You depend on us to get you the news. We depend on you to help us financially. And I can’t say this enough… now is not time to sit on the sidelines waiting for someone else to support local journalism.

As we’re writing about mass closures of schools, bars, restaurants that don’t offer carryout or have drive-thru service, and government agencies — our news organization is facing a tough road as well.

Most of our revenue is tied to restaurants, events, and retail establishments. So this is going to hit us hard. But while you can go without some of these businesses, you can’t go without local news.

The Center for Disease Control lists on its mitigation plan that people need media sources to provide local information. Because of that need, we’re stepping up our coverage. We’re providing maps, resource lists, up-to-date information about what’s open and closed, and valuable information about how state, county, and local agencies are responding.

The good news is that our audience numbers have sky-rocketed. We know tens of thousands of you are reading our content every day. So that leaves our readers with the task of supporting local news.

Here are two ways you can help:
1. Refer us to a business in need. We’re offering $50/month ads through June. Sign-up here.
2. Become a subscriber.

Please support us so that we can support you through this difficult time.
