  1. Well done! You two are amazing assets to our community and deserve this boost. Congratualtions!

    • Thanks for your support Heidi, we’re really excited to be able to expand our coverage around the county for everyone!

  2. Kate and Adrian – so glad to hear you got that grant! It’s an indication of the good reporting you are doing and the major service to our area you are providing. Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Alberta, this grant has no impact on our editorial independence whatsoever and has no requirements beyond the proposal we made to expand staffing and coverage. We remain an independent, locally-owned and editorially independent news outlet. If you have any questions about this, we are happy to be transparent. Our only commitments are to providing accurate, locally owned news that serves Mendocino County residents. All of our news is published on this website first by local reporters, no culling involved.

  3. Wow- Facebook and its agenda is filtering DEEP! Along with the GRANT funding comes its regulations. Say goodbye to REAL journalism, and hello to Socialism and the CCP. This is ridiculous!

    • Hi Crystal, this grant has no impact on our editorial independence whatsoever and has no requirements beyond the proposal we made to expand staffing and coverage.

  4. Well deserved. Would love to see some coordination among those doing the heavy lifting with volunteer translation for the community. Al punto, some school affiliates , ad recently kzyx each doing their best.

    • Hi Laura, part of the plan is that this will allow us to expand our budget for translation and original reporting in Spanish, and we have some collaboration plans in the works as well. Thanks for your support!

    • Thanks Keri, we couldn’t do it without the support of our local members. We are looking forward to being able to expand what we can offer to our members and the entire community with this grant and our co-op transition to community ownership.

    • Thanks Cynthia, we’re excited to hire more local reporters and expand our coverage with more news for everyone!

  5. Very happy to see this news this morning. If you need any help on the Coast let me know ! A proud patreon. Keep-up the important work “granted” us by the First Amendment.

    • The First Amendment “grants” nothing. It is a written security of a right held by individual members of the People prior to men writing those words on paper.

      Government and the Babylon media have programmed “citizens” (subjects) into a mindset that government has “authority” to tell the People what to do, and what rights it may exercise, and what “exceptions” there are to those rights. IT DOES NOT have such authority. Such pretended “authority” is Ultra Vires. Government has power to do such things, but so does an armed robber have the power to take your money from you, while have nothing authority or right to do so. Such power is enforced by weapons pointed at us.

  6. He who pays the piper calls the tune.

    Money from Facebook? Really? Might as well take a grant from China.

    • Hi J.C., as stated in the article, this grant has no impact on our editorial independence whatsoever. We remain an independent, locally-owned and editorially independent news outlet and are transitioning to community ownership. If you have any questions about this, we are happy to be transparent.
