Last Friday, Nov. 18, the OB Rag began a week of fund-raising, appealing to our readers and supporters to help us with our costs. With a goal is to raise $2,000 over the week, we now have reached $1405. We’re hoping to cover the remaining $600 this week.

Here’s why we need that much. Over the last 6 months, here is what we have spent from our shoe-string budget:

  • $900 – Rent to Green Store for our office
  • $510 – yearly cost of server
  • $295 – to our writers (not much, we agree)
  • $112 – subscriptions – to help keep us in the know
  • $ 60 – statcounter
  • $ 40 – image program – since ended
  • $ 64 – PO Box and postage
  • (notice what’s not added, like gas and other cost reimbursements)
    $1981 – Total

Hey OB, we need the OB rag. Reports like the planning board meetings, town council
meetings, OB events, OB crimes. Chip in! It’s our news! Also, if you don’t like the progressive leanings, the Rag gives you an opportunity to Rant in the comments.
