to the person who so thoughtfully cleared our driveway in Canal Flats on Willow Ave. We are new residents and what a surprise it was to see when we pulled up with our U-Haul on Dec. 27th! The great welcome is much appreciated!

to Aaron at the Source. I came to you in a panic and was more than upset. You calmly and sensitively helped to solve a major problem for me. Much appreciated and know that your store will get my business before any other in your field from now on. You are a valuable local resource.

Wildlife feed stations worth a try

Posted on January 13th, 2017 by


Dear Editor:
No matter how much fur or feathers they wear, those bitterly cold nights have got to be miserable for our wildlife. Mortality is high. Especially if they can’t find enough to eat. In this land of plenty where we waste 40 percent of our food, you’d think communities could organize food banks for wildlife.
Urban wildlife… is it that they moved into town, or they always lived here, and we just stuffed more houses, condos and golf courses around them? Regardless, I think wildlife can be conditioned to move out …

to my sister for being born. When I was just an embryo, I put a message in a discarded can of Fanta Grape and threw it into the ocean of amniotic goodness. It read, “Any fetus-es-es that succeed me must totes be the coolest person in like, 4 ev’s.” And so it was. xoxoxOMGxoxo

to Brady from Wolfe Mining who stopped and picked up 2 stranded motorists in the park when our car broke down. It was dark and SUPER cold and even though it was going to make you late for work, you took the time to drive us to Radium so we could call a tow truck. Your kindness is appreciated!

Trails are needed in digital age

Posted on January 13th, 2017 by


Dear Editor:
In response to the letter submitted by Norm Hendricks and published in the January 6th issue: Anyone purporting to know what others think is the height of arrogance. Further, one opinion is not representative of a group.

Local roads need more attention

Posted on January 13th, 2017 by


Dear Editor,
In response to the January 6th article about “Mainroad CEO visits East Kootenay in wake of complaints”: I have been meaning to write and complain for some time about winter road clearing and care in this immediate area of the RDEK.
I drive the Panorama Road daily. It is not cleared on a timely basis after a snowfall and it does not receive adequate sanding at all.
Access to Lower Lakeview Road from Athalmer Road is a hazard all winter long, in spite of two vehicles going over the …

to the RCMP for saying they are going to crack down on seat belts when fentanyl is running rampant in this town and people are dying. Everybody knows who the drug dealers are around here so why can’t you do something about it?
