Ringing in the New Year often leaves us with the echo of ringing in our ears and groggy thoughts for the first day of the year. Whether you follow George Clooney’s advice to avoid hangovers in the first place, sweat it out in a workout like Daniel Craig, or resort to the trusty “hair of the dog” like many others, clearing our heads after the big party is critical. So here’s the Sentinel’s...

I’ve been trying for days to pen a year-in-review column, and God knows there’s no lack of material. Just within our little business world, there’s been the launch of The Trail Champion, The Castlegar Source’s Facebook supremacy (yes, that was a little bit of a brag, I’m so very delighted to see 1,632 people following our headlines on Facebook) and the thrill of welcoming several new...

At this time of year when the snow is deep and we take time to relax with family, what could be better than turning up the heat, and snuggling in with a blanket and popcorn to watch your all time favourite movie.

The Scriptures of the Christian Church tell us that the birth of the baby in the manger at Bethlehem came at the end of one era, and the beginning of another. In Luke's Gospel, the Angel Gabriel visits first not Mary, nor Joseph, but one Zechariah, a priest of the temple of Yahweh, and his wife, Elizabeth, a descendant of Aaron. Aaron the brother of Moses and the first of the Priests of the...

Castlegar's own Holly Smee is stunned and delighted to have garnered the support of more than 10,000 people just days after launching a Facebook campaign in response to recent tragedy.

Smee, a 34-year-old mental health worker, said she got the idea on the same morning that a school shooting spree took the lives of 20 elementary-school children in Conneticut, while a mass stabbing in...

Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the house

there was plenty of stirring, but not one goddamned louse.

I had made extra sure we would all be nit-free,

It seemed like only yesterday Jeremy Grant was walking the halls of L.V. Rogers encouraging friends to take to the trails so he could film them using his parents VHS camera.

Grant obviously has now graduated to the big time after capturing Best Director as part of the Red Bull Media House and Freeride Entertainment’s Where the Trail Ends, film 13th annual X-Dance...
