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.

Celebrate both Earth Day and Arbor Day by planting trees in Colonial Park on Saturday, April 27.

Weed Out! Racine, Sierra Club and the City of Racine Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services have 175 small trees and shrubs to plant in the lower section of Colonial Park. We are reconstructing the ecosystem that was severely impacted by the emerald ash borer.

Meet at the Root River Steelhead Facility, 2200 Domanik Drive, at 9 a.m. We will work until noon. Dress for the weather with long trousers, sturdy shoes, and socks into which you can tuck your pants. There is a restroom on site, but please bring your own drinking water. Any questions contact .
