A year ago this week, we were finally ready.

Thanks Amy! The Advocate shows us what a community news outlet should be. I'll bet other small towns are taking notice.


Thank you to your entire staff and volunteers for taking the leap and for providing the community a DAILY news source. Indianola is a great place to live and it's important that everyone has the opportunity to know what is going on, the good and the bad, and have CURRENT news about meetings, deaths, etc.

Keep up the good work, I know many people who really appreciate it!


Thank you so much for doing this. I read it first every morning and recommend it to everyone with an interest in Indianola. You are doing a good job of keeping us informed.

This was a fittingly celebratory essay for the Independent Advocate and the entire community which it serves.

One omission -- unless these old eyes are failing me again : Donald Bohlken deserves a mention as an essayist creating robust, informative discussions in the Independent Advocate.
