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.

The Racine Police Department (RPD) announced Thursday that officers would distribute all-natural hand sanitizer and face masks to the community from their squad cars.

Officers who are out in Racine’s neighborhoods every day will be handing out hand sanitizer and masks while supplies last. The overall goal is to create a safer and healthier Racine.

The Racine Police Department is grateful to CKM Inc. for their donation to the citizens of Racine. CKM Inc. manufactured the all-natural hand sanitizer. Companies like CKM Inc. are proud community members that play a vital role in the health and vibrancy of Racine, especially during these unique and challenging times.
