News and Opinion from Sisters, Oregon

Shoulder to shoulder, six feet apart

The battle against the spread of the COVID-19 virus is testing Sisters’ resilience as nothing has before. Wildfire, hard winters, road closures, housing crises — we’ve weathered them all, and yet none of them posed the long-term challenges that the events of Spring 2020 present.

The Nugget remains committed to being the voice of the Sisters community. We will continue to provide accurate and reliable information to the community via our print edition and also through The Nugget News and our Facebook page. Perhaps even more importantly, we will continue to paint the portrait of our community as it strives to overcome these hard times.

As a small, independent newspaper, these times pose significant challenges to us as they do to all of you. We rely on advertisers’ and readers’ support, and we understand that those sources of support are under significant pressure and changing rapidly.

Readers of The Nugget can support us by supporting our advertisers, as we will continue to do in any way possible through and beyond this crisis. Those readers who have signed on with supporting subscriptions are valued partners.

We’re all keeping our distance physically, but we must still stand shoulder-to-shoulder, and together we will weather this terrible storm.
