CalCoastNews reporters have uncovered cases of real estate fraud, embezzlement, and elder abuse that have led to arrests and public awareness.
Reporter and CCN co-founder Daniel Blackburn covers water issues in the North County. His understanding of water politics is unmatched by other reporters in the area because of his former employment in the upper strata of California’s water industry. He has written on water politics for three decades.
Reporter and CCN co-founder Karen Velie’s investigations into several hard money lenders who defrauded area seniors of more $500 million led to investigations and arrests. Velie performs in-depth investigations into issues of government wrongdoing and abuse against the homeless.
CCN needs your support to continue to operate.
Support CalCoastNews in our mission to provide in-depth and investigative reporting to the Central Coast by supporting our advertisers and donating.
By supporting our advertisers — such as Spencer’s Fresh Markets, CalCoast Commercial Properties, Blakeslee and Blakeslee, Karen Scott Audiology, ABC Bail Bonds, The Cliffs Resort, Dutch Window Cleaning, Café Roma, Apple Farm Restaurant, Central Coast Digital Design, attorney Stew Jenkins, and Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center — you help keep CalCoastNews alive.
The changing media landscape has resulted in decreased advertising revenue throughout the industry and created a major problem — the dearth of investigative reporting as mainstream newspapers focus on profits. Because of this, communities suffer. CalCoastNews needs your support to continue to report on important local issues.
We are asking our readers for donations to help cover reporter salaries. Our donors’ names are not disclosed, so you do not need to fear retaliation.
Thank you for your support,
