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!

Every weekeend on Friday and Saturday nights teenagers come in to shop and fill carts with toiletRead More paper, eggs, plastic wrap, whip cream, glue, cotton balls, spray paint (if their old enough to buy it) and the list goes on. So needless to say it's no longer just T.P. ing. They destory the store make and huge mess and then go destory someones homeor car cause they thinks it's cool or funny. I NEVER did this as a teenager I was raised better and I had more important things to do than waste my time destorying stuff.

What amazes me are the adult parents who continue to condone, support, defend and even fund thisRead More activity. This incident could have ended in a terrible tragedy for all involved and while in no way do I support homeowners shooting guns into the street, enough is enough for many people tired of teens running wild without appropriate character education at home.

I know I’ve asked about the lights for making a left (east) onto Manchester coming from SevenRead More Trails apartments and even going straight. The light is so short, getting 4 cars through is almost impossible. I know you said your engineers agreed that with the increased traffic from Wendy’s created a bad problem, there was only a slight adjustment they could make. However, today, the new U-Gas opened so the traffic will be increasing even more. Most importantly, you can’t turn out of the gas station directly onto Manchester so almost every one of the thousands of new cars will be going to that light each day. They are going to have to make that light longer or remove the ability to turn left from the middle lane. That way, right lane turns right, middle goes straight and left goes left. I still think they’re going to have to change that light.

My mom's dad abandoned her at age 5 and knew almost nothing about ihim Through a stroke of luck andRead More fate, I was able to track down her half siblings, who all live in Sweden (my mom and her father were Yugoslavian born). Confirming he was the same man (who also abandoned his second family), I got a good birth date and place. They even checked with the Swedish Archives to see if he could be traced. They wrote that he no longer existed on Swedish records as of March 1964. Ancestry.com and familysearch.org show no records (death or otherwise) for him either. Is there anywhere for me to go from here? What brought me and my mom's half siblings together is that we were both searching for the man who abandoned both sets of kids. Honestly, we wonder if he was offed and sent off a cliff and that is why there is no official records of him. He was a very bad man.

Most university libraries will allow you come in and use their microfilm. Access to digital resourceRead More are dependent on the contract with the vendor and therefore policies can differ, but I would expect to NOT be able to use them for free. For recent obituaries and death notices you might find NewsBanks America's Obituaries and Death Notices helpful. For older newspapers the St. Charles City--County Library District subscribes to a product called "Access Newspaper Archive" this has some local newspaper digitized and is full text searchable, although it is far from comprehensive. As for out of town newspapers on microfilm, I don't believe you are likely to find much other than major dailies like the Washington Post, New York Times or Wall Street Journal, both cost and space are issues when storing newspapers on microfilm and out of town newspapers simply aren't collected in that way. If you know the exact date of the death you might try contacting the library in the area and see if they will do a quick look up for you. Many libraries will do this if the dates are known. We do. However the less information you have the more likely a library won't. Few libraries have the time or staff to do that type of research, especially for patrons from outside their service area. My advice in that case would be to look for a local historical or genealogical society in the area you are looking. They often do that type of work for a fairly minimal cost. That being do not expect that it will be free. If you have a lot of searching to do in that area consider joining the society, they usually to do look ups for the members as a reduced rate.

Ms. Krueger, Classy guy. I'm a little confused by you post, assuming he at some point came to theRead More United States. You will likely have a difficult time for a number a reasons, the biggest one being that this gentleman probably did not want to be found and took precautions to hide his identity. Furthermore I assume nobody knows where he went after he abandoned the family, which means you don't have a place to begin your search. Given what you do know I'd imagine your best shot at records would be court records. I'd start with the immediate area where you last knew he lived. But other than that I'm not much help.

Lighting can make everything magical, Kalen. Even just some directional lighting with the new LEDRead More lights can accent the walls, ceiling and tables. Those lights can break up a bland and (what shall I do with you Wall). A bolt of Toulle from the fabric store draped hither and fro can bring down the ceiling and soften the look turning from basic to that WOW look.

Steve Ridling, To loose weight, you need to stay within 1200-1800 calories( women 1200-1500, menRead More 1500-1800) and exercise 30-60 minutes atleast 5 days per week. If you are still not loosing weight then consider seeing a dietitian who can closely evaluate your specific calorie needs based on your ht, wt, age, activity level and give you a meal plan more specific to your individual needs. Also some of the outpatient dietitians can measure your basal metabolic rate (it is a measure of calories burned by your body at resting state) to fine tune your daily caloric needs to loose weight.
