Ok so all this security for the marathon, what about the platform of train stations, parks duringRead More lunch, outdoor concerts, parades and charity walks? Give me a break. All this police presence and money spent and overtime is a scare tactic and can't possibly deter someone determined to carry anything out.

There should be special courts for psych cases just as there are special courts for financial,Read More maritime, juvenile, family and other specific types. This does not mean getting off with any difference in time, but it would mean a more accurate routing and disposition of the individuals. In many cases people do not want to change and would rather be sent to standard jails eventually released and still a danger to society.

Some people do not have even an ember of empathy and need more separation from others and extendedRead More treatment, maybe life long, this may or may not be a case. And, many people just do not have a sense of proportionate response. No matter how trivial the response is irrationally disproportionate.

This is not local news. Why is this article here?

Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

What Happens when these convicted scumbags that are sentenced to life without the Posibility ofRead More parole KILL someone while in Prison. What will their sentence be? Will you take Hobby Craft Time away from them??? Will you not allow them their dessert? Stop coddling these scumballs and execute them. I am also for the execution of Child Predators as well. It's disturbing that the Liberal's in this Country are AGAINST KILLING CONVICTED MURDERER'S but have NO ISSUE with KILLING THE UNBORN!!!!!

Why is it that our Property taxes continue to rise in Concord while our services decrease? EasterRead More Egg Hunt's, Fireworks for the 4th of July etc... Why must these activities be privately funded. Why is it that our Streets are in HORRENDOUS SHAPE and the timetable for their repair keeps getting pushed out. The Street I live on hasn't been repaved since the 1980's sewer lining project, some 30+ years ago, we were promised by the City Council it would be done by 2017 and that has now been pushed out until 2022 according to the City;s website. Yet we can afford to revamp Main Street to the tune of over $16 + Million dollars. With just $4.3 Million being paid by a Federal Grant. That is still a lot of money to be spending on a project that will have dramatic changes for the residents and Business Owners of this City. Does anyone even know if this project will provide the results that are desired and at a cost we can afford?? There are still a lot of unanswered questions about this MASSIVE project as in who will paying for the upkeep and yearly maintenance for these new streetscapes?? When will we the Citizens of Concord, who by the way will be paying for this project, get the answers we so rightly deserve???

This upsets me because I asked David Gill two months ago if the Concord Grange could help with theRead More Egg Hunt on the Heights. I will let you know is what I got for an answer. Then I kept calling him and asking again about, didn't get any calll backs about it, I even tried this last week and this week about it, thinking if they need prizes or what could we do and still didnot get an answer. I spoke to DJ in the office who said she would get him to call. The Grange is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year on the Heights are are hoping to raise money for a flagpole at Keach Park, but we would be happy to help keep the Egg Hunt going. I hope in the future the Grange isn't slighted again.

what else would you expect from this ugly fat loser monkey she should be shot right away- no jailRead More time but dead within 10 minutes of verdict- you wonder why there is so much racism- well here is a prime example of why there is all of it in this country- that monkey is to fat to swing in the trees

Right and going by the fine which was 589 times the cost of the soda, BP, that did so much damage toRead More the Gulf should be fined .... 2Billion X 589 .... right, not in the Corporate States of America. That isn't going to happen. How about we apply that same fine to Wall Street .. hell they damn near wrecked the world's economy and have you seen any fines near 589 times the damage done? Direct your ire to the right people ...

Stealing is stealing and it costs all of us. People who eat the grapes at the grocery store withoutRead More paying for them, are stealing! Every item stolen adds up to added costs to everyone. I would have told this person to pay up first before the fine but the fine is always going to be more than the item. The fine is prevent the person from doing it again. Parking in my city overnight on the street used to be a $5 fine and so many people did. They have since raised the fines. This winter those overnight cars caused a lot of problems. They could not remove the snow with cars on the street. People don't think of the consequences before doing something wrong. Yes, people do things that are wrong but why does this it right? The 89 cents is really cheap for a soda so it makes sense that they don't allow refills for free. I have seen people using soda machines with their own cups. It ends up costing me for being honest. Eat me!

This is ridiculous. Let the guy pay on site. Waste of tax payers money. Theft is wrong, but this forRead More some reason seems different as many restaurants do give free refills.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

It Does make you wonder why the FDA would approve a NEW and CONTROVERSIAL pain medicine that has aRead More higher potency than drugs that are on the market today but DOESN'T HAVE THE SAFEGUARDS TO PREVENT OTHER USES. This new drug is called ZOHYDRO. This is an excerp from the article I used for research on this topic ""In the midst of a severe drug epidemic fueled by overprescribing of opioids, the very last thing the country needs is a new, dangerous, high-dose opioid," the coalition wrote in a letter to FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg." http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/26/health/zohydro-approval/ Please take the time to educate yourself about this new drug.

An announcement was made by Dartmouth Hospital and it's affiliates earlier this week where they saidRead More THEY WON'T BE PRESCRIBING THIS NEW DRUG. This is GREAT news as the Medical Community is finally coming together to make a stand against the FDA's disconnect with drug addiction.
