WE COUNT ON OUR READERS FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT

As we prepare to celebrate our 20th Anniversary at Historic City News, we turn to our loyal readers to help us fund the cost of essential local investigative journalism. Citizen journalism, the core of an independent free press, is certainly not free. We charge readers nothing for their weekly subscriptions. We provide, without charge, 24/7 access to locally produced, locally focused, independent reporting. Our mission today is the same as it was 20-years ago; "Holding public figures accountable to the public." We would appreciate your donation to keep us as your watchdog for an honest and open government in St Augustine and St Johns County, Florida. Thank you for making a year-end gift of year-long value.
