Calling all newspaper blogs in southwest Missouri

Does your newspaper have a blog? If so, I'd like to highlight it here and get feedback from others on it. Perhaps those writing for newspaper sponsored blogs should meet and put their heads together about ways to attract or expand an audience? How about a workshop about blogging for area journalists? Any interest in that type of program?

The one blog I am familiar with is the "Tiger Blog" done in the Republic Monitor. The focus of the blog is sports at Republic High School. The writer of the blog, Jeff Kessinger, says the "Tiger Blog" is "about all things Republic Tigers that we may or may not have had room to publish in The Republic Monitor. We welcome suggestions, comments, and contributions. " Feedback about the blog goes directly to the reporter making it one more way to connect with members of the community. That is, afterall, a big reason for having a blog.

Do you know of other local newspaper blogs?
