They have fired all local staff and now only repost national mainstream stories. They are depending Read Moresolely on reader contributions and postings regarding local events. It's become a run your own Patch, basically. Such a shame. Some of the former local editors have gone on to try to launch their own local sites.

Just Breathe is almost exactly right. We're able, occasionally, to post some news that isn't posted Read Moreby readers, and we do have local real estate information from Zillow. It is certainly a pared-down operation, and that's because the original investment subsidizing the news gathering ran out before enough advertizing revenue was flowing in. We can afford what we're doing now, and we hope to do more later. We still have readers, and we'll try to provide as much local news as we can. And it breaks my heart that I can't provide readers coverage of local high school graduations. Ellington-Somers Patch is still a good place to post local announcements, whether it's about a concert, fair, lost dog or a tag sale.
