Thank You, Missoula

by jhwygirl

On behalf of all b’birders, I want to thank everyone that took the time to vote 4&20 blackbirds Best Local Blog in the Missoula Independent’s 16th annual Best of Missoula.

Left in the West got the silver, with NewWest bringing in the bronze. That’s some pretty impressive company.

Speaking for me, at least, I have to give a HUGE thanks to both Matt Singer and Jay Stevens. Without them laying the tracks, I don’t know that I’d be blogging. It was Matt who gave me my first ‘kick in the ass’, and without Jay’s continual prodding (and inviting me into his living room), I might of just taken up crocheting instead.

So blame it on them.

As for Pete, problembear, JC and carfreestupidity – all more than deserve the kudos in their own right that The Indy and its readers put out there today.

ALSO RECOGNIZED in The Best of Missoula 2010 issue – and I adore admire and love on each one of these awesome wonderful selfless super-smart people equally are Missoula’s Best Activists Ellie Hill, Jamee Greer and Matt Singer.

IMNSHO, they are the Best Activists In Montana. Just sayin’.

I won’t ruin the rest of it for everyone who hasn’t read it yet – but one more thank you has to go out to the Best Nonprofit Organizations. All of ’em – and problembear put together a wonderful list of those here in Montana and MissoulaThe Poverello Center, the Missoula Food Bank, the Clark Fork Coalition and Animeals were all recognized for their tireless work for Missoula. All deserve that thank you and the recognition.

    Of all the “lefty” blogs I read, 4&20 is my favorite. Lots of conflicting opinions and it’s good to read both sides.

  2. Very cool and appropriate. Congrats. :)

  3. JC

    And of course the biggest thank you has to go out to jhwygirl for all she’s done to keep this site lively, entertaining and relevant! Her humbleness in handing out accolades to her predecessors and community notwithstanding, 4&20 would not be what it is today without her perseverance in the face of a stiff wind blowing in from the right, and constant flack from the left.

  4. Every single one of you 4&20 blackbirds win high praise from your south-of-the-border neighbors.
