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.
