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. How about a civil lawsuit from all the local businesses that are suffering as a direct result of this man’s actions.

  2. Wow – I thought this story was going to be about Anthony Fauci… my bad.

    Weren’t we told it was in the sewage a few weeks back?

    This guy may well be the first “known” to bring it and I for one am not fond of his actions, but let’s not blindly persecute one foolish individual at the bottom of the tree, let’s look beyond collectively and prosecute all those who were playing games with humanity.
