What we wont do, what we need
Telling the truth is a dangerous business.
This newspaper has existed for the sole God-ordained purpose of exposing the unfruitful works of darkness, to be a beacon of truth and a defender of freedom. In bad economic times, politicians make the misguided decision to raise taxes.
That’s not just foolish, it’s plain ignorant.
In bad economic times, newspapers raise prices on everything, including newspapers at the news stand.
The Ellis County Press
knows the economic situation because we’re students of the free market.
That’s why our paper still costs two quarters.
However, we’re also realistic.
Providing our readers with hard-hitting investigative pieces about our local governments or news you just simply will not find in the establishment papers is getting expensive.
It’s not a regular occurrence to ask for more help from our readers and our sponsors, but it’s needed if we are to remain this county’s most visible source of honesty-in-reporting.
After all, newspapers were launched to watchdog our government, not become the government’s propaganda outlet.
If you would like more information on how you can help us sustain this publication to include even more news and more of the truth, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or 972-544-2369.
Our YouTube channel has been launched.
We have an Internet radio station.
We are branching out and doing what it takes to spread the truth to the thousands of residents we reach.
But we’ll need more help financially and spiritually.
We don’t ask for much.
In fact, we really don’t ask at all.
We know God has his hand on this county and he will provide the resources we need to do his job.
But that doesn’t mean we can act cavalier in tough times.
There are exciting ideas on the drawing board as we move to cover more of our courts, police and help facilitate journalism opportunities in our local schools.
Thank you, readers, for staying with us in the good and the bad times.
We’re confident this obstacle will be overcome and our paper will be even more successful because of it.
