Why we're hosting a Palmer news blog and the Get Out The Word Giveaway

Our mission: We want to provide a Web-only local news source that spotlights all things Palmer -- events, government, schools, recreation and business. We are the only media outlet with such a strong Palmer focus.

The Palmer Post strives to give readers a street-level view of what’s happening around town, from new businesses opening their doors to the old-fashioned fun of Colony Christmas, from investigations at city hall and school news to restaurant reviews and Hatcher Pass hikes.

The Post was founded by three journalists with many years of experience and a desire to see the news of our hometown reported with clarity, fairness and insight. In order to make this blog the best it can be, we'd love your feedback and hope you'll partner with us on this journey.

We're starting off by offering a drawing for a $20 coffee card to the spot of your choice when you help us Get Out The Word that we exist! How can you help, you ask? Several ways, and each way earns you drawing points. Scroll down (WAY down) to fill out the form for:

+1 follow us
+2 fill out the survey to your right
+3 blog, FB or tweet about this contest and paste the URL 

Drawing date is Oct. 28.
