2.Saying Goodbye: A new editor will be taking over Malverne-West Hempstead-Lynbrook Patch. Learn more later this morning. Please tell me this is not true. The editor has made the Patch such a great resource to the community.

@Paul Brandel: Tara has been a valuable resource for Malverne, Lynbrook, West Hempstead and Lakeview. Her work ethic and drive to report on every aspect of all four communities will be greatly missed, as will her passion and enthusiasm for hyperlocal journalism. We wish her well in her all the best in her career. Jaime Sumersille Regional Editor, Nassau County

Given Tara’s talent and drive – I believe that one day when she is accepting the Pulitzer Prize we will all be saying "remember when….. "

Tara will be missed as she did a great job in trying to keep equal reporting on the communities to keep all informed. The PAtch seems to be struggling as editions have either closed or merged with others and the coverage can be spotty at times.
