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 am a Christian and have accepted Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God as my Lord andRead More Saviour. Some of you posting must not have actually heard what Pastor John Hagee said. What he said was, that when other blood moons ocurred that something significant ocurred regarding the Jews, the blood moon of 1492 and the expulsion edict to remove all Jews from Spain, the 1948 blood moon Israel became a nation, the 1967 blood moon and the six day war resulting in some Israeli land being reclaimed. Pastor Hagee said NOTHING about the end of the world ocurring to coincide with the four blood moons ( he did however say people would say he did - which looking at these posts some have misconstrued his words). Perhaps all the posters that are commenting on what Pastor Hagee said should actually hear what he said PRIOR to commenting/mocking/judging. Pastor Hagee and his statements. Perhaps, in time, we will see if the government of Israel has made a significant decision today. Personally (my very own personal opinion- no Biblical prophecy just me), I hope they decide NOT to ever release any more terrorists from prison to bribe the palestinians to "talk" about making a peace agreement.....just saying....

mnadol April 13, 2014 at 11:39 am
I was on this last cruise - it was disgusting. They should have taken the ship out of service onRead More Ap[ril 5 and done a full sterilization of the ship. There were passengers doing back to back cruises and they could merely stay on the ship while it was being "deep cleaned". Fortunately we did not get sick but the crew stood around with buckets of "cleaner" fluid and wiped down elevators and surfaces every 15 minutes without drying them, leaving wet sticky surfaces everywhere. You won't find me on Grandeur again. The virus has no price tag - all of the ships are susceptible if they aren't managed carefully.

The only problem we encountered was on the way home... we had up to 35 foot waves and 50 mph winds! People were falling, dishes were crashing. There were a lot of people that were seasick.

Please remember Mr. Kamenetz come election time. He is a man of huge political ambition and so farRead More has not represented any living thing in his district. As he so eloquently stated at those who were unhappy at the groundbreaking for the new elementary school in Mays Chapel, "It's my job to talk. It's your job to listen." Vote this guy out of office NOW or he will be your governor one day.

Interesting comments. We have a dog park in Carroll County. I don't know if our county governmentRead More contributed to its creation, but I don't think so. The one acre park is located on property owned (I believe) by Random House. Any Carroll County resident is welcome to join. All joining fees go towards upkeep and improvements to the park. Volunteers worked very hard to bring this park into being. All I do know is that the park is very nice, everyone cooperates in cleaning up their dog's messes and disposing of it properly. Bags and receptacles are provided. We don't have a water fountain, but park users bring water and fill bowls that are present. There is a storage box inside the fenced area where emergency supplies are kept. Our dog park was much needed! Many communities have strict leash laws. My own community doesn't even allow us to fence our back yards. I love going to the dog park with my pibble and watching him frolic and play off leash with other dogs. Sitting on a bench with other owners and chatting. Enjoying the weather. I'm glad this crummy winter is over and I can turn my dog loose and let him work off some of his high energy again! I give a huge thank you to all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly to make this happen. We won't allow our dog park to go to the dogs (lol) either.

So called "juveniles" are sexual beings, just as much as so called "adults".Read More Their newly awakened hormones conflict with their still immature values, and such things as sexting and pregnancy are the result. Do the schools help them to resolve the problem? No, they are mainly concerned with readin', writin' and 'rithmatic, not morals, values and logic. The parents have only as much of these as they have learned from their parents or through experience, and many haven't learned much.

Call me a pervert but maybe we should learn from them and not be so uptight about our bodies. SureRead More we can say it's morals...but is it really something to be ashamed of?

Hi Mary, The thought was that people may see other stories of interest in the list while scrollingRead More to ones they wanted to read from the headline. I can see where you are coming from, though, and will change accordingly. Thanks for the feedback!

I am so glad this place exists!!!! If only we could have about 19 more of these in Baltimore SO manyRead More many many needs could be met. Think of all of the futures that could be changed. This has to be the 1st time I've seen anything other than the old, "they turned 18 let them fend for themselves" attitude around here probably Ever. And OBVIOUSLY that has never worked well before so why keep with it? People need guidance & hope for the future & the ability to actually do something with said futures & when they don't...that's when you get the average young person running around in the lower income areas of Bmore.

White Marsh post office is wonderful. I refuse to go to the Perry Hall Post office. 2 of the womenRead More in there need to have an attitude adjustment or a daily dose of Prozac . They are nasty and grumpy with every one. They should take lessons from White Marsh.
Grace B. April 3, 2014 at 07:59 pm
I agree about the Perry Hall post office. I live 10 minutes from there, but travel out toRead More Kingsville when I need postal services. The staff at the Perry Hall post office has changed over the years, but they've all been a little "strange" and very rude. As far as the White Marsh post office, on Ebenezer Rd, I went in there once when I was in the area. The place was empty. The clerk never got off of her cell phone throughout the entire transaction. I had to interrupt her personal phone call, to explain what I needed. She never uttered ONE WORD to me. I can't imagine it's worth the money to keep that little place open.
DT April 3, 2014 at 08:48 pm
I would like to chime in here also. Every time I have come back from the Perry Hall Post Office IRead More would tell my husband about how rude the personnel is in there. I have had the same experiences as others have. I think they just need to replace the employees with others that are nice to the public and have manners. It is very convenient to have that post office close to home.

My post, cont'd: I googled Patch. It is the recipient of some awards. I noticed a change awhileRead More ago, which may be when the Patch was sold earlier this year. We stopped having a local editor and local stories. Here is a link to some history of Patch: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/16/business/media/aol-finds-a-partner-to-run-its-troubled-patch-division.html?_r=0 I don't want to see lurid headlines of non-local stories.
