Is it just me or are you guys reporting on restaurants that aren't in Norcross/Peachtree Corners? I personally don't care if a restaurant in Stone Mountain gets a bad report. Chances of me eating over that way are slim to none. Can we just stick to our City/general area, i.e.., Dunwoody?
Steve Rausch February 17, 2014 at 07:32 AM
Patch is no longer LOCAL, we're only getting regional crap that nobody cares about because it is easy and cheaper! Too bad all local advertisers are dropping Patch like crazy just as local folks have dropped reading this garbage.
Steve Jones February 18, 2014 at 07:44 AM
Steve, your are correct. I have just unsubscribed from the patch. I just do not have time to wade through news from other communities. I hope their advertisers notice this too...

I'm so disappointed in The Patch. I liked the LOCAL news on the OLD Patch so much better than this sad joke the new owners have made it into. I still visit this site only out of habit now, and I'll eventually drop it altogether because finding true/useful local news here has become like searching for a needle in a haystack. Do a Google search on the Patch and you'll find some interesting reading on how it went downhill so fast.
David B. Manley February 20, 2014 at 06:35 PM
Perhaps if there was enough outcry, especially here on Patch and by contacting the new Patch owner, Hale Global, we could get Judy Putnam reinstated as editor. This already has happened at one Patch in the Northeast. See, http://www.bizjournals.com/boston/blog/mass_roundup/2014/02/patch-is-hiring-again.html?page=all
