Local history is something I always find interesting. A member of our staff has a collection of books on Hannibal, Quincy and Ralls County history, and was kind enough to let me take a look through them.

The Best Cities in the Tri-States: Which is Your Favorite? [Poll]

I'm always seeing lists online of "the coolest cities in America" or "the best cities in America" or "the best cities to ... fill in the blank." Every time I see one of these stories, I read it.
