Hi Napa Valley Patch bloggers, readers, users (again)

If your announcement or blog post has weird punctuation marks today where the apostrophe should be, that has now been fixed. If you could, please go in to the post and click "edit" to replace the &#39 with the correct punctuation. Any probs, let me know. Thanks! Keri

Hi Keri, Thanks for letting us know. I tried to correct the &#39, but it appears to be not working.

Is there any way to remove the blogs from the news page? Blogs are not news. They are opinion pieces, and I would like more news. thanks!

Hi Beau and F: Yes, the &#39 are still there and not going away. I trust that tech people are working on this...Sorry. And as far as the blogs being on the news stream, I can't change that except to keep the blogs mostly at the bottom and the news on top. The new platform is designed to highlight the blogs more than they were before. Occasionally if there is a timely, useful or highly newsworthy blog post I will move it up, but in general the news will be in the first 5 slots and the blog below. Hope that helps. Keri

Thanks again, Keri. Really appreciate your time.

Promoting blogs instead of news makes the Patch less useful. I liked having an alternate news source. Blogger promotion is too much like stroking the egos of local bloggers rather than promoting news and information. It seriously compromises the value of Napa Valley Patch as a news source.
