Lesnick’s retirement the end of an era

Print Article

Dave Lesnick retired the other day. The next day the Daily Inter Lake was printed and life went on. But for those of us who know Dave, it really is an end of an era.

In a time when social media and internet information challenges the popularity of printed news sources, Dave managed to maintain a level of professionalism and informative observations that kept people not only picking up a copy of the paper, but also cutting some of his articles out for their scrapbook!

Dave Lesnick always displayed a love for high school sports and the athletes involved in them as well as a tremendous respect for the coaches that led the programs. He was interested in telling the story, not stirring the pot. Dave understood that the local sports section was a place where young kids could see their accomplishments shared and celebrated with the community. A true sports guy, writing about sports!

So, thanks Dave, for your years of providing us with a reason to get up early on Sunday morning and for being a true friend of our sporting community. You have been a consummate professional and genuine nice guy to work with.

Thanks for the cookies and GO BADGERS!

— Jim May, Libby
