Former Patch editors launches their own local sites

This is great news: Olga Enger, the former editor of Newport Patch, has launched her own siteThe Newport Wave — after her recent layoff (via Philip Eil’s Twitter feed). I hope we see a lot more of this.

And this: The Jamaica Plain News, launched recently by former Jamaica Plain Patch editor Chris Helms. (Thanks to Michelle Johnson for pointing me to this.)
