Larry sends me interesting things that he finds ranging from disagreeable Idaho politics to video game discoveries. It is no surprise to anyone that last year was a difficult year for Boise Weekly. We hunkered down and worked hard and made it through the year. But not without help from many people. We all took salary cuts, freelancers reduced their pay and we negotiated with vendors.
My friend Larry offered to help in a creative non-traditional way. He placed and paid for ads to support organizations that he wanted to help. If you recall seeing ads for Link TV and Smile Train in Boise Weekly last year, it is worthwhile to point out that these ads were paid for by my friend Larry. He is a trailblazer and I thank him for his commitment to freedom of speech and the independent press.
Larry is running another ad for Smile Train in our March 24 edition in celebration of his birthday. By supporting Smile Train when you see the ad, you'll be doing your piece to prove the value of supporting a worthy cause.
Thanks Larry. I truly appreciate your support of Boise Weekly. And Happy Birthday. I hope to meet you someday soon.
