TWIB is now accepting sponsors. I believe this will add value to the small businesses and artists as well as the readership. I also think it helps separate the days better.

Bisbee Person of the Week!
That happy busker you see around downtown Bisbee is CHRISTA LEIGH! She’s been serenading the people of Bisbee since 2013. Playing music is her full-time job supporting herself and her daughter. So if you see her, put a tip in her guitar case and tell her you saw her in This Week in Bisbee!
