Contrary to belief — we’ve accepted a gift all but once otherwise have never actually allowed investment funds of any kind. We don’t allow investment funds of any kind because we have no interest in being beholden to an agenda; a third party, nor special interests. There’s been allot of interest over the years once having been the new kid on the block but I have always rejected those offers.
I also never liked the idea of having to report to investors; others, or follow the orders of someone else for no reason other than the fact that they’re helping keep the lights on around here. My favourite part about being the leader of this newspaper isn’t quite the perks that come with the shiny nameplate on my desk.
It’s actually the fact that 98% of the way over the course of nearly two decades we’ve done it ourselves. We’ve done it ourselves with the help of our community; our avid readers, and loyalists.
For that reason with those that have consented of course we’re launching a community wall. We want to honour some of the faces and people that have made us possible for much of our lives.
