Colonial Beach News is a different kind of news site. Like the town it’s named after the news posted here is laid back.
Once in a while things get a little heated but for the most part I post as often as I can.
I’ll bring you news as it relates to this small river town. News that is relevant to residents, property owners and visitors.
When state or federal news is relevant I will try to bring that as well.
Perhaps you just came to read about a small beach town, to see how the fish are biting, learn how to pick a blue crab or learn some gardening or cooking techniques from me.
Due to economic reasons and the fact that working for free doesn’t pay the web hosting fees, Colonial Beach News has had to place ads on the site.
Now or in the future you may see affiliate links. These are links that take you to places where you can purchase items not sold by me, such as on Amazon. If you click on my links and buy anything from that site, you will not be charged any more than you would going directly to the site. The only difference is I earn a small commission when you click through my links to purchase.
The site is also supported by a few wonderful subscribers, which helps pay maintenance costs for the site.
Because subscriptions and ad revenues are so small I have to work several jobs to pay the bills so reporting has been sparse at times.
If you would like to help support the work that goes into this news site please visit the subscription site on Patreon and sign up today. You may pledge $1, $5 or $10 a month to help.
With any of these pledges you will get first access to all articles and some exclusive articles for higher donations.
A $5 pledge, that’s under 17 cents a day.
