Letter to the Editor

Stoddard County is in the Bootheel

Monday, November 13, 2006

To the editor:

In the Nov. 9 editorial "Pride of place." the following question is presented: Is Bloomfield, Mo., in Missouri's Bootheel? Bloomfield is the county seat of Stoddard County, and Stoddard County is reflected in all maps of the Bootheel as a Bootheel county. So Bloomfield must be in the Bootheel.

M.I. HOBBS, Dexter, Mo.
