Daily Deals debuts Tuesday on GazetteNET

I don't know if it's me, my computer or what, but I usually have difficulty getting the gift certificate web page. I've been looking for it for a half hour tonite, and have the daily special, but still do not find the Gift Certificate Store. What's wrong? ...(full comment)

Nah, that's too much. But maybe we can make 9/12 Teach "Freedom" How to Read Day? Oh, also, you know the articles on The Onion are parody too, right? And that Stephen Colbert is not actually a right wing pundit? Did I just blow your mind? ...(full comment)

Oh Pasqual, You're so smart and superior. Everyone should be like you! In fact, I think 9/11 should be "Pasqual Day" in your honor. ...(full comment)

One varsity team? Boys and girls don't each have a varsity team? Or is this letter only about the boys' team? ...(full comment)

Elizabeth Rockett Volkmann: Let yourself get bitten by the Northampton High soccer bug

It's so hard to tell when people are being sarcastic online. Especially when so many people's views have become a parody of themselves. I am not 100% sure if "freedom" realizes that this column was a parody, and is trying to be cute. Or maybe they really have such a short attention span that they didn't get to the punchline at the end. Given "freedom's" previous posts, I sort of doubt that they have the brain power for the former. But I really hope I'm wrong. ...(full comment)

Oh please, casting stones are you? Everything you spew as well as the "good" doctor in his articles spew are nothing but disdain towards our president and those of us who voted for him, which by the way is the majority of Americans, not only once but twice. Stop being a sore loser, and support our great country as we have had to with the past president before him. ...(full comment)

So if you disagree with Obama you are a confederate racist? Typical liberal hatefull garbage. We hear this like a broken record. ...(full comment)

I entirely agree with the opinion expressed in this article, but I would like to make one correction. Access to medical marijuana is not by "prescription." Doctors certify patients to use medical marijuana by writing a certification letter, which is a brief statement that the doctor believes that the possibility of benefit outweighs the possibility of harm for marijuana use to treat a debilitating condition. This is not a prescription. A prescription, which you take to the pharmacy, is written under a federal prescribing license, and federal law does not allow for marijuana use. There is a lot of confusion, even among medical people, about whether marijuana is prescribed. It is not prescribed. ...(full comment)

Editorial: Medical marijuana for students is hardly reefer madness

The blame does not lay with Amherst's emergency services; they have to respond to all calls. The blame lies with the irresponsible students and the ineffective rules and policy makers of the college. Simply put, there's needs to be zero tolerance of this behavior and full accountability. Instead, the residents will pay the price for the students ill behavior, while those who cause these serious exploits of bad behavior will get a slap in the hand, and do it all again. ...(full comment)
