About Us

We started this locally-owned online newspaper to fill what we see as an important gap for our readers — both breaking news as it’s happening, and in-depth coverage of county issues that can be hard to do with print deadlines. It's important to us to cover news that's valuable to the whole community, and we thank everyone for supporting our project and sharing ideas about what issues they'd like to see covered.

Everyone on our staff has worked at other local papers in the county, most of which are owned by Digital First Media, a national newspaper chain based in Denver, the same company that owns most of the other papers in Northern California. Corporate cutbacks and out of state owners made working for DFM increasingly difficult, so we decided to start a locally-owned and independent news source that would be accountable to the local community.

$621.63 of $8,000 per month
For this amount we'll be able to quit our day jobs and side jobs, and upgrade some of our web tech as well as camera equipment.
