Dear Readers:

Next week, Eric Knysz will go on trial in 51st Circuit Court for the Sept. 9, 2013 murder of Michigan State Police Trooper Paul Butterfield. This trial is expected to last nine days. Mason County Press was the first news organization to break the story of Trooper Butterfield’s shooting and we plan on covering the trial from beginning to end. As you, our valuable readers are aware, we provide our services free of charge, thanks to the contributions of our advertisers. However, this trial is going to require additional personnel.

We are asking you to consider helping us out financially. On the top of the advertising sidebar is a PayPal “donation” button. Please help us provide the best coverage of this important “trial of the century” by giving any amount you can afford.

We promise to cover this story objectively and accurately, as you have come to expect.
