Happy Birthday to All of Us: 8-Year WCF Anniversary Party

It's party time at Weber County Forum!

Strap on your party hats and crank up the music folks...

(56 in "Dog" Years)
We're happy to announce that Weber County Forum celebrates its Eighth Birthday today, O Gentle Ones. And upon reaching that mind-boggling milestone, we'd like to reach out to our entire WCF community to thank everyone for their support and contributions over the years.  Without your unflagging online participation since our initial post in 2005, we couldn't have become what we are today... the most robust community blog in the whole danged blogosphere!

During the course of our existence we've definitely made our mark.  We've spoken truth to power. We've knocked down harebrained schemes and budget-busting projects one after another.  We've covered local and state elections at a depth, pace and level of irreverence un-exceeded by anyone. We've deeply dissected issues and stories that even our own home-town newspaper tiptoed around, inexplicably ignored or wouldn't even touch with a ten-foot pole. Heck... we've even reunited lost dogs with their owners. And in the process we've also had plenty of fun, of course... and yet we've done so much more.  All-in-all, it's been a pretty great ride so far.

But we're certainly not yet done. As we now embark upon our ninth year of stirring the political pot,  there's still plenty of government corruption, bureaucratic malfeasance and plain old-fashioned incompetence left to be exposed and discussed. And yes; knowing more than a little bit about Utah politics, as we do, we also have a funny "sinking" feeling that there's much more to come.

So once again we'd like to offer our ever-humble thanks to each and every one of  you whose loyal support, readership and contributions of ALL kinds we've enjoyed over these past eight years. And as we look forward to the future, we'll thank you in advance for continuing to stick with us.

Time to break out the "bubbly," O Gentle Ones.

Happy birthday, every one of you.

Yes. It's party time at Weber County Forum!

Another birthday come & gone. You don't look a day older Rudi. Thanks for keeping the status quo in check!

Thanks for the kind words, folks. From your blogmeister's point of view this "project" has been a true labor of love. Hard to believe it's been eight years, innit?

Rudi - congratulations on 8 years of skewering the pompous and arrogant amongst Ogden's political class.

If you had not started the WCF, had you not written such a great string of editorials exposing the perfidy of certain elected and appointed officials and most importantly had you not provided a public forum where the voice of the people could be heard, the citizens of Ogden might never had known what an incompetent and dishonest poser a certain height and integrity challenged ex-mayor and his posse of incompetents actually were.

I'm actually surprised that you were not some how taken out by that evil band of black hat wearing clowns before now.

You and the WCF have done a great service for the citizens of Oz.

Special thanks, Ozboy. Inasmuch as YOU were amongst the first WCF commenter way back in 2005, hearing from you now, even though you've "fallen out of the habit" of regularly commenting on WCF, means a lot to your blogmeister.
