What's up with the news a day late? You guys are going downhill.

I didn't get this Tuesday afternoon......this is the first I'm reading about it. Anyone else get it Tuesday afternoon?
Alana Denise Hicks-Amoroso March 07, 2012 at 01:47 PM
Guess they didn't want too many people to show up!!!!
CS Horn March 07, 2012 at 01:51 PM
Arrived this morning You are welcome.
Sean Welsh March 07, 2012 at 02:01 PM
If you are reading from the daily newsletter, it arrived this morning. The article was posted on Bel Air Patch at 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
Dave in BR March 07, 2012 at 02:37 PM
As Sean said, it was "posted" to the Patch site Tuesday afternoon. I saw it. Unless Sean deems it "breaking news", there isn't an email blast to subscribers.

I guess the complainers don't understand the difference between a story that is posted on the site versus the daily newsletter.
Richard Smith March 07, 2012 at 02:47 PM
Quick to say the site is going downhill although IT WAS posted on Tuesday. Pay attention and read before you comment. Thank you.
James Scott March 07, 2012 at 03:11 PM
So why even bother posting it today?
Richard Smith March 07, 2012 at 03:20 PM
James, It wasn't. Note the date listed March 6, 2012. And also what Sean said, it was posted Tuesday! The newsletter was today. I think that is essentially a wrap-up of yesterdays postings. Maybe it shouldn't have been there, but I bet that is a pretty automatic process.
Rose March 08, 2012 at 02:59 PM
I agree, this isn't news when the newsletter's don't come out until the next day. Start doing things a day earlier then. I've noticed since Brad's been gone we aren't getting as much news as before and definitely NOT as timely.

If any of you didn't notice, it has been posted under the events page for weeks.
