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!

"I agree the use of the word celebrity is overused by members of the media but belittling herRead More accomplishments isn't befitting of someone who has achieved personal success. The girl isn't a Khardashian, Hilton or member of the Orange County, Long Island, Atlanta, Beverly Hills Wives Club or" _________________________________________________ So wait, it is OK to belittle a Khardashian[sic] or a Hilton, because they are not reality based in some sense of the word?

......I'm speechless lol
Jeff April 9, 2014 at 05:42 pm
It's not that a Kardashian or Hilton aren't reality-based celebrities . They are and I have noRead More tolerance for them personally. They are like dinosaur leeches that grab a hold on our societies lowest common denominator and will not let go. We have become a voyeur society and these families are the Queens of that society. It's degrading and putting our morals on a slippery slope. Personally the use of the word celebrity has less than stellar qualities in today's world than it did yesterday I just hate when someone is called a celebrity because of the sex tape or some other lack of talent or because they have money or are a child of someone of significant note. These bottom feeders and I know that's an unkind statement but these folks are useless examples of what we should not strive for in society and wind up being voyeurs instead . This Type of celebrity appears on supermarket tabloid covers , new stories and is really not worthy of even a mention if you actually looked at what they can accomplish however the damage they're doing to our society and to young women and men everywhere is reprehensible and the press just buys right into it. It's a rant against the loose moral fiber invading out media and lives. The real celebrities and heroes we should look up to are still there but we have a different judgment call today those folks aren't stylish there not splashy or glitzy they don't embarrass themselves they strive to make this world at better place , we tend not to reward that kind of behavior and it's really a shame

I would consider going somewhere other than loreal for beauty/sunscreen products. After a backlashRead More on their animal testing procedures in the '80's they quit testing on animals but instead outsourced that testing. It took them until last year to stop that outsourcing but they still have a disclaimer that they 'may' test under certain circumstances. Do you really trust their sneaky policies? Also steer clear of any face wash products that contain polyethylene. Those contain the plastic microbeads that are placticizing our oceans.

I strongly suggest looking into what you are putting on your skin before just slathering somethingRead More that says SPF whatever. Your skin is like a mouth and will drink whatever you put on it. Most popular brands have a higher risk of being unhealthy to your body compared to the sun. http://www.ewg.org/2013sunscreen/ is a great place to look. I use kinesys.

Some long range forecasts are indeed predicting a series of "Pineapple Express" storms inRead More March. Whether you believe they are being enhanced or engineered as "drought breakers" by a government operation (as I do) it underscores the efficiency and power of the hydrologic cycle. It is something we need to protect and pass on to future generations in California.

Advantages of a normal climate/hydrologic cycle include: Incredible power. Capable of deliveringRead More thousands or millions of tons of snow to Sierra Nevada in a single storm. And it's all SOLAR POWERED. Hydroelectric power in California from snowmelt trumps all the damn solar panels on every rooftop. And please, UCLA Institute for "Sustainability" please do your homework and crunch some numbers BEFORE making further recommendations about drinking water from my toilet or backyard rainbarrel!

@Donna, straying slightly from the topic, the answer to your question is: ownership and money.Read More Privately owned land cannot (will not) be directly taken from a developer. This is bad business for the city. The new trend is for cities to arbitrate an agreement to set aside acreage as green space. With the new developments, the cities gain an increase in the tax basis. Either way, the end result is that both parties profit.

They have loads of these wildlife overpasses in Canada and they work great. The animals mostly stayRead More off the roads, which also keeps drivers safe as well. I'd rather they spend $10 mil on something that works, like this, as opposed to say, $10 mil on fixing potholes that are never actually fixed.
Penny Arévalo (Editor) February 12, 2014 at 08:52 pm
You were right, Jon. The writer of the press release acknowledged the wording was unclear. She meantRead More $10 mil for the tunnel. The overpass would probably cost more. Thanks for the nudge!

I live in Glendale, near Griffith Park. There are several bridges over the Golden State freeway forRead More wild life. I can't believe that these would be more expensive than tunnels.
