Serreze: "Never wear shoes you can't run in"

We at Northampton Media are hard news reporters. We love digging up and following important stories in the city, especially those ignored by the mainstream press.

In such cases, no news is bad news.

To remain an active and vital source of on-line news, though, we need your financial help. Now. Please consider taking out a voluntary subscription (our content is always free) or making a one-time contribution.

We are in the process of incorporating as a 501(c)(3) so that we may directly apply for grants and solicit tax-deductible sponsorships and contributions, and are working with some seasoned marketing professionals to develop a sustainable advertising program. What’s taking us so long? Well, our first priority is and always will be tracking down information and producing the news. We’ll get there.

Bottom line: We believe that an informed citizenry is critical to an effective democracy.
