Evelyn April 16, 2014 at 11:49 am
lol, this ended well, but really i know kids that age that have climbed on chairs unlocked doors andRead More gone out.. she was in the bathroom.. bb prob opened the door, went across to the place, maybe he has been there before, and got inside thru the prize door, wow this is like a real life "Baby's day out" all these grown ups and no one saw him either cross alone and go in and into the machine!!dang
Vinnie B. April 16, 2014 at 11:54 am
Do you idiots even read the story or watch the video? ALL of the information is right at yourRead More fingertips and you STILL manage to be uninformed. You people have ZERO leverage to mock the parent in this story. Truly incredible

Kara, that's how you speak to a reader as a member of Patch? 1) If they no longer have staff inRead More Pittsburgh, then maybe it's not appropriate for them to write about Pittsburgh news. 2) Sure this is a free service for readers, but the Patch makes money off of ads on the site. Which are determined by the level of readership of a site. So even if this is free, the Patch is still making money based on people reading it. If you want to keep readers, the Patch should be sure to serve up relevant content specific to the regions of their readers. Period.
Dee Jay April 16, 2014 at 10:48 am
Also, considering that all the Patch does 90% of the time is scrape and post news stories from otherRead More sites, you should really strive to create posts that are both relevant and newsworthy to the reader that 10% of the time that you do generate your own posts.
Kara Seymour April 16, 2014 at 10:50 am
Patch is undergoing a restructuring and at the current moment not every site is staffed. ApologiesRead More if the site in your town is not meeting your current needs.

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.
Country1st April 16, 2014 at 10:50 am
A little late, don't you think? Corbett is such a hypocrite -- When he was PA state's AG, he put 1Read More state trooper on the Sandusky child abuse case -- allowing Sandusky to continue to rape and molest God knows how many more kids -- and now, Corbett is the protector of children. Not. Corbett must go.

This poor and allegedly pilfering fellow's life has just done a 180. What a mess he's made ofRead More things. The worst would come in the future as he'll have to face former clients. What a mess and cautionary tale.
Jay April 16, 2014 at 10:36 am
It's an employee, not the business owner. if the business owner knew, that would be a differentRead More story. Or if this guy had a criminal history that wasn't reviewed or taken seriously. Employees are people and people often suck.
MikeS-FCG April 16, 2014 at 10:48 am
With a last name that is the same as the business name (Walters), it's entirely likely that he's aRead More family member and/or part owner. Nevertheless, business owners are people also.

Typical behavior from government pigs. They steal our tax dollars, then turn around and spend themRead More on the police state they use to oppress us.

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.

Beautiful! Thanks for writing this; the message is for everyone.

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.

Chicago man should be a dead Chicago man-but we will put him in prison with all his buddies!
Chris Stacy April 16, 2014 at 10:17 am
He did not have a "submachine gun", he had an ordinary pistol. (One way you can tell isRead More that there was no mention of an additional federal charge for illegally possessing one. Another way would be to Google Intertec 22, assuming you understand that a machine gun fires more than one round when you pull the trigger, and this one obviously does not.) This is just the media trying to hype up the story by inventing a machine gun where there was none. Isn't it a good enough story that some felon went nutcase with an illegally possessed stolen pistol?
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 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.
DaveR April 16, 2014 at 10:52 am
I believe it was Gov. Dukakis that allowed the dopers and losers into the senior housing. Got toRead More love the blind faith voting mentality of Massachusetts.

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.
Apolinaire April 14, 2014 at 02:42 pm
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!

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.
