First let me say this is a worthwhile program. But the press release should mention who is reallyRead More going to pay.....taxpayers. Unless the contractor is eating the cost, it will be included in their bill back to the state or they'll inflate the cost of another service to make up for it. Although, with the number of people who actually end up using it and given the short commuting distance, the cost will most likely be negligible.
Anthony D'Antonio April 22, 2014 at 04:28 pm
Ron, thank you for responding to my blog. Your point is well taken, however, we all pretty much knowRead More how the game is played when it comes to city, state or federal projects. It is true that the cost is always passed on to the taxpayer/consumer one way or another and that "for profit corporations" are just that...for profit! I am a St. Clement parishioner and my concern with this weekend project heightened when we here at the church realized that many people who attend live across the RR tracks, are elderly and do not drive and would be unable to go to church; no pedestrian path and no easy way to get there by car and park. Our parishioners support our church and our school buildings and their generosity is greatly appreciated and needed...especially on the weekends. And yes, you are correct, the cash outlay is nominal at best. In closing, the GLX team and Barletta Heavy Division was concerned with this issue...more so than the city of Medford administration.
Ron Swanson April 22, 2014 at 05:49 pm
Thanks Mr D'Antonio. Agreed, this is a cost effective solution to the problems construction willRead More cause this weekend. Completely understand the people being inconvenienced through no fault of their own should not bear the costs. Would just rather have the contractor actually take the loss on this mitigation if they want the positive PR that comes with it.

No, Alex. We believe God led (or inspired) various families, groups and individuals to come to HisRead More "Promised" or "chosen" land, reserved for a righteous people. The first family group thus described in the "Book of Mormon" as "led" by God, to what came to be known as the Americas, was the family of Lehi. Younger son Nephi and others were obedient to God's commands and blessed, while his brother Laman (and others) were lazy, jealous, disobedient and warred against the Nephites. God did not want the righteous Nephites to intermarry with the wicked Lamanites, so he cursed the latter with dark skin so that they would be visibly distinguished and separate.------------------------------------------- If you have more questions, please ask a Mormon friend, or invite Mormon missionaries in to answer them.

I prefer the gym so I can get out and meet people, but a good brisk walk will do, too!

I don't own a car - never did. That means I WALK a lot. Hey, if I miss the once-an-hour bus home inRead More Malden, it's only 20 to 30 minutes to walk it. I still pack on pounds in the Winter, less ambition to go out and not as easy to walk. Now that the warmer weather is here, it's time to WALK to the comic book staore (NEC) again. You were spot-on with the 10-15 pounds thing. I'm looking to lose the 13 or so I put on.

Lack of internet access (in terms of trolling email/facebook/news) is the Kindle Paperwhite'sRead More biggest benefit as far as I'm concerned. I can focus on the book and only the book, which is great for the highly-distractable folks like me. Also, borrowing and returning books from the library is easy. It's fantastic for traveling -- load up with books and return them when you get home. Ironically, I love books -- real books, printed on paper -- my house is full of them and I don't want "the real thing" to go away. It's also ironic that I'm reading more than ever now that I have the Kindle -- the adjustable nature of the lighting, fonts, spacing, etc., helps my eyes, especially at night.

Cesar Milan is a bully, he is not a certified dog trainer....pit bulls exceed most other breeds inRead More temperament tests. ANY breed of dog can bite given the right conditions. To link up with a site that hates a breed is very irresponsible of The Patch. People should learn how to treat, train and socialize all dogs. A pit bull is not a demon, they are a dog, they have lived in The White House, as the first decorated war dog hero for saving his unit, used as service dogs, Helen Keller's favorite seeing eye dog, owned by countless movie stars and many loving families, as therapy dogs and drug dogs for law enforcement. The pittie is was known as the nanny dog because of their good natures. They do not make good guard dogs, human aggression has been bred out of them that is why thugs try to use them to fight. Educate yourself on dogs, I'm sick of defending them to people who are easy to judge without any real knowledge....many of these sensational attacks are different breeds, many people wouldn't know a pit bull from many other breeds. Big head, oh must be a pit. Educate yourself these dogs die in shelters every day because of ignorance. Why is this even in the Lower Moreland Patch, this is not national news! Do yourself a favor and read about dogs and warning signs before spouting off. Most dogs will only bite as a last defense, it is their only defense, there are very few unsound dogs compared to bad owners and foolish people. A pit bull is simply a dog. A good family breed if you do your homework.
Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?
