New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie arrives at his son's baseball game in a NJ State Police helicopter in June 2011. Patch file photo.
Thomas Paine July 24, 2014 at 06:57 pm
Why is this worthy of reporting or criticism? I am no fan of CC but like any governor, his time isRead More valuable and his safety is important. If anyone has a complaint about this, then please explain to me how President Obama's use of AF1 is not open to similar criticism? I suppose that Govs Malloy and Cuomo have never used a government chopper to travel from Hartford or Albany to some far-off location in their own state or a neighboring state. Oh, wait, private sources are paying for the flight's cost - then how is this a story? This a non-story looking to score partisan points.

Unfortunately the owner is choosing to not to comment. Her stance from what they stated on radio theRead More other morning is she does not want to make this a big deal. But the people who go there every morning as well said this woman goes in and does not say anything to her kid and he runs amok annoying the other patrons. Although the mother is claiming this to be an isolated incident, other patrons paint a much bigger picture and the owner finally got fed up.

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.

Let's be realistic, those who are "unaware" probably aren't the people buying organic inRead More the first place. Lay off Kara - she's the only reason the patch is any good!

tom - I received your other message and I hear you but a small masochistic streak in me has meRead More coming back. This will be my last on this thread because there are no more points to make and no one listening who is open minded.
Mom of two July 24, 2014 at 09:39 am
Yes, run away boys! Thomas, I should have added that I don't dispute the information that youRead More quoted. I read it too and I have seen that info before. My point was just that that was not the new CDC study that you and your cohorts seem to think it is. It's just more false info being thrown around. And who am I Tom? Exactly what my handle says, a mom of two who is sick of this gun culture and wants to see what can be done to change it. That doesn't mean banning or confiscating all guns. It means enforcing the laws we have, strengthening the mental health system, background checks on every purchase no matter where you buy it from, stop glamorizing guns and gun violence in movies, tv and video games and yes I am for the assault weapons ban and limiting high magazine clips because I don't believe they are necessary for responsible gun owners to do what they need to do with them. The less guns and bullets in the world the better. I know you disagree, that's ok. Peace.
Bobbie July 24, 2014 at 10:54 am
and Tom, at least we have a functioning brain. Practice thought processing by counting yourRead More bullets.
