Our cover is free – but we need your help to provide it

You may notice that you did not have to pay to read this article. This is because we have never set up a paywall in our 21 years of existence. We believe that access to reliable and fair local media coverage is a basic human right, and we are committed to keeping all of our coverage free for everyone to consume.

This access is important because it helps readers connect with their community, helps them learn more about what’s going on around them (good and bad), fosters community conversations, and prompts meaningful action. Over 70,000 people read our coverage each month, and we believe our community is better off for it.

But as a small business, simply giving our “product” to everyone for free is not a sustainable business model. That’s why every voluntary contribution we receive, no matter how big or small, is critically important.

We know that not everyone can or wants to financially support our work. But if you can do it, we need you. Invest in our trusted local journalism today so thousands more in our community can benefit.
