All business are being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, but Homewood and Flossmoor residents are doing what they can to help all our small businesses in survive the crisis.

The Chronicle is no exception. We saw advertising revenues drop for our April print edition and we expect May and June, at least, will be difficult months.

But it is more important than ever to get accurate, clear information to people, and we're doing our best to keep local, county and state news flowing so we all know quickly what we need to do to be safe.

The Chronicle is no exception. We saw advertising revenues drop for our April print edition and we expect May and June, at least, will be a difficult months. But it is more important than ever to get accurate, clear information to people, and we're doing our best to keep local, county and state news flowing so we all know quickly what we need to do to be safe.

Homewood and Flossmoor people get that. We're very grateful to readers who have pitched in to help keep the news flowing, many of whom are no doubt facing financial difficulties and uncertainties themselves. 

Our normal monthly budget is about $12,000. In the week since the governor issued the shelter-in-place order, readers have contributed more than $1,700 to the cause. That's a great help. Like many businesses that have had to adapt to be able to operate during the pandemic, we might have to adjust how we deliver the news, cutting back on some of our distribution expenses temporarily.

Our goal, however, is to keep doing what we do as long as possible: posting daily online publication of local, county and state information about the pandemic and publishing key stories in our monthly print edition, which reaches many people who are not online. 

With your help, we'll make it so.
