This is me with my friend Scheri, posing with the entire MercyMe band and our newly signed CDs!

While I don't know MercyMe's song "Dear Younger Me", Brad Paisley has an obviously similarRead More song "If I Could Write a Letter to Me". As a science fiction fan I would hesitate changing anything in my past, for fear of losing my wonderful wife and sons, but there are certainly things I've done that experience and greater knowledge and stronger faith have shown me were wrong, and that I now wish I hadn't done. Perhaps the better way to phrase it is that I wish I had someone in my life THEN who had been willing to give me the benefit of THEIR experience and greater knowledge and stronger faith to lead me along a better path. And that leads me to understand that I need to be THAT PERSON for others now! I must explain the hard facts and the truth that will prevent regret and heartache for someone else later. Thankfully, I know that I am forgiven by God, and, because of my own repentance, I am unburdened by those mistakes of my past.

This is very sad news currently many battered women and children live here. Moving downtown will beRead More quite depressing. My deceased father in law grew up here after his father passed away and his mother only kept his sisters. She turned her sons over to the state back in 1937. One joined the navy the other joined the jail population.

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!

Blacks have Operation Rainbow Push and whites have the Klan. Seems even to me.

Title IX A Losing Game For Men .... Stories of teams sacrificed to Title IX, such as James MadisonRead More University's eliminating seven male sports-teams last fall, occasionally make headlines. Yet a new analysis of NCAA data from the College Sports Council reveals the law's disturbing impact on male athletics. In brief, the average number of male teams offered by an NCAA Division I institution fell from 10.2 in 1981-82 to 8.9 in 2004-2005 (a decrease of 14 percent) while the average number of women's teams rose from 7.3 to 10.2 (an increase of 40 percent). Some male sports are going extinct. The number of Division 1 men's gymnastics teams shrunk from 59 to 17 between 1981 and 2004; wrestling teams declined from 146 to 86; and even the number of Division 1A football teams — the villains in the eyes of Title IX's most active proponents — fell from 137 to 117. This isn't good for sports, and it's not good for women. Title IX was sold as a way to ensure everyone has the opportunity to live up to his or her potential, not as a means to decimate male athletics. It's time to reform Title IX and its enforcement so that male and female sports can both thrive. By Carrie Lukas .... http://www.cbsnews.com/news/title-ix-a-losing-game-for-men/
