Well how did the first Friday go? Doesn't the patch do any follow-up stories like they use to? It is sad to see it go this way you have a local publication but hardly has anything pertaining to the area it is named for.

First Fridays was OK, I think the potential weather kept some people away. I went down about 6:00 and there were about 100 people walking the streets. There were a few vendors set up on Washington and St John Streets. There were a few bands playing music and the restaurants were full.

Thank you Mr. Miller for your input as you can see the Patch has done nothing to help promote this.

If you look at AOL Patch it discribes their goals. "Patch reports on everything you need to know about your town, from local government to school news to what to do with your family this weekend." Somehow they forgot their roots.

Yea they forgot a lot of things. They use to be good at follow-up stories and more news that pertained to the local Patch that it was named after. Now it is more or less copy pasted information from all around and sometimes incomplete stories or follow up to important news.
