to my sweet Art for the best pulled pork and smoked ham in the valley. It was like the feeding of the 5000, with leftovers. You have my heart.

to the young people in the old swimming pool who left such a mess at one of the best views left. But a little cheer for the insight to build safe fires in a dry swimming pool. Remember this is private land!

Smarten up when it comes to sexual health

Posted on September 12th, 2014 by


Dear Editor:
At the risk of sounding amoral, I would like to address some of the issues brought up in the Faith column written by Pastor Rev. Fraser Coltman in the September 5th issue of The Pioneer.
Mr. Coltman tackled the difficult and controversial subject of sex and sexual education in his submission. While I don’t purport to be an expert, I do have some small experience in the field; I volunteered at our local chapter of OPT (Options for Sexual Health) as a reproductive health counsellor several years ago. 
My goal in …

Big jeers to the truck that nearly hit me at a quiet intersection on Tuesday morning. You almost T-boned a pregnant lady with a 1 year old in the back seat because you weren’t paying any attention to what you were doing.

District’s distasteful water a disgrace

Posted on September 12th, 2014 by


Dear Editor:
I have to give the maintenance workers, council and town of Invermere a superior grade when it comes to the beautification of the downtown core, new cenotaph area and the eye-pleasing clean appearance of the town in general.
I know my visitors often make complimentary remarks regarding the flower gardens, hanging baskets and entrance from the highway.
That all ends when they taste our drinking water. Good thing the plants like the water because it’s not fit for human consumption.
It’s a disgrace when viewed in context with such beautiful, …
