The Patch is a waste Internet space!!

What is a story about Meadow Park and its Landscape Committee (in Novato) doing on the front page of the Pinole-Hercules Patch. There are local issues in Pinole-Hercules that will never see the light of day, but we are graced with "copy" from other communities. I'm sure the Meadow Park issues are compelling in the Novato Patch. But not so much here. Thus the basic failure of the Patch is once again boldly evident. No local reporter, no local news. Sorry, but this Patch SUCKS.

I believe what you are talking about is a reader blog, rather than anything posted by a Patch staffer. When you see the tag "Blog" in front of the post, you will know that is from someone in the community rather than an editor. There is a disclaimer on those at the bottom on the posts. Feel free to send your Pinole Hercules story ideas to me at autumn.johnson@patch.com. I cover about 16 Patch sites on my own so any tips on great local stories are always appreciated.

The Patch is an important forum for local News in Pinole. Please take Autumn's recommendation and provide some citizen journalism.

Hmmmm. That sounds like a whole lotta BS BS to me.

@Salt, you would have to ask that blogger. I don't handle any of the blog posts on our site. I would imagine they are just trying to spread the word far an wide and may not have a strong grasp of the East Bay geography.

Autumn, are you in the habit of editing the Comments? Seems like one of mine got cut short... Corporate goons got you censoring the Patch?
