It's great to see progress occurring, and long-over improvements being made to U.S. publicRead More transportation. We're still far behind the Europeans and Chinese—which is pathetic and appalling, considering that passenger service began in MA over 175 years ago. To be fair, U.S. public transportation, as a whole, has been grievously underfunded (in favor of cars, trucks, and buses), & railroads and trolley lines were systematically neglected and dismantled nationwide over the past 60-odd years—often by a cabal of auto, tire, oil and other companies, a strategy designed to pressure the public into purchasing cars, and riding buses. At last, the citizenry has realized that it was a mistake to let that happen, & is actively advocating for an expansion and improvement of public transportation. Thus this is about more than trains: it's about basic human rights, a sustainable transportation system, & environmental justice. SOP ('Save Our Planet').

I saw her on Pleasant St on the 10th. I live on Sweetser St and was walking toward the NazarethRead More Academy....she came around the corner of the street, saw me and ran back down the street. She did look nervous. FYI.... A lot of the homes on the side streets aren't fenced in yards...she could have crossed through many of them! Prayers that this poor pup is found soon

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 don't find this meaningless.
Dennis Naughton March 28, 2014 at 08:17 am
What would really make it meaningful is addressing the root causes.
Joe Piantedosi March 28, 2014 at 07:18 pm
The root cause is obvious: Middlesex County is much wealthier and better educated than the otherRead More counties. Fewer people smoke and they eat healthier. Also in the poorer counties most residents lead harder lives. They work in hard manual labor jobs and can't afford health clubs and other health related programs.
