It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

Let's look at the numbers. They say 43.8 Million cars cross the bridge each year... Lets divideRead More that in half to only count tolls paid. At $5 per car thats $ 109.5 million !!! every year !!! Do you want to know where it goes ?---- CalPERS --- in lavish retirement & Health Benefits. Both the Union and management are soaking the public. I'm shocked. The next time you pay the toll just think of the guy sitting in his condo in Florida with a great retirement and a health plan that he pays nothing for... That's where your hard earned cash is going. Enjoy !!

That's only one Bridge !

A recent TV news report revealed that 50% of the Toll collected on the Golden Gate Bridge is used toRead More subsidize bus and Ferry services for Marine County commuters. Assuming that report is accurate I do not think that bridge toll should have been increased. I do not believe that tolls should be used to subsidize the use of public transit by people who choose to live in an area that requires them to commute to work? Yes, I think that using public transit is a great idea. Yes, we should use it whenever we can. However, why should I or anyone who may use the bridge occasionally be forced to pay a toll that subsidizes commuters from affluent Marin County? There should be consequences for the choices we make and others should not have to pay for the personal decisions of others. For example, for eight years I chose to live in San Jose while working in South San Francisco. I made that choice because for me owning a home in San Jose was more affordable. Prior to making the move I had to consider all things especially the cost of driving my own car, taking the train etc. Because of my work schedule the train or any other form of public transit was not a viable option. So, I downsized from my preferable car of choice to an economic vehicle with great MPH. I also began to search for people who may want to start a ride-share or drive-share carpool. As our country moves to a more Socialist form of government I expect that we will see even more of this sort of thing. Hopefully, the cost will not get to high. Many years ago I knew a man who once lived in a country that was under Communist rule. I have found that man to be very wise person. One day back when I was a teenager I was complaining about having to pay the consequences for my behavior. It was then that he advised me of one of the changes that he experienced by coming to his adopted nation (USA) and he said that he was particularly happy with it. What he said was, “when you live in a free society you get to make choices in which you will either reap the harvest or suffer the failures of those decisions. I may not always like being held accountable for my decisions but, I do like being able to make them”.

This "mystery" winner should try and stay as much of a mystery as is possible. GettingRead More big-time, mega-celebrity publicity is often the worst mistake that winners make. Anyway, if you're interested, I have a little just-for-fun page which generates my own personal quick pick numbers. As I say, it is only for fun, but it might work - you just never know your luck! Look out for VillaLibra Lucky Numbers if you want to see if you can locate it yourself.

I hiked the slide today. Spectacular! Want to point out something about SamTrans 17. It only stopsRead More at the south end, even though there is a stop for a bus at the north end - figure that out. So you have to get off at the southern end, hike and come back to the same stop.

There's a free Weekend Shuttle called the Devil's Slide Ride in Pacifica that goes to the Devil'sRead More Slide Trailhead from 16 stops in Pacifica. The iPacifica mobile app (http://app.lk/iPacifica) has information about the shuttle and a real-time GPS tracker of the shuttle bus.

This sounds like a great place to take visiting friends and relatives. Going up to the wine countryRead More or down to Carmel is getting a little old. I am glad that they put this area to good use. Once in a great while government does come up with a good idea and this indeed is one of them.

It's Woodside. There are mountain lions. I hope no one with a gun responded to the fool who calledRead More the sighting in to "authorities." If you can't deal with living near wildlife that were there first, take your millions and buy a home somewhere other than Woodside.

One thing that I learned from the media tour I went to on Thursday is that airports are required toRead More have 1,000 feet of clearance at the end of the runway for a aircraft that might overrun the runway. Since the SFO airport can't build beyond there foot print there building EMAS at the end of the runways. Here are some pictures I took at the media tour of the runways on Thursday. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.711865648865622.1073741840.106626399389553&type=1
