Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Congratulations to the brave and strong-hearted mother who gave birth today to six boys and two girls weighing between 1.8 pounds and 3.4 pounds, according to the Associated Press. It all happened between 10:43 a.m. to 10:48 a.m. Yes, that's five minutes, eight babies. Apparently, this is the second time in history live octuplets have been born. Congrats, again, to the family and we hope everyone stays healthy!

(and thanks for the awesome Dexter "rolly-poly" quote, Showtime).
