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.
