Give the Gift of Local News!

Welcome to our next installment of Weekly Review, the series where we mention what’s going on behind the scenes as well as showcase the top stories of the previous week.

As always, if you want to get this review directly in your inbox, all newsletter subscribers will receive it every Sunday!

Behind the Scenes

We share a lot of different types of stories at, from local lemonade stands all the way up to major energy projects in the area. While these stories are important to all of us living in the region, they are not always covered by larger outlets.

Throughout the years, some of these stories have been picked up by other news organizations and even got the attention of those in power. We feel it is important to share when this happens not only to brag about our awesome staff but to showcase how important local media is to the community it covers. Below are a few examples of these stories.

By covering these stories, not only do we raise awareness of them locally, but we can even get the attention of those in power in order to enact change. By becoming a Supporter, you help us hire more staff to write and uncover more stories.
