No, there is no more detail? If so, that means that in all those words above, you were simplyRead Moresayin g: "I'm not happy. Things should change. Anyone who disagrees doesn't want economic development." Is that it? Next time, please don't hesitate to copy the sentences in the quotes and post that instead. It will save all of us, including you, a lot of time. Without further detail, the only possible conclusion is that you've got a lot of complaints, but no real ideas.

Jo Jo the Delete Monkey April 16, 2014 at 05:49 PM
Danielle: If I remember your earlier comments correctly, you do not have the power to restore posts Read Moreif the author deletes and then republishes the same blog. One of our frequent bloggers has made a practice of doing just this. There's no point in calling you "Pollyana" when a certain Simon Legree has figured out how to thwart even the people who control the medium. There's a new blog post out there now entitled "Does Tiverton really want economic development ?" I made the first post in which I asked a question with no insults, etc. Let's see a) if my question is answered and b) if, after a while, all posts are "flushed" to use the author's word.

Oh, and concerning the new Patch platform coming over the summer, I have a few comments: 1) AnyRead Moreesti mate provided by systems developers must be taken with an asteroid-sized grain of salt, and 2) If you want my advice, simply restore the old format that you used to have. The work is done, it's fully tested, all you would need to do is redploy the code. Raise your hand and suggest that at next Monday morning's staff meeting. You'll be the hero of the new investors.

There are also plants you can put in you garden that will ward off pest and such that other plantsRead Morea re susceptible to. Marigolds are great for attracting bee's for pollination.

My mother puts beer in a saucer around the garden and slugs go to it and drown and die because of the salt in it. (Salt dissolves slugs really cool) lol

Hingle, He is a joke. He doesn't want anyone bringing up his criminal past, or reminding him ofRead Moresom e of his own comments (following school buses, saving millions, etc.). To be blunt, Joe really doesn't matter, that's why he is so angry. Even the Town Council slapped him down.

Jim, You mean like Joe never owning anything he has done? How many times did he deny having aRead Morecrimi nal record? He was lying! Now he attacks the fire department with no proof.

When you take an EMT course and you have completed it you are in "my opinion and others" Read More35 % of what it takes to become a good EMT. The remaining % will come from experience in the field and that goes regardless of public or private service. The majority of EMT's will find employment with a private service for several reasons like, lower pay and high turnover. When I say high turnover I mean as an EMT becomes more experienced he or she will usually go to some form of a municipal service with higher pay and benefits. Besides less experienced EMT's learning on you at a lower pay scale you need to ask what else has been purchased or acquired by for profit companies, equipment, vehicles (definitely) etc.. This is how for profit companies, you or I and anyone else would keep cost "cha ching" down to increase profits. Another problem with this type of system is frequent turnover of EMT's along with EMT's being constantly shifted around so they never really get a good understanding of roads, buildings or the frequent callers for medical aid and the specific problems they may have.

Patch editors (me, for the most part!) do our best to restore all comments that do not violate theRead MoreT erms of Service. Sometimes I can't restore comments because there are personal attacks or name-calling. But I do my best to get all comments back on the site in a timely manner. The only comments I can't restore are comments that are deleted by the author.
