a man' personal hell has some light

Everyone knew about a Trail resident that got ran over by a vehicle back in May. He had successful surgery to his left hip and now has a metal plate bolted on his hip to keep the ball socket in place and had a broken leg. Unlike Carol Enns, this person did not have aid by the community and all he got is a few people behind him for moral support. Also, he stayed in the hosptial for a little over a month, from May 28th to July 4th, and spent the entire summer rehabbing at home because of this.

Thank you to the citizens of Rossland

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is leading the charge in the fight again all cancers – of which there are more than 200 different types.  Every three minutes, another Canadian is faced with a cancer battle.  It’s likely the disease has affected almost everyone, be it a personal diagnosis or that of a loved one.  With the support of our volunteers, donors and community partners we are funding the most promising cancer research, offering vital support to those living with cancer, educating Canadians about early detection and advocating for healthy public policies.

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.
