after which this:

As for the “Small business Saturday” protests? That was a tricky one. a native jeweler, a Twitter friend, posted this.

He acquired somewhat a little of native media attention for it, sort of became the spokesperson for the small groups in downtown Boise, taking a stand on their behalf. sadly, that attention introduced this:


It’s now not clear no matter if the spoil-in turned into political, in accordance with his signal, or just opportunistic when a person found out that there become a jewelry keep in a form of tucked-away region or both. The guitar and a family unit clock, of no price to any one but him, were the toughest losses for Mike. apart from being a jeweler, Mike’s a musician, and that guitar became basically particular to him and fairly plenty irreplaceable.

That’s a idea to raise into what goes to be one other definitely tough 12 months, however one which at the least has the light of hope in it.
