Meet your Patch editor — As a web-based news source, we utilize Facebook and Twitter quite a bit.
However, even though I spend most of my workdays sipping coffee and fraternizing with the locals at Alterra or Stone Creek, I felt it was time to make myself available in person on a regular basis.
So, from 5 to 7 p.m. every Thursday I will be holding "office hours" in one of the study rooms at the Shorewood Public Library, 3920 N. Murray Ave. If the room is full we will definitely find a place to chat.
