Although I take much of the heat for the debates stirred by controversial articles meant to do exactly that - spark debate & set everyone's minds thinking about the island, I also quite enjoyed doing the paper although it can become quite a lot of work when deadline looms large.
The problem is that although many people enjoy the paper, selling advertising is like pulling teeth. No one wants to dip into already low pockets. It takes $1000 to print, if we can have 10 or 20 steady sponsors, we can get them out and whatever advertising we sell can compensate for the grief and hard effort the contributors put into it.
How about it Friends of the Paper?
