Readers keep paper’s staff going strong

Thank you for the kind words the past several weeks, and your generous donations. Almost daily, your recognition of our efforts pour in with cards, letters, notations on envelopes, “memo” phone calls … simple, encouraging and heartfelt support.

We’re not out of the woods, yet we no longer live day-to-day, either. We’ve yet to receive any government support; meanwhile, we celebrate knowing several local businesses have received emergency money. That’s a great story, and we all benefit from it.

We’ll continue to pursue all revenue angles, yet we operate every day with the mindset that if we are to survive it will be through other avenues. 

Monetary gifts come in all shapes and sizes, but each is equally meaningful. There’s the online donation option, which is tax deductible. Anonymous cards and letters, new subscriptions “topped off” to include a donation, too. 

You’re making it possible for us to serve readers throughout the southern Willamette Valley. 

In the past two weeks, in the midst of the pandemic, we’ve launched a new, weekly page dedicated to education. And we debuted a partnership with PeaceHealth; its doctors and nurses will provide regular insights for our readers. We continue to report and provide other credible, local voices on COVID-19. 

If you have the means, please donate what you can at If you can’t, and know someone who can donate, please encourage them to do so.
