Today, join me in celebrating the birthday of one of my oldest and dearest friends and business partner. Louie turns 50 this year!
I have known Louie since September of 1987, when I joined Lerner Newspapers. Louie was already there, havibng worked part-time through high school.
We have had a lot of adventures over the years. We survived Lerner and started Arch News Agency, our printed materials distribution company.
We have gone to Spring Training, Chicago Bears mini-camp, Las Vegas and other fun trips. We have run the Chicago Marathon together twice.
I was there when he met his future wife Effie. I stood up at their wedding and watched as his family grew to include three great boys. I became part of his extended family.
Louie is a great friend and business partner. I couldn't ask for anyone better. It really has been a pleasure knowing Louie for these almost 30 years. I love him like a brother.
Happy birthday Louie. Enjoy your day!
Louie Atsaves and me in Chicago, IL-October 2015.
