Graffiti, stickering and other damage to our news racks costs over $50,000 per year to fix.

As an independent, locally owned small business, that money is significant to us, and could be put to better use.

We could...

...hire a full-time journalist to do investigative reporting, exposing issues that concern all of us and help keep our leaders and institutions in check.

...hire five freelance writers every week to spotlight the up-and-coming artists, musicians, activists, and innovators that give our town its unique flavor.

...print thousands more papers each week, getting our reporting into more hands so people are informed and can take action.

...hire local artists to custom paint each of our racks. And yes, we actually do this!

Thank you for your help!
