I love and appreciate the artwork Gary Lee. I recall when Ben was first placed in the US Bank plaza, depending on the season or holiday, you'd see Ben with sunglasses, or balloons, my favorite seeing the parents of new Linfield students taking digital photos of their child and Ben. One winter I was up super early, and saw snow falling, I wondered into town, the only person up was Ben. With no other soul in sight, he and I sat together quietly watching the snow fall. Anyone seen my old friends Abraham, Martin and John? At least I know where Abe is at. Thank you Gary Lee.


o jeez another one? Thanks for the anonymous donation, but I can't help but wonder what other charitable causes would be more deserving of this nice chunk of change. How much was it again? The price seems to be conveniently left out of the article. I seem to recall Mr. Franklin's price tag somewhere in the ridiculous range of $40k.
