Thanks Michelle. But with all due respect, you not being a local prohibits you from reallyRead Morecovering SP or any other area you are responsible for. You can re-post articles until the cows come home, but a distant editor has no sense of the community they are trying to cover. You didn't know that massage parlors were a hot button for SP, so how would you have known to re-post this? You didn't know it was a hot button, therefore you didn't repost it much less even know to look for this article. Furthermore, you can't canvas the town for local interest stories. You can't go and meet with residents and local business owners to research and write about. You simply aren't here. This is no knock against you. Patch's way of covering local news is garbage (i.e. scour the internet and repost other peoples stories & recipes). Great initial idea, but the way they have elected to go about it will lead to their demise. I only posted the link because I hoped there might be a few readers left and they would recognize the importance of the article. Michelle, thank you for what you do - you are working with what you've got. Again, not a knock on you. This 'business model' is for shi*.
