He's no hero. He violated the law and did it for his own self promotion.

No he did it because that useless trash magazine Rolling Stone tried to portray that scumbag kid asRead More a victim and a hero of some sorts. He wanted all to see the real scum that this piece of s*** communist puke really is. I applaude his choice to publish the pictures. Displinary action? Maybe? But a forced retirement over that situation? Absolutely not. Mass. State Police should be ashamed of themselves.

I do deal with the delays in the winter while waiting outside and ride with all the diverse people. I would be a short walk to the Green Line stop at College Ave, and still don't think it's worth the money. Would be convenient, but as stated above, would rather have the money go to improving the existing system (so we don't have cold and hot weather delays) or to expand in areas much less served than ours. Good day sir.

There isn't a day that goes by that I am not thankful for our firefighters and police. EspeciallyRead More in Easton, where they saved my life, after I was in a horrible car wreck. Very sad every Time I hear one has fallen. This time it's 2! They save us every day and it seems too many folks just take it for granted. Events like this in Boston are very disturbing. God bless these men who ran in to save lives. They had to run in while everyone else had to run out. I hope these men's families are well cared for. If not, then let's make sure they are.

So Bosotn Fire just reported that the fire was started by welders working next door at 296 BeaconRead More St. Welders, working without a permit, and no aplication on file for a permit, so no fire detail there during the work being done, on a day with 50mph+ winds. Which I'm sure would not have been allowed on that day had a permit tried to be pulled because of those winds. So our brothers died that day because some company and building owner we're to frigin ignorant to follow laws. Absoulte BULLSHIT.

Why is affordable housing put anywhere? It is fundamentally a political deision, using the toolsRead More Progressive pols have crafted to trample on the rights of some, and favor their pet constituencies. - - - The vote of someone living off the government is a whole lot cheaper to get than the vote of a successful businessman. All you have to do is offer them more freebies. Case in point, it worked for Obama in Ohio in 2012. - - - As to the road work, construction does take some time, but Public Works projects take far longer than private sector jobs. Remember the Big Dig? They are most often done by connected contractors using union workers. Those same union workers in turn support the pols who have the jobs in their gift. This incestuous relationship, between mostly Democratic pols and the unions, public and private, is at the root of the mess we're in. - - - I'm unconvinced Belmont needs a roads commission, or what the mission of suh a commission would be. The Town roads are theoretically in the purview of Peter Castanino, who takes direction from the Seletmen and Town Meeting. That's where the real problems lie. - - - TM and the Board of Selectmen have a penchant for their own pet projects. The renovation of the Underwood Pool, for example. Working with CPA money, former Seletmen Paulsen and Solomon, deceitfully want to use about $2,000,000 of CPA money, already collected from the Property Tax surtax, to reduce the APPARENT cost of the pool work. It is a lot easier to sell a $2M boondoggle than a $4M plus one to the voters, most of whom are not really paying attention anyway. - - - The hard questions are rarely asked. For example, the pool user ommunity is under 700 families, from the last data I've seen, out of roughly 11,000 families in Town. That makes the pool redo a Speial Interest project, beyond any doubt. - - - Ask yourself, before the Town eletion, is the pool redo the kind of thing I REALLY want my tax dollars wasted on? - - - It is an unmistakable indicatrion that the pool IS, in fact, a Speial Interest project... If it were such an obvious benefit to all, there would not me the massive pro-pool ampaign all over Town. When was the last time you saw a big advertizing campaign for something in demand? Are Superbowl or World Series tickets advertized ? NO! Advertizing is used to sell LEMONS to the gullible! - - - Frankly, I'd much rather see the money, OUR MONEY, go to something useful TO ME. Perhaps that might be road repair.... NOT the kind of wasteful road repair all too common in Town where a very few roads are made fit to be the Grand Mall leading to the Taj Mahal, but solid, basic repair. - - - These are choices. Do you want your money spent on expensive frills, while the basic infrastructure rots,? I say NO. Those choices will be made by the pols you elect.
Viking March 30, 2014 at 06:50 am
On the subject of roads -- Have you noticed that some of the side streets that have been repavedRead More seem . . . narrower? I came across this just recently, in the long report from the Vision 21 Committee: Ideas for the future: • Suggestion to formalize a policy to reduce overall pavement marginally (e.g. by 3%) as we rebuild streets and sidewalks, repave driveways, etc. – many streets and intersections are overly wide – this is happening to some extent now as road reconstruction projects are on-going – over time such a policy would reduce impervious surface and improve storm water management. Thanks to these brilliant know-it-alls, it is sometimes now impossible to get by when two cars are parked on opposite sides of the street. But never mind, that somehow amounts to storm water management (which was never a problem on most streets anyway). And note the reference to driveways. Do they mean private driveways, many of which are already so narrow that we are stepping into the neighbor's yard or onto our own petunias when we exit our cars?
Waverly Watchdog March 30, 2014 at 11:12 am
@Viking- No, I'd not noticed that, but it is no surprise at all. The Enviro lobby has been workingRead More for decades to 'calm traffic' and other code words. - - - Their real obective is to make modern transportation so miserable that people are fored to 'choose' more primative alternatives, like walking or using bicycles. - - - For example, Concord Ave had bike lanes added some years ago, reducing it to one lane in places. The inevitable result is more and bigger traffic jams... "Mission Accomplished" Will Brownsburger !! - - - And it IS Brownsburger as he drweamed up the Vision 21 nonsense. We would all be better off if Brownsburger and his Progressive clique went away... perhaps to a community like "The Villages" where everything is controlled by local government. Belmont doies not have a Master Deed or Condo Regulations. It is way past time Town government stopped behaving like an condo board with ultimate power over everything.

Israel is Israel and the United States is the United States. They really can't be compared, at all.Read More It's ridiculous, what they're doing with Homeland Security regarding the Boston Marathon. Ben Franklin had it right when he said "Those who give up liberty for a modicum of security deserve neither." I also might add that Israel and the United States are two totally different places. Israel has had their security policies in place for a reason (not withstanding their inappropriate and brutal occupation of West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem, which they have to end, in order to survive.), plus they're also a much smaller country than the United States. The United States, on the other hand, has never had enemies right smack on its borders, is much, much bigger than Israel, and we're being stupid by putting up security that's totally unnecessary.

There should be more laws against these predators period. The judicial system needs to getRead More priorities straight , instead of sentencing kids struggling with addiction to house of corrections, while a level 2 sex offender gets off on a personal recognises and walks back out to rape another little boy or girl. And your handing out sentences to KIDS who needhelp, why not treatment? A majority of which are people's children in this town alone never mind the surrounding towns. Yes absolutely there should be more laws for sex creeps, instead of treating them like babies and letting them walk on sex abuse charges when a person with an addiction problem or recovering from addiction , such as myself, if I shoplifted, there's probably a better shot at me going away than some disgusting pedophile. What is that? Seriously people, society is nuts, what is it the poor pedophile is a GREAT Candidate for PROBATION?
