Our Program Chairman for October, Mr. Jim Szatkowski, has another interesting guest lined up for us this week. His special guest for this week will be Mr. John Hess, General Manager, Boise State Radio, talking about the Stations' programming and reach. If you would like to learn more about John, check him at "". However, the best and most fun way to learn about John would be just to show up at Elmer's on Friday and learn about him in person.

Some bad news: We lost an old-time Club member this week. Vince Johnson passed away on Monday, October 5th, of natural causes at age 93. Vince went back to the Black Angus days and was one of the "good guys".

And on a lighter note, Jim Renell mentioned how many Borah Freshman football players it takes to change a light bulb? None, that's a Sophomore Class!!

Elmer's on Friday, meet and greet John Hess!
