Unsightly vehicle meant fun times

Posted on April 11th, 2014 by


Dear Editor:
After reading the article informing Invermere residents of a new bylaw, which would have B.C. residents’ cars and trucks towed off the town streets if they were deemed unsightly, I looked in my old photo album to see how unsightly my first car was that I owned in 1948.
My three school pals and I cut the roof off of my 1926 Dodge car so we would have an open top car (not a convertible). We were 18-year-old high school boys and spent the summer weekends cruising the summer resorts …

to the entire staff at the Fairmont Ski Resort. Kudos to everyone at the equipment shop office, ski school, lodge and lounge and all the lifties. Everyone there went out of their way to make sure everyone was looked after and always with cheer and smiles even during the stressful busy times. It was our family’s first time with seasons passes but definitely not our last; we appreciate all who made every visit a great experience.

History bound to be repeated

Posted on April 11th, 2014 by


Dear Editor
I would like to comment on the raucous exchange that took place in the B.C. Legislature on March 31st. This exchange was between MLA’s Norm MacDonald and Michelle Mungall on one side of the Jumbo Municipality issue and cabinet minister Coralee Oaks on the other side.
In defense of her support for the Jumbo Municipality, Minister Oakes mentioned the Resort Municipality of Whistler and how successful it has been. She neglected however to mention the fact that in early 1983 Whistler was on the verge of bankruptcy and was $27 …

to the redheaded cleaning lady (super star cleaners?) for reversing my wife’s truck out when she got stuck. I don’t know how it got there either! We will not be putting it in the sheltered parking again!

to the two of you, who think they know everything about everyone. The only way you could possibly know anything, is if you were actually there (impossible), or peeping in, or listening in (might be some laws against that). In any case, I would make an exception, just to prove to you what fools you are. Also believing or starting rumors doesn’t make you any less foolish. Old saying, “keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, open it and you remove all doubt”. Dedicated to all the …

Accessability improvements needed

Posted on April 11th, 2014 by


Dear Editor:
We are a class of 10 students in the College of the Rockies Health Care Assistant class of 2014, and were given an assignment on April 3rd to evaluate the wheelchair accessibility of downtown Invermere. We as caregivers wanted to experience what our future clients and patients may have to face in accessing amenities in our community that we as able bodied persons take for granted.
Our findings were as follows: we were very disappointed in the lack of proper functionality of our community, streets, businesses, sidewalks and crosswalks. We …
