Cheers and Jeers October 19th

Best and worst of the week

Cheers to the fall weather. You’re so cool!

Cheers to a couple of local businesses and people who provided exceptional customer service to me last week: Courtney at Lordco and Mike at OK Tire. Your service was outstanding and would never be experienced in a city. Much appreciated!

Huge Cheers to Justin and his incredible crew at Rocky River Grill for their sponsorship of Feed the Valley on October 9th in aid of the Columbia Valley Food Bank. It’s community minded citizens like that who make it possible for the Food Bank to be supportive of people in our valley. And Cheers to the many in our communities that showed up and supported this event.

Jeers to whomever is in charge of putting up and taking down the campfire ban and area restriction signs. Both are over, the signs should be removed by now.

Cheers to Jaye at Selkirk Cellular, the Telus Store, for helping two seniors set up their new I-Phones. You are a thorough and patient teacher. Your technical expertise was impressive.

Cheers! I have been to some great restaurants, but my recent experiences at the Hoodoo Bar and Grill blows all other experiences away. From the magnificent artistry of Pat Morris, Donovan Sawatzky and Cody Lang to the warm welcoming nature of the servers Natasha, Sonja and Cory. Very impressive! It is this type of product and service that encourages our visiting supporters to return….5 STAR RATING.

Major Jeers to the lowlifes who slashed all four tires and broke three windows on a car parked at Whiteswan natural pools. Obviously, you have a complete lack of brains to realize how much inconvenience you caused to three innocent people.

Cheers to the Pioneer for reporting about the Snake, he deserved what he got and hasn’t fooled everyone, especially the CRA!

Huge Cheers to Ms. Meehan for a brave no-brainer letter. I’ve written a couple letters and paid the price of voicing my opinion locally.

CHEERS to Elinore Florence and Dee Conklin for the lovely “Lest we Forget” posters that grace the main street of Invermere. What a great tribute to the local veterans. Well done ladies.

Jeers to the nonexistent concession at the arena. So many hungry people. We miss you Peter. You never missed a game and had the best fries EVER!

Jeers, Jeers, Jeers! Unbelievable!! The local sani dump has been permanently closed, really? Any suggestions as to what us campers, and tourists, should do with our trailer/camper sewer tanks?

Cheers to all the residents of Windermere who will go out and vote on the two Water issues presented before us. There is so very much to lose if residents are apathetic and the final outcome is taken totally out of our control. Cheers to Wendy Booth and the RDEK who has presented us the opportunity for the entire east side to speak as one voice with the second petition.

Cheers to the Columbia Valley Search and Rescue for the part they played in the search for Dorian Sawatzky. The valley is lucky to have a group of highly skilled volunteers working collaboratively with the RCMP and other emergency services.

A huge Cheers to all the neighbors who helped search for the missing little boy on Thanksgiving weekend, especially the ones who found him and placed a sweater on him to keep him warm. Cheers to the two RCMP officers who helped facilitate his return safely.

Cheers to the people who followed the rules of the new Westside Legacy Trail and left their dogs at home on the weekend! Others did not, and dogs were pooping everywhere- even in the middle of the pristine, new blacktop. How to show our appreciation to all the people who’ve made a tremendous effort to bring us this wonderful community amenity. Cheers to the people who showed respect for others.

Cheers & Jeers
