Terry Date is missed, as is current local news

I'm not sure what the new owners of the Swampscott Patch are thinking, but there's little to no reason left to look at the Swampscott Patch. The previous owners had a great editor in Terry Date, and he is sorely missed.

How can being laid off be the right reward for doing a great job? Terry will definitely be missed!

The big question is where do you go for up to the minute news or find out what is going on in all areas of town...schools, town hall, etc. Terry was available to show up at many meetings and get things posted in a news article right away. Now if you advertise anything in the boards section or the blogs, it gets lost right away because of all the other non-Swampscott postings.

I used to look forward to Swampscott Patch each morning, but since Terry is gone there is nothing of value to read. Who really needs to know how many homes are being foreclosed! Myron Stone

I agree. There's nothing to read. Swampscott news is barely covered. All of the concentration is on the police reports. and real estate. Surely something more important must be happening in Swampscott.

I posted the comments below on other articles but they bear repeating: "Huge loss for the community...we'll miss you Terry!" and "...Fred Hammer, I beg to differ with your opinion about Terry. I had the opportunity to work with Terry on several articles/posts in the past and, not only was he always spot on with his messaging, but often added another angle that nobody else had considered." So sad!
