If they truly want to make a difference in water usage they would target the city and stateRead More governments who continue to approve new high density residential building. Every time they approve another new development project they are adding to the drain on water. And, fracking needs to stop. Forcing millions of gallons of water and chemicals under pressure into wells in California is a dangerous travesty. Not only does the process of fracking use water, it contaminates the ground water. Yes there is a drought but it is our city and state government who can make a difference, but they continue to build new housing and frack wells to encourage oil production. It is all about money.

City of Huntington Beach is letting a contractor put in a 276 unit complex on Beach and Ellis Ave.Read More Three story underground parking for over 400 cars. Also included are commercial stalls. Where is the water coming from? Did the dumb bells talk to God and he said o.k. I will supply you with rain water? Next. The city is digging up concrete sidewalks to plant trees. Trees need to be watered twice a week. The truck delivers water for them. But their is a water shortage???? lol lol The idiots have no idea how to run a city. Wait until they try to get re-elected! I could care less about conserving.

I was pulling for the Rangers as they were really playing a good game. would have enjoyed theRead More series to continue a bit longer. A bit anti climactic. I sad when the Kings won. I turned the TV off and make the decision not to watch local news as they would be making a fuss about the Kings winning. I didn't want to hear all that. I feel bad for the Rangers.
George June 14, 2014 at 01:50 pm
They are both great teams thus the hard fought over time game. Could have went either way. I live inRead More LA and pulling for the Kings but as the game went on last night I saw myself rooting for the Rangers as they are just that good. I wanted the series to last longer also. A bit anti climactic similar to the dreadful Super bowel either this year.

Attn: Mr. R. Terry Date: Monday June 09, 2014 It is because of gamblingRead More that some horses and bulls lose their lives. When horses continue to have a losing streak the owner is not making any cash off that horse, it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. If a horse breaks it's leg in the race it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. Bulls will die automatically in a Bull Fight after the Matador sticks both swords in the bull's throat from the left and right side of the bull. So don't tell me gambling has nothing to do with your comment. I understood what you were saying. But these animals are going to be killed if there is no money to be made that is all there is to it. I don't like it anymore than you do. But it seems that way the ball bounces and one of us is going to have to catch and stop that ball from bouncing. The best.

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!

Jeff April 9, 2014 at 05:42 pm
It's not that a Kardashian or Hilton aren't reality-based celebrities . They are and I have noRead More tolerance for them personally. They are like dinosaur leeches that grab a hold on our societies lowest common denominator and will not let go. We have become a voyeur society and these families are the Queens of that society. It's degrading and putting our morals on a slippery slope. Personally the use of the word celebrity has less than stellar qualities in today's world than it did yesterday I just hate when someone is called a celebrity because of the sex tape or some other lack of talent or because they have money or are a child of someone of significant note. These bottom feeders and I know that's an unkind statement but these folks are useless examples of what we should not strive for in society and wind up being voyeurs instead . This Type of celebrity appears on supermarket tabloid covers , new stories and is really not worthy of even a mention if you actually looked at what they can accomplish however the damage they're doing to our society and to young women and men everywhere is reprehensible and the press just buys right into it. It's a rant against the loose moral fiber invading out media and lives. The real celebrities and heroes we should look up to are still there but we have a different judgment call today those folks aren't stylish there not splashy or glitzy they don't embarrass themselves they strive to make this world at better place , we tend not to reward that kind of behavior and it's really a shame
