Another Lost Cause!!

$216,000 in State funding for the “California Newspaper Project” (CNP) was cut last year and is cut in the current budget.  This state funding supports a number of newspaper projects that  preserve and digitize California newspapers for state residents, services no other organizations in the state provide, and that bring in substantial federal and private grant funds, approximately $5.8 million over the last 10 years.  These projects will come to an end without continued state support.
Yep--another one bites the dust!  Or is about to.  I was looking up information for the Picacho Peak blogs for ECW, and found that funding has been cut substantially for the fine folks at CNP.  It just isn't going to end, I guess.
Here's a link

Please go, sign the petition-do something--PLEASE??
