Thank You For Everything, Towson

It's a changing of the guard at Towson Patch. But don't worry: editor Tyler Waldman isn't going too far.


"No, Patch.com."

"Ah, OK. So you do, like, lawn care and stuff?"

It feels like that was the sort of exchange I went through every day two years ago. My, how times have changed. I was a fresh-faced college graduate when I first introduced myself and Patch to the Towson community. I watch my and I can literally see the nerves.

In two years, it's been my honor and privilege to help guide Towson Patch from an upstart news source to a must-read for thousands of office workers, business owners, students and residents alike. But now comes the time to make a change.

The important thing: You'll still see me around. I'll be moving to a new role at Patch, covering features, courts and other big stories along the York Road corridor, while keeping an eye on points north for Hunt Valley-Cockeysville Patch.

You'll still see my byline quite often here in Towson and, given that I , you may still be able to catch me tucked behind my laptop in or anywhere I can find free wi-fi and a good cup of coffee.

I'd also like to take a moment to introduce , the new full-time editor for Towson Patch. The former editor for Cockeysville, she also handles the school beat for Baltimore County Patch sites. You can reach her by email at nayana.davis@patch.com.

I would be remiss if I didn't thank my readers, first and foremost, for not just sitting back and reading, but being really active participants on this site. For sending me news tips, joining in the conversation on our Facebook page and helping to make Patch a true community.

I'd like to thank the local officials and community leaders like Councilman David Marks, Nancy Hafford, Ed Kilcullen, Mike Ertel, Richard Parsons and David Kosak for always being available to bug for quotes or story ideas. There isn't enough space here to thank everyone.

For now, I'm going on vacation to sunny Los Angeles. I'll see you around town when I get back. Thanks for reading.

I have been out of town since last Wednesday. So I just read " Thank You For Everything Towson". Tyler, we thank you! You have put your heart and soul into our community. You have earned the respect of community leaders and local officals. Tyler, we wish you all the best but, we will never let you totally leave Towson.

The group also might have some importance when it comes to the http://www.swissreplicasuk.co.uk/ for the kids. Purchase and try http://www.sslwatches.com/ that are easy to wear or to take off. For example, things will be found by you like fast wrapping bands. Also, some watches come with nylon bands and rubber bands which are flexible.They are not likely to look like children watches. On the opposite, children http://www.sslwatches.com/iwc-watches.html/ are likely to look more like the ones that adults wear.
