Welcome to the Megaphone. This is your place to post the news that matters to you. If someone's getting married or getting born, this is the place to let your community know. If you want to thank someone for a good turn or lambaste the noisy, nosy, or woefully ignorant, do it here. Basically, anything you think your community need to know about: use the megaphone and make yourself heard. Now blast away...

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!

Author Angie Abdou comes to the Kootenays

Author Angie Abdou comes to the Kootenays

It’s been quite a ride for Fernie author Angie Abdou: her first novel, The Bone Cage, was a CBC Canada Reads book, and the next, The Canterbury Trail, was a finalist for Banff Mountain Book of the Year.

She’s been cover girl on such literary publications as Quill & Quire and BC Bookworld.

Abdou will read from her work in at Nelson Public Library on Friday, September 21 at 7:30 pm.

An instructor at College of the Rockies with a PhD in creative writing, Abdou is the author of three notable works of fiction.

What is the most innovative business in the Kootenays?

Shout out to Andrew Bennett!

Not only does Andrew Bennett keep us all entertained and informed of the goings-on in Rossland, he contributes to our community in a big way. One small example was his dedication to cancer prevention, shaving off his hair and raising over $500 to support Prevent Cancer Now.

Thanks so much, Andrew! You are a prince among men (albeit a somewhat hair-less one).
