Highway Maintenance - Winter is coming!!!

I have previously written about the state of our roads and highways, especially after my family was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident in January last year.  Luckily, they walked away with minor injuries but the effects psychologically have lasted much longer.

 

That accident could have resulted in the death of my entire family. It has changed how I view life and as a result, I am conscious of how precious life is, how important my family is and that there are no guarantees.

Thieves in town...

Thieves in town...

Just a reminder, there are thieves among us here in the Golden City; Last night my van was entered (I don't say "broken into" because I haven't been in the habit of locking it up) and several items were stolen from the front console.

The only item of any real value was an industrial Petzl headlamp that I use at work; see attached photo. These headlamps are not normally sold in ski shops, rather, they are available only through safety supply stores. If your child/crackhead renter/kleptomaniac grandparent has a brand new one of these, ask some questions.

RSS parents! Lunch volunteers needed!

Hey RSS parents! The food store really, really needs volunteers for this school year. If you can volunteer for 1.5 hours a week, or even every second week, at lunchtime (i.e. every Tuesday, or every second Thursday) please email heximer@telus.net. It's a great way to stay involved with the school and get to know the kids better!
