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!

Dons Wife & AR...I guess this will be an appropriate intermission break for me...LOL...IRead More Listened to Dons wife's song link and it is a beautiful song and I listened to AR's song link for the first time and I believe it deals with the inner self’s searching for meaning, but maybe I’m wrong and I’m sure I will hear it from AR …LOL. We know there is a place to debate anything under the sun .I tried to keep my views within current events and activities regarding the NYS Safe Act. I believe in God and also believe in reason and science. I’m providing a song link that shows another way of looking at the inner self and the meaning of life, but I know it’s not the only way….. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBVAoc5uzEM.......

I consider Suzanne a beautiful song of love and search for redemption. Extraordinary that such aRead More prolific author, poet, composer, performer could suffer from depression and work through, as one discovers in his works. I think the lyrics, like much of his writings, is layered with meaning, allows the reader to find his/her own personal hook. I love the Jesus references, to me more profoundly eloquent than anything I've read of him in bibles and elsewhere. Yet I interpret the passages a person's search for meaning to life and finding such in the present as opposed to a wishful afterlife. The "perfect body" reference strikes me as very Buddhist. In may of his works, the stories turn to love and the women who "cared" for him, often unselfishly, with a reoccurring comfort in sexuality. The depth has gone much further, in my view, as he aged, often rewriting. He's in his late 70s and still tours, sells out 20,000 seat arenas to an audience that spans at least six decades. I think his "The Partisan" is the consummate anti-war lyrics. Harrison also found comfort and meaning in Buddhism.

Guess what, climate change is a better, more accurate term than the debunked global warmingRead More nonsense. It's occured thousands of times in the Earth's history. Both sides on this issue can agree on that, can't they? But, IMO humans didn't cause it directly, and cannot alter or stop it. The most critical negative human impact here is simple: too many people! Most of the Third World has NO access to birth control, and the vaunted UN doesn't seem to care. Even China relaxed it's stringent one-child-per-couple policy. Helping people limit their numbers might mitigate this problem. But I refuse to agree w/the Leftists Dems that we are some how to blame. Also, scientists who believe this theory make their paychecks off of scaring citizens, so they're incapable of being neutral.

@BP mom re: "For a super who's only been here a year, he's not making responsible, educatedRead More decisions if you ask me!" I assure you the Super's decisions are both reasonable and educated; they just don't agree with the Group Think of you and the other moms you talked to. You termed his decision yesterday a "very bad decision"; what were the actual results that proved "very bad"? There were none. ....................................................................................................... The Superintendent, in consultation with the Board of Education makes decisions about opening, closing, or delaying school in the face of inclement weather. They are authorized to do that. You, as a parent, make decisions about your own children. In my opinion, which does not count in this at all, is that your decision to keep your kids home was probably the worse of the two decisions made in reaction to yesterday's storm. But those are your kids and you are their mom. They missed a day of school but they stayed home safe and warm. I am sure you know that life is not all safe, and toasty warm; your kids will eventually learn that as well, just not yet.
BP mom February 16, 2014 at 09:37 pm
I wish I was such an analytical genius as you Christopher, thank you for dissecting my comments soRead More we can all have a clear picture. You can add some facts: at the time we were expected to drive our kids to school, because our district does NOT provide buses, snow was falling at a rate of 1" per 20 minutes with golf ball sized snowflakes, to quote the newsman on channel 12, and we could barely see across the street. Plus our street was nowhere to be found under the 8-10" of snow because the plows couldn't keep up. Doesn't sound very responsible and educated to me to expected children and staff to come out in that and our governor agrees as he declared a state of emergency. But again thank you for helping clarify my comment with your expertise as I'm sure you not only live and was present in blue point during the storm but you are a meteorologist also!
Christopher Wendt February 17, 2014 at 08:21 am
Yours was a personal decision for the safety of your own children. Many people across the state wereRead More confronted with that decision this month. Some, like yourself, opted to keep their kids home. Others sent or brought their kids to school, some came later, etc. Those districts that opted not to close were roundly criticized by those parents who kept their kids home, which is understandable. Many parents who took their kids to school also criticized the decision makers. Such is the nature of these things. As Governor Cuomo said to Mayor De Blasio who was being blasted for keeping The City schools open, "That's life. Welcome the The Job!"

The town plowed the other side of my street about 18 inches from the curb. My side of the streetRead More they plowed about 3 feet from the curb. In front of several houses, mine included, they plowed about 6.5 to 7 feet from the curb. Both of my cars, and a few others belonging to my neighbors, (although to be fair not everyone), were parked in the driveway, specifically to help with the snow removal efforts. Not only did the drivers remove less snow from the street area directly in front of our houses than every other house, but the plows also dropped off the blocks of ice it had accumulated from every other area they had plowed on the street. I can understand if the plows came directly down the center of the road in order to provide safe passage, but that simply was not the case. I ended up removing “the now blocks of ice” in front of my house, manual no machine, so that my wife can park her car legally and navigate safely into the driveway and inside the house. To add insult to injury, a sander just came down my block. Morons! How about removing the snow first then spreading the sand? You can’t fix stupid!

Granted this winter is snow heavy on us. It doesn't mean we have to lose common sense. To my moronRead More neighbor who insists on throwing the snow back into the street right in front of my driveway, you my friend just don't get it. Mr Spinello welcome to a special place called glen cove as mayor. Now what. You have handed out some high paying positions to people who supported you but really are not qualified to operate elevator let alone DPW. Perhaps you can explain to us why the road leading to Hempstead harbor yacht club is spotless clear of snow all the way to the boat launch area. Yes it was plowed I'm guessing for those few people that like taking their dogs for a playfull romp and walk but yet streets like Yale ,Tulane ,Dartmouth ,seaman, Taft, and so many more residents have to struggle just to get out and go to work or shopping. Perhaps I sound complacent. Trust me I'm not. I'm being realistic. I know snow and winter doesn't last forever but please let's rethink about our neighbors and a better way to clear our roads more efficiently. Thank you

Top Drawer is s a unique Gift Shop as was Hyacinth (many years ago). We dod not need another NailRead More Salon or Restaurant. The Business Assn needs to find a replacement Gift Shop to serve the local community. Day time shoppers will find parking as they have all these years if the Shop is worthy. Time to do due dillegence and find a comperable replacement. Most shop owners are saying the rents are increasing 20% and more - will the increase be worth it in the long run if so many storefronts lie empty and Bell Blvd looks like a bad investment?
