I don't know anyone who has had the flu or know anyone who knows anyone who has had the flu. WhereRead More is this 'epidemic'?
Rick April 19, 2014 at 09:14 am
Two people now constitutes an epidemic. Two people in two different states constitutes a PANDEMIC.
John Santaella April 19, 2014 at 10:06 am
I think you're absolutely correct Rick.

He's just trying to gain brownie points by doing this kind of crap. Celgene has been there forRead More years, it didn't just come to Summit. I don't know what project they are talking about, they have been in Summit for like 10 years... whatever.

While the sound of the whop whop whop of a Huey's far off blades always meant help or trouble toRead More every one who heard them? That sound always made me stop to discern if I was hearing automatic heavy weapon fire. To this very day that sound gets my attention day or night awake or asleep.

3 sec google search: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilbur_Cross_Parkway I don't usually get involvedRead More in other people's disagreements, but in Patch's heyday, Michael Lewis could command respect around here, and I miss the good old days.
Michael Lewis April 14, 2014 at 08:20 pm
@Jay...Sincere apologies as no snark was intended toward Northern New Jersey, "Together NewRead More Jersey" or even Woodbridge, New Jersey towards which I am profoundly neutral. Maybe JUST a little toward Patch, which could not even come up with a illustrating picture of verdant green INSIDE New Jersey...even I could manage that if I tried. As for hiking...sigh...do far too much of it with my hound as it is to actually do it for recreation.
Daniel J Ginty April 15, 2014 at 12:58 pm
Here's a thought. Lets get the Lackawanna Cutoff up and running at least to Andover N.J. as theRead More residents there are looking for another way to get to New York other than the clogged Rt. 80. Lets gently move the birds and frogs off the ROW and start running a passenger line that would benefit everyone in North Jersey.

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!

Wow! Chem trails and government control through water fluoridation. Now we've hit the mother lodeRead More of paranoid conspiracy theories. I think I'll go watch Dr. Strangelove.
wifebert April 19, 2014 at 09:40 am
The U.S. tested atomic weapons out west and gave countless people cancer. They gave black menRead More syphilis a while back just to watch the course of the disease. It would be nice to think that the chem trail notion is a joke, but there are some intelligent people out there who are quite convinced there is something to it. Frankly, nothing would surprise me.
sha April 19, 2014 at 09:44 am
In the 1940s if one said cigarettes cause cancer the response would have been just like yours,Read More Hookerman. Not so funny now that we know the companies KNEW that but hid it from the public. My father in law was a smoker, got hooked, and died from lung cancer.
The northbound travel lanes on the Route 1&9 Pulaski Skyway will be closed for approximately 24 months while the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) rehabilitates the bridge deck.
Linda Maloney April 13, 2014 at 10:09 am
It's about time they started to make repairs on the Pulaski Skyway, it's been literally fallingRead More apart for years! I heard there is even some controversy with the Port of Authority paying for much of this renovation. It is an access road to the Holland Tunnel, but The Port of Authority isn't responsible for The Holland Tunnel roadways because The Holland Tunnel was there before The POA. I guess the gov. and his people do whatever they want with his own little slush fund(POA).
Marlboro Mann April 13, 2014 at 08:50 pm
Lets hear it for the NJDOT. They could have started the work on Christmas, Palm Sunday, or AshRead More wednesday, but they chose instead to begin the chaos on the first day of Passover thus ensuring that the large percentage of Jewish workers arrive late at work but most importantly arrive home long after the sedars are to begin. Anti Semitism? NO Piss Poor Planning? Yes!
Mac April 13, 2014 at 09:07 pm
hey, there's that big whirlybird dropping orange cones on us again - it must be the PassovergateRead More scandal

triptakers April 16, 2014 at 07:55 am
Patch, you're selling out. Let this family figure out their junk without gawkers. You can do betterRead More than this - this is NOT news, it's sensationalism.
MissElanyS April 17, 2014 at 08:49 am
@triptakers, what do you expect from the Patch? They are no longer reporting news and have fired allRead More of their professional staff and hired people off the street with no experience or journalism training whatsoever. Even the National Inquirer has more experience on their writing staff than the Patch. What you are reading here is bird cage liner.
ER April 10, 2014 at 01:10 am
@ OE Defending him or merely telling you of my experience in attending 2 Town Halls? My ownRead More experience is that although like others here, I disagree on some political points, I found him surprisingly accessible. After one of the events, he actually chatted with THE PEOPLE afterward in the parking lot, and although I'm a nobody, even I was afforded an opportunity to have a brief exchange with him out there, about an issue I was concerned about. This article in no way resembled my own experience at either of the events I've attended. Just sayin....
ER April 10, 2014 at 01:16 am
p.s. One of the reasons he stayed to chat with THE PEOPLE outside the venue, was that theRead More attendance was so beyond what they had expected, many folks did not get into the building and he felt bad they had come to the event and the place wasn't big enough to hold them all.

This is all fine and good but what we really need are pay stations that actually work!

And yet another article link! How about posting the whole story, Patch. Otherwise we might as wellRead More subscribe to the other sites so we don't have to go searching for details of the stories.

How about getting rid of the meters and make westfield a place where you can park without the fearRead More of a ticket on your car when you return.also on a recent trip to Trader Joes i was seconds away from getting a ticket.i left the wife in the car to run in to gat a gift card ,came out and a police officer was parked behind my car.it seems like the police need to generate income maybe to justify there jobs .after we left we saw 2 other police cars in the lot by train station,probably giving out more tickets.
