When the Burro and Plateau fires broke out, The Journal was there, with daily updates for residents.
When snowmelt pushed our rivers over the brink, The Journal was at the scene, reporting the latest flood warnings.
The Journal was on the ground of the county’s largest marijuana bust and in court for the verdicts. And it worked around the clock to bring readers results from the 2016 election.
That’s local news.
Now, we’re entering a new fiscal year with new challenges and a continued effort to work harder and smarter in an industry that shares our efforts on the air, social media and internet.
And we need you to be our champion.
For the next seven weeks, The Journal is embarking on a subscription drive, with a goal of gaining 100 champions of local journalism.
If you subscribe, thank you. For each friend or neighbor you refer, we’ll add a week to your subscription.
If you don’t subscribe, here’s your chance to become a champion of journalism and support a local business.
For $45 a year, you’ll receive full access to the-journal.com and The Journal newspaper.
The Journal has been locally owned since 1888 and owned by the Ballantine family since 1999.
Help keep local journalism in Montezuma County.
Be a champion of local news.
