For the record, I answered Tyler's questions and they have disappeared ... still kinks in this newRead More Patch format I guess. It was a lengthy reply and I don't entirely recall all I've said but will try to repeat and hope this doesn't go away as well. Answers: No. 1, yes, not a bad idea to review the law but that doesn't necessarily mean repeal, just take a look and see if it needs tweaking. If nothing else, this case has opened up a dialogue on this particular law which few of us were even aware of. No. 2, I think it was a mistake for the President to get involved in a racial discussion, I would have thought he'd have learned something from the last time his foot slipped into his mouth when he called the Boston police stupid then offered appeasement with a round of beers and in this case I think his remarks tend to exacerbate the angst already felt, and primarily because I think that as President he has far more pertinent issues to work on: No. 1, while there is a bit of growth in our economy it is so slow and jobs are still scarce and he's not fulfilled his promises on that score yet tho it was part of his platform during his campaign; No. 2, he needs to get personally involved in solving and uncovering the entire Benghazi affair if he is seriously not connected in any coverup; No. 3, he needs to get involved more seriously in the current IRS business, push for honest answers and not let this issue die; No. 4, he needs to sincerely address the peeking into private lives under the guise of protection from terrorism while refusing to recognize true terrorism (case in point, Benghazi); No. 5, he should take a clear look at the implementation of the health care act and not be timid about making adjustments as recommended and needed for smooth transition to such an act, which appears to be chaotic and causing all sorts of problems for providers, consumers, small businesses and even insurers. Further on this, I cannot abide the fact that this act does not apply to him or to Congress as a whole and why this has never been addressed boils my blood. While I know his plate is full I mention these 5 issues because they are current and ongoing and important to me personally. If a person wants to be President he/she needs to be prepared to face and tackle tough issues. He's had a few plusses the past week, his appointments have been approved, immigration act seems to be a win for him, but there he's going, campaigning again and ignoring unfinished business. My interpretation, yes, and I'm certain I'll be picked apart for my opinions but so be it. Now ... if y'all will excuse me, wanna have a look-see at the new British prince and his beautiful parents on TV.

For the record, I've answered Tyler's questions and they've disappeared 3 times ... not gonna exertRead More myself further today. Have also had a Speak-Out on the Boards vanish. I don't know when this new Patch will ever un-kink! (this will probably disappear as well!)

Great photos of this Cookin' on the Common Andrew! It looks like they had plenty of restaurantsRead More participating....can't wait until next year.
Andrew Sylvia April 29, 2013 at 02:37 pm
Thanks, guys!

How to go about setting up a tent/space at the next cooking in the common??
Anna Bucciarelli March 30, 2013 at 11:22 am
Thanks so much for this list ... I am an avid reader so the more titles/authors I can add to myRead More list, the happier I am. I hope this column will continue, it's great to get recommendations.

Hi Sal, Best of luck with this new addition of YoBite and with your new menu. I'm looking forwardRead More to seeing your remodeled Chelmsford restaurant on Saturday.
Sunny March 21, 2013 at 06:32 pm
Will Sal's have gluten-free pizza?

I devoured this book. I was instantly drawn into the characters. Transported with them to all theRead More local haunts that serve as a backdrop. BILLY RILEY, the main character, is simply delightful. Brian- this was a genuine treat !!!
Lynn Marcella February 7, 2013 at 02:40 pm
Life and love in New England! A happy and sad story... fun to read about places familiar and seeRead More some very familiar names! I was honored to be one of the first to read and can't wait for Brian's next story! Great job my friend!!
Susan Mitchell February 7, 2013 at 08:52 pm
This is a beautifully written love story that was impossible to put down. I was immediately immersedRead More in the lives of the characters and felt connected to the story because of all the local places mentioned throughout the book. Can't wait for the next book, Brian.

Great photos Andrew! Thanks for covering this show at the CCA.

What a treat for all who attended the golden Age of Radio! and in our own town! Thank youRead More Chelmsford Center for the Arts and those fabulous actors! My father and I truly enjoyed the performance!

I tend to rake the areas where the most leaves fall, and shovel them into my chcken coops. TheRead More chickens obliterate them into dust, and when it's coop cleaning time in the spring, I have decent fertilizer for the garden. Idoesn't grow as much grass and weeds as does the horse piles-those eventually go back onto the lawn.
Sue Carter October 10, 2012 at 02:54 pm
Raking is a waste of time. Chop the leaves then collect them with the lawn mower and put them on allRead More your gardens. You will have the best earthworms and mulch. Last year I did not use leaves on my perennial beds and the weeds went crazy this year. Other years weeding was minimal - mostly related to thinning the perennials. This year I'll get an early start so a "Snowtober" storm won't catch me off guard!

Folks, it's not what is happening in the library, but in the country. If you don't see the MarxistRead More Socislist takeover of the labor unions, you cannot see the forests for the trees. Violent demonstrations all over Europe, Madison, Wisconsin, the "occupy wall street" sits in all over the country. Where these just spontaneous demonstrations like the attack in Benghazi or have they been coordinated by labor!? There are no coincidences and I suggest that you open your eyes before it may be too late.

Ease up Tom ... it was simply an exhibit of posters of their time, a bit of historical artworks forRead More us to view, enjoy (or not) and give us perspective. Don't drive yourself crazy, don't give meaning to something as simple as an exhibition in a place that lends itself to our ultimate freedom, that of speech without fear of being silenced.
Cee Virtue October 3, 2012 at 01:27 pm
As everyone generally forgets about something in the news within a week, I doubt that an exhibitionRead More of historical posters more than a month before the election is going to influence anyone, one way or the other. However, it's also true that those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it; I think everyone concerned with the direction of the nation over the past decades should certainly take a refresher course in world political history.
