Becoming a subscriber of the Racine County Eye is a big deal.

It means you value local journalism, not the corporate-owned stuff that just wants to feed you crime and conflict. But the good stuff, like stories about your kids reaching a milestone, a business owner courageously opening their doors or that nonprofit that is lifting people up or who is running for election.

That's the journalism we're committed to producing every day. And I'll be honest, we could use your support in making that happen. So if you aren't a paying subscriber, please consider becoming one. We can't do this work without you.

Denise Lockwood
Proud owner of the Racine County Eye

PS... this year we'll have our 10th anniversary. And we would love to have 500 people subscribe for $20/month so that we can reach $10,000/month in subscriptions. Can you help us reach our goal?
