Time for the look back at 2006 and look forward to 2007.
The GUARDIAN realizes the majority of stories tend to be on the subject of growth, but that single topic tends to consume the local mainstream media and government. There is no end to it. Funding, construction, jobs, economy, environment, traffic, schools, planning, zoning, air quality–everything is linked to GROWTH.
That said, instead of tooting our tiny horn with a list of dubious accomplishments, we would like to hear from you.
What were your favorite stories and your least favorites? Go through the monthly archive links at the right to refresh your memory. In addition to comments, we would like to see more reader generated stories and photos.
Got a complaint about signs, code violations, or just want to share something of interest? Send it to the GUARDIAN and if we think it is appropriate, we will post it.
It has been difficult to keep our sense of humor (something we like to share) with all the sins of local government and developers surrounding us on a daily basis.
However, one humor highlight of the year has to be the dudes who drove a Zamboni to Burger King for a midnight lunch break. The BOISE GUARDIAN was even quoted in the GUARDIAN of LONDON on that one! The story truly went around the world.
We find the weekly “Mayor Hotline” transcript to be a rich source of material. The GUARDIAN stopped including the graffiti calls and rearranges the entries according to interest or importance. That has improved the feature quite a bit.
We wish you all the best for the holidays regardless of the God you choose to worship or ignore. The world will ba a better place only through the efforts of people like YOU. Please share your thoughts and respect those who may think differently.
