The power of the press was proven when local staff writer for the Door County Advocate Liz Welter started a series on the plight of Clay Banks dairy farmers Dale and Karen Cihlar. After publishing a story about a GoFundMe account to help the Cihlar family, more than $90,000 has been raised.
DoorCountyDailyNews.com President and CEO Roger Utnehmer commended Welter for her story. Utnehmer said it proves newspapers are still playing an important role in making communities better places to live.
You can find her story by googling The Door County Advocate.
