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.

Toni Black is grateful for her fiance and being employed at this time. COVID-19 has shown Racine residents how being a part from our loved ones makes us appreciate them even more. As a part of the Racine Gratitude Project, Black shares a glimpse of gratefulness.

Thanksgiving is a season to share gratitude and Toni Black isn’t missing a beat. Check out her story below.

Toni Black says “I am super thankful for being able to be with my fiance and still be in work in crazy times like these. Thanksgiving means so much to me. I am also so thankful that I have many friends to talk to in trying times like these.”
