Judging by the mud flying, it would seem – splat – local elections are well underway across B.C.
If the campaign turns out anything like the opening acts, there's going to be some hefty dry cleaning bills this October.
So what does the field of candidates look like after the dust settled and nominations closed?
L.V. Rogers Bombers swept to a 4-0 record during a Junior Girl’s Fieldhockey tournament Saturday in Oliver.
LVR defeated Dr. Knox of Kelowna 5-1, host South Okanagan Hornets 3-0, Maple Ridge 3-2 and Pen Hi Lakers 4-0 to claim top spot in the tournament.
Despite finishing September with a loss Saturday to the Columbia Valley Rockies Saturday in Invermere, there are plenty of positives to take away after the opening month of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season for the Nelson Leafs.
Nelson remains in top in the Murdoch Division, posting an impressive 7-1 record to lead the Beaver Valley Nitehawks by two points.
Following seven years of participation with Nelson’s 81 Hampton Gray Sea Cadet Corps, Coxswain CPO1 Sebastian Bodine is leaving.
However, before the Nelson native left he was presented with the Royal Canadian Legion Cadet Medal of Excellence during a recent ceremony.
On the eve of the calendar flipping to October, Mother Nature sent a message to drivers in the Boundary, Kootenay Lake and West Kootenay regions that winter is right around the corner in the form of a Special Weather Statement.
Anyone driving Highway 3 from the Paulson Summit and Kootenay Pass should be aware of an early season snowfall.
In a media release, BC RCMP Traffic Services are reminding drivers to be prepared for the changing, and sometimes challenging, driving conditions as the winter months near.

When governments get 100 per cent of the power from just 40 per cent of voters, something’s not right.
Election after election, a minority of voters gets to decide our government, and then that government gets a four-year dictatorship. It’s minority rule, plain and simple. And it’s unfair and undemocratic.
In Nelson, this year's BC Homelessness Action Week (HAW) October 8 - 12 will focus on the realities and challenges of Nelson and area youth who are at-risk or homeless and explore solutions that can prevent their paths into homelessness and help find paths out of homelessness.
Nelsonites head to the polls Saturday, October 20 to elect a new council and mayor for the next four years.
There are three candidates vying for the Mayor’s Chair — incumbent Deb Kozak and challengers John Dooley and Bern Brown.
The list of candidates vying to lead Nelson City Council more than tripled the number of seats available in chambers at 310 Ward Street after nominations closed.
The Nelson Daily understands the difficulty facing voters to learn more about what each individual candidate brings to the table.
