Remember the Swine flu? Avian flu? Avian Flu 2? Nothing ever happened. These are scare tactics byRead More big Pharma to sell more and more drugs. Ask your doctor if your ready for Celestia or whatever is being pushed on TV this week. If I have to ask my doctor if I'm ready for 'X' drug I've got the wrong doctor.

Right John. Watch the commercial for the drug du jour. Fifteen seconds of how wonderful the productRead More is and 45 seconds of side effects which are usually worse than whatever it was you had in the first place.
John Santaella April 20, 2014 at 07:45 am
I often wonder why anyone would want to use any of these products. It often seems the cure is worseRead More than the disease. The ones I love are the ones for mental problems. They only work in 1/3 of the patients. 60% is passing in school yet in these 30% is acceptable. But ask your doctor if ''X'' is right for you. What's happened to our society? And, why do they use young people to advertise Viagra? I'm laughing right now but it's not funny.

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!

The U.S. tested atomic weapons out west and gave countless people cancer. They gave black menRead More syphilis a while back just to watch the course of the disease. It would be nice to think that the chem trail notion is a joke, but there are some intelligent people out there who are quite convinced there is something to it. Frankly, nothing would surprise me.

Today’s Daily Record has an interview with Suzanne Buchanan, who is executive director ofRead More Autism NJ. It’s an interesting read, but a couple of points. When she is asked about the number of those diagnosed, she answers; “…the CDC’s most recent study identified all children who met the diagnostic criteria. Many of them had a formal diagnosis, and some did not”. Later, she is asked about the diagnostic criteria, and she answers; “Differentiating autism from other disorders, such as ADHD, OCD, and Anxiety Disorder requires a thorough diagnostic evaluation by a physician or psychologist with autism expertise”. So, without a full diagnostic evaluation, autism very well may be misdiagnosed, and she admits earlier than some who fall into the autism statistics never were formally diagnosed to begin with. To me, that means that the numbers are probably much higher than they actually are.
The northbound travel lanes on the Route 1&9 Pulaski Skyway will be closed for approximately 24 months while the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) rehabilitates the bridge deck.

It's about time they started to make repairs on the Pulaski Skyway, it's been literally fallingRead More apart for years! I heard there is even some controversy with the Port of Authority paying for much of this renovation. It is an access road to the Holland Tunnel, but The Port of Authority isn't responsible for The Holland Tunnel roadways because The Holland Tunnel was there before The POA. I guess the gov. and his people do whatever they want with his own little slush fund(POA).

Lets hear it for the NJDOT. They could have started the work on Christmas, Palm Sunday, or AshRead More wednesday, but they chose instead to begin the chaos on the first day of Passover thus ensuring that the large percentage of Jewish workers arrive late at work but most importantly arrive home long after the sedars are to begin. Anti Semitism? NO Piss Poor Planning? Yes!

Judy's Nails in Riverton --- do not walk; RUN past this place. Two brushes that were used on meRead More were cleaned in my tub with my feet still in there and then put away in a drawer. I could not believe what I was seeing. The polishes were so old that without the top coat the result looked like chalk. Polish application was done professional grade. Nails (on both hands and feet) were cut on an angle --- if this does not scream "ingrown toenails". The instruments were not visible in a sanitized jar and the file used on me probably went back into the drawer for the next unsuspecting victim. I consider myself lucky that I did not get an infection. Btw... If you don't pay credit card, a receipt is not an option for paying with cash.

@triptakers, what do you expect from the Patch? They are no longer reporting news and have fired allRead More of their professional staff and hired people off the street with no experience or journalism training whatsoever. Even the National Inquirer has more experience on their writing staff than the Patch. What you are reading here is bird cage liner.

@ OE Defending him or merely telling you of my experience in attending 2 Town Halls? My ownRead More experience is that although like others here, I disagree on some political points, I found him surprisingly accessible. After one of the events, he actually chatted with THE PEOPLE afterward in the parking lot, and although I'm a nobody, even I was afforded an opportunity to have a brief exchange with him out there, about an issue I was concerned about. This article in no way resembled my own experience at either of the events I've attended. Just sayin....
ER April 10, 2014 at 01:16 am
p.s. One of the reasons he stayed to chat with THE PEOPLE outside the venue, was that theRead More attendance was so beyond what they had expected, many folks did not get into the building and he felt bad they had come to the event and the place wasn't big enough to hold them all.

genesko, my heart goes out to you. I've done most of this on my own. Until someone actually has aRead More child with a disability, they will never truly understand. I can respect that. Had my son not had the stroke, and the severity of the Autism did not subside, I don't know how I would of made it. CHOP Neurological never could explain how the severity subsided. Just Luck. A trade off if you will. My Son drives, yes, but sometimes his emotions overwhelm him. He has learned how to recognize that, and he knows to call me first. But the Joys are great. He can read other's clues for social interaction, and he is always improving there. But again, a lot of work at home was required. I know depending on the severity of the situation, it may never improve. Regarding the group homes, you are right. 20 year waiting list. I'm reminded of my Late Dad's best friend who's oldest son is Autistic. He is now about 57, living in a home. He was lucky. His parents were very upper middle class. They were able to afford what was needed and was able to see to it. Unfortunately today, many of us cannot earn the incomes of our parents with the health benefits that they had. The best advice I can give you, which I am certain that you know, is to keep your children close. Raise them to appreciate and love each other. So as we go to the great beyond, we may hope our disabled children will still be loved and looked after by their siblings. A burden their brother's and sisters never asked for. But a love and appreciation of life and for life, that perhaps most in our country today seem to lack.
