Happy Birthday, Hillsborough Patch
It's one year since Hillsborough Patch launched.
It's been a long year in Patchland, Patch fans.
Since the site went live a year ago, we've covered blizzards, hurricanes, elections, sports, historic contract negotiations and contentious layoffs. We've seen proposals before the Planning Board be withdraw, to cheers from one side and dismay from another. We've gotten a mention from the Air Force on Twitter, and had a New York Giant autograph a Patch shirt.
But one thing's clear—there's no way the site would have been successful without our readers' support. Whether it's story tips, complaints, comments (did we every get a verdict on Baker's Treat? Maybe I should borrow a restaurant critic from another cluster for the final word.), and questions, the site would not be what it is today without our readers.
What can we say? Thanks for sticking with us, Patch fans!
Here's to another year, and what you need to know today:
