Love 'em or hate 'em, AOL's push for hyper local news took two more steps this week in Southern California. More specifically, Patch.com launched websites in the unincorporated community of Altadena and the city of South Pasadena. Behind the two sites are editors with masters degrees in journalism.

Altadena Patch Editor Dan Abendschein went to USC and earned a named for himself locally at the Pasadena Star-News. Interesting stories on his site this week have ranged from the vision for a comprehensive hiking/biking/recreational trail system (will you someday be able to bike from the San Gabriel Mountains to Long Beach?) to Christmas Tree Lane, a state historical site.
