There isn't a Wawa within 100 miles of here. So why was this cross-posted on the Moon Patch?

What about the kids that get hurt at the hands of other children, sometimes that abuse is far worstRead More than what any adult does.
tamarya April 16, 2014 at 08:39 am
To me they should work on penalties for crimes committed by kids and bullying before tying our handsRead More more than they already are as parents.
Robert April 16, 2014 at 08:41 am
Now maybe we can pass some laws against constituent abusers. Thank God we only have to put upRead More with corbin for a few more months.

What a disgrace! He should lose his business and pay a hefty fine as well as reparations to theRead More victims. Community service would also do him some good. There's no excuse for betraying any client's trust.

@Kim Johnson. Not that it matters, but you have your facts wrong. President Barack Obama nominatedRead More Leonhart for the position of DEA Administrator on 2/2/2010. The issue here is people should be able to shop at a store without being followed or have the NSA track each word I am typing.

I'll do my shopping in either Lowe's or Wal-Mart's garden centers, at least for now, and only useRead More cash.

Blessings to you Kimberlee, you never give up and you take such joy in the smallest of your son'sRead More accomplishments. You are so inspiring, not just to the parents of autistic children, but to many parents everywhere.
Stu Pidasso April 16, 2014 at 12:54 am
true dat. there is alot of waste in this country, perhaps tis the reason we are trillions of dollarsRead More in the hole!! Our Founding Fathers would be rolling in their graves if they knew what is going on in our country, going right down the shitter......
steve forte April 16, 2014 at 07:40 am
How broke are we you ask? Well we are 17trillion $ broke. Is that a lot of money? Well lets see. AllRead More single family homes combined in this country are worth about 16Trillion $. If none of us had a mortgage and everyone sold their home and gave the money to the gvmt we would still be broke. That's effin broke.

The man bought 25 winning Quinto tickets, but threw them away.
John Child April 15, 2014 at 08:41 am
What's worse? Throwing away the winning ticket? or everybody KNOWING that I threw away the winningRead More ticket? Reminds me of the dumb joke about the old man who went to church every day to pray to win the lottery... after years of constant prayer day in and day out finally a voice came from out of the sky commanding him: "You Gotta Buy A Ticket!!" Or in this case the punch line would be: "Don't Throw Away The Ticket!!"
jessmcginley April 15, 2014 at 10:27 am
My office has a lotto pool going and even when I see that our tickets haven't won, I scan them intoRead More the lotto machine the next day just to be sure. Measure twice, cut once.
Gary April 15, 2014 at 01:52 pm
I could swear I've heard where the lottery awarded the money to someone in the same situationRead More somehow. I suppose that no one disputed their claim at that time.

Hey John Rithouse, if you don't like it, then don't come here for news. Guys like you make this sameRead More annoying comment every day. Are you mentally slow?
rubberband April 15, 2014 at 01:28 pm
This was out in my neck of the woods. All really great kids, college bound and starting their adultRead More lives. Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.

Kathleen April 15, 2014 at 09:47 pm
OK, let me take a wild guess here...This is Massachusetts so it shouldn't be that difficult toRead More figure it out. These two crack heads in their 40's are on SSI, claiming some phony disability and are living on SSI in a Section 8 apartment in a senior complex. Probably a good guess right? They put senior citizens in grave danger and will probably get a slap on the wrist and sent right back to live in the elderly housing... just a guess of course but probably pretty accurate. Either that or they are living in an apartment with one of their parents and are not on the lease but yet still live there...only in MA!
Geoff Burton April 15, 2014 at 10:40 pm
Kathleen I don't get the Massachusetts reference, having said that I think your about right.
century April 15, 2014 at 11:30 pm
Kathleen, your right. As for housing, the less number of homeless, the more grant money the city andRead More state receives for housing. It happens all the time in Pennsylvania. Free loaders like the crackheads mentioned in the story is why people who have legimate disabilities are judged as liars and have to fight for their rights.

All I needed to hear was Republican, he's got my vote!
Mary Stewart April 15, 2014 at 07:11 am
Excellent. I was on a Town Hall call with DeLissio and she stated she's hoping the ACA transcendsRead More into a single payer system like England. They fail to tell taxpayers that those countries pay for it with a 15-18% VAT(Value Added Tax) on every item you buy. I also reported issues at my polling place and was ignored. Time to hear what a new person has to offer.
PB April 15, 2014 at 09:35 am
Why would you vote for anyone just based on their party? That is not what democracy is about. HowRead More about looking at the person's view on the issues, and their past experience?

