Jonathan, you replied to me, "Donald stil waiting to hear how the Shields family pissed on the Read Moretown for so many years. What exactly did the family do?" If you've been around for the past few decades and have driven by Main Street and Port Boulevard, the answer is obvious. Your question is either rhetorical, argumentative or just irrelevant. As a lawyer, you should know what these terms mean.

Donald I am not a Lawyer and have not lived in P. W. for decades. What I see is that Shields ownedRead Morea house that they did nothing with and left it to rot to the point it was more then an eyesore. The house was a critical danger. I am surprised Bills Auto repair which is next door did not push to have the house taken down years earlier. The only other thing I know about the Shields is that they own a Hardware store and a Plumbing company. This is why I asked you to back up your comment with facts. Am I the only reader who knows nothing more about the Shields or is your statement unfounded? Too many people make comments in the patch and do no supply facts.

The staff cuts at Patch took place after its acquisition in January.

The Patch changed their format and many insightful posters bit the dust. Then the site became hardRead Moret o navigate. The link in the e-mails they send out does not work. There are more stories from all over Long Island and eastern Queens I thought the patch was here to cover LOCAL issues which some times never get coverage by other news outlets both in and on line. Its very sad situation. I loved the old Patch. I also sent Editor Adina Genn pictures of some of the hopefully soon to open new restaurants. Those pictures never were published.

Mole Mole opened and seems to be doing very well. Purple Consignment store is enlarging,Read MoreConstructio n work has started at the long boarded up building along upper Main Street. Where is coverage of the site which once housed the Old Sheilds Home which was said to be demolished in order to build parking for business employees. This was a very important and expensive project which if ever completed might free up some parking along Main Street. Come on how about more important stories in the Patch.

Worse, what the Patch does not cover, the Port Washington News glosses over. The PWN'sRead More"coverag e" of PSEG-LI's mendacious behavior and outright lies to the community and legislators deserves serious investigation, not the whitewashing provided by the PW News. Bob Young's Letter to the Editor was right on point, teed up PSEG-LI officials' continuing shameless and outrageous behavior nicely, yet no legislator takes a swing and drives it home for the benefit of their constituency. Why is that? No guts? Co-opted? Follow the money.

The newly revised Patch seems to be more about advertising instead of covering REAL news worthyRead Moreissu es from mainly our area. By covering new or soon to open businesses we might enjoy more filled store fronts instead of countless shuttered stores. The old Patch with Editor Adinna Genna did far more in the way of coverage then the Patch presently does. I hope someone from the Patch will comment as they do not respond to e-mail to editor whoever that might presently be.

Maybe he/she is not arrogant, but cannot fit the 'huge pickup truck' in a normal space? Why don'tRead Moreyo u show up really early and take the spot? On another note, I was surprised to see that they actually painted in some motorcycle parking spaces, after talking about doing it for over ten years.
