The Huey is lowered into place on the plaza.

While the sound of the whop whop whop of a Huey's far off blades always meant help or trouble toRead More every one who heard them? That sound always made me stop to discern if I was hearing automatic heavy weapon fire. To this very day that sound gets my attention day or night awake or asleep.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning

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!

You guys need to read up on genetically modified food. There are two types. One type creates itsRead More own insecticide so that the bugs that eat it, die. We also eat it, and there is a chance that the DNA can leave the food and enter our digestive tract, and become part of out DNA. The other huge group are the plants that have been modified so that Roundup won’t kill them. They cover the field with Roundup to kill all the weeds, and we eat crops that are full of Roundup. My mother used to spray that stuff on weeds, and for days afterwards, she couldn’t remember the word she was looking for. They are freaking killing us with the food supply. I think the vaccine thing was debunked, but I am willing to accept that maybe they shouldn’t be given a bunch at a time. It is truly terrifying to be a parent today - there are new germs that are resistant to antibiotics - not only MRSA, but a new one with beta lactam in the name. These can kill infants. They may be the end of women putting children in daycare. It hasn’t happened yet, but it is probably inevitable.

It's over diagnosed. That's why.
The northbound travel lanes on the Route 1&9 Pulaski Skyway will be closed for approximately 24 months while the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) rehabilitates the bridge deck.
Linda Maloney April 13, 2014 at 10:09 am
It's about time they started to make repairs on the Pulaski Skyway, it's been literally fallingRead More apart for years! I heard there is even some controversy with the Port of Authority paying for much of this renovation. It is an access road to the Holland Tunnel, but The Port of Authority isn't responsible for The Holland Tunnel roadways because The Holland Tunnel was there before The POA. I guess the gov. and his people do whatever they want with his own little slush fund(POA).
Marlboro Mann April 13, 2014 at 08:50 pm
Lets hear it for the NJDOT. They could have started the work on Christmas, Palm Sunday, or AshRead More wednesday, but they chose instead to begin the chaos on the first day of Passover thus ensuring that the large percentage of Jewish workers arrive late at work but most importantly arrive home long after the sedars are to begin. Anti Semitism? NO Piss Poor Planning? Yes!

Patch, you're selling out. Let this family figure out their junk without gawkers. You can do betterRead More than this - this is NOT news, it's sensationalism.
MissElanyS April 17, 2014 at 08:49 am
@triptakers, what do you expect from the Patch? They are no longer reporting news and have fired allRead More of their professional staff and hired people off the street with no experience or journalism training whatsoever. Even the National Inquirer has more experience on their writing staff than the Patch. What you are reading here is bird cage liner.

It is a terrible thing to do to your family, the engineer and the emergency people who have to cleanRead More up. At 18 it's awful to contemplate the sadness. I hope he finds peace. It's know that engineers suffer from these events, often for years. PTSD among cops and emergency responders is often a result of seeing these things none of us in the civilian world will ever confront.
Michele M. April 10, 2014 at 02:14 pm
Oh dear. So young too. I was on a train with a tresspasser fatality October 2012 around the sameRead More area. Horrible.
ER April 10, 2014 at 01:10 am
@ OE Defending him or merely telling you of my experience in attending 2 Town Halls? My ownRead More experience is that although like others here, I disagree on some political points, I found him surprisingly accessible. After one of the events, he actually chatted with THE PEOPLE afterward in the parking lot, and although I'm a nobody, even I was afforded an opportunity to have a brief exchange with him out there, about an issue I was concerned about. This article in no way resembled my own experience at either of the events I've attended. Just sayin....
ER April 10, 2014 at 01:16 am
p.s. One of the reasons he stayed to chat with THE PEOPLE outside the venue, was that theRead More attendance was so beyond what they had expected, many folks did not get into the building and he felt bad they had come to the event and the place wasn't big enough to hold them all.

genesko, my heart goes out to you. I've done most of this on my own. Until someone actually has aRead More child with a disability, they will never truly understand. I can respect that. Had my son not had the stroke, and the severity of the Autism did not subside, I don't know how I would of made it. CHOP Neurological never could explain how the severity subsided. Just Luck. A trade off if you will. My Son drives, yes, but sometimes his emotions overwhelm him. He has learned how to recognize that, and he knows to call me first. But the Joys are great. He can read other's clues for social interaction, and he is always improving there. But again, a lot of work at home was required. I know depending on the severity of the situation, it may never improve. Regarding the group homes, you are right. 20 year waiting list. I'm reminded of my Late Dad's best friend who's oldest son is Autistic. He is now about 57, living in a home. He was lucky. His parents were very upper middle class. They were able to afford what was needed and was able to see to it. Unfortunately today, many of us cannot earn the incomes of our parents with the health benefits that they had. The best advice I can give you, which I am certain that you know, is to keep your children close. Raise them to appreciate and love each other. So as we go to the great beyond, we may hope our disabled children will still be loved and looked after by their siblings. A burden their brother's and sisters never asked for. But a love and appreciation of life and for life, that perhaps most in our country today seem to lack.

What is even more scandalous is the 6.6 MILLION DOLLARS NEWARK is getting for AFFORDABLE HOUSINGRead More taken from the US funds to help Sandy victims. The Newark Post articles declared Newark damage to residences was MINIMAL with NO RESIDENTS LOSING POWER for any significant amount of time. This is the REAL scandal!What is our new STATE SENATOR FROM NEWARK doing about this theft of Sandy funds?????

Belmar did a spectacular job with Sandy recovery. I am from another local town. Let's give BelmarRead More mayor free pass this time. I have crossed paths with our *** Governor before he was elected....He is not a nice man...he his a bully...and his silence recently might be a blessing...shame on all who re elected him...and thank the stars maybe just maybe he has hurt himself enough to keep him out of Washington, one can only hope!
