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.

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!

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.

John Chrusciel April 14, 2014 at 02:21 pm
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.

Joan, if your concern is the Judiciary, then you could identify the judiciary, so that more peopleRead More know who this is. Something can be done, but not until you or someone is willing to ID the "perp". Hopefully someone will take some action besides posting this on Patch, where nothing really can happen to an unidentified criminal of the justice system. No real help for the animals either.

If you have it on film you can show the judge. Like it or not, I'd think the judge's job would be at stake for not taking some action. Thanks for sticking your neck out.

OK - I agree - there should be no difference in treating anyone due to the color of his skin, hisRead More religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation except where that characteristic is relevant to the issue (if you are discussing whether a person is susceptible to a certain disease and the race of the person is relevant [sickle cell for example] as the racial group is or is not more or less susceptible to that particular disease). I don't go so far as putting any of these persons to sleep but all of them need to get a nice long stretch behind bars. If nothing else to keep them away from ordinary citizens. I accept that there are those who do make those differences significant in ways that are discriminatory and prejudicial - I guess my take is that it cuts both ways and it's not just whites who harbor prejudice. I think that prejudice is a common characteristic of mankind in general and we demean ourselves by trying to isolate one group over another as being the most prejudiced. Peace.
