Olympic letter to Rossland 3

in

 Hey Rossland,

I hope that your Christmas holidays all went extraordinarily well!  I ate too much turkey of course… and continue to.  As the family guests are heading out of town, I thought I should take a spare moment to catch up with you.  In a week I will be heading to Europe for the first part of the World Cup Tour; so it may be a while before I have the chance to write again.

Last week’s article and discussion around the Rossland arena raised a number of questions over the project. However, the overwhelming sentiment in the story was that the arena is indeed important to Rosslanders and that something--be it renovations or replacement--should be done to maintain it. Now that Rossland council has turned down a $400,000 grant to replace the roof of the arena, The Telegraph has decided to keep the discussion going over what to do about our arena.

 Over the past several years, the city of Nelson has gone through an extensive process to get a new arena facility built. Significantly smaller than Creston's development, the 13 million dollar project involved the adding of a new arena to an existing aquatc center whereas in Creston it was the addition of an aquatic centre to an existing arena. This week The Rossland Telegraph's Andrew Zwicker caught up with Nelson Mayor John Dooley to discuss how Nelson got their project completed and what advice they may have to help Rossland with its arena.

Kimberly Joines: letter to Rossland 2

Hey Rossland,

It’s been a while since I’ve written, so I thought that I’d check in.  After nearly 2.5 months off to heal a shoulder injury, I am finally cleared to get back out and ski.  I was about half way to crazy, and now I’m probably about half way to fully healed.  Turns out I will be needing surgery, but it’s something I am able to put off until after the games.  Nothing like adding a little bit of excitement into an otherwise dull Olympic year!  (And, in case you missed it, that WAS meant to be sarcastic.)

Is your body acidic, alkaline or both?

Is your body acidic, alkaline or both?

Recently, there have been articles in health magazines in regards to acid-base balancing and what that entails. It is based on the essential metabolic processes in the body. These processes take place at the smallest cellular level. Energy is acquired in humans by the breakdown or oxidation of large carbohydrates into smaller compounds from which the cell draws nutrients for it’s activities.

Through this process, carbonic acid is produced, which may be dangerous for the cells when produced in too great a quantity. When this occurs, it makes the system “acidic”.
