IS NEW PATCH IS SCREWED UP?

Maybe they let Khari go too soon. This new editor seems to have screwed up the formatting and its much more difficult to navigate the site. This sucks but, the politicians must really be having the last laugh right now. Who's going to cover  city hall and the elections. Some Novice?

It's been over a week since the Feb 5th City Council Meeting and nothing has been written or posted about what happened!  For this woman to call herself an editor or a reporter is stretching the truth. She is probably more underpaid and overworked than Khari Johnson was....but if you can't do the job and report local news.....then move on Ms. Editor.

PRINCESS, Does the new editor you love answer your emails...because she posted a bogus email address when responding to my concerns. When you call her with a news tip...does she go out and get the story and post it like Khari did? No...because she lives north of the 8 freeway and it's too far to drive to get the news from up there. AOL has sold the people of I.B. down the river to political insiders disguised as the press.

I have not called or emailed her or give her a news tip, but, she is just fine. I am relaxing by the beach at my home here on the mend from being in hospital. I am not an insider, I am just a reader. My interests I have been working at for over 21 years is the care and safety of the elderly and the disabled. That is what I do.

The Imperial Beach Patch used to be a "LIFELINE TO THE COMMUNITY". The recent cuts by AOL and the firing of our Ace Local Reporter and Editor has rendered this website pretty much neutered. The only redeeming value is that some folks are still able to post comments. It's obvious that this website is headed down the crapper and an alternate means of having community dialogue and news needs to be created. We used to get real news from one of them....but now we get fluff from Georgia, Chicago and everyplace except Imperial Beach. Who needs that? Start thinking about what real local news is worth folks. Would you chip in $10 or $20 dollars a year...or donate time...or go report on Council Meetings or local events. It would not be without a lot of effort...but if you want local news and some community dialogue that isn't controlled by hacks and flying monkeys....Don't wait for AOL / Patch or Huffington Post to give it to you. This site can currently only stay relevant by local comments and reporting because we are obviously on our own now. When the editor gives a faux email address and won't return calls...you know it's terminal. She's in Way over her Head. They thought nobody would notice. They figured the Sheeple would continue to follow blindly and believe that local government is being frugal and doing a good job. Someone must have noticed there has been a change....and not for the better. Khari Johnson...if you are out there...."HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU NEED TO DELAY YOUR MOVE TO ICELAND UNTIL AFTER THE LOCAL ELECTIONS NEXT YEAR"? I know the community trusts you and respects you and they would chip in and come up with the money to get real news back! PLEASE!

Typical, pbs reports illegal campaign contributions received by IB is another example of liberal bias and BS. The last campaign in IB was almost 4 years ago. Where are the facts? Put your money where your mouth is. Name names!!! No one who ran for office in IB 4 years ago has been accused or is under investigation.
