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...

If it is in the Blue Box

Every two weeks, we put out our blue boxes full of recyclable swag to be picked up and be recycled. There are a few of you, like me, who still find some of the swag that the RDKB left behind in our blue box that they deem "not recycleable." It doesn't matter if it is a plastic DVD container or a cardboard box for a Super Soaker; if it has the symbol for being recycled, It should be picked up for recycling and be remade for a new book or a new reusable travel coffee mug.

Rossland's Anime Convention Society needs help!

There is only one person, me, who is doing all the work for doing an anime convention in Rossland and no one is lending a hand to help me out. If people helped me out making this anime convention in Rossland called Rosslanime, we can get tourist dollars.

Great place for Auto Servicing!

I think it is important to recognize local business excellence. We recently used DynaPro Automotive in Rossland to service our vehicle. We are blown away by the great service! Jeremy definitely exceeded our expectations with his level of organization, care and professionalism. Love the complimentary Visual Vehicle Inspection Report! We will be using them for all our future auto servicing! Troy Kusy

Bear Aware seeking sponsors to clean up Columbia Ave

Remember the sidewalk bins that facilitated so much mess downtown last summer? The Bear Smart committee is recruiting sponsors for a solar powered trash compactor garbage bin or a returnable bin for a 3 month summer trial on Columbia Ave. A successful trial period provides our city an option to budget for purchase of a year round solution to garbage and returnable’s after the Columbia Ave renovation project. Success will be measured by the inability of wildlife to access the garbage and by the lack of garbage on the street.
