From the Editor, or how the heck did you get this weird name?
In 2011, an informal group of 4th Ward Bay St. Louis residents started an online newsletter with the goal of improving the quality of life in our neighborhood. We came up with the name "4th Ward Cleaver," which seemed to perfectly convey our light-hearted purpose.
For most months over the next two years, the 4h Ward Cleaver was published by these volunteers. The last issue was posted in November 2013 with the hopes that other volunteers would take the reins, yet nothing ever quite panned out.
Since everyone seemed to miss the Cleaver, it's been resurrected and redesigned to be a full-scale online magazine with over twenty regular columns featured each month. It's funded entirely by sponsorships, while reader"subscriptions" are still free. The sponsorships also allow us to create quality content with a clean, peaceful personality - a true reflection of our community!
