During the month of January, our team at the Journal will be focused on starting the year out with a bang.

What’s new in each community in Fillmore County?

Every community has a story.

While we go about our days, people are investing their energy, time, and resources into making your community a better place to live.

And, we want to capture those moments in the January 28th issue of the Fillmore County Journal.

What has now become an annual tradition of sharing the courage and successes of others, started four years ago in 2010, our annual Community Progress Edition is considered something equivalent to the “State of the Union” for Fillmore County.

We have a lot of movers and shakers in this area, and our Journal reporters do their best to keep up with all the news and happenings in our region.

When we first started this special section to kick-off the new year, I felt that it was important to recognize forward-thinking efforts to make each community a better place to live, work and raise a family.

After all, we constantly hear about how the world is crashing down upon us every day from “Chicken Little” -- a.k.a. the national media.

The national media feasts on generalizations and sensationalism.

We focus on what makes our local economy tick, and specifically the people behind those initiatives.

What’s always interesting to me is how some business that starts in somebody’s garage can grow into an international company employing 70 local people. With that said, stay tuned, we have some good news to share.
