Attn: Mr. R. Terry Date: Monday June 09, 2014 It is because of gamblingRead More that some horses and bulls lose their lives. When horses continue to have a losing streak the owner is not making any cash off that horse, it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. If a horse breaks it's leg in the race it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. Bulls will die automatically in a Bull Fight after the Matador sticks both swords in the bull's throat from the left and right side of the bull. So don't tell me gambling has nothing to do with your comment. I understood what you were saying. But these animals are going to be killed if there is no money to be made that is all there is to it. I don't like it anymore than you do. But it seems that way the ball bounces and one of us is going to have to catch and stop that ball from bouncing. The best.

The NRA and its gun loving clones are absolutely disgusting.

Let's not loose our heads with this terrible tragedy and jump on the gun control bandwagon. TheRead More first three were killed with a knife. In a perfect land of no guns I belive these killings would have continued. Once again reconizing mental illness was the key.

What did the NRA do. I do not think the NRA has made any comment on the IV killings.

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 live in beautiful Sonoma County about 30 miles from the Coast. We didn't feel anything. ThankRead More God. Come on up n visit us n then over the hill to Calistoga for a massage n spa treatment. This wine country lifestyle is terrific. Our motto: "Rest. Relax. Enjoy!" God has truly blessed this area with His goodness.... N again, we didn't feel any EQ. Aren't we lucky? :-) From "The Wine Country Diva"

Attn: John Yes, I do remember being quite "peeved" about that in years past as well. IRead More agree that they should at least give us the 3 major holidays and let us have reasonable fires. Better yet, let us "self regulate" and then just go after the major offenders. I think we should have a right to heat our homes in the manner we choose. Thanks for your reply! Steve A.

I hear you! I get particularly peeved when the wind is blowing from the east out to sea and we haveRead More a no burn day. Living blocks from the ocean coastal communities should not be lumped into the greater bay area. This year I really dug into the data, looking at the projected AQI that they set and base no burn days off of vs what actual numbers came in at. Almost every time their projected AQI was well over the actual number, and not by a little, by 20-40 points or more. The majority of the Spare the Air days called did not turn out to have an AQI over 100. I believe KPIX did a story on this? Any one location over a 100 AQI projection triggers a spare the air day the next day for the whole of the Bay Area, from Santa Rosa to South San Jose. There were days that Santa Rosa would have a projection of 103, for example, no-where else would be over 100 and they would call a Spare the Air day for the whole of the Bay Area. Then the actual numbers would come in and Santa Rosa would top out at 89. Below the trigger. It happened consistently all season long. I started posting the actual numbers on Spare the Air's page and calling them on it. Funny how they would respond to many other posts, but never mine. They falsify their data to fit their agenda, and since it is a "projection", when they are wrong, just chalk it up to being "better safe than sorry". Meanwhile we pay more for heating.

Actually the four locos was removed from the shelf long ago. Trying to remember why. Something toRead More kids drinking and some getting very ill ... maybe a high caffeine level or alcohol in it and not labeled as alcohol. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/caffeinated-loko-shelves-country-dec-13-article-1.452337 then they returned again These at that time were in the energy drink section. They have returned MINUS the caffeine.

I hear the Monsters are bad for you too, which sadly, I enjoy...
MadMonkey March 12, 2014 at 01:57 pm
Chris - Most energy drinks can be bad for you. Look at the amount of servings that are in a can, aRead More large can will have up to 4 servings. Most everything in moderation is fine. But when you, and more importantly a kid weighing 60 lbs drinks 4 servings of an energy drink all at once, bad things can happen. It is why Monster and Rock Star come under scrutiny and why Red Bull with their small cans flies under the radar. I enjoy an energy drink now and again as a pick me up, but tend to keep to Red Bull because of the serving size.

The rain that came down in NorCal is not even a fraction of what we get here in Washington State.Read More California would look like the Pacific Ocean, if we traded weather.

Stupid is as stupid does. The control of the government by the left has so manipulated theRead More electorate that they can vote to fund a HSR and not think that the money better used for collecting, storing, and distributing H2O. it's too simple but that does not adhere to the agenda. Jerry Brown went to the desert to see how to handle water (Jordan) but did not go to wet states like Washington sounds stupid to me? If you want to see how to turn a desert into a garden of Eden got o Israel.
