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.

February 14 is a day that is meant to be full of love. However, it can be stressful. The endless thoughts of what to get someone and scrambling to buy gifts can be a daunting task. Valentine’s Day comes with a lot of pressure.

This Valentine’s Day push stress to the back burner. Dive into this Valentine’s Day gift guide as a way to support local businesses in Racine and show the one you love just how much you love them.