Nothing new there Black panther o Poetry the human race has been delving the depth of depravity forRead More eons. There are a lot of good people in our world, but unfortunately evil is hyper active

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!
Passover eatures six symbolic foods, including matzo, a cracker-like unleavened bread symbolizing the Exodus from ancient Egypt when there was not enough time to let the bread to rise. Patch file photo.
andy fischer April 14, 2014 at 11:41 am
"A number of contemporary scholars believe the story of the Exodus is apocryphal and that theRead More Israelites were never among the peoples subjugated by the ancient Egyptians. Regardless of any historical debate, most rabbis believe...." So even if it is pretty much agreed all or most of these events are myths, followers are encouraged to perpetuate superstitious practices - just like Catholics not eating meat on lent Fridays.
MIKE M April 14, 2014 at 01:43 pm
Correction: You state: "Unlike most Jewish holy days, there is no synagogue service forRead More Passover, although some congregations and other organizations conduct Seders." In fact, there is a holiday service for the first two days and the last two days of Passover, as there is for the other pilgrimage festivals of Sukkot, and Shavuot. On the last day of the holiday, next Tuesday, the Yizkor service, a memorial service for the dead is added to the service.

To Martha Lieberman, some advice to find happiness in your life: Cook up a nice meal, invite aRead More homeless person from your neighborhood to share and read a story from the Haggadah. That homeless person would feel like a Mensch again, and, imagine, you, yourself, delivered him/her from bondage. G-d would smile at you throughout the whole Seder meal. Shalom!

Someone should have walked by him and whipped a big wad of crap at him and see how he likes it.

John Chrusciel April 14, 2014 at 02:16 pm
John the reports stated the vehicle was on fire. This was before the crash. Maybe the driver saw hisRead More tractor on fire and had a massive heart attack? Who knows.
John Chrusciel April 14, 2014 at 02:21 pm
Decaturette back in the days before collapsible steering shafts it was a bad idea to wear a seatbeltRead More because during a head on collision the steering shaft would act as a spear and run you through. I never wore a seat belt my old MGA or TR3. However, this is no longer a problem because of modern design and engineering. Some people will hem and haw about being t-boned at an intersection and the harm that a three point harness can do. I personally know many people who have had their lives saved by seat belts. I always wear mine. They should afford children the same opportunity to protect themselves. A 25 mile per hour head on collision with another vehicle travelling at 25 miles per hour is like a 50 mile per hour collision. So I do not buy the argument about shorter distances nor do I buy the article about lower driving speeds. What can is cost to have simple lap belts installed in a school bus? Are we that greedy?
Becky April 14, 2014 at 04:03 pm
I think the real reason they don't install them is that it would raise a whole other level ofRead More liability -- like that then they would have to keep the seatbelts in good working order, and maybe enforce that people wear them. Could I sue them because another passenger flew out of their seat and hit me. Etc, etc.

Clewson, please stop making up nonsense (it makes you look foolish), if you actually paid attentionRead More to what other said you would see that my very first comment was "While of course we should all commend the Catholic Church for its humanitarianism...." so take your fake outrage somewhere else................. Secondly the church may have paid heavily for their actions but they are nowhere near done, they need to account for their actions and that means that they need to allow for an audit and stop harboring known enablers and facilitate prosecutions.
christie nicolle April 15, 2014 at 09:35 pm
folks, please stop trashing the Mystical church of Jesus over the horrible mistakes of the CorporateRead More church - stop using pedophile priests to denigrate Jesus -- He already warned us all of the demonic forces. Why do you think pedophiles join the church? To tear it down.
Buzz351 April 16, 2014 at 08:07 am
@ Christie, you are correct on why these pedophile priests joined the church. The Blessed VirginRead More Mother appeared to the children of Fatima and demanded that the pope ,along with all the bishops of the world,to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. After Vatican II the church was swamped with many new priests... many devout communists, Marxists who had no intention of serving God but to destroy souls, ala pedophile priests, and shut down the Catholic Church to forge ahead with their godless communists agenda. Our Blessed Virgin Mother promises a long period of world peace when/if the consecration of Russia takes place. With a large amount of communists infiltrated in the upper ranks of the Vatican it will be a miracle if our current pope heeds the Blessed Mother and performs the consecration. Dominus Vobiscum
