Editor’s Letter


The Magic of Believing

I believe in magic. Magic is in the air. When we turn on the radio, when we drive down the city streets, when we are walking through our favorite store, we are surrounded by the magic this time of year brings. In this edition, it is our hope to take all the magic that surrounds us every day and represent it in every page you turn. From Christmas light displays, parades, special events, holiday recipes and more, we are more magical than ever.

I believe in giving. The spirit of Christmas is not just about what you receive but more about how you can give. Giving comes in many forms, and I am thankful to live in a region so committed to giving and serving others. Let’s also keep in mind there is no better way to support our community than to shop local this holiday season. When shopping local, you are not only spreading magic by purchasing gifts and items for loved ones, but supporting men and women who work and live in our community. We have featured over 60 locally owned boutiques, restaurants, candy stores, florists, art studios, salons and more. Give this holiday season by shopping local!

I believe in McDonald County. As our feature this month, we have brought you the shining faces of men and women who live and serve in this community. You can learn more about people who help us stay connected, keep us healthy, protect us and provide an amazing meal, plus many other great establishments in our Business Spotlights. In addition, we have great feature stories on the success of McDonald County schools, we highlight an outstanding athlete and share how a community came together to save a local movie theater. We love featuring McDonald County!

I believe in shopping. Whether that is due to the sentiment of gathering with family and friends to hit your favorite stores or looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, shopping is more than just picking out a gift. Shopping is part of the magic. Our 11th Annual Holiday Catalog is ready to help guide your shopping experience this holiday season. You can find something for everyone on your list!

I believe in traditions. One of the greatest local traditions is visiting Murphysburg, Joplin’s oldest neighborhood, this time of year. The streets are lined with beautifully decorated historic homes with detailed architecture, and the feeling of nostalgia overcomes you. In this edition, several families share their personal Christmas traditions and show a sneak peek of the wonder behind the doors of the founders’ homes of Joplin. We bring the nostalgia to you!

I believe in memories. This edition is complete with ideas to create the greatest memories this holiday season. From our calendar of events to our feature stories, we want to help foster a holiday season that is full of warm, happy memories for you to look back upon for a lifetime.


Happy Holidays!
