I don't have time to read the comments here, but has anyone complained about how much Obama travelsRead More in Air Force One for fundraisers? Because I don't think anyone has.

Good catch KJ, PRESIDENT Obama will not get my vote again !

Just another idiot looking for a handout from the state with the help of a scum lawyer.

In this day and age you have to be aware of your surroundings at all times in public and even inRead More bathrooms and changing rooms to protect yourself. I understand why this woman is so upset, I do. (I thought the State was immune from lawsuits.) All this does is drive up the cost oif insurance for state and municipal parks, when so many are working to preserve them, this kind of lawsuit deters more towns and states from acquiring and keeping parkland.

I am appalled at the amount of victim blaming in these comments. It's true that it's hard to come toRead More a conclusion with no witness, but that goes both ways.
Clare July 25, 2014 at 09:58 am
OK, all you men on here making comments, did you LOOK at this old guy's picture? Did you notice theRead More "woman" is only 18 and probably the daughter of the homeowner? It was obvious by the fact that she left the room until he was done that she was scared of him, not that she "changed her mind". If you think for one moment that a teenager would be at all interested in having her back massaged by this ugly old man, then you need help!

The risks are real and there are steps you can take to increase your personal safety!

Barbara, I didn't see that. Please keep us posted. Thank you

I'm glad someone cared enough to find who killed these woman. They weren't for gotton by theseRead More wonderful officers. God Bless Them.

I cant agree with you more, Lin. People need to learn that they WILL get caught eventually

To everyone faulting DI for not commenting on this, I completely disagree with you. They made aRead More simple statement saying that there was more to the story than what we are being told. That's all they need to do. Unlike this attention grabbing entitled mother and her uncontrollable kid, DI is taking the dignified approach by not partaking in a public display of he said/ she said. Good for them. Take another look at the tv report and tell me that kid is not out of control. He is running all over the place with the reporter's microphone, which he has no business even touching. Clearly the mother has not taught him the word "no". Better that he learn at 4 that the world will not tolerate his obnoxious behavior. God bless his teachers. :)
Carolyn Armstrong July 25, 2014 at 11:13 am
I agree some one has to teach these kids basic manners and for those of us who do teach these thingsRead More at home it is good to finally have back up from the rest of society. Yes, I say God bless his teachers wherever they come from

Shouldn't lefty Patch writers include a footnote with their definition of "surplus" inRead More this headline?
Angie Stock July 24, 2014 at 10:51 pm
Because some of us have been on to the DC politicians' misuse of the word "surplus" for aRead More while now, and I'm sure it's not much different here in CT.

Surplus? Lower my taxes please - you overcharged me

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.
PS July 24, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Let's be realistic, those who are "unaware" probably aren't the people buying organic inRead More the first place. Lay off Kara - she's the only reason the patch is any good!

Joe - You are a broken record that should be smashed. In your feeble mind every gun owners is nuts.Read More Since when is Pennsylvania a "redneck state". PA is ranked #10 in toughest gun laws by Brady gun-takers so maybe you should educate yourself about stuff that mattters. As for Bobbie, the doctor was grazed in the head by a bullet that two inches in another direction could have made him dead, and allowed the rampage to continue. What makes you "suspect" anyway? That there is a real-life DGU in front of you and you have no way to dismiss it as anecdotal musings of the NRA?
Thomas Paine July 25, 2014 at 10:40 am
Cohort - Don't feed the trolls. They are too small minded to ever admit that see how this tragedyRead More could have been worse had the doctor not been armed. Next they will tell you they doctor should be fired for violating the medical center's rules on gun carrying on their campus. To those diseased minds, better that the doctor obey the idiotic "gun free zone" credo than have prevented a tragedy from becoming worse.
Bobbie July 25, 2014 at 10:59 am
That's right, Thomas. We should all disobey the laws. That will keep us calm and civilized. andRead More the body count will be out of sight. The NRA has you on a tight leash, Thomas.

Giant Cheez-It crackers with salsa. OR remove one cookie from each of 2 Oreo double-stufs, feedRead More those to the dog, put the two remaining together to make one quadruple-stuf. OR Pringles with Lipton onion soup dip. OR a vanilla wafer topped with a banana slice, a smear of chunky peanut butter, and a squirt of Hershey's Special chocolate syrup.

I wouldn't call pizza junk food. unless you're getting it from dominos or some other chain. ButRead More anyway, the answer to this is easy. My favorite junk food is Chips Ahoy (and not those disgusting chewy ones) - dipped in milk, of course.

Dairy Queen? Carvel? What a stupid survey.

Dairy Queen doesn't serve ice cream. It has to be classified by them as a frozen treat since itRead More doesn't meet the content requirements to be called ice cream.
