Cheers & Jeers

Cheers



to Al Miller of Invermere Home Hardware for giving the disabled workers a chance. Also, Cheers to his wife Lucy. There should be more compassionate people in the world like you two.

Jeers



to those people who feel they can ignore the campfire ban. This applies to everyone everywhere in B.C. no exceptions. It does not matter if you are on vacation or not; this is meant for everyone.

Jeers



to the person or persons that stole a homemade gazing ball from the front of my vacation home in Columere Park. My very dear friend made that for me so that I would have something to remember her by – she passed away in January. The globes that you took, keep them, they were just off of old solar lights that did not work anymore. The metal duck that was also taken was a gift that was made especially for my husband, it was a one of kind and has great sentimental value. I have pictures at home of both items, as they are both unique they would be very easy to identify and will post on Facebook when I return home. I am not sure when they were taken, I have not spent as much time tending to my landscaping and just noticed them missing July 19th. I would greatly appreciate getting both of these items returned, I am recovering from kidney cancer and do not need stress at this time! Please just put them back where you found them.

Cheers



to the Edgewater Recreation Society for sponsoring another community Pancake Breakfast. Good food and good company.

Jeers



to the people who let their children net painted turtles at Dorthy Lake. They are a federally protected species and are protected against harassment. P.S. Fruit Loops are not a part of their natural diet.

Cheers



to Sandra and Bruce for another amazing event of the Heart of the Rockies Triathlon! Your hard work and diligent planning is noticed by all of the racers. The course is definitely one of the most epic in Canada. This race brings both elite and recreational triathletes to the valley and puts our valley, and the HOTR triathlon on the map across the country. Great efforts by all volunteers and athletes alike! I’m grateful to be able to race in our beautiful town.

Cheers



to a Sailworks 5.6 Hucker day on Lake Windermere! Cheers mom and dad for the early Christmas present!

Jeers



to the person with a chainsaw that stole the beautiful historical stop of interest sign at Canal Flats. That sign has been up for 50 years. Hope your rec room looks really nice now.

Cheers



to the lady who gave us some welcomed bottles of water as we were attempting to change a flat tire on our red truck in the Mountain View Cemetery.

Cheers



Big Cheers to honest people, Madison, James, Lisa and Dan for caring and helping avert a possible situation…we will be much more careful and mindful…we appreciate your help!

Cheers



to the person that buried a Ken Doll under a well laid X at Kinsmen Beach. You made my son’s day and we will be hearing the story of the buried Pirate Treasure for years to come.

Cheers



to Les Strong on your hole in one at The Springs Golf Course. Too bad you did not see it, Doug and Forry.

Cheers



to the Summit Trail Makers for clearing the avalanche debris on the Brewer Creek trail. Our valley is fortunate to have volunteers who care and enjoy the beautiful wilderness.

Cheers



to the fellow and his two sweet girls who helped me out in the afternoon of July 7th after I fell outside of Choppers! I would really like to find and let them know how appreciated I am, so if anyone was there or has any info, please contact me! 403-478-0596.

Cheers



to the Riverside Golf Course Men’s Club and the resort staff for hosting a fabulous Tunnacliffe Tournament on Sunday afternoon. The four men’s clubs enjoyed the friendly competition on a well maintained course. An extra Cheers to the food & beverage staff for a wonderful meal.

Jeers



to the cigarette smoking kite flyer that takes up a quarter of the Jean Chabot Beach area by whipping his kite around at speeds that could knock a human out on impact… maybe choose a less populated area to enjoy your childish hobby before you hurt someone.

Jeers



to the parents who let their child take a poo by the dumpsters at the old community hall. There are public washrooms 2 minutes away from where you were.

Jeers



to the very rude guy with the two big dogs who was yelling at me after asking him to keep his dogs off my lawn and out of the flowerbeds and to maybe have them on a leash. Just some common sense and respect for others.

Jeers



to the inconsiderate campers from out of town that feel it is their right to make every tree their own personal toilet. Also, the signs posted that motorized vehicles are prohibited and the fact that barricades have been erected should be simple enough to understand that motorized vehicles are not allowed. One would think anyway.

Cheers



to The Pioneer for the Cheers and Jeers section for everyone to have a voice.
