From the editor’s desk
It’s so pretty out right now! Daffodils, tulips, leaves popping, grass growing ... you have to love spring in the Midwest. Makes you want to count your blessings every time you can wake up and literally smell the flowers.
Our hearts at the Bureau County Republican, Putnam County Record, Tonica News and Shaw Media were broken last week, as we lost one of our dear friends, Cliff Arnold of Tonica. Cliff and his wife, Elin, were the previous owners of the Putnam County Record and Tonica News, which Shaw Media acquired in December 2012. Cliff and Elin have been long-time friends and customers of the BCR; we’ve known them for years. Needless to say, we will miss Cliff dearly — his stories, his laughter, his jokes. A great man ... and a great loss. Our sympathy is with Elin and their family.
