Cheers & Jeers July 4th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

A big 3 Cheers for Columbia Cycle in Athalmer. For any of you with older models of the Sun Mountain push golf cart, Columbia Cycle are superb at keeping them on the fairway! Great job replacing my brake cable!

Cheers to the wonderful couple who came to our rescue after a bicycling mishap June 15th on Windermere Loop Road. Much appreciation for going out of your way to take our bikes and us home! Your kind and caring ways will always be remembered.

CHEERS to Rhiannon Tutty at Sunlife Financial for helping navigate through the financial maze of my executor duties. Rhiannon’s efforts provided clarity and results!

Cheers to the pharmacists at Lambert Kipp Pharmacy. Your heartfelt compassion and amazing service are truly appreciated.

Cheers to Denis from SD6 Bus Depot. You are so patient and flexible. The EMP kindergarten class is very grateful for all your trips this year. Have an awesome summer!

JEERS to the person who passed me on the shoulder of the road at Coy’s turnoff. Not only is it illegal to pass on the right of a two-lane highway it is illegal to drive on the shoulder. Keep up the good work.

CHEERS to the Westside Legacy Trail and the District of Invermere for making safe routes for cyclists!

Cheers to Melanie Ykema for her courage and resilience through such a traumatic ordeal, and for going public with her story, especially when victims are often blamed by friends, family, and complete strangers. By sharing, she may give others courage to come forward when they’ve been assaulted. Cheers to the Pioneer for publishing her story as well.

JEERS to the cyclists who continue to use the Westside Road as a bike lane and then get angry when we pass them. You are not a car.

Cheers to the staff at the Invermere Petro Canada and OK Tire for helping me with the flat tire on my trailer. Much appreciated.

Cheers to all those that remember and honk! We hear you at the house he hears you too.

Cheers to our wonderful family who made our 35-60-70 party so much fun. The surprise was awesome!

Cheers to a great family that organized a party for us. Especially to my sister Lisa. The beach looks greaton the deck.

Huge CHEERS go out to John and Margo of Fairmont Pizza and Ice Cream for treating our residents from Mount Nelson Place with the delicious ice cream when they came down for a visit on June 25th. It was a highlight to their day.

Jeers to drivers in Windermere who necessitate the implementation of measures to slow you down. An ugly sign was only put up after tasteful and tactful measures were callously stolen.
