I am writing on behalf of the Consulting Foresters of BC, who have members who live and work in the Kootenay Region, to express unease that the Duhamel Watershed Alliance are learning how to take nonviolent

As forest...

Last Friday’s Nelson Star carried an article featuring Area F director Ron Mickel expressing his concern regarding the risks to residents (homeowners, businesses, and schools) on the fan of Duhamel Creek associated with logging activities currently underway in the watershed.

Mr. Mickel cites the recent occurrence of...

Doesn’t it just cream your corn when you witness a situation that you have no control over?  One knows there is a problem and it needs to be solved however, helplessness seems to control the moment.  Am I the only person with skull cramps caused by incomprehension of our health system?
 
While waiting to see a doctor at a...

Dear Friends and Family.

How can our family possibly express our appreciation for the generosity, love and support we have received over the past nine weeks from the community of Nelson. 

After receiving the video link to Raising the Curtain, Maia and I were overwhelmed with the amount of energy, work and talent that went...

Mr. Harper:

I write about your directing our military to revert to the use of British military rank insignias and designations after 45 years of a home-grown Canadian system. I also note that you previously had directed our services to revert to 'Royal' services in name, indicating service under the Queen of England.

My wife and I spent 16 years out of country and...

Dear Editor,

It is my pleasure to write a letter supporting the Red Mountain Academy.  I feel confident that an academic partnership between the Academy and Self Design High (SDH) will provide a favorable outcome for all involved; students, athletes and parents.  It will be a “win win” situation for all.

Online schooling has demonstrated success...

Open letter to Premier Christy Clark:
 
Dear Premier Christy Clark.

Your ambition to pay off BC’s debt, and not burden the next generation with it, is praiseworthy.

But, have you really thought about the big picture?

Money and debt is a man-made creation and is not real. Natural gas...

Dear editor,

It has recently been stated in a local news publication that “Rossland held the notorious tag as the fattest energy town in BC last year”. This deserves comment and correction.

Where on Earth does this myth originate? If this originates from the Energy Diet folks, they should do their homework before making such statements. A draft Community...

Dear editor,
 
Regardless of any particular election result, federal, provincial or municipal, certain truths remain self-evident. In the case of our two senior levels of government, excessive party discipline is slowly killing our democracy. In the May 14th BC provincial election barely 52 per cent of registered voters bothered to cast a ballot, down three per...
