EVERYDAY MEIGS IS A NEW FEATURE FOR THE MEIGS INDEPENDENT PRESS. EACH WEEK A PERSON OR PLACE IN MEIGS COUNTY, OHIO WILL BE DESCRIBED WITHOUT REVEALING THE NAME OF SAID PERSON OR PLACE.

Readers are invited to guess the identity of the person or location described for one week. Readers must email their name and contact information along with their guess to everydaymeigs@gmail.com to participate. One correct answer will be randomly selected from all the correct guesses submitted. The winner will receive a prize for their correct answer. Please do not comment in the post on Facebook as they will not be counted. Each week a new person or location will be described and the previous week’s person or location will be revealed.

Through a partnership with Lazy K Designs, winners will receive a tumbler with either a Meigs Indpendent Press logo or a Lazy K Designs logo. If you would like to check out some of the customization Lazy K Designs can do for you, check out their Facebook Page here.

Everyday Meigs is about saluting those that work everyday in the county and to take notice of locations we may see everyday, but possibly take for granted. The Meigs Independent Press salutes those that work to make Meigs County a better place, everyday.
