Good sportsmen, skilled players and a solid team are forming.

to Elli Bukovnik for helping me translate a letter to my now fiancé’s parents asking for their daughter’s hand in marriage. You saved them the pain of reading my broken Spanish and have helped earn me some cherished brownie points in the process. Muchas Gracias!

Huge Jeers for the person driving the blue pickup. When all other fishing derby and pond hockey people were asked not to drive though the Kinsman beach access they all were very kind, except this truck that plowed through the water and got people wet, and raced up the beach. Everyone used the Bayshore way except you. GROW UP.

to Dave McGrath for your to the point letter to the editor about giving with one hand and demanding taking with the other. Save the world by depleting the Columbia does seem rather insulting to our neighbours looking to make a home here rather than in The Big Smoke Condo town.

to the Jeers about neighbours with noisy heat pumps. Marginal technology in this climate and thoughtless placement near neighbour’s bedroom windows. From another “Sleepless in Invermere.”

to the retired businessman who thinks it is ok to use obscenities when speaking to a hard working individual. Remember what goes around comes around.

to our wonderful neighbours on both sides of our place, Kevin and Burt and Kaleb in Edgewater. We come out to the valley almost every weekend to find they have shovelled our driveway, deck and stairs in the winter. In the summer they mow the lawns. You could not ask for better neighbours.

to the inconsiderate snow removers in town that make crossing the main road virtually impossible for the elderly with walkers, who need to shop. Climbing up the ridges and down the other side onto the road is downright dangerous.

to the family that fed the little black outside cat as requested by the little cat’s owners. And Cheers to the cat owners who let their neighbors know they were going away – so all the neighborhood could keep an eye on the little black cat.
