Maybe this will answer some questions. On August 9, 2013, AOL announced it would be closing many Read MorePatch sites and laying off staff at all levels.[15] On an all-staff conference call, AOL CEO Tim Armstrong announced that the number of Patch sites will be reduced from 900 to 600.[16] Creative Director Abel Lenz was also publicly fired by Tim Armstrong at that time.[17] On January 15, 2014, AOL spun off Patch and sold majority ownership to Hale Global.[3]

The minute they changed their format a while back I began to hate it. I agree with Chris Smith.Read MoreThe re are newsworthy stories that never even make it onto this site that you end up hearing through the grapevine and investigating on your own. It's tough to navigate and has more stupid junk than Smithtown news. Most days I delete it without even reading it. Patch, go back to your old ways or just go away!!

Sounds like the driver should be more than fired! BTW. Use the prnt/scrn button on your pc keyboard Read Moreto take a pic of the screen then save it as a jpg on your desktop. You can also open the pic up with paint to crop your personal info.

Parents everywhere should be made aware of this. Not because it happened in Smithtown, but because Read Moreit HAPPENED! For months, elementary children were terrorized on a bus, and not one child had reported it to a parent or school official? We need to keep our children safe and speak to them about dangerous situations, and the importance of reporting. Shame on you Smithtown Central School District for keeping this atrocity done to children quiet, and not using this example to help parents use this as a teaching lesson to all children. We need to protect our children, not the criminals that abuse them!!!!

Just make sure the allegations are true. The bully(ies) on the bus may not be the driver.

Argile;...Please carefully re-read the story......The town is REQUIRING the contractors to take a 4 Read Morehour break, & not tell them to do so.....And also not paying them.
