Going to be tough to sell Natick Patch will very little Natick news. If I owned a business in NatickRead More I would NOT advertise. Maybe you should look for Massachusetts or National sales reps as that is all I see on Natick Patch is Massachusetts and National news!

@Gerson Goldstein You can say God in school, just like the Klan can say what they wish. SchoolsRead More can't force God on kids. You don't seem to understand the 1st Amendment.

KKK breaks into a few homes and then comes to the rescue. An age old strategy.

How do you really know they are up? They could be sleeping underneath those capes. I would thinkRead More you would wear something more scary like a Michael Myers of Leatherface mask, thought would work better I would think.

I notice he didn't come to NH to tell us, he told a bunch of Massholes. That's not going to help youRead More Mr. Brown.

Now where did I hear that if you're real lucky in life, you'll have 1-2 "friends," withRead More everybody else being just mere acquaintances.

The police are great at giving out speeding tickets and tickets for stop sign violations. But whatRead More about apprehending criminals who commit serious crimes? Seems like the focus should be spent on undercover work and detective work. It is easier, I surmise, to give out traffic violations than match wits with criminals.

@jpf2361: The grant money covers the OT for the extra patrols so that the taxpayers don't have toRead More pay for it.

Thanks for the clarification Tony. Maybe in the future Lt. O'Malley could mention why a Grant isRead More needed. Thanks

Now that is something. Imagine how big this baby will be in a couple of years. He probably won'tRead More even fit through a regular door!

Sunny do you have any scientific information whatsoever to back up your asinine comment?

Thank you Alison I was thinking the same thing....

The kid was shot multiple times and was down and the man still approached and shot him in the face,Read More that IS murder.

After reading some of these comments I would hate to be in a catastrophic situation with some ofRead More you. You have clueless victim written all over you.

come in my house and you will never leave alive.If the older Gentlemen did not hear them and theyRead More came across him you tell me if they would not have tied him up beat him and probably kill him , Because they would have been afraid of him being able to ID them and they would go to Jail. He had every RIGHT in the BOOK to do what he had to do, Stay the F#&% out of Peoples homes that you were not invited into.

I do agree that Christine Rath needs to go. Her policies and ideals hold kids back. I amRead More experiencing it first hand with my child now. She is my 3rd at this high school so it isn't one of those situations where a parent thinks their kid is all that. My first two were fine but my 3rd is high honors and bored out of her mind. They won't allow her in more challenging classes because she is not in her junior or senior year
Tony Schinella (Editor) April 23, 2014 at 11:25 pm
Test scores are just one criteria of the methodology, as stated in the article. Franklin scores wereRead More only slightly lower than the Concord schools. If you look at the information for all three schools you can see why it might be ranked higher: Franklin has a much higher economically disadvantaged level meaning it has more ground to make up. It also has the same AP participation as CHS and better than MVHS. It also has a better teacher-ratio than both schools. The US News & World Report annual high school study though is highly respected and the "go-to" source when looking at this kind of comparison data.

Would you mind telling me how I'm arrogant?
SPH April 24, 2014 at 12:58 pm
For starters, you obviously didn't have the answer to my question on when the tax increase wouldRead More take effect. Instead of staying out of it, you couldn't refuse the opportunity to use my inquiry as a launching point for yet another regurgitation on your lost cause. You didn't have the answer and should've passed, but it just wasn't in you.
Exeter Resident April 24, 2014 at 01:55 pm
Misunderstanding is the same as arrogance? In any case, you didn't ask when the gas tax would goRead More into effect. You asked when you would see the effect at the pump. I gave you an answer to that question and explained it. Maybe you should ask questions more clearly.

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

Shameless plug SPOILER ALERT...Thursday, May 1st is also the date that Jeff Bauman will be in theRead More Concord Public Library's downstairs auditorium at 7pm to say a few words, sign more than a few books, and do the meets & greets thing. Anyone planning to go should get there EARLY. Jeff just did a book-signing in Nashua this past Saturday, where according to one report I read, HUNDREDS attended. FYI.

This is a great article. If your financial institution has guarantees on fraudulent charges and theyRead More try to stick you with the bill or change certain terms and conditions without consideration or notice, make sure you seek legal advice from an attorney. It is very important that you check your credit report annually. You can check your credit report for free on the website mandated under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which can be found at www.annualcreditreport.com.
jpf2361 April 24, 2014 at 02:44 pm
Steve Marino, Super Lemming just wanders the Patch sites, probaly following me and making asinineRead More statements (Trolling) to rile people up and then he vanishes. Typical Liberal COWARD.
Matt April 24, 2014 at 02:54 pm
J Parker who do u want to be president?
Steve Marino April 24, 2014 at 03:55 pm
@Matt, any one that runs for president that is a fiscal conservative would be a far better choiceRead More then a candidate like Hillary that has no clue how capitalism works. We don't need more of the same as we have. Increasing the poor, and killing the middle class is not success. We need a complete reversal of policy to get there, not the same policy that we currently have.
