Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

High winds and rain wreaked havoc in eastern Racine County and 983 We Energies customers were without power at about 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, according to We Energies website.

The bulk of those residents effected are in Mount Pleasant near Highway C and S. Green Bay Road. A handful of residents have also been effected throughout eastern Racine County.

We’ll keep you posted as we find out more information.
