Well gee officer, I was throwing out some old stinky boxes my wife had in our garage and the nextRead More thing you know......

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!

Rather than sadly remember the victims of violent crime, why don't we ANGRILY remember those thugsRead More that did it and have yet to be punished?

No, we're supposed to feel sorry for them 'cos their mama didn't hug them enough when they were aRead More child.

I drive through this interchange often, and it is indeed a mad-house getting through there with theRead More traffic. Hopefully this new construction will help smooth out the flow of traffic a bit.
Steven Kippel April 4, 2014 at 07:51 am
It seems like they just did this interchange. Perhaps finishing the Portola bridge would alleviateRead More some of the congestion.

$7 million? That's borrowed money friend. Bankers ALWAYS there to make sure we go into debt moreRead More and more. It would cost a miniscule fraction of money just to pay a few people to stand at appropriate places (properly protected) and guide the traffic. A SMALL FRACTION of $7 million. It does NOT bother me one bit to go there - I see NO need to borrow that money. So tell me, are YOU happy about having more and more debt that in the long run is ruining our entire country? Banks, corporations, the Bar and attorneys and attorney judges, politicians.....we let them run our country and we are headed for the cliff.

Marilyn & I landed in PS at virtually the exact same time. If I'm wise, I'll leave with her asRead More well. I suspect if the city of Palm Springs is wise, they'll commission another sculpture of her. This art-piece has become a much needed icon in a city missing it's own rich history. But true to form, I see no outcry from city residents. And they wonder...

Marilyn needs to be in Palm Springs (2nd choice: Time Square, NYC). I spoke to the fellow who isRead More actually driving Marilyn to Trenton, NJ. He told me that the statute of "The Kiss" by the USS Midway in San Diego was purchased from the same owner for $1.5 million. Price may have gone up, but there is certainly more then enough wealth in the Coachella Valley to put together the funds to buy Marilyn. While there at it, how about putting together a fund to provide free transportation for the Marines from 29 Palms who are killing themselves on HWY 62 driving to Palm Springs for liberty. Semper Fi and Anchors Away.

Still it would be a good idea to seriously consider whether you have done everything practical to beRead More prepared. Having just taken the CERT Training I understand most people haven't taken necessary steps to safeguard themselves and their families.

If it came to that it would be rare to find a dog.

My friends in Beaumont felt the quake and I think its because they are on bad ground. Being on topRead More of an big aquifer that ground can cave in. I know people on the hill above didn't feel a thing for they are on solid rock up there. Anyone ever wonder about the risk of the ground falling in on top of that basin?
beaumontdave March 31, 2014 at 12:16 pm
Robbie, I read that a high water table can lead to liquefaction, but Beaumont's isn't high and mostRead More of the soil is more clay than sand, so the city's probably on good ground, but wedged between two active faults with a lot of smaller "cracks". When my friends lived at Orchard and Beaumont Ave, I happened to look at a USGS map, and saw a fault line going through their rental home, made them nervous as hell. lf I was buying or leasing I'd look at the USGS maps.

One of the reasons I moved here (10 years ago), was to get away from drifting snow. Now, I've gotRead More drifting sand instead.

@Alex Bloated pensions of our teachers?! Teachers pay for their own pensions. The school districtRead More doesn't contribute a single dime to any teacher's pension. Unlike the city, county and state workers, they get their money matched. For every dime they contribute to their pensions, the state, county or city matches that dime. What would be nice would be to have the district pay for supplies so the teachers don't have to shell out the money. I understand that extra curricular activities cost money but that is something you choose to participate in. I would love to see the parent's reaction to having to provide construction paper, writing paper, glue sticks, scissors, paint, tape, staples, etc. to their child's education. I know that was just a few of things I had to provide for my students each and every year.

"Teachers pay for their own pensions. The school district doesn't contribute a single dime toRead More any teacher's pension." Not so Sarah. Teacher's contribute 8%, school districts contribute 8.25% and the State kicks in 5%. That's according to CALSTRS which is the State's teacher pension system ( http://www.calstrs.com/general-information/plan-funding-faqs) and a recent OC Register article here: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/state-602273-percent-districts.html. of course, if CALSTRS can't address it's $70 billion unfunded liability, taxpayers have to pick up that tab also.
