  2. Same to you and Mrs Editor along a HUGE thanks you for all you do with the blog.

    We appreciate so much your concern about our great city.

    We consider you site to be one of the very, very few that is an actual “news site” and not just another media outlet that regurgitates the press releases of those trying to mislead the citizens of Boise.

    My you be blessed to continue on your wonderful work throughout all of 2018!

    Happy New Year!

    EDITOR NOTE–Gosh! Now I can’t call it quits after the New Year. Thanks for the kind words.

    Merry Christmas to Dave Frazier, and to all of the readers of the Guardian!!! May all of us in Boise and the surrounding Treasure Valley come together, across any other differences we may have, to fight peacefully and positively for all that makes our hometown especially lovely and livable.
    We’re all in this together, interconnected as neighbors, and able to unite in a Happy New Year to preserve Boise as a place for the common people to enjoy, as a city like no other.
    Keep Boise Unique!!!

  4. Merry Xmas Guardian.

    Looks like I may have bought my last Smoky Davis turkey for the holidays. But as you learn in life every thing will come to a end.
    We think we have the answers, know what’s right and wrong, good and bad, best for ourselves and other people. But we aren’t always right. There’s always more than one version. There are many perspectives that are valid. Keep yourself open to that truth.

    Hoping you had your have a great New Year.

  5. For me, Christmas is an opportunity to reflect on how blessed I am individually, and how blessed my “community” is.

    Many years ago as a child, Christmas was more “magical,” but I can still get a glimpse of that magic as I watch my three local grandchildren open presents.

    As a kid, I was always puzzled that Santa would put a couple oranges, and some in-the-shell mixed nuts, in my stocking. After all, I could eat an orange any time I wanted… and I preferred my nuts salted in a can, instead of in their shells. But since, I’ve come to realize that my father, who grew up in poverty during the Great Depression, rarely had a luxury like fresh oranges and tasty nuts. Perhaps “never knowing want” is a double-edged sword; I certainly tend to take my good life for granted.

    I’m blessed to live in a community where I’m surrounded by good, compassionate people, and where we live in relative peace and prosperity.

    (I, too, tip my hat to the Boise Guardian for keeping us “in the loop,” as well as sharing his gift at photography with us.)

    May your days be merry and bright.

  6. Agree with J&M! Many Many thanks for your contribution and hard work. Very much appreciated!

    To your health and happiness in the year to come!

  7. I find it interesting that you people all celebrate (or at least condone) Christmas.
    I thought Christmas is the worst day of the year for leftists.

    Family, joy, happy children, Christianity, eating meat, good will to all men, enjoying the bountifulness that capitalism enables, and yes even F-35s.

    It’s literally everything you people hate.

    LD, this must be your first time…the readership here is pretty diverse. There is a lot of territory from “Easterner,” to “Bikeboy” to me, and I appreciate them all, and the Guardian.

    It is disappointing that you affix “hate” to good people for their advocacy of ideas.

    Regardless, it was a glorious Christmas in the valley, and I wish all the best as we enter 2018.
