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...

How are we still killing for fun?

Can someone explain to me how the act of stalking and murdering woodland creatures for the sheer joy and excitement of mounting their carcass on a wall, or splaying it across the floor, is still acceptable? What frightens me is the utter lack of empathy and compassion required to lower a gun at a living being, one absolutely as capable of feeling pain and fear, and with the equal desire to live, as any man, woman or child, and pull the trigger.

Passions collide in a new stand up paddle board website

Passions collide in a new stand up paddle board website

When Castlegar-based graphic designer Kathy Verigin discovered a new passion, it wasn’t enough to just pursue it; she had to share it. The result is a marriage of two passions—design and sport—in an easy-to-navigate, informative website all about stand up paddle boarding.

Verigin grew up in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, where water sports were part of childhood. She discovered stand up paddle boarding in Hawaii, when she rented a board and was instantly hooked.

Rossland Radio on hiatus

Due to lack of local support, ROssland Radio is on hiatus. ROssland Radio did not do anything wrong to the community, but give a voice to people who want to play their favorite music. All it needed was more volunteers to help with the events and do show.
