When Jim West visited Las Vegas with his wife, Jen, she wasn't winning at the tables.

Jim told Jen that as far as he's concerned, he's already won.

He wasn't referring to gambling, but to his life, with a beautiful wife, beautiful children, health and a great business.

On Wednesday, a celebration took place at that business, Jim's Pizza Box, to commemorate its 35 year anniversary. But listening to West speak, it sounded like Wednesday's event was also a celebration of his family and friends.


A feature story about West was published on the front page of Thursday's Reflector. To read more, pick up a copy of that issue or subscribe to the e-paper for less than $1 per week and read it now.




Congrats Jim.

" Jims " is like " Cheers " where everyone knows your name ( and the food is great ) Thanks West's for making such a wonderful place to go.


Jim's ! a many of yrs and birthday parties etc.. Fact to all. If you want to start a local business in a small town. It DOES pay to get involved on city counsel. Lack of "competition" always helps.

Best wishes for 30 more years at this local treasure!


I grew up on Jim's Pizza Box, and even though I don't live in Milan anymore-I try to get there as much as I can.


I once ate at Jim's and spilled some pizza sauce on my shirt. The stain resembled an image of John Stamos. I have never washed the shirt to this day.


Congratulations! This is a great place!
