Dave Rastovich, Broken Head

As someone who happily does not participate in the woeful communicative medium of social media and internet ‘information’ I have felt for a long time that The Echo is my most trusted window into the human world. Especially the local human world. 

I specifically would like to thank your paper and the contributors who offer diverse and open-minded discourse at a time where it seems paranoid black and white style extremism is popular. 

Our community greatly benefits from the insights shared regularly by Phillip Frazer, Mary Gardener, Hans Lovejoy, Helena Norberg Hodge, David Lovejoy, Margo Kingston and, my personal favourite, Mandy Nolan. (We would be screwed without Mandy’s honest humour!)

Thank you all so much.


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.
