Popularity Contest: The Most Read News Story of the Week

The Patch readers respond to wars of words over Blair Park.

Popularity Contest: The Most Read News Story of the Week

A common theme in the top stories this week was a war of words over Blair Park and Moraga Canyon, whether it be a civic procedure or the prospect of oaks being felled to make way for an athletic field.

Among the announcements, the second most popular one made use of three exclamation points at the end of the headline. Patch would urge announcement posters to be sparing in the use of exclamation points. You ain’t necessarily adding to the excitement factor with exclamation points. And don’t go nuts with the bold-face, either!!!!
