VOLUME 4, NUMBER 15
Good Afternoon. It’s Thursday, January 19, 2023
We have a lot going on in the business community, including Les Schwab taking over Beggs (see story below). I’ve been told by more than one person that Luke Beggs had worked at the tire service shop since he was 14 years old. I’ll remember Beggs for being a major advertiser in the sports section at my former job, having the best food on the wine walk and willing to make space to support local groups raising money. Best of luck to him in whatever he plans to do next.
Thanks for reading!
