I am writing to thank The Bolivar Commercial for its 104 years of service to this community. This newspaper has provided the citizens of Cleveland and Bolivar County with news, sports, recipes, obituaries, public service announcements, letters to Santa and much more over the years and for many has been their sole source of news and information. I remember when Cliff Langford was the editor. I have personally worked with Norman Van Liew, Mark Williams and now Diane Makamson. I want to thank all of the members of The Bolivar Commercial staff that have served this newspaper through the years, but I especially want to thank the current staff-Diane Makamson, Denise Strub, Coretta Bell, Andy Collier, Donell Maxie, Kevin Edwards, Sharon Clinton, Amber Yates, Brittany Parker, James Wadlington, Sylvester Franklin, and Spencer Haywood for all of their hard work in writing, reporting and bringing the news to us. You should all be proud of the job that you have done, and we are going to miss The Bolivar Commercial. Thanks for a job well done!
