"I really hope people support this, try it and support it ... a qualified professional corps of people who clearly have no agenda other than to put out good, important information .... All the pieces line up here to have a really promising and important new enterprise
that can help us answer the question, 'Who are we supposed to believe?"'

"This is an effort to make sure that our community of Ashland has a solid, dependable, trustworthy, source of news. We may still disagree — we will disagree, I can guarantee that — but if we start from the same place of understanding the situation that we’re confronted with, then we are miles ahead in trying to bring differing views together."
-Pam Marsh, Oregon state representative
