This year we decided to do something a little different with our annual Progress publication.
Instead of highlighting the projects going on in Cape Girardeau -- and there are many of them -- we decided to spotlight some of the people who are shaping our communities.
Being that this is 2012, we decided to highlight 12 people who have a distinct vision for the region's well-being, for their respective professional field or a combination of both.
In the advertising content of this publication, we gave businesses the opportunity to share their vision and plans with us as well. We asked questions relating to vision and "big picture" ideas. Our advertisers had some very interesting things to say about where their businesses are headed.
Thank you for taking the time to read our visionary version of our annual Progress edition. We hope you'll find it compelling and inspiring. Here's to all of our many visionaries in the community and all of the work that makes it happen.
