First, I personally like the entire Speakman family. Barrington used to vote for concretiveRead Morecandid ates and the town prospered became the best place in RI to live. Barbara is correct. If the issue is not subsidized housing or any other new social justice issue you seem to just ignore the will of the people. I personally like you June but your policy's and the way you bully the council meetings IMO is wrong. It's time for the people of RI not to vote D or R but vote concretive.

Council members like Ms. Speakman make me glad I moved out of Barrington.

I agree with you, really well said. It is so sad to see the erosion of innocent community news with Read Moreall the unwanted drama and bad journalism

'm with you. We don't like one blog dominating the whole platform, either. An entirely new platform Read Moreis in the works that will do a much better job keeping local content front and center and solve a lot of the issues that came about when the site was redesigned last year. We're a new company now and in the process of making the business sustainable. You're not the only person that has raised these issues and we're taking them to heart. The new platform will do a better job presenting local news and info separately from national content within the Patch network. As you can see, and as you accurately point out, there isn't much distinction at all and that's not fair to the users. And us editors feel the same way. The pit bull blog isn't there because we want clicks and comments. It's because the platform need to be fixed. If the platform really rewarded people for posting blogs and on the boards, that blog would be drowned out by all the great local stuff happening. But the redesign last year didn't bring about many rewards for users and that is part of what we're fixing now.

Some sanity is returning to the Country. The Ninth Circuit Court recently ruled in Peruta v. SanRead MoreDie go that California residents did not have to show a "pressing need" for a concealed weapons license. Thursday, the Ninth Circuit extended that to Hawaii by overturning a district court ruling and thus making the Aloha State a shall-issue state. The Court said, "In light of our holding in Peruta, the district court made an error of law when it concluded that the Hawaii statutes did not implicate protected Second Amendment activity. Accordingly, we vacate the district court's decision denying [the plaintiff's] motion for a preliminary injunction and remand for further proceedings consistent with Peruta." We're glad to see that even the Ninth Circuit acknowledges that the Second Amendment means what it says.

When the Ninth Circuit makes a decision like this it should give us home that all is not lost.
