Local news needs your support
As our small businesses are being forced to close their doors with the uncertainty of what lies ahead for our communities, we are here. While we are a small team trying to stay ahead of the changing news and updates, we are dedicated to continually bringing the news to you.
Through our website and social channels, we are updating as quickly as possible, changes you need to know and what you want to know.
Long after this pandemic is over, we will be here. We will continue to grow in our communities and need you, the people, to grow with us.
During this difficult time of uncertainty, we need your help. Like freedom, journalism isn't free. Like any other business, revenue is a necessity. Unfortunately, with the damage done to small businesses in our communities, media groups all over the country are struggling to keep their staff paid and lights on. This is where you can help. A small donation to this campaign can go a long way.
I don't take writing this lightly and I know this ask is a tough one. But I thank you for reading this and if you can afford to make a donation, of any size, it will not be forgotten.
We will be creating a "Wall Of Fame" on our website to showcase "our" heroes during this time and would love to see you there.
Thanks so much and be safe.
