Cheers to you in your pink pajamas with the penguins on them, me in my best Friday night flannels. When you brushed past me in the Sobeys produce aisle I think we both felt the sparks.

Urban deer are not natural

Posted on March 20th, 2015 by


Dear Editor:
In response to Mr. Kazakoff’s letter re: accounting (March 13th Pioneer), I’m guessing he hasn’t lost thousands of dollars in landscaping trying to make our town more beautiful, as we have at Panache (yes, they were “deer proof”). We had an unfenced garden in the centre of town in the ‘70s and ‘80s without any deer problems. They are not natural in town. Has anyone mentioned Lyme disease in the conversation?
Thanks,
John Nairn

Cheers to Cindy Mackay and Laura Wingert at Kootenay Insurance for your great customer service. I went in to get a quote for house insurance and they told me the one I already had was the best option but how I could change it to save 15%. I am not a client of theirs so had to go to my insurance agent and get the change done but they treated me like I was. Great work girls!

Big huge CHEERS to Dr. Page and the team of fantastic nurses who helped me deliver my baby girl on March 9th! We’re all very lucky to have such amazing, caring health care professionals in our little valley. You ladies made delivering in Invermere a truly great experience.

Jeers to those members of the local mountain biking community who are marking, constructing, and publicizing unauthorized and illegal trails in our provincial and national parks, national wildlife areas, provincial wildlife areas, sensitive wetlands, rare grasslands, private property, and pretty much anywhere else they can think of. You are showing a complete lack of respect for our protected areas, wildlife, and other valley residents.

Jeers to the young mom who lied and stole a purple unicorn, brown dog, bear, and many books and toys from the ministry that protects children, right in front of her son. Show him you can right a wrong by returning them.

Cheers and another hug to Rob for my ‘tall skinny fog’ he bought me last Friday at Kootenay Coffee. That was just so nice, it deserved a hug.

Cheers to Andy. A regular fixture in the weekly RCMP reports, he is moving east to avoid any additional charges being filed. Good luck (with the new job) and outrunning the law.

A postcard from the past

Posted on March 20th, 2015 by


Dear Editor:
The picture that you have put in the Historical Lens today (February 20th Pioneer) was taken in the mid 1980s. The person on the left wearing the light coloured shirt and holding the garden hose is Audra Messerschmidt.
This was made into a postcard — I was sent one in 1988 when I was a Rotary Exchange student from Invermere in Tokyo, Japan. It was a great pick-me-up memory of home!
Thanks for reprinting it,

Owen Picton

Jeers to the “Friends” who borrow $$, but can’t seem to pay back. We (some of us) work hard for our $$ and know how to spend or not.
