Jim you play a major role in making Patch a mess. If people have a different opinion then you orRead MoreJoe you go on the attack or as Joe says "flush". Freedom of speech and right to difference works on every other Patch but not here. No wonder you and Joe are driving people away.

Tea Party Shill April 18, 2014 at 04:53 PM
Jim, you are the biggest perpetrator of making stuff up and posting it as fact. Just askRead More"Ric hard". What EXACTLY is an "untruth" Jim and what are my "other" names? Lots of talk, but little substance from you. You worshiped the TCC's leaders (when you weren't denying it existed), did you disapprove of their handling of the Old Ranger School sale? If so, I never heard a peep out of you.
Joe Sousa April 18, 2014 at 06:10 PM
Richard uses many names but all the posts are the same babble.

Good morning, everyone! I haven't had a chance to read through all of this yet, but I have received Read Morea few emails that gave me a rundown. :) Bottom line: If anyone is planning a Town Meeting article, that article is up for discussion and criticism. If someone runs a public blog and public news show, that person is conceivably a public figure and should expect some criticism. Can that criticism be more gentle and less attacky? Sure. Should it be? I think at this point on this board, yes, let's keep our criticism on the more civil end of things because we've seen that this board gets out of hand *very quickly.*
Hingle Mc'Cringleberry April 19, 2014 at 10:18 AM
Jim L, how dare you yap at the rest of to pay attention and then spew forth a posting that makes no Read Moresense whatsoever. Jim L with this posting what are you trying to say. No offense Jim L but this is indecipherable to most of us."Sine Mr Arruda has coomented on here and refused to answwer questions aboyt the ibdy park then following the rules as stated by Renee and all the oyjrt unknowns on here anyone can now refer to him as a lar, dishonest, that he lives in a crapshack, no leader of any kind, he refus's to answer taxpayers question etc Since it is noe plain that he watch's this site I wonder how he will feel when he gets this treatment" Would you mind having one of your other writers touch this one up. Did you decide if we should put a for sale by owner sign at he idby park? Mayble onee u canda c frum the hiweigh to Falld Rierrrr?

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.

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 &quot;cha ching&quot; 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.
