This and That

Saturday, July 14, 2018

This has been another fast paced week at the DDD.

We strive to provide a newspaper with a wide variety of local stories.

Stories that inform, educate and update the community on local events and personalities.

Hopefully, we’re accomplishing this.

This week we’ve featured stories on a local minister that provides a column for the paper every Saturday.

Stewart-Allen Clark, the preacher man, shared his thoughts on the area and his efforts to bring his community together through church sponsored events in Malden such as the annual Red, White and Boom event.

Many in the county continue to discuss the proposed sales tax increases for the building and maintenance of the new county hospital.

We wrapped up the week by covering the first of many town hall events scheduled throughout the county held in Malden on Thursday.

Trina Bell’s article on this event is featured in today’s paper.

I will be attending the town hall meeting in Senath on Monday night and just completed an interview with Dr. Pu concerning the health care situation in the county which will run in Tuesday’s edition of the Delta Dunklin Democrat.

We covered the Tractor Supply Co. grand opening on Saturday as well as the opening of two Urgent Cares in Kennett and I had the wonderful experience of interviewing Dunklin County’s Farm Family of the Year, the Champlins from Holcomb. Look for that story in an upcoming edition.

We’ve been all over Dunklin County this week and will continue to cover the county to the best of our ability.

There is a lot more on the horizon including more community profiles, city council meeting coverage, and of course the election coming in August.

We at the DDD appreciate feedback and suggestions on what you’d like to see more of.

We will continue to be your source for local news, sports, and events.

Please feel free to let us know how we’re doing covering the entire county and truly being your community newspaper.

See you out there.
