Nice Things People Said About Khari Johnson


See Also: Goodbye from IB Patch Editor Khari Johnson

Since I founded Imperial Beach Patch in fall 2010 until I was laid off last Wednesday I worked with freelancers and other Patch employees to publish thousands of articles about the city of 26,000 in the very southwest corner of continental United States.

People were pretty appreciative and that appreciation helped inspire continued action and hard work.

When news spread that hundreds of Patch editors would be let go last week readers shared their thoughts and support on IB Patch. The response was humbling.

Lita “Gidge” Wilcox wrote a goodbye poem, a revision of a previously written poem titled “Some People Call Him Patch.” Ed Kravitz suggested a fund be gathered to ensure I continue to report in IB.

Nice things were also said in a San Diego Reader article about layoffs.

Below is a collection of comments by readers after I posted the following to my Facebook profile:

I am no longer editor of Imperial Beach Patch or La Mesa-Mount Helix Patch. I know so many good people in Imperial Beach and La Mesa who care about their communities and love their neighbors. Thank you for the help and support over the years. I am proud to have worked with people who worked so hard over the last 3+ years to report the news, tell stories and wear a lot of different hats.
