  2. To present all sides of controversial issues without influence from advertisers or private owners.  
  3. To promote and practise a civil, well-informed public discourse on current events and issues affecting the island.  
  4. To promote writing, research, and critical thinking skills among island youth.  
  5. To record and preserve the history of Cortes Island for future generations.
