Former Mercury News columnist and veteran journalist Lisa Chung has returned to the town where she grew up — Los Altos — and is writing for Patch, the AOL-owned string of local news sites. In a posting Tuesday, she writes:
    I'm covering the towns where I learned to swim, ride and be a part of the Aquacade at the old Covington School. I'm loving it. 
    As a professional journalist for more than 25 years, I reported and wrote news stories. I assigned and edited reporters. I wrote a column at the San Jose Mercury News that some may remember. And now, as journalism makes a full transition to Web 2.0 and beyond, I want to work with community collaborators. 
    The goal: All Los Altos and Los Altos Hills. All the time.

It will be interesting to see if she does hard news or turns out feel-good features that the Merc is known for.
