Are the teenagers in Norristown the reason you're too poor and stupid to move to a betterRead Moreneighborho od, so your recourse is to whine about them on the internet? I'd say it's the fault of your parents that you're such an abject failure.

Youcanalwaysmove, do you live in Norristown? Why should anyone have to move from their homeRead Morebecause of the growing problem of unemployed, low educated, welfare receiving, degenerates. Yes Beebas posts do come off as whining to a degree, but the fact remains, she has a point. You seem to only post on the articles she comments or starts, so are you one of the people that she is complaining about? Either that or maybe you have a little internet crush on her? I agree with you that folks can move, I did, but they do not have to, nor do they have to put up with the activities of the miscreants that reside in the borough living off the governments tit.

Thank you Boywonder. I bought a place and try to keep it up, but with the kids disrespecting OPPs, Read Moreyou have no choice but to let the police know who is trashing the area. This involves not only kids but their parents who just moved into the area. And now we hear gunshots and other noises. YCAM contributes to the downgrade of Norristown. White flight is going on all the time, but YCAM shows ignorance thinking I am an old white person. ALTHOUGH they have the right to complain about the ignorant adults and kids that ignore fences and the law. Look up the laws about trespassing YCAM and educate yourself.

I stopped buying the paper years ago when I saw how slanted it was in favor of the DA's office.Read MoreDidn 't even see how she was going after someone and ruined his life only to have the allegations dismissed. http://articles.philly.com/2013-11-04/news/43630823_1_civil-case-family-center-ferman

When you have someone constantly throwing trash on your property, you have a right to complain.Read MoreYour attitude is to let the borough go completely down in the dump without trying to make it a decent town. There are laws against trespassing and littering, so the juvies and their parents need to be reported and hopefully fined for their crimes.

My attitude is that the dirt poor, GED having white trash whiners in Norristown should move if they Read Morehate their neighborhood so much, or shut up. I can assure you that you're not changing anything by whining about it on patch. You have a right to complain; people won't listen, and will probably wonder why you don't just clean up the trash yourself without whining. I was visiting my brother out in Plymouth Meeting and saw some kids trespassing on his yard to get to another property. He didn't start freaking out about how the neighborhoods going to crap, but he's also not whiny white trash. People stepping foot on your property happens when you live in a place where people walk.

I do clean up around my area. You assume so much, but you don't contribute to solving the problem.Read MoreI nsults and assumptions show your ignorance. The borough needs to be more involved in solving the trashing of the neighborhood because it's becoming a dump. I can only clean up so much and I'm not going to keep doing it only to see them trash the area over and over. The police may take care of them when they get pictures and videos of the offenders. Maybe a fine or two for littering will make them think before they do it again.

I feel the guys did an awesome job I saw them on my street twice yesterday!!!! You guys are doingRead Morean awesome job keep it up!

I'm not an expert but those prints do not look feline, at all. I'd expect feline prints to be more Read Moreround and the claws not necessarily extended. I'd suspect a coyote. I know I saw one in my neighbor's yard in Jeffersonville. We're near the High School. It was very disheveled looking unlike how you'd expect a pet canine to look. This was several years ago, now. I think if you'd ask the Park Rangers who patrol the Farm Park, you'd have your answer....they see lots of wildlife in the woods in the Farm Park.

I never heard of a cougar escaping from Elmwood Park Zoo. For years and years, there were only two Read Morecougars at that Zoo. Just recently, one of those cougars died. Hopefully, they'll get the other one a companion. In the meantime, if a dangerous wild animal escaped from Elmwood Park Zoo....there'd be plenty of warnings for us.

My boyfriend studies animals and their tracks so I had him look at the pictures and he said thatRead Morethe first picture is a track from a clawed mammal, and the last two are from an ungulate (hooves animal). He also lives in East Norriton and says that the most likely explanation is that a deer came through and a wolf either chased after it or was simply tracking it through there. Regarding the mountain lion hypothesis, he believes that this is too busy an area for them to be in, they need to have a ridiculously abundant amount of food supply year round for a solitary animal to want to stay in this busy area. They wouldn't stumble down into this area once a year for food, it's not practical for a 140lb cat to be interested in your home. The only reason a mountain lion would be there is if it was rabid, and in this case you would not be the first ones to notice it, being as rapid animals are notoriously bold. :)
