Jennifer, maybe you could be a reporter for the Patch in your spare time. I would think that being an internet news source such as the Patch that it must be difficult to have reporters on the street such as the NH Register. They would probably welcome your help. Just a thought.

Haha very funny... Actually... I certainly know I'm not alone in feeling that the Clinton Patch has fallen short lately with their local news coverage!!

Why is it the Patch does not have the name and the local news station does?

I agree, why is the last obituary for locals dated the 16th of Dec., last year. I know we have lost quite a few residences since then

Why did the Patch stop reporting on local arrests in the fall? There used to be weekly police blotters posted all the time and then suddenly they stopped appearing. It seems pretty unfair to those people who had their names dragged through the mud before this change occurred and were innocent until proven guilty; now if someone is arrested in Clinton there is no public record outside of the courthouse and police report. If this is the Patch's policy moving forward then all prior police blotters should be taken down; if not, then please post all arrests that have occurred since this change to be fair.
