From The Daily Camera (Boulder, CO):
Residents of one south Boulder neighborhood can get the Boardman Camera personally delivered once a week by the publisher (who is also the editor, reporter, illustrator, ads salesman, circulation manager and distributor): 11-year-old Eli Boardman.
Last weekend, Eli, who started the paper when he was just 6, celebrated the Boardman Camera’s five-year anniversary and 200th edition with a neighborhood party.
The Boardman Camera is Eli’s second attempt at running a newspaper. The first incarnation, the Boardman Enterprise, began when Eli was 3 and fizzled out after a bit. But the Camera has gained a strong following.
Naturally my first thought was: Fuck this kid. But to be truthful, I’m only angry with myself for not moving forward with my own hyperlocal project. Fuck me.
Time to get down to business.
