Questioning the public value of Jumbo

Posted on October 17th, 2014 by


Dear Editor:
I spent this past Saturday (October 4th) at the Jumbo Wild Rally at kilometre 0.0 on the Jumbo Creek Forest Service Road. I was a participant in the rally, but I was also an observer, and three things in particular were of real concern to me, as a resident, elected official, and taxpayer of Invermere.  
I noted that four of our local RCMP force were also attending the rally — this means 40 per cent of our region’s police detachment were, literally, detached from the valley and were instead …

to the man in the truck who stopped to warn me I was about to pass a grizzly on my run on highway 95, and for driving closely until I was safely past! Double cheers to the couple who stopped to check if I was okay when they saw a truck “following” me!

Jumbo is a pie-in-the-sky resort

Posted on October 17th, 2014 by


Dear Editor:
What a magnificent day last Saturday (September 27th) was for a trip up to Jumbo! There were an awful lot of people up there and all seemed to be enjoying the beautiful surroundings and marvelling at the fall colours! 
I was there to have a look first-hand (yet again) at what was going on at Jumbo Glacier Resort (JGR) and, as I travelled by one avalanche slope after another, I marvelled, yet again, at the enormous amount of water pouring out of the mountains, ready to wreak havoc during the next …

to the person who picked up the mountain bikes on the side of the highway near Settlers Rd. on Sunday Oct 5th. Someone lost their bikes off their trailer; we tracked down the owners and left them for the owners to retrieve them. When they got there – the bikes were gone. If it’s not yours – it’s stealing! Do the right thing and turn them into the police.

Mobility devices by A.C.E

Posted on October 10th, 2014 by


As you may know, Access in the Community for Everybody (ACE) is a non-profit organization that has been working to remove barriers in the Upper Columbia Valley. We believe improving accessibility goes a long way to creating a healthier, more inclusive, age and family-friendly community.
We are writing to inform the community that through ACE, the District of Invermere, and other community members, there are now two unique mobility devices available to the public at no charge — a floating, rubber-tired beach chair which is designed for easy access over …
