An Editor's Farewell

A love note and farewell letter to Agoura Hills from Local Editor Danielle Jacoby.

To the Agoura Hills community,

May 26, 2010 feels like a lifetime away. That was the day I launched this site.

Since then, Agoura Hills Patch has told more than 1,425 stories—from a series on Conrad N. Hilton Foundation's planned 66-acre below Ladyface Mountain to breaking news of James Cameron's proposed .

And then there's the columns, spanning quirky , "," , and .

I have been lucky enough to get to know Agoura Hills and the extraordinary people that make up this great city. We've got a community rich with Hometown Heroes, , and . 

It has been an amazing ride, and one I will never forget. Of course, I could not have done it without my incredibly dedicated staff.

These ladies and gentlemen hit the ground running from day one. They have produced thorough news stories and poignant human interest pieces, and they will continue to report on the issues that matter to you. 

Sunday marks my final day as editor of this site as I will be taking over West Hollywood Patch. But don’t worry, I’ll still stay in touch, and I ask you to do the same. And really, there is only so long I can go without a  mocha cappuccino or a pint of  latest brew. 

Beginning Monday,  will serve as sub-editor for Agoura Hills Patch. Please send any news tips, questions and comments to spascal@sbcglobal.net.

This site grew and transformed thanks to your readership. And for that, I will always be grateful. 

- Danielle Jacoby

Danielle, you gave our son Andrew his first job and now he is college trying to work for the Middletown CT Patch. Thanks for everything and we wish you well "over the hill". Jeri and Ira Cohen

Danielle, I hope you know how much you will be missed. You are a FABULOUS editor and West Hollywood is so lucky to have you. Best of luck to you (even though you certainly don't need it!) :) Charlene

Danielle... You're a double threat, a professional and a terrific human being! All the best for W. Hollyweird. What a leap!
