We really look forward to your excellent coverage of local youth sports activities. But the police blotter is a family favorite. We empathize with the hard work Foster City police do on a daily basis, yet I have to admit we grin, all right we giggle, at the occasional amusing report. Our family in Bozeman, Montana has proudly claimed to have the silliest police blotter ever, but I sent them a few from last Thursday's FC Patch. They admit we have a contender. Seriously though, someone must have sent the Patch to me originally and I have since sent the link on to numerous friends and family, especially those with high school age athletes. It has been very well received by all. Keep up the good work!

Thanks! I'm glad Foster City has a funny crime blotter rather than a scary one :)

You know what I am going to say. My favorite is your Tuesday's Eugenia Budman's column, my lunch time read . She always finds something to ponder about... Cheers.

I love every feature on Patch. I can't pick just one. I like the local news, crime blotter (a two time felon was picked up right outside my house and didn't know it until I read about it on Patch.) I love the recipes and the fact that we can all chime in on the articles, restaurants, recipes and other. So I guess I would have to say the best "feature" of Patch for me is that it brings our wonderful community together even better than before.
