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.

  1. That is a joke. Unapproved means not part of our society and not part of the rules. However when these anti society people need medical care, education for there children, roads, shops, fields, and everything that is planned and approved by society they believe it to be there right to enjoy and use. Wrong, make a stand and say no to anything that is approved and part of society and see how you go. Society works really well, we are lucky and you are too. Look round, there are not police on every corner and yet we all live together peacefully and contribute to our way of life. If you don’t pay your way and still use the great infrastructure we enjoy and pay for you are a parasite on society, very simply and very true.
