Today is Day 1.

Dear Readers,

Today I am excited to share two pieces of great news. WEHOville/Boystown Media Inc. has recovered all of its social media accounts. And we proudly display the CNPA logo, as our first day as a member of the California News Publishers Association.

As a matter of moving forward, one article titled ‘cease and desist’ has been removed from the database. You will find another editors note alongside our “Boystown Media – the first 120 days”. This concludes the 5-month transition to bring WEHOville home.

Throughout the 5-month period we did our best to hold things together. WEHOville received many letters, most in support, but other’s that did not want to see ‘dirty laundry’ in the news. To those readers I apologize. We were patient for a very long period of time and needed to bring this matter to a conclusion without a lengthy and costly legal process.

WEHOville was founded in 2012 by Henry Scott. His passion for the community created this brand that engaged all of us. We will always honor his legacy and aspire to be the best we can to make him proud.

We will now move forward to Phase 2, creating a larger team of contributors and celebrating West Hollywood. You will soon see some category and design updates. WEHOville is moving forward.

I would like to thank Nick Rimedio for his commitment to WEHOville and congratulate him again as a new partner in Boystown Media Inc. And I’d like to thank Brandon Garcia for his contributions and support. We did the best we could. And thank you Steve Martin and John Duran, and Justin Sobodash, three local lawyers who all stood on the same team to advise and engage us to a final solution.

The new WEHOville is ours. We are here to celebrate the City of West Hollywood and foster a vibrant and engaging discussion. Thank you for your support. WEHOville is home again.

Larry, I congratulate you on your retrospective.
In the future, may I suggest that you insert links to all the occasions you cited. They are to your own publication and new readers might like to be able to click on it and read the aforementioned article/s.

Nice mention re Mr Scott.

And seriously, you must use spell check or a human editor.

Good luck.
Happy for you and many of us.

Happy to hear the sad saga of Hank Scott has finally ended.I have a feeling all the turmoil of the COVID crisis did something to him and cause him to go off his rocker.Why keep plunging Wehoville into confusion and embarrassing himself?

Good luck to Mr. Block for continuing a local resource for news.Not everything is on TV.

There are always two sides to every story. Larry has his as does Hank (and, NO, I am NOT Hank Scott). Perhaps, in all fairness, Larry would be willing to share Hank’s perspective (which I have read). Just a suggestion.

I would encourage bringing back a calendar section similar to what WeHoVille had in its very early days. A community calendar of not just official city events, but events around the community pertinent to WeHo residents would be useful and help build community. I know it’s easier said than done, but I do really believe it would be helpful to your readers. Thank you for considering!

James Mills still there? He was very divisive and partisan.

Would you mind giving some examples of the partisan and divisive nature?

James was not divisive and partisan. Yes, please provide examples of articles he wrote which would support your view.

Wehoville has gotten better and better over these past months. I’m glad things worked for the best and your sticking with it. I’m not sure anybody else can tell the weho story with as much perspective.

Hey, all I did was to get you guys talking to each other. I am very glad to see there is a positive resolution. Today Wehoville is back to its’ original mission, providing quality news coverage for a dynamic community. Best of luck to both Larry and Henry.

Bravo Larry! You are doing a remarkable job. Hank does indeed deserve our thanks for creating this community forum and your gracious comment is noted. Moving forward in your capable hands!
