Its a cycle folks; been going on for thousands of years, maybe longer. Check reports on theRead More Greenland ice cores. They show the present warm-up has peaked and a very slow cool down has started. In ten to twenty years the same global warming pundits will be screaming "Ice Age coming"' gimme a grant.

How 'bout the dog's owner that was stabbed? How's that fund raising going?

It may be less cruel to put the dog down. It sounds like he will be in a lifetime of pain and thatRead More isn't fair to him at all!

The alleged stabber and arsonist -- Yohanna Estrella -- should be forced to pay for Papi the dog'sRead More medical bills.

For the sake of the argument, let's put aside all the health risks of second hand smoke. I am aRead More non-smoking adult who will tolerate a smoker's weakness if I must. I just can't understand why a smoker would subject an innocent child or beloved pet to such discomfort. And why would anyone defend a smoker's "right" to do so?

If you have to have that cancer stick just take it outside so pets and children can breathe withoutRead More gagging or wanting to vomit. Plain and simple

I'm a non smoker but what really bugs me is today's view on smokers. If I wanted to smoke a legalRead More product in my own home then I have every right to do so. And gee thanks for the memo, pets breathe the same air we do. I never would have figured that out on my own.

New Bedford has a CSO system . Combined Sewage Overflow . The water in the streets may not be justRead More rain water and there should be some caution with shellfish after a storm like this. New Bedford has major sewer overflow pipes. At the end of Coffin Avenue major sewage spills into the river during heavy rain along with industrial waste. Water coming up out of street drains in lower locations may not be just rain water New Bedford Combined Sewage Overflow & Up To Ten Inches Of Rain - http://www.newbedford-ma.gov/public-infrastructure/wastewater/combined-sewer-overflows/ Combined Sewer Overflows Much of the City’s system is a combined system, the function of which is to collect sanitary flows and stormwater runoff and convey them to the interceptor system. Combined flow in excess of the interceptor capacity is discharged to receiving waters by the regulators through CSO outlets. The City presently has 35 permitted CSOs, most of which activate during rain events. (Three additional outlets have been eliminated through separation or abandonment). These outlets discharge to Clark’s Cove, New Bedford Harbor and Buzzards

Storm impact way overrated. NOAA plays it safe.
Serves You Right July 4, 2014 at 07:38 pm
Better safe than sorry, but in all honesty....this storm is doing everything they predicted it wasRead More going to do. It followed the predicted track, and the rainfall totals are so far pretty much right on the money. What's so overrated about it?

Forewarning is great but to do this story as a headline on July 6th, days after it happened is notRead More what a "newspaper" should do. Who edits this site?

Thank you Charlene for posting, there are also higher instances of pets drowning during this weekendRead More as well. Between the heat, fireworks, toxic substance ingestion, and drowning, it is best to leave dogs in a safe area at home in the A/C preferably in a crate with access to a water bottle. Vermont Naturals makes a great product called "Calming Treats", it is available at PetLife. Also soft music or a TV running in the background can also ease anxiety. If you need additional help, please consult your veterinarian. I have never had luck with Thundershirts for our dogs in rescue, but the T-Touch wrap seems to work much better. You can Google for more information.
