Final 2016 Weekly Edition: December 30th, 2016

Shabbat Shalom, and Happy New Year 2017! The week began with Chinese Food paired with Klezmer at the BJCC and Bowling in Westminster; then saw public menorah lightings in Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette and Louisville, bringing lots of light into Boulder County nights.  New Year’s Eve marks the end of Chanukah 2016, just in time to ring in 2017, and not a moment too soon. BJN will be off for the holiday, and we’ll see you next year!

Have a great weekend, stay warm and enjoy this week’s stories in the BJN:

About Editor

I’m David Fellows, and I’ve served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I’ve written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop…).
