We encourage you to try our new Marketplace directory of businesses.

Whether you're looking for a good place to eat such as Greek Bros. or a place to get your car repaired such as Port Lavaca Auto, our Marketplace directory might be your answer. Digital directory Terry Owen and his team have been working hard to roll out the new service.

We intend for it to be the most complete, most accurate and most interactive business listings in the Crossroads region. I've written before about how little I use the phone book these days when the computer is almost always at my fingertips. We're betting more people will develop similar digital habits in the future.

This director supplements and, which we introduced earlier this year. We've worked with an industry leader, the Lawrence Journal World, to develop this site. We hope you use the free service, let us know how well it suits your needs, and what else you'd like to see added.
