This Christmas, Rossland gives the gift of freedom to six Burmese refugees

The Mi family: grandmother Mya, daughter Layi Pon, and mother May.

 Two families of Mon refugees from Burma will soon move to Rossland thanks to the efforts of the West Kootenay Friends of Refugees (WKFR), a community group formed this summer by Rossland residents. Now WKFR will focus on raising funds to support the families for one year after they arrive in 2013.

An independent snow film made in the Kootenays

An independent snow film made in the Kootenays

Rest in Powder is an independent snow film about a group of friends from the Kootenays.

In the film we are skiing and snowboarding in our favorite zones, in the mountains, in powder.

The film is a visual narrative of our snow experiences. It draws influence from our favorite aspects of rock star and soulful sports films while emphasizing atmospheric and aesthetic detail.

The film is entirely independent in that it is intentionally advertiser and distributor free.

Daniel Huscroft continues to choose experience over security

Daniel Huscroft continues to choose experience over security

Daniel Huscroft

@ The Royal, Saturday, Dec. 3, 10 p.m.

Behind the unpolished exterior of Daniel Huscroft’s bushy beard and dusty boots lies a masterful musician who cut his teeth on a piano, and picked up his first violin when he was five.

He was schooled in Vivaldi concertos and old time fiddle; by 12 years old he had travelled the continent, competing nationally and performing alongside his musician father and sisters in the ‘Huscroft Family Band.’
