“I’d be honored to have my name listed as one of the donors on your website. My husband was a reporter, then a copy editor for both of our local newspapers. He and his colleagues valued unbiased, honest reporting.

“​We NEED local journalism to fill a tremendous gap, and you do a great job.” — Jenny Walker

I read your paper religiously. I am the daughter of a newspaperman, who published and edited a paper in Sampson County. He always said his job was to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.  His paper was ultimately acquired by a chain, and it was never the same. I should have donated to you earlier, my apologies! There was a piece last night on 60 Minutes on community journalism, how important it is, and what’s happened to newspapers all over the country. It is so sad. Anyway, thanks for what you do. — H. Stewart Parker
“Your publication is vital to our community. In my opinion your publication is the only real journalism in this supposedly enlightened county.”
