Did you know that the month of July was named for the historical Roman leader, Julius Caesar? In fact, he created the basis of the 365-day calendar model we now follow.

The month of July is a busy one for us all, with kids out of school, vacations and simply trying to beat the heat. We also have the privilege to observe a holiday that I know we are all passionate about – Independence Day – and I hope you take a few moments to see our American Pride-inspired Picture This photo contest display on pages 8-9. These patriotic images, sent in by our readers, are extremely moving and inspiring.

And while we are in the spirit of honoring the month of July, did you know it is also National Watermelon Month? There’s a fun fact for you!

To change gears slightly, I have another question for you. Did you know that Today in Mississippi is the most widely circulated publication in the entire state?

That’s a pretty significant fact, right? We print and mail to more than 445,600 people in Mississippi, covering every corner of the state, every month.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to share with you a special announcement about Today in Mississippi – in September, we will introduce a brand new look for the publication and will debut it as a high-end, full-color magazine. While the look will change, our commitment to you remains the same: to deliver a quality, family-friendly print publication filled with valuable and interesting content.

And thanks to the upcoming increase in page count that a magazine format will allow us, we will be able to share even more of the features that you have come to enjoy – including news from  your electric cooperative, outdoor life, home and gardening tips, new recipes, travel destinations, events, columnists and highlights on many of the people and places that make Mississippi such a wonderful place to live and visit.

That big announcement brings me to my last question. Did you know that right now, in this month of July, your local electric cooperative and the statewide Electric Cooperatives of Mississippi are busy at work preparing Today in Mississippi to be the very best possible product for you, our valued readers?

On behalf of Mississippi’s network of electric cooperatives, always know that it is our collective goal to celebrate, with you, the exceptional offerings and lifestyle that make life in Mississippi so special. Thank you for being a part of Today in Mississippi.
