There is no doubt Lou was a special person and a wonderful presence at the senior center. She isRead More missed by many.

And...a great video tribute!

I agree with that also. Of all the people I argued with here, she plays by decent rules and is veryRead More fair in the way she debates topics here. The problem around here is many of you think this is your private little blog for people within the ''city officials'' circle and the public is not welcome. It's ''The Patch'', and part of The Huffington Press...and it is for everyone.
CJ August 14, 2012 at 02:51 pm
And who would be left after that? You often show up out of nowhere in these blogs with your one lineRead More blog preacher comment. This is a blog, Phillipe, and your rules you seem to apply to them are not the rules at all. The only rules that matter are the HP/Patch ones. If reading discussions here that get heated upset you, then why even be here? I think it is important to note that even though many here have engaged aggressively, I have not seen anything get deleted. How can you fault that? isn't that why these blogs are present..to allow viewpoints to be tabled. You win some, you lose some...and then you don't care if you win or lose...you go on to the next one and put the past behind you. But telling people they should use email makes you the blog police, which you are not. I think virtually all of us here hate it when censorship has to be used.

I can see I am outnumbered here. No problem, and I will respecfully back off...but I knew what theRead More reaction was going to be before I ever wrote anything in defense of Jay and his Dog...but I did it anyway. I read the new article out today on this topic and saw the list of things wrong with the dog, and I have to admit it really bothered me to hear what the dog had wrong with it. I hope if Jay gets his dog back, that he takes better care of it now. I also saw Cherlenes pictures in that new Patch article, and I ask any of you how you can look at those pictures and not be hurt by the thought of taking Jay's pets from him. Maybe the good that come out of this is if Jay has read any of these comments and may be positively effected by it in a way that will help the man rise above this and better for it. If people think I took up the wrong battle, then maybe I did. I have not been able to quite put it into words what bugs me about all this. Maybe I just am upset to see Jay, a fellow veteran, ''forced'' to be separated from his pets and can't get past that mental block for the sake of Dreamer. It obviously is an easy delima for many here, but not for me. When you start taking peoples pets away from them, where do you stop in that decision process? Do you leave it in the hands of mean spirited people with mixed and questionable motives? Honestly, would any of you want to be a dog owned by Trace? mtober...yes....Trace...no.

Hello everyone! I just spoke with Jennifer Smith (Steve's wife)! She wants to thank everyone whoRead More came out and to let everyone know that their goal was accomplished today. Jay's boat is anchored in the bay waiting for him when he checks out of the VA hospital. I'll have video and interviews on the site tomorrow. Thanks everyone, Cherlene

Kudos to Steve Smith and his team!! Steve Smith also told the Gabber... "I hope that this manRead More never gets back on the boat," Smith, who organized the salvage operation, told reporters. "I don't want to disparage anybody, but the owner of that boat was not a responsible boat owner." It would appear that Mr. Smith confirmed what many others have been saying for some time.
