“I was seeking an honest man in the form of a person who practiced the core of journalism – objective, unbiased, nonpartisan reporting,” Mike says, “a person who tells you what he knows, not what he thinks or feels, about issues of the day, where far too much Op/Ed reporting masquerades as journalism. I found that in Heath Haussamen’s”

We depend on donations from people like Mike – and you – to keep shining light on important issues and providing deep, investigative reporting and thoughtful commentary. Please, make a donation today at has a goal of getting 100 people signed up to make automatic, monthly donations by the end of the year. We currently have 91. One-time donations are also essential to our survival. We don’t charge a subscription fee because I believe people should have access to news and information about their government regardless of their ability to pay. I believe that access is critical to democracy.

So instead, I ask that you give what you can afford. It could be $5 per month or $50. It could be a one-time donation of $10 – or, like Mike, an end-of-the-year gift of $1,000. But please, give something.

Mike says his years of reading and participating in discussions we host “have enriched my views and perspectives greatly about my home state.”

“I highly recommend supporting, as I have for many years, to keep real journalism alive in our state,” he said.

Please, double the impact of your donation by giving today at
