Skip Oppenheimer is one of those local business leaders who gets involved in the community. He was the founding chairman of the Idaho Business Coalition for Educational Excellence, now called Idaho Business for Education. Hes on the St. Lukes Health System board. The Oppenheimer family owns a development company that has built some prominent Downtown buildings. They operate some food and related businesses that I suspect even most in-the-know Boise business leaders know little about.
Business reporter Bill Roberts covered Oppenheimer as an education and religion reporter. Roberts sought an interview for a Business Insider story, and Oppenheimer agreed. The result is this weeks cover story, beginning on page 20. I hope you enjoy it.
If there are other Idaho business people who have made a mark whose stories you think we should tell, please email or call.
People are cracking their skulls on the technological pavement in record numbers, Neal Custer and Dylan Evans write in their latest Protecting Your Assets column on page 7. No firewall or software update can address the worst security vulnerability we are faced with today: human nature.
Skulls cracking on pavement is a powerful image. Kudos to Custer and Evans for reminding us how a well-chosen metaphor adds impact to a column or story.
