Cheers & Jeers

Cheers



to anyone who can answer my question…What does the train do at 3:00 in the morning?

Jeers



to the lady at the petiton booth in Canal Flats. Chasing people down, pushing what you want and then being very rude and argumentative when it’s not the answer you want. And then later having your daughter personally bash someone online, simply because they pointed out your own actions!

Jeers



just doesn’t come close to expressing our shock at the total destruction caused to the wetlands at Twins Lake dam. Some ignorant ATVers have made trails of oil slicks and lasting negative impact along the creek that leads to Botts Lake. So sad and so utterly Stupid. Shame on you for giving the rest of us quaders a bad reputation. Hope you get caught!

Cheers



A great big huge Cheers to the Invermere Optometry Clinic for always being so accommodating. Always a pleasure coming in there. You guys rock.

Cheers



to Sign Artists for your amazing community support. Lori you are the best!

Cheers



Big Cheers to Jaye at Selkirk Cellular who went above and beyond in helping me track down my lost iPhone in Cranbrook. He lent me his personal phone during the 3 hour round trip and I couldn’t have it without his help! Small towns are awesome; try getting that service in a big city!

Jeers



to the people who let their dog poop in the backyard of 7525 Pinecone Lane in Radium. Don’t think we can’t see you pretending not to notice. If you walk your dog, be responsible! The big kicker is Radium supplies poop bags!

Cheers



to the Good Samaritan who helped me lift my tipped over motorcycle beside the Eddie Mountain Arena on Tuesday July 18th. Hope you know how appreciative I was.

Cheers



to the Invermere Fire Department for your quick response to the wildfire on Houlgrave Road.

Cheers



A heartfelt Cheers to Paul Hul – for his amazing rescue of 2 stranded boats out on the lake late at night last week – we would have spent the night drifting all over the lake without your unselfish late night rescue.

Cheers



to the fabulous baker, Alan, and the team at Sobeys for the wonderful birthday cakes provided to Columbia House each month. The added treats last week were loved by all! Keep up the good work!

Cheers



to Lori at Sign Artists. You always take such good care of us library folk! You’re the best!

Cheers



to Justin Atterbury and foreman Bruce for their open-gate, policy. So nice to have a helping hand.

Cheers



to the Market on Main in Radium Hot Springs.

Cheers



to Lloyd and Alexis Douglas for your immediate rescue response; launching your boat and skillfully, carefully, as a team, plucking kayakers from the lake, one adult and two children who were dumped in the violent wind storm last Thursday. You rounded up the errant kayaks and the other adult who was still afloat and delivered them all safely to shore. Our valley is a better place for your family having chosen to be part-time locals for 23 years.

Jeers



to the owner of the trees beside the Bank of Montreal. The one survivor is a beautiful Japanese Maple and it has been sadly neglected. It is a miracle that it still struggles on. Trees and the area beneath them require attention which is sadly lacking. Smarten up!

Cheers



to the senior citizen who took the time to remove the weeds under the Japanese Maple. More attention is needed to remove the excess soil in the planting hole. Anyone up for the job? Now what may we expect as a replacement tree in the other hole in the ground?

Cheers



to Arrowhead Brewery ladies for providing local beer for the Bull Riding in the Rockies last Friday night. It takes a women’s mind to come up with this fantastic plan! Cheers to the Rockies Hockey organizers for supporting the local refreshments of Arrowhead Brewery for the spectators.

Cheers



to Gerry, our RDEK rep for listening and working to get the Toby Benches residents access to the Lakes for water to fight fires.

Jeers



to the lady who budged to the front of the line at The Bakery on Wednesday because apparently your time was far more precious than the rest of us. Your level of rudeness was jaw-dropping.
