Welcome to the "Refreshed" Easton Patch

We've updated the website's design to make it more fun and friendly.

No, you're not losing it! Patch looks different today. We did a quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture. For those keeping score:

  • We tweaked some words in our navigation bar to save space (e.g., "Traffic & Gas" is now "Commute").
  • We moved the weather icon next to the Patch masthead so you can find it more quickly!
  • We moved, well, YOU closer to the top! (Our "shout stream" featuring your comments is now front and center on the homepage.)
  • And of course we prettified a few things. 

While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same hyperlocal coverage of everything happening in Easton. 

We hope you'll let us know what you think of our tweaks. Drop me a line at tom.coombe@patch.com or offer a comment below. And, as always, be sure to like us on our Facebook page (if you haven't already), so you can interact there as well!

That was a shock, Tom. Took a short time to learn, but I really liked the time stamp on the comments; any chance to bring them back? Overall grade on the redo...B+... that means it was worth it.

I can let our people know. We'll see... I'll take a B+

Hey, did we do away with leaving comment without an article? Like when i tell Pamela Porter when someone passes away?
Tom Coombe (Editor) March 30, 2012 at 12:48 PM
We did. Apparently it was a feature that not a lot of people used, company wide. Even on this site, I think only you and Pamela -- and occasionally Christina -- took advantage of it.
