It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

Jeanne- I'm glad you put this up. I do hope AOL, the owners of PATCH currently considering closingRead More Mercer Isl. PATCH, others, will realize just how important this unique online publication has become to us in our equally unique Island community. JG-

Each year we do a food drive and Halloween party for the MI food bank. And this year, our 16thRead More year, is no different. You can drop food at our school and we will deliver, or if you could take a box to your work or classroom it would help tremendously. I will put a link to more information. We will also have a halloween party open to all kids in the community -- entry fee is a min donation of 5 items for the food pantry. Here is more info on the boxes. http://mercerislandmartialarts.com/profiles/blogs/will-you-help-with-our-annual-food-drive and a posting of the event and food drive can be found on MI patch -- http://mercerisland.patch.com/groups/sports/p/ev--halloween-party-f5bb1f97 We will collect food at locations throughout the community, as well as at our school -- you may see kids out there collecting, give them a thumbs up for their good work.

I think this is great but we could do much more. In our household we produce so little trash, weRead More put the trash bin out every other week. But there is no such option from Allied Waste. In fact there are NO recycle only options from Allied waste at all. Doesn't that send a strong message to the community that you HAVE to have trash? If you compost food and recycle everything else, the only trash you should have in your home is a tiny little pile of plastic.... Here's hoping for a smarter planet.
