I also have two dogs saved from the pound that are very friendly but but bark at strangers. I alsoRead More have many firearms in my house as I stated in my previous posting. My point is since I've owned dogs I've never had any trouble with burgers or anyone entering my property.

I meant to say burglars
Pat Kittle April 23, 2014 at 11:53 pm
I love dogs, but my circumstances don't allow me to have one. In any case, unless someone loves dogsRead More they shouldn't have one -- simply needing a burglar alarm is not nearly a good enough reason have a dog, and some dogs wouldn't make a good burglar alarm anyway.

I thank these guys for being active and not hiding while on the public dole. I wonder how many areRead More repeat arrest. At this point anyone engaging in DWI is not stopping. Awareness Education and punishments are in place. I don't believe we will see further reductions in DWI/DUI incidences; just minor fluctuation at current levels. The people who get it got it and the people who are still doing it have a screw loose.

Hillary can't control her own husband from fooling around in the White House with interns duringRead More work hours. How is she supposed to navigate running a country?
StandfortheLord April 23, 2014 at 11:53 pm
I have a question for everyone. What makes you think Mr. Obama will leave office on his own? If heRead More gets us into a hot war with the Russians, he'll pull a Rosevelt. That is where he is leading us. World war. He's already clearly a dictator! God will help repentant individuals, but not a nation that has no use for God any longer. God is rising up Russia and communist China! Jesus Saves individuals at this point. This country is done in my humble opinion.

Cops got a chance to play with their toys. Relax people. It's not like you had to respondRead More personally. Stop saying it's a waste of money. Then money is absolutely minimal. These guys were not called away from their golf games. I would also like to compliment the responders for not accidentally killing someone. It showed professionalism and did not add to the "trend" of killing "innocent" people; which is becoming an issues to watch. The people incensed over this should focus their anger on plastic shopping bags as many others are doing over at another great Patch piece. Evil lurks at the checkout counters across America!

Anna Kovarick sold heroin in between picking up and dropping off kids at school, officials say.
Jeannie Jacobs Parisi April 23, 2014 at 12:28 pm
Wow Pat that has to be the most ignorant statement. Kids are dropping like flies, houses are beingRead More robbed and it goes on and on and on. FYI, the Drug Cartel has targeted Long Island even more so now because the DEA has finally cracked down on oxy pills. Watch this video and then tell me you can justify your statement:http://www.newsday.com/long-island/colombian-mexican-cartels-drive-li-heroin-scourge-1.7092806

Pat is a moron- to even post that response shows how stupid she is. Gee- maybe I should a rob aRead More bank, because its a tough economic environment? Can't blame her? How about instead of selling illegal drugs, maybe go to night school and get a degree, to educate yourself. NO- that is too easy right? let's sell drugs. Go to jail and rot.
cally April 23, 2014 at 08:42 pm
Sad part some lawyer will plea the counts down , she will get timed served and probation will be outRead More by mothers day .if we want to put a stop to dealers make dealing heroin a min 25 year sentence . But im prob naive it probably still wont be a deterrent.

Common core problem is that some one sitting in a Wash. DC office decides what's important forRead More children across the nation to learn. Children in Maine, Florida, California, and Washington state learn. The parents have no input. In NYS the problem still exists. Common core is still being implemented here.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.
Seamus Carty April 23, 2014 at 06:47 pm
"The goal of Affirmative was to right an over two hundred years wrong." My family did notRead More get to the US until 1948. Are we part of the two hundred years of wrong? Why should my orthopedic surgeon's kid get preferential treatment over my nephew (son of a plumber) based on the relative complexions?
Porter gladstone April 23, 2014 at 08:25 pm
Hmm--it's all about academics. That's awesome. I wonder why kids play lacrosse or volunteer atRead More church, or play an instrument. After all, you shoulndt take into account one factor other than test scores. Cool. I just happen to think that not many of you believe that's the way it works.
Porter gladstone April 23, 2014 at 10:39 pm
liu wei. Not sure what you mean ""not quit the same." (genius). Really? Oh IRead More thought that lacrosse and affirmative action are the same thing. I only expect people with 90 and above i.q. to understand that test scores are not the only determinants. College admission committees take into account a whole multitude of factors. People on this thread are asking for scholastic considerations only. Playing lacrosse is one factor. Being the captain another. Being the captain of a country championship team another. Being the captain of a state championship team and making all american another. growing up with a single parent --another. Growing up in a ghetto and having the character and drive to defy peer groups in order to seek out a better life another. Sure lacrosse is different than being a minority. So are the experiences that students have in more challenged environments. College admissions officers gauge the probability of success of a student, but also what diversity they may bring in order to broaden the worlds of other students. Where did you go to school Liu? Maybe you went to a school that offered online courses? Because the school that I went to considered the conversations you have in dorm rooms as much an education as going to Econ 101.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
Tamara April 23, 2014 at 10:06 pm
IB is very anti-American, anti-Christian, etc. Please see the Northville MI Parents for EducationalRead More Excellence FB page for a few posts on IB, including a book review of the IB Theory of Knowledge (IB TOK) book - which is the basis of the program.
Susan Harris April 23, 2014 at 10:12 pm
Tamara, what social studies standards are you talking about? The Common Core only covers standardsRead More in literacy and math. There are no CC standards for science or history. Are you talking about state standards?
Tamara April 23, 2014 at 11:35 pm
Common Core has science and social studies standards - they were written after math and ELA - theyRead More have not been implemented yet. They are more controversial so math and ELA was put thru first to pave the way.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

Should plastic bags be a thing of the past?
CAPICU April 23, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Oh oh ...The bag lady is back
Frank Esposito April 23, 2014 at 07:23 pm
Keep up the good fight Lorraine! If this CAPICU joker lived though the attack of plastic bags that IRead More just survived he would be your number one fan. California is always on the cutting edge of what is great about America. I want NYS to be just like them. Death to the plastic bags! I've received a few painful paper cuts in my life; and while plastic bags have not cut me yet I do fear them greatly. One of my greatest fears is I will get one without the printed warning about not placing it over my head. I usually ask for paper and risk the paper cuts; there is no coming back from suffocation by plastic bag. Although prolonged lack of air hasn't seemed to have affected you greatly. You go girl!
Ron Gilone April 23, 2014 at 08:48 pm
Most plastic bags from stores are HDPE (High density polyethelene). HDPE has been accepted byRead More Brookhaven Town for recycling, but not plastic bags. WHY? - Am I missing something here?

Pat Mcloughlin April 23, 2014 at 01:27 pm
Sorry, Autistic boy, but there are a multitude of crimes here. These so called 'friends' abused youRead More terribly ~ called 'bullying', & that alone cannot be tolerated. Then, there is animal cruelty involved, another terrible crime, plus, harassment of all kinds, leudness, & who knows what else. These 'friends' need to be charged & made aware of the seriousness of their deeds, punished accordingly & helped through proper mental councelling.
nonoise April 23, 2014 at 05:49 pm
It is probly the parents that want to drop the charges, not the boy. They shouldn't. I don'tRead More know why they would want to drop the charges.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

There are two separate issues here. The first and certainly the most obvious is security failure.Read More The second is to determine what is in the best interest of the teen, as well as the public.. He needs a psych eval, at the very least. Then again, so does most of the public.
