The Patch I'm subscribed to is supposed to be Kent, OHIO. So why is the news from Kent, WASHINGTON?  It's really gone downhill since the changes. I will give it another week or so before I unsubscribe.

Sue: I agree... Kent Patch has gone downhill since the changes. It's too watered down. Too vast. Too much info that no one in Kent really cares about. It started on a good Local premise and now .... it looks like Patch Everywhere USA. Generic and diluted. Toss all the ads and inserts in the middle of a story and one has to go on a hunting trip to read the end of an article. Waste of time. I've always enjoyed local voices and local comments. It made the site newsworthy to me. I think most readers have found other places to go.

Totally agree! Most info is diluted, has the inserts or just not applicable! Recently clicked on the " companies hiring around Kent" and the holidays for a relative....got 12 listing ALL OUT OF STATE! I want Kent news, and local surrounding only. This is no longer worth coming to.

Teresa and Stanley are we the only ones that do not appreciate this new and unapproved version of The Patch. This is horrible, there is nothing in there about Kent. I worked on Issue 3 and 4 let us work on Issue The Patch.

I was the original poster. I was getting ready to unsubscribe as of today. It's just gotten stupid!

Hey folks, the new Patch is great. Where else could I have found out how many divorced women live in my census tract!
