WTF? I really used to enjoy the Patch, they are an example of "stock growth" capitalism. AOL buying to boost their stock, added layers and layers of bureaucracy and caused the patch to lose money. Now they have given it up to a PE firm who slashed jobs, changed the model of local advertising to national sponsors are on track to make a profit this year. The only hope is if they reinvest and pace the growth and addition of content until they find the right speed. For now, we get this http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/19/business/media/patch-sites-turn-corner-after-sale-and-big-cuts.html?_r=0

Anyone that has ever lived here in the summer months know that Thursday night and Friday night traffic for Memorial Day is slow. It is the fault of the lights from the TD bank thru e light.

CPO Rob - How has the traffic been this summer on Friday's and Saturday's getting to LBI? The traffic signal timings have been recently changed and it looks like the traffic is not as bad getting to the island.
