I would really like to find out why the horse got scared. There was another instance in another cityRead More when a driver of a vehicle deliberately scared the horse with a truck horn right next to the poor horse. Not once but several times.

Forward.... April 16, 2014 at 02:57 pm
Mr. Aaron has lived through this vituperate before and it was only because he did the best job heRead More could in beating Babe Ruth's record. So for that he was called horrible names. He stated his opinion, which is fact based but America is not able to face honesty or have that conversation about race. They rather continue to act out with name calling. For centuries, African Americans have been deemed as lazy, stupid, inferior yet when one reaches the level of accomplishments as Mr. Aaron or Mr. Obama, they are still only just a n-word! Not given the respect or appreciation other within their own circles. So if what he says makes you uncomfortable, imagine how uncomfortable it is to live it!

Aaron brought this on himself. He himself is full of racism. In an interview with USA Today priorRead More to his day at the Braves game, he compared the GOP to the KKK. He couldn't be further from the truth and just confirmed he has joined the cry racism crowd. I lost all respect for this person.

"We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, butRead More when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he's treated. We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go" ........... I am bewildered that Mr Aaron chose this path and used the worn out political excuses and apathy for President Obama. As a black woman I am shaking my head in disbelief. Silence is golden.

Some parents will do just about anything to get on a reality show. Blame the networks for thisRead More charade and that is what it is. This was all planned....
mimi April 16, 2014 at 03:57 pm
This little boy is very clever to have figured out how to crawl inside the machine. He deservesRead More more attentive parents. I hope they are court ordered to parenting classes. For what it's worth, approximately 30 years ago, I saw a toddler swathed in diapers wander out the front door of his home. The door was wide open. He started walking down the street. I parked my car and gently held him in my arms, looking for a family member to appear. No such luck. The toddler was nonverbal and unafraid. So we walked to the police station across the street. The cops on duty immediately recognized him & thought it was funny. The toddler was a known wanderer and the cops assured me he had a loving family. REALLY? They took him back home and did not write an incident report. It disturbed me then and now that the parents and police were so nonchalant. Child neglect is amusing to some people. I am not one of them.

Natick news - Nebraska news -- well at least they both start with the letter N. I said this before IRead More think everyone should not open any article on their local Patch unless they see the name of their community in it. They are trying to trick up with news. We see a headline and think - in my case - Natick - and it is not. NO NAME - NO CLICK! I think if the click rate goes down for Patch, it will hurt them advertising wise and then maybe they will listen to us that we want LOCAL NEWS! Who wants to join me in my NO NAME No CLICK campaign?

strange how we respond just as the terrorists desire us to. the media commemorates each incident asRead More if it were a new profit center to mine for every last click. whole populations now sit in fear of another 'something' about to happen, never again, fully safe like we were in the good old days of the cold war? once these bstrds hit us deep inside our own turf we have not become stronger, but rather 'hardened', emboldened in our delusions of ultimate superiority, no longer safe on our 'island of north america'. each of these events changes us all even imperceptably, forcing us to accept their motives, their ideals, their imam imposed concept of living. we act in unison, determined to show them we are not affected, yet that very demonstration reveals our inner need to respond, to re-affirm our own injury, each of those crowd-felt sympathies we all cling to, even if for the brief moment of our 'crowd'. be strong, and further, be alert, be conspicuous in manner in which you care for each other. shy not away from those who seek your death, but do not embrace them, as they fein no challenge to seek close to your demise.

It was on Twitter step by step what was happening with photos. There will be more nutbags pullingRead More crap you'll see. I give that police officer credit for stopping him he had his life in his hands. It could have been the real deal. We haven't seen the last of the sicko's yet.
Agranon April 16, 2014 at 04:36 pm
The police in Boston are terribly stupid. They are dumber than most cops and that would make themRead More total morons. And for all you idiots that are going to respond about how much you respect cops because 'not all are bad' or how their job is so hard, really, really? Please think about what you're saying.

Frank, they are trying to get a job. The bulk of them would rather work than depend on the gravyRead More train. Trust me, I've been there.

Uh Frank, not all people on food stamps are welfare people. A lot are disabled and/or elderly. ItRead More does go down hill from there. Mainly the whole as long as you stay pregnant rule for illegal immigrants. Ect..

Sandy Murphey April 16, 2014 at 02:10 pm
The best part about all of this is that because there's always "OPPORTUNITY IN CRISIS",Read More this "problem" created more business for this little hydro shop. I love that the women gardeners showed so much support, and online orders increased so much, that he had to hire more people!! YEAH! The DEA helped, but I do feel sorry for those who are punished for using God's gift of nature, and a weed at that!

Stupid dumb worthless pigs.

This war on MJ began with Nixon and then Regan escalated it when he declared a War on Drugs. A warRead More we have been loosing and will continue to loose with the tactics our corrupt Government continues to use. Such as the one for Heroin. Since they can't beat it they decide to join it by becoming the LEGAL dealers. SO it is illegal to use heroin and you must stop taking that drug and switch over to the Government approved drug of Methadone. Ever see or hear of anyone getting off Methadone once they start. Well only if they are paying for it out of pocket and then can't afford it. Then the clinic does what they call an Administrative wean!!! Because after all if the dealer isn't getting paid you are not getting the drug!!! Now isn't that the way it is with any street dealer??? SO that is how the Government is handing the Heroin crisis in this country!!! Way to go pharmaceutical companies (Cooperate drug kingpins)_ SO now the question comes about medical Marijuana and the Federal Government does not want this because the big cooperate pharmaceutical companies have not devised a way in which they can have total control over this substance and financially rape every living soul in this county that would want it or need it. And so until this happens the Federal Governement will continue to fight against Marijuana being removed from the Class 1 drug list. Oh BTW just a little side note to all of you who continue t believe that you are living in the United States of America. You are not, we have become the Incorporated states of America. No longer a country where our government is one run by the people, of the people, or for the people!!!
Mike April 16, 2014 at 01:00 pm
Reading the various posts here I am struck at the hatred we now have for one another. I believe weRead More are more divided now that at any time in our history with the exception of the Civil War. Obama is a huge success. He has managed to divide our people as no one else has in modern history. A shame that so many have stopped thinking for themselves and instead follow the masses and the political propaganda.
Stu Pidasso April 16, 2014 at 01:49 pm
Mike- there is no hate here. actually a pathetic situation when one feels he is "owed"Read More something rather than earning it by working for it. Why not move down to the inner city and live there for 6 months, then get back to us!! it should be a real eye opener for you!! I work 6-7 days a week to enjoy what I have, even though i have little time to do so, I'm not complaining, but it bothers me that i am penalized by the way of extra taxes, fee's , etc., to help those who have no intention of trying to help themselves.. I have TWO children, NOT 5, 6, or 7 simply because I cannot afford it, and would NOT EXPECT the government to take care of them for me!!!

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.
