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...

Literature and classic movies in anime/graphic novel form

See video
I think it is a good idea to put literature in graphic novel and anime form because it will help young minds out learn about the classic that the previous generations read, like “Robinson Crusoe” and “Hamlet”, back in their times in high school and in college. When reading the graphic novel and watching the anime version adaptations of the classics, the young minds can see what the artist’s take on the original version like.

Economy Boosted with an Anime Convention

There are many anime fans, or otakus, in the Kootenays and they might want to go to an anime convention in Vancouver, Calgary or Edmonton, which it will cost them time, gas (if they drive) and money. My goal is to have an anime convention in Rossland entitled Rosslanime (in Rossland) and it will coincide with a Rossland festival, like the Rossland Mountain Film Festival or Golden City Days respectively. All the proceeds after the convention will be split between Rossland Radio Cooperative & the Canadian Cancer Society.
