Woodbury Patch, really? Living in the suburbs, why the heck would I drive in to St Paul orRead More Minneapolis, navigate that nightmare of a traffic situation--where the trains keep hitting cars---to find a place to park and then ride a stupid train that takes longer to ride than to bicycle? I'll take my car. As for that area...just be forewarned, light rail lines like that are a great way to transport drugs and gang activity back and forth. This is just another failure of unattainable utopian central planning. We live in America people, not Europe. We have vast space and land to cover, and we do not like to be told where, or how, to live. For those who pine for the false so-called purity of European transit, even they are embracing Rapid Bus Transit. It is cheap, flexible and vastly less disruptive. Why we are wasting time, taxpayer money and destroying business and communities for antiquated and unsuitable technology is beyond me. Lastly, the ones who will benefit from this are the ones who put politicians who vote for this, big development, corporations and union construction. When light rail comes in and destroys housing prices and existing businesses, giant (loft/apartment) developers and corporate chains (starbucks, chipotle) swoop in, buy up depressed property at cheap prices and then flip it over at much MUCH higher prices. What was once a quaint middle class neighborhood of neighbors and local businesses is destroyed to make way for a bunch of latte sipping, snooty yuppies and their commercial chains. Congratulations DFL. So much for supporting the 'little people'.

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!

I can't even bring myself to read this. May God have these children in the palm of His hand.

Republicans may seem like ultimate Scrooges. Many want to slash food stamps, unemployment benefitsRead More and just about any program that helps the needy. So they know nothing about poverty, right? Wrong. Actually, conservatives have been proved right about three big ideas of social policy. Liberals may grimace, but hear me out on these points: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/10/opinion/kristof-where-the-gop-gets-it-right.html?emc=edit_th_20140410&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=32808320

Todd, The first step to finding a cure is a correct diagnosis. The correct medicine hasn't beenRead More applied yet. Many still haven't grasped the diagnosis yet. It's too bad there isn't a way to set up clinical tests on sample populations. Trials might prove useful.

A friend of mine worked with one of the people on board the Challenger. I was a labor and deliveryRead More nurse at Methodist hospital in St. Louis Park. I was with a patient in early labor. She had the tv on in her room and we all watched it explode together. It was so hard to be upbeat and happy for my patients delivering that day. The baby born that day is now 28. I wonder where she is and what she is doing today.

I was lying down, nursing my youngest with the television on so I could see the lift off; I hadRead More watched just about every one of our space shots since Alan Shepard had his brief flight when I was in the fifth grade and everyone in my class crowded around a tiny black and white television set in the classroom. I tried so hard not to cry so I wouldn't upset my baby daughter!

i was on the viewing island with a handful of others who braved the cold and expected the launch toRead More be cancelled again. the sound system that had boomed out the countdown and delays went silent as the challenger broke apart. an eerie silence followed, no one spoke a word as we got on to the shuttle to return to the space center. it was a strangely beautiful disaster, pieces falling to earth like fireworks. we couldnt process or believe what we were watching having grown up on flawless launches. RIP explorers.

Minnesota and the Minneapolis area lags farther and farther behind surrounding states. Wisconsin,Read More with its excellent Governor Walker, continues to lure businesses from high-tax, anti-business Minnesota. South Dakota, Iowa, and North Dakota are also leaving Minnesota in the dust. And states that offer citizens a better measure of safety, such as Florida and Texas, with strong "stand your ground" laws, for example, also benefit at Minnesota's expense.
G Wright January 26, 2014 at 08:50 am
Mike B- Where do you get your information? Minnesota has more (by a significant number) Fortune 500Read More firms than the other states you mentioned combined. And as for crime, look at the statistics... Florida and Texas are some of the worst for violent crime in the country.

Parenting is, in part, walking a tightrope between building pride, confidence and self esteem on oneRead More side and tearing down haughtiness and arrogance on the other. It's not accomplished with one event but a process with many examples.
Donald Lee January 21, 2014 at 02:03 pm
Well put. This is one reason "advice" is often so bad. You can recommend actions, butRead More often the spirit and tone of the actions are more important, and those are often hard to describe, much less teach.
Eric Anondson January 26, 2014 at 11:55 am
Parenting is about preparing your kids for the world, not protecting them from it. There is aRead More difference between shaming and bullying. When it I crosses to bullying it I has crossed a bright red line, but not all shaming is bullying. Not being able to see this distinction is a bad thing for a parent, seeing all shaming as bullying, and seeing nothing wrong with bullying their child, both equally harmful to kids.
