Under the heading of "News" you're now reporting what happened on Patch. Do you realize that this article falls directly above (in the listing in the leftmost column on the main page - in this case, Shorewood's main page) yet another article similarly rehashing what happened on the site?

I have no pinterest in this. (That was a pun) By the way, the original blog on that latest fad (pinterest) read like an advertisement for using yet another time waster on the web. I have wasted enough time rehashing this and won't be doing it again. Once is enough for me.
