Patch Homepage Freshens Up For Readers

Minor tweaks will help you navigate your favorite local news site easier.

Don't be alarmed!

We know 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 logo so you can find it more quickly! 
* We moved, well, YOU closer to the top! (Our "shout stream" is now front and center to show all your comments.) 
* And of course we prettified a few things. 

While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same robust coverage of everything happening in your community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We hope you'll let us know what you think of our tweaks. Send me a note or leave a comment below!

I'm not loving it, maybe swap "Events" and "What people are saying"

Should swap the "Events" section with "What People are Saying." The latter is given too little vertical space.

Not liking new format. "comment" section is lost and hard to read at a glance, most time you can only see the headline. Please change it back.
