The Benton County Enterprise

The economy in Warsaw, Missouri in Benton County relies heavily upon visitors coming to Truman Lake, water controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  When the government shut down earlier this month so did all the facilities the Corps controls along the lake.

Hellen Cook's disappearance came to our attention during our last conversation with The Benton County Enterprise publisher James White.

On this edition of 90-Mile View, James is back with the rest of Hellen's story: who she was beyond the headlines and what her family is doing to improve the process of finding lost loved ones in the future.

According to the 2010 census, the population of Warsaw, Missouri is 2,127 but in the summer this town along Truman Lake sees an influx of tourists and summer residents. Keeping an eye on it all is The Benton County Enterprise publisher James White.

Today James explains how long "the season" runs and what it means to the year-round residents and business owners of Warsaw. Plus, we catch up on the latest news coming out of the Benton County.

James White is the fifth-generation publisher of the Benton County Enterprise, the weekly paper started by his great, great grandfather in 1879 down in Warsaw, Missouri.
