Hi Frank, Patch recently went through a restructuring and our staff is much thinner now. In fact,Read MoreI am the only editor for 15 sites. So by necessity our coverage has become much more regional in nature. We are still making an effort to publish local content, but there's no way we can do it as intensely as we have in the past. I have been encouraging readers to use our Boards and blogging platform to share their own news and thoughts on major issues in town. I always do my best to feature reader contributions in the top spot on the homepage. Feel free to reach out to me anytime at ryan@patch.com. Take care.

The old format of the Patch was easier to read. If you posted on a blog you could request e-mail on Read Moreany replies. News was about West Islip, now I've gotten to the point that I'm not interested in reading it anymore.

I'm sorry Ryan, maybe it's not your call but like ELLA'S post I agree the old format was better.Read MoreThe old Patch was more of a community board. As always I'm sure it's about $$$$$, under staffed, and underpaid.
