The law against hand held devices misses the major distracted driver accident contributor - parentsRead More distracted by children in the back seat which cause 5 times the number of accidents that hand held cell phones cause. Curious?

@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.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will be honored for his work to repeal the death penalty. Patch file photo.
Melinda Bedard April 15, 2014 at 05:00 pm
That jackass shouldn't be honored for anything! He has done nothing but make Maryland one of theRead More most taxed states in the nation! We need to bring back the death penalty and go back to the electric chair. Lethal injection is too good for most of the animals that commit heinous crimes! He is an embarrassment for the state of Maryland.

true dat. there is alot of waste in this country, perhaps tis the reason we are trillions of dollarsRead More in the hole!! Our Founding Fathers would be rolling in their graves if they knew what is going on in our country, going right down the shitter......

How broke are we you ask? Well we are 17trillion $ broke. Is that a lot of money? Well lets see. AllRead More single family homes combined in this country are worth about 16Trillion $. If none of us had a mortgage and everyone sold their home and gave the money to the gvmt we would still be broke. That's effin broke.

Hey John Rithouse, if you don't like it, then don't come here for news. Guys like you make this sameRead More annoying comment every day. Are you mentally slow?
rubberband April 15, 2014 at 01:28 pm
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 April 15, 2014 at 09:47 pm
OK, let me take a wild guess here...This is Massachusetts so it shouldn't be that difficult toRead More figure it out. These two crack heads in their 40's are on SSI, claiming some phony disability and are living on SSI in a Section 8 apartment in a senior complex. Probably a good guess right? They put senior citizens in grave danger and will probably get a slap on the wrist and sent right back to live in the elderly housing... just a guess of course but probably pretty accurate. Either that or they are living in an apartment with one of their parents and are not on the lease but yet still live there...only in MA!
Geoff Burton April 15, 2014 at 10:40 pm
Kathleen I don't get the Massachusetts reference, having said that I think your about right.
century April 15, 2014 at 11:30 pm
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.

I really do wish he would stay retired and give the young guys a chance. He's had his day in theRead More sun. Time to sit back and enjoy the up- and- comers.

Who cares ?
Steven Spiegel April 15, 2014 at 10:31 pm
What does Mike retiring have a thing to do with the young up and comers having a chance ? They haveRead More a chance to swim against him and beat him if they train hard enough !!!!!! That is why its a competition . I believe retirement at 30 is absurd . They pay those guys to much if they can retire at age 30.

I left my convertible top down once. Went inside to pay for the gas and when I returned there was aRead More blob of bubble gum on the floor. I would have put my foot on it and made a real mess if I had not seen it. I had noticed a dad showing his son how to pump gas when I went in and I had noticed the kid chewing something. Morons!!!!!
Dennis Gilpin April 15, 2014 at 05:33 pm
Many women pull up to get gas and leave their purse on the front seat when they are paying for theRead More gas or getting cigarettes. Easy pickings for the thieves to reach in the car and take it. In spring, many people don't use their heat or air conditioning and just leave their windows down. Thieves are very aware of this.

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!

M L Goins April 15, 2014 at 11:16 am
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....
