Publisher Note

December 29, 2022

It's the end of another year! Some of you may be making new year resolutions. I am included in that both personal and professional. In the coming year for Monroe-Ralls, I plan to attend a lot more community events, some city, chamber, and county meetings, and visit businesses on a regular basis. I will live feed events as much as possible as well. We are in the middle of interviewing new candidates to help me in the office to where we'd be open 20 hours a week. I also hope to make the paper content 50% Monroe and 50% Ralls, but, some weeks, that just is not possible.

With prices on the rise with paper, printing costs, and postage, we are in hopes we can continue to print and not go to digital only. That will be out last resort to continue sharing news and events. With that said, we need as many advertisers and subscribers as we can to help us with that.

I want to thank each and everyone of you rather you are a subscriber, follower, advertiser, sports writers, delivery or community supporter who submits news to us. All of you are very much appreciated and Monroe-Ralls would not be continuing if it wasn't for you.

I wish you a very Happy 2023.
