their kids home. Others sent or brought their kids to school, some came later, etc. Those districts that opted not to close were roundly criticized by those parents who kept their kids home, which is understandable. Many parents who took their kids to school also criticized the decision makers. Such is the nature of these things. As Governor Cuomo said to Mayor De Blasio who was being blasted for keeping The City schools open, "That's life. Welcome the The Job!"
