I note certain community member’s concerns regarding the recent redesign of The Echo masthead. I also note what a wonderful community we live in, where issues such as this generate such passion.

It reminds me to sweat about the big stuff and let the less important go through to the keeper. Give me masthead change any day over climate change or the myriad of atrocities that take place around the globe.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
