It is a holiday some celebrate in exchange for not celebrating Easter. Some people celebrate both Read Moredays. As much as a lot of people want to promote "earth day", it is really not celebrated at all. They can pretend all they want. It is still not a real holiday and no one celebrates it.

Those references are the signs of abuse.

Dear Marcus, there are many different drugs used for a variety of problems. In my opinion, mostRead Morepsyc h drugs should be used in rare cases, and then under supervision. How can an emotionally or mentally sick person be left to self medicate? Is that reasonable and responsible? I don't think so.
Marcus April 23, 2014 at 07:28 PM
It's reasonable and responsible to expect doctors trained to deal with mental illness to assign the Read Morecorrect drugs for each situation. With each year, research shows us that conditions that seemed hopeless to cure can be cured or at the very least controlled. However, Psychiatry, just like the rest of medicine, is not precise and there will be those who either don't take the right drugs or don't respond to the prescribed treatment. That leads to your examples of terrible incidents (though assuming someone is homosexual is OT). But we do need mental health therapy. it's the only way we can reach out to those who need help. Yes "Big Pharma" is too intrusive in Psychiatry but I would say it is too intrusive to the whole of medicine. Doctors are trained to turn to western meds too much since that is there only training. But relying on other techniques might also be folly.

Please alert Eagle Rock High! The same sort of scam happened at the business next door to us, andRead Moreth e kid said he was from E.R. High, but was not. He also stole 500$ cash in about 45seconds. Please be aware. Kathleen @ Owl Talk Clothing

No news?

Didn't attend meeting personally, reports indicate nothing clearly explained by district only thatRead MoreV elasco is being investigated. Opponents of Velasco spoke and provided facts. Supporters spoke but support mostly emotional not factual. Some, perhaps family members, suggested racism involved in his removal. Being of his ethnicity, I will say I do not believe that is the case. Having retired during his riegn I can safely say if there was any racism or discrimination, it was felt by employees from him and expressed to me as a former Chapter Chair/advisor. Wish I could say more but it is not allowed by the system.

Divine Saviour Catholic Church brings in 2 big tour buses at 4:00AM. They let them idel for aRead Morecoup le of hours and the people going on their trip are yelling and screaming. This kind of behavior is unacceptable. This is a quiet small neighborhood in Cypress Park. They should not be bringing in buses and making a lot of noise in the middle of the night. 4AM???? Yes. Bad behavior by these church members is nothing new. The bad behavior contintues . . .

Call Northeast and ask for your Senior Lead Officer (SLO).

CJ, send them over to Divine Saviour Catholic Church, 610 Cypress Ave, 90065. There is plenty ofRead Morer oom in their parking lot and around the block where the church is. Send them over!! They are welcome there!! They love noise!! They will enjoy these community members. Just give them the address.

What???? The Eagle Rock Patch not keeping the community informed..I'm shocked..not really.
Kiki March 11, 2014 at 06:42 PM
I agree with you Ron, Ajay Singh updated the patch with events going on in the neighborhood.

It is better ride on side walk thanks

I drove from Linda Rosa to the 2 today, my average speed 20mph. Its time to start licensing cyclist Read Moreso at least they understand how to ride in traffic, which side of the road to ride on, riding 3 wide so they can chit chat may be a bad idea. Whats the deal with grown men on bmx bikes on the sidewalks? I had one of those when I was 12.

Marcus March 11, 2014 at 01:39 PM
I can't wait for locals with passionate opposing views commenting on blogs about making cherryRead Morepies, and how to steam clothes effectively. So exciting! Seriously, I do hope 'Patch' returns with some form of journalistic editorial.
