Most likely started when someone (possibly) thru a cigarette out their window...so, maybe carRead More manufacturers should start putting ashtrays back in cars?! Also, all the fallen dead trees from Sandy are still littering the the wooded areas and I'm sure that that most likely contributed to the fuel for the fire.

Not exactly Pulitzer Prize winning journalism there. You're doing Patch readers a great disservice.

Kudos and major THANKS to all the fire fighters and other first responders, EMS, police and dispatchRead More for the masterful job they did with what they had on their hands today with multiple fires going on simultaneously. God Bless them all. It takes special people to go running in when everyone else is running away.

Pssst Brian, this is a Haddonfield patch. I would say a lot of us live "Minutes fromRead More Camden". But your situation is different since you "Duck and dodge bullets" like you were Hillary Clinton back in Bosnia............Or at least thats what we were supposed to think right? I'd also love to know how many Camden residents actually registered for Obamacare since we already know who's going to end up paying for it. LOL liberals
Brian White April 24, 2014 at 07:12 pm
SO TRUE Gina. It's also no coincidence that 60 Million people voted for Obama yet only 8Read More Million (the Governments number) actually signed up for this disaster. Wheres the rest of these Left Wing minions who think so highly of Obamacare? Odd

I grew up poor. My father never made more than $30k a year raising a family with a wife and 4Read More children. We never went on welfare, never had health insurance and are immigrants who came here as political refugees. My two sisters went on to become a pediatrician and a VP of sales for a fortune 500 company. I went to MIT and have started up two companies that were both acquired. We all attended public schools. Plenty of nights going to bed hungry, never had healthcare and had PLENTY of motivation to work hard and improve our situation. It can be done if there is pressure to want to better yourself and your situation rather than make yourself comfortable at the bottom.

If the homeowner was "lying in wait" then how did he know the teens were about to enter?Read More How did he find out? Had they done this before? Did he know them? Why were they breaking in? What were they up to? Had they done this before? Were they armed? What was in the basement they were so interested in? What was there that he was trying to protect? I don't think I'd be asking many questions if someone uninvited was wandering through my house at odd hours. You could say he should have just held them at bay, but then, how did he know how armed or dangerous they were?

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.

The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.
Bob West April 24, 2014 at 06:20 pm
@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.

I am a whole hearted support of the United States Supreme Court and my 1st amendment right to sayRead More what I said because I support Cheif Justice Robert, But he and his group is dangerouslly Silly. Inner City Education where the teachers promoted a theory if I get one child to college after 13 years I have done my job the educational system in this country was built to make you a servent not a thinker. In a class of 30 that teacher and teachers focus on just one. I believe if he/she focus on 29 being able to read and write do math, understood science, then she did her job and still had work to do one was left behind. But let thanks President Reagan for giving us the Preppy look.

Clyde Z April 23, 2014 at 07:59 am
her hiring was a joke, I mean they said they did a background check: must not have used GoogleRead More search because they've listed her troubles before her hire at Rutgers. Not to mention that she "lied" on her application. I've had co-workers fired after a month, months and in another case years after their hire due to lies on their application. Hermann's lies could/should have been cought by simple 10th grade investigation
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

"Agreements or addenda" are not part of the Common Core. Again, if states are doing theirRead More own thing by adding stuff or agreeing to do something different, it isn't Common Core.
Millsey April 24, 2014 at 02:46 pm
If it's on the internet it must be true? A small group of parents make up some "facts" andRead More post it on random news sites. So it must be true?

Madeleine April 24, 2014 at 05:46 pm
Separation of church and state. Period. Even if the supposed "majority" want it in, anyRead More reference to God should not be in a public place (including the Congress, the Supreme Court....virtually the entire government). Eliminating the "under God" part in the Pledge of Allegiance is a start towards an America based on the founding principle: freedom for people to live the way they want to live (as long as he or she does not infringe on the rights of another person). Religion is a private affair, not a public one.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!
