Our younger selves would also have to be willing to accept the advice. Often easier said than done.
Pearl Gannon April 16, 2014 at 09:47 am
I believe both of you have very good points. @Sal, who's to say that we, as younger children orRead More people would actually listen to that advice that we were given? We want to be free, do the opposite of what our parents say, etc. And @Bob, I wish more people realized that they can be THAT PERSON for others. We can be that for our children, friends going through rough times, strangers...you name it. The possibilities are endless. I just hope people learn that!

Sal is so right. Younger me would not have listened to me.

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!

Deerfield, is that where the Deer take a dump? I think Deer vote Republican because they just followRead More the herd to nowhere. How's all your Walmart friends? Nice outfits

Hey Johnny on the spot. Sounds about right...

PATCH ~ Why do you continually send out FALSE AND MISLEADING HEADLINES when the event has alreadyRead More passed? Case in point, today : "more snow on the way this weekend!" The article is dated 2/28/14!! The snow has passed by today 3/4/14. You do this all the time. Not worth reading your info if it is all OLD NEWS!!!
Pat March 4, 2014 at 07:24 am
Didn't the Botanic Garden seed swap happen LAST SUNDAY?? Please update your articles before postingRead More the same ones over & over & over again. Makes your "news" old and the event most probably has Passed.

Sorry about that, Pat. Thanks for letting us know.

What a waste of money plowing the curbs AGAIN on Wednesday morning at 3:30am. Is the DG plowingRead More schedule based on when the bars close ??
Kent Frederick February 20, 2014 at 08:55 am
Have you noticed how narrow some streets are, because the snowpack is so far out from the curbs? IfRead More you drive around Kingsley School, and parents park on both sides of the street, a car can barely get down the middle of the street. I noticed yesterday, while cleaning out the storm sewer grate, than the snow is melting underneath the snowpack. So, without plowing the curbs, streets will remain narrow. Would you rather than the snowplow drivers working during the mornng rush?
Harold Sullivan February 20, 2014 at 08:58 am
Yes, the streets have been very narrow. Then you get morons parking on both sides, opposite eachRead More other and people can't get through or even get out of their driveways. This is ridiculous. If i happen to ding someone's car that is parked like that, I can tell you right now that I ain't leaving a note. Tough cookies.
