There have been a ton of layoffs happening at patch because it is not monetizing and making money. Expect more of this going forward.

I to believe we need local people writing. This patch is not like the old one, who wants to read it now. Old news, not interesting maybe because of articles, format? Just happened to read it today.

Aol sold a majority interest in patch to Hale, because it was losing money. Hale fired almost everyone, or fired everyone and hired a small group of editors. All of the patch editors emails were locked the same day. Itried to email Joan the next day without luck. J

To be fair, even with someone far away who is responsible for many sites, a fair number of articles do get posted. I am wondering where they get the news? Is it by monitoring a news service? What is missing right now is any followup, or analysis based on local knowledge. That is why Belmont needs a small newspaper with local advertisers. The Daily journal does a good job of picking up the major stuff, and that is the best source of news that you need to know, but they can only do so much. Foe instance when the city council candidates were having a town hall type meeting to let people know who they were, there was a blowup over what the sponsor, the Chamber of Commerce put in a letter to the public. The Library decided to pull out as the location. It looked like it was cancelled, but it was held outside. You would not have known it was continuing outside if not for the patch. The entire chain of events was available in nearly real time which is valuable.
