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!

Steve Ridling, To loose weight, you need to stay within 1200-1800 calories( women 1200-1500, menRead More 1500-1800) and exercise 30-60 minutes atleast 5 days per week. If you are still not loosing weight then consider seeing a dietitian who can closely evaluate your specific calorie needs based on your ht, wt, age, activity level and give you a meal plan more specific to your individual needs. Also some of the outpatient dietitians can measure your basal metabolic rate (it is a measure of calories burned by your body at resting state) to fine tune your daily caloric needs to loose weight.

Do you mean "drivel"? Or are you referring to the photo?

I have to say this is a noble idea, but totally impracticle. The radioactive waste that isRead More burried at the bottom of this landfill, (which was placed there by prior owners and not the current owner of the landfill), is still a long way off from the location of the underground smoldering fire. The problem that none of these good people who are in essence yelling NOT IN MY BACKYARD - are not accepting is that the quantity that would have to be moved in staggering, and just where exactly do they intend to move this to? There is roughly 250,000 cubic yards of trash and radioactive waste in the West Lake site. So you have to come up with a place to put 250,000 cubic yards of hazardous waste - along with whatever material is needed to cover and protect it from spreading. Just exactly where are you going to dump this ecological gem? I am sure any new community is going to yell - NOT IN MY BACKYARD - just as loudly as you are. And you have to take it all, because how do you determine what trash has been contaminated with radiation, and what has not? Just how big a pile is this? 360 ft x 370 ft x 50 ft. or 2 1/4 football fields (including the endzones) stacked 50 ft high. And how many trucks would it take to get this out of the landfill? The largest tandem dump trucks you see on the highways holds up to 20 cubic yards. That would then require 12,500 truck loads - running down your city streets and highways with radioactive waste. Now there is a great idea. So you dig it up, (releasing radioactive dust into the air), and dump it into dump trucks,( you never see any dust or dirt coming out of them), and haul it down busy city streets and highways to some other location,(never an possiblilty of an accident on the highway), and creat a brand new pile of radioactive trash in some other community, (no chance they will protest you dumping your radioactive waste in their community.) I am sorry to say, the best sollution is to cap th is site with concrete, and leave the waste burried. If you are worried about the smoldering fire in the other landfill next to this one, then drill holes down between the two landfills ever 4 feet, and fill them with concrete. Then drill another set of hole between each of these columns, and fill them with concrete. Keep this up until you have a solid wall of concrete between the two landfills.

Mouse races would be another fundraiser. For those of us living in Florissant-Valley of the FlowersRead More is still a big deal and a lot of us still set our chairsout and mark out our spots the night before for the parade which runs for a couple of hours.

Really, toy guns? I grew up an era when we played with toy guns, cap pistols, and Daisy rifles.Read More Did my generation grow up to be violent, I'm 64? No. My best guess is today some people have little respect for life and act on that belief.

Maggi Wulff July 15, 2013 at 10:40 pm
Larry, you are right. My brothers, in the forties, had not just toy guns but carried jackknives inRead More their pockets, to school and everywhere. All the boys did. My oldest brother later spent four years serving his country in the Korean War, my other brother ended up with a PhD and teaching in a Christian college. My two sons played with guns and wore camouflage play suits when they were kids.......both served their country in the service, as well as becoming outstanding citizens as adults afterwards. Fix the cause of violence, not the instrument that can be used for good or evil A belt can be used to hold up your pants or for child abuse, should we trade in our belts????
