Years ago a neighbor of mine got a new puppy for Easter. I thought the thing was one of the bunniesRead More destroying my vegetable garden. So add to this list "shot for looking like a rabbit" and please make sure you tell your neighbors you just got a new puppy. Easter has never been the same for either of us. Very sad.

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.

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.

And we don't get any local news. Oxford Patch did not report the burglary's in Oxford.

We don't have any local news, just boring politics, rained out stories of "Sandy", PoliceRead More stories without names and details. All the usual "cub reporter" crap. Don't blame the reporters it's just an on line "rag". Not even the ability to find stories, investigate a good story, or "MODERATE" the posts and comments. Example Notice the picture of the perp? Check the ears, eyes and face. Wrestler, MMA, brawler?What's your take on the guy, and why did he leave town? Drugs? What did the witnesses say to the cops… lots of good stuff in town, but poor reporting from the "PATCH". No follow-ups either.

Way to go Judge! She deserves whatever she gets.
Sherry April 18, 2014 at 11:50 am
When someone intentionally brings harm to another person or person, their punishment for the crimeRead More should be the same and there would be less crime. Stab her to death. Save the taxpayers money, and she deserves nothing less where it's case of intentional murder. The judge was frustrated by the limits of the law.

@Bill, Andrew- please stop turning the conversation into a right-left debate, it should not be- WhatRead More these kids - hs-seniors did should not be acceptable in our society- They should have been taught right from wrong and know this form of expression is unacceptable. Why did they think it was ok to do? Instead of debating the punishment for the behavior why are people not debating the behavior and how to prevent it not whether it happened with rich or poor kids, the outcome is the same.
Michael April 18, 2014 at 11:04 am
Ron-"If Brother Cregan had only confiscated the original Confederate flag without a suspensionRead More this would've been a dead issue. " So that's the only punishment that should happened, just sweep it under the rug and business as usual? Great way to teach right/wrong!
Andrew Scott April 18, 2014 at 11:13 am
Bill, you are absolutely right. Nothing was "taught." The lesson here is that students canRead More and will be thrown under the bus for political expediency. St. Anthony's Administration failed to do the courageous thing, and educate anyone on anything here. Shame on them.

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.

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!

should be done at all times not just during a speed week
knee jerk April 17, 2014 at 11:05 pm
Yes, cb, I think they could come up with some other catchy names for various crack-downs on the taxRead More paying public. How about "Click-it-or-Ticket Week" or "Text Week" or "No-Right-On- Red Week" or "PBA Week" etc,etc. This way you could stay home the week of your biggest weakness.
Bryan Rivera April 18, 2014 at 07:33 am
cb, maybe they should put speed cameras on every road and ticket everyone that drives 1 mile perRead More hour over the speed limit. Maybe they should take it a step further and monitor every single vehicle for location and speed and store it so they can find patterns in everyone's behavior and ticket even more efficiently. All of that would be completely free of charge, of course, because it doesn't cost anything to constantly police roadways.

I wonder when they plan on putting the CIA on trial for conspiracy to distribute these drugs...orRead More when they plan on going after the big pharma companies that are the main buyers of the product they're trying to get rid of. With everything the way it is, it is hard to believe that big government and big pharma is not colluding to produce huge profits at the expense of the addicts they cultivate. Look up zohydro...a drug ten times stronger than oxycontin. We have enough problems with oxy, why would you multiply that problem by ten?

Can anybody who wants to keep the electoral college intact please explain why the vote of someoneRead More from, say, South Dakota, should have more weight that a person from New York?
Big_E April 18, 2014 at 10:59 am
SS cards are not photo IDs though and currently the voter ID laws require "state issued "Read More photo IDs. And we're not talking about cost, but convenience. Do you have to go in person to get these free IDs, or can you get them by mail? Because if it's in person, M-F, 9-5 then yes, that's a burden for poor people who can't get time off to go wait in line. AND NO..most states do NOT have a law requiring you to have ID. Five do. And in almost all states, you have to be suspected of a crime to be arrested. Not having ID is not a crime. I can choose to go out without my wallet if I so choose. And, I can identify myself with a library card, or bank cashing card. Or a credit card. Or a bank check. They all have my name on them. But they are not sufficient to vote.

What if a Term of Office as President of the United States was simply put up on e-bay every fourthRead More year, and sold to the highest bidder? The successful bidder would then have until November 30th of the same year to designate an eligible person to serve that term, and present our new President sometime between December 1 and December 15, after his/her eligibility had been confirmed by a Senate committee. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- All proceeds from the sale of the term of office on e-bay would go to the Social Security Fund

Stephanie Steele, no, I did not see the report. By your description, it makes it even worse. BecauseRead More the "Adult" that rented the Party Bus had too know exactly what was going to happen. As for my comment above stating "But the main responsibility should of been with the kids themselves." was from a " they should of known" point of view. Legally, it is definitely the parents responsibility.
EG April 16, 2014 at 09:02 pm
Maybe the "kids" just figured out how much they needed to borrow for college on top of theRead More 100+ grand of debt they each inherited from the current generation of idiots. How can you blame them for wanting to get drunk?
