River ban is needed

Posted on July 29th, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
Who is this irresponsible boat owner on the Riverside Golf Course section of the Columbia River on Friday, July 22nd? He comes flying around a corner and has to cut his engine because of people in the river. Not only floaters, kayaks, canoes, but people swimming downstream. These boats should not be allowed on the river, not just for safety, but for environmental reasons.

to aggressive drivers, please leave your aggression at home when you come to visit our peaceful valley. We only beep our horns to greet a friend in passing, and we don’t speed up and roar through the right hand turn lane so we can cut in front of everyone ahead of us. Have some respect for others on the road!

to drivers who give me the finger or worse still, don’t even see me asking you to slow down on 13th Avenue because you are into your coffee or on your cell. May the Karma Master of Speeding Tickets get your number soon. Let our children and pets live.

to whoever is maintaining the Invermere sign at the Crossroads. The flowerbed design is covering the bottom part of the sign that lets drivers know about the downtown businesses and Panorama — fix the flowers or raise the sign!

to the tree trimming company that parked their trimmer right in front of my business and started trimming trees at 8:30 a.m. It would have been nice if you could have started later or parked your extremely noisy equipment down the block a little farther.

A BIG Cheers to Runners RV in Cranbrook for the excellent service we received on our purchase. When we purchased a used RV with no warranty, we expected that we would be responsible for the little issues we had. No Way! They took care of us at no charge. We are enjoying our purchase and will certainly recommend your company to anyone looking for an RV.

to Bob. My wife and I were biking from Fairmont and our bike tire popped. We hitched a ride from Bob. He saw our predicament and stopped to help. That valley hospitality is what makes this place special. Much appreciated.
