Not to be left to dusty, musty paper, the Mansfield Mirror is available online with RSS feed; right up there with the big boys. Mansfield Mirror
At the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce website and my own regional blog: Ozarks Mountain Country/Ozarks Mystique you will find more information during the year regarding this remarkable and admirable milestone for the Mansfield Mirror. This would be a good year to subscribe to the weekly paper and build a collection of information about the historic Ozarks.
The Ozarks has long attracted people who wanted to live here in the rolling hills that make up the Ozarks Mountains and the Ozarks Plateau where the land is vital and nourishing. The mounain area with swift rivers which now are tamed by dramatic lakes had attracted tourists for generations. The people are hardworking, friendly, but appreciate solitude. If you choose to investigate the Ozarks as a place for your next home, you will find a plethora of talented skilled neighbors who are compassionate and smarter than they may have been given credity for.
