The Morning News for February 28, 2011

by Dave on February 28, 2011




After 9 months of providing the Coastal Sussex Morning News, we have been unable to find a sufficient amount of businesses willing to advertise here.

So we are coming to you, the readers, with a five-day “tip jar” request. If you find the Morning News a valuable part of your day, we’re asking you to click this link and send us some financial support via PayPal. (A comparable daily newspaper would cost 50 cents a day/$130 per year.) If you can see fit to send us $10, $25, or even $50, it will go a long way to defray our expenses. If we are able to raise enough this way, we can commit to a full year of The Morning News completely advertising-free. If not, it will help us make a decision about the future. Thanks for your consideration.
