RONNIE G.. I think you $1500/mo salary @ Starbucks has gone to your head
If this is an April Fools Joke... how awful, to make people think something they love so dearly, has been mismanaged and taken over. How cruel!
This is an outrage!!! I have been in Boise since 2006 and RELIED on the BW to provide the kind of real journalism that some of us need in this world of endless bullsh*t.
I used to be a server at one of the more expensive downtown restaurants, and remember the owner/editor frequently from the lunch crowd. She was friends with the owner of the restaurant. I remember her having extravagant lunches including Oysters and Martini's, and wearing her over-priced clothing.
Maybe if she had been more creative in her marketing endeavors, been less indulgent with expenses, and a bit more subdued in her material goods, Boise would still have its voice.
We now have an editor of a BLANDLY named publication who has lived in Boise for two weeks!?!??! How is this person to know which direction to take the paper? What does he even know about the city? At this point, frankly, I don't care.
The last thing we need is someone from the outside coming in, directing the reporting of our local news/politics/happenings/opinions.
I will dearly miss the BW, and hope that Sally realizes that the financial mistakes and lack of guile she has shown (in creative marketing/advertising), is the reason for the downfall of the BW. The paper is a business, not a forum to put yourself in a spotlight among the higher ranks of society in Boise.
Shame on her for keeping this a secret till the last issue. SHAME on her period, she sold the paper to save herself!
Maybe cutting her own salary could have saved it. Maybe working more with local businesses, and spending less on lunch, going green, and restructuring could have saved the paper? Who knows. None of us knows the "real" truth. As is painfully true in ALL media outlets.
I will NOT read this "new" Treasure Valley Post. I have been to NYC several times since finishing school for business. I do not need someone's negative, convoluted, big city attitude or views, to pollute whats left of the "small town feel" in Boise.
Shame Shame Shame on you Sally!! You have truly let Boise down. You should be ashamed!!!
