Happy New Year 2013; hoping we'll see at least twice as many "feel good" stories in the coming year. Ned

Hi Robert/Patch: This is Marlene Koenig--mkoenigdck@comcast.net. I have been dropped from the Patch mailing list again. Would you put me back on? If you remember, I am the Editor of Steeplechase's newsletter and I see you at Council meetings once in a while. Happy New Year and thanks again! Marlene

Hi Marlene! Happy new year. I can't say that I know why this keeps happening to you. Can you please let our Help Desk know? They can be reached at help@patch.com. Check your spam/junk folder, as the newsletter may be ending up there.
