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!

@Paul Jacobs It seems that ChrisG thinks that whatever the hospital does is ok and even if the staffRead More kills weather it be a baby or whoever else it is perfectly acceptable. It seems if there is a lawsuit it usually is a simple mistake. (Not usually a killing)As far as I know the family of the baby that died at the hands of a staff did not sue. The hospital only got a fine. The baby's killing and other horrendous stuff that was not even known to the public was going on when the hospital was being watched. The department of health was supposed to close the doors if one more thing happened. I know of more things than that that went on during that time. The fine was not given to the hospital after the baby was killed until the wings were approved and the new hospital was approved. So I guess department of health does not do what they say they were going to do.

@ChrisG.. As for my moms ambulance ride, we have medical insurance so that is covered. As for theRead More ambulance ride vs me taking her, te paramedic highly suggested her going in the ambulance vs me taking her, she would get seen much quicker that way and they could monitor her. She is doing much better now thank you, but still sore. There were no "lessons" to be learned. And to the above comment about weights on the canopies, we did have weights. It did not matter the tents got blown up into the funnel anyway.

beaumontdave March 31, 2014 at 12:16 pm
Robbie, I read that a high water table can lead to liquefaction, but Beaumont's isn't high and mostRead More of the soil is more clay than sand, so the city's probably on good ground, but wedged between two active faults with a lot of smaller "cracks". When my friends lived at Orchard and Beaumont Ave, I happened to look at a USGS map, and saw a fault line going through their rental home, made them nervous as hell. lf I was buying or leasing I'd look at the USGS maps.

I agree James. I own a business in Temecula and I have 4 cameras inside and 1 outside - all of themRead More are hidden except one and it transmits to an outside service, no tapes. I dont get why EVERY business does not have very high quality video imaging. In this day in age it does not make sense. I feel so sorry for Larry and his family. I wish people would use more common sense in protecting themselves and their legacy. We wouldnt be having this tragic conversation had he done the common sense thing.
Anthony March 23, 2014 at 05:07 pm
I am sorry to say Mike that "Common Sense" isn't very common any more. Additionally, manyRead More businesses are struggling out there and make the conscious choice not to purchase surveillance equipment. It is a sad fact of reality none the less true. There is definitely some extremely evil people walking among us who have knowledge of this horrible beating death of this man. I hope one of these individuals runs their mouth soon and that leads to the arrest and subsequent conviction of those involved and the family can have some closure. I'll be doing some personal investigating myself!

@Alex Bloated pensions of our teachers?! Teachers pay for their own pensions. The school districtRead More doesn't contribute a single dime to any teacher's pension. Unlike the city, county and state workers, they get their money matched. For every dime they contribute to their pensions, the state, county or city matches that dime. What would be nice would be to have the district pay for supplies so the teachers don't have to shell out the money. I understand that extra curricular activities cost money but that is something you choose to participate in. I would love to see the parent's reaction to having to provide construction paper, writing paper, glue sticks, scissors, paint, tape, staples, etc. to their child's education. I know that was just a few of things I had to provide for my students each and every year.
KarmaKing March 19, 2014 at 01:57 pm
"Teachers pay for their own pensions. The school district doesn't contribute a single dime toRead More any teacher's pension." Not so Sarah. Teacher's contribute 8%, school districts contribute 8.25% and the State kicks in 5%. That's according to CALSTRS which is the State's teacher pension system ( http://www.calstrs.com/general-information/plan-funding-faqs) and a recent OC Register article here: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/state-602273-percent-districts.html. of course, if CALSTRS can't address it's $70 billion unfunded liability, taxpayers have to pick up that tab also.

@AlwaysPO'd: I think that's a fair question. Let's consider the Veteran's National cemeteries. TheRead More headstones are diverse with dozens of different government sanctioned and approved emblems that "represents the sincerely held belief of the decedent." There are Christian emblems, Jewish emblems, even Wiccan and Atheist emblems. So this is an excellent example of what I'm referring to: Come one, come all; not just Christians, but people of all faiths... and non-faiths. Also, I suspect not too many people are going to argue that showing a religious symbol on a gravestone at a National Cemetery is the same as erecting a statue of Satan or the Ten Commandments on the State Capitol's grounds. (But I like your question! It's a good one!) BTW: Here's the link to the "Available Emblems of Belief for Placement on Government Headstones and Markers": http://www.cem.va.gov/hmm/emblems.asp
AlwaysPO'd April 12, 2014 at 09:28 am
LBV, folks such as these loons, take things too far. They always have, and will, until the finger ofRead More common sense pokes them in the eye. If religion is indeed a belief, then isn't the disbelief of it also a belief? Who's beliefs are then justified to that which is allowed? You see the insanity they promote?

@jeff, only one personality on the Patch? How many do you have in real life? We are all pretty setRead More in our ways that is true. And that is more so for you extreme left and right. Here's the main difference as I see it. Conservatives do not stick behind politicians of their group like the liberals do. We stand behind the issue where you stand behind the party. That is why pols on the right have a harder time keeping political backing than democrats when they foul up. Look at Obama. You think all conservatives are racist but he couldn't have been elected if it were not for the conservatives. Many of us voted libertarian or did not vote for McCain or Romney because those two were not conservative enough. Also, Obama got elected on the white vote. We are not a racist nation as you like to claim Jeff. The right wants to provide a system were all of us, regardless of race, sex, religion, can have opportunity to support themselves. The left wants to enslave the poor in the chains of government handouts. If one side is racist it would be yours not mine.

I am not sure how long the people above me have lived in Temecula but I have to disagree with manyRead More of the comments.In my opinion, this city is one of the top cities in California from my travels. I lived in the Los Angeles area and it is night and day between the two. We have many parks and trails for hiking, bikes and horses. The traffic is getting better and better compare to years ago and is being upgrade. If you haven't taken a tour of the new hospital, it is a first grade hospital with room to grow. I am not sure what schools are overcrowded but there are many public, private schools available in Temecula with great teachers. The city is not perfect, but sure is a first class place to live and work.
southernbelle February 22, 2014 at 06:24 pm
@greg--thank you for your positive attitude, I do still appreciate living in Temecula. But i likedRead More it much more 12 yrs ago! Except for the hospitals. I'm very thankful for those. What I miss, and what my focus on this was--is the charm of the authentic antiquity of Old Town. It's almost completely gone. Replaced by snooty upscale restaurants, gift shops all carrying catalog ordered-overpriced nonsense, and now office bldgs. I loved going to shop all the antique-vintage shops with crafted-artisan original things, unusual finds, etc. It used to feel so homey and small town--now it's like a typical tourist trap with typical tourist nonsense. Gone is the authenticity of Old Town Temecula, it's sad.

@spb, that doesn't explain why Obama is ineffective in his leadership. I agree this is not solely aRead More democrat problem but the fact remains that the Senate and White House are unwilling to compromise with the republican controlled House. I believe your preposition of gerrymandering makes a lot of sense, particularly in states like NY and in CA. The real problem is a 96% reelection rate for incumbents. That existed long before CA redistricting. As long as elections can accept money from the special interests of corporations and unions we can expect this type of inadequate governance.
