Hello Appeal Readers! Hope you all have had an outstanding week! School is or has already started which means; early mornings; homework; practices; games; parent teacher conferences; and schedules.

I’m interested in knowing what you thought of our last edition which included all of the school districts in Monroe County. Drop a comment and let me know and/or email me.

We are changing the layout up a bit. Trying a few different things. Hope you like!

We will be adding a “Park Ranger” column. Mary Anne Heitmeyer, Mark Twain Lake Park Ranger will be writing a column for the Appeal. We aren’t really sure how often she’ll have this column, hoping weekly. She is still working out the information she’d like to share, but, initial ideas are sightings; upcoming events; and/or fishing and lake stats. We are excited about what this could bring to Monroe County as several like to venture to the Lake.

I am still actively looking for sponsors for different sections of our paper. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for one of the following sections, please contact me; Paris Chamber; Monroe City Chamber; Down on the Farm; Senior Living; Restaurant Guide; Business Directory; Outdoor Living; Healthy Living; Shop in Shelbina; Shop in Monroe City; Shop in Mexico; or Shop in Moberly.

As always, we welcome any submissions for photos and/or articles! Hope you all have a fantastic week.
