Washtub Bass Instructional Video

Rossland resident, Michael Gifford, has a new handle. Call him "Gut Bucket Giff". He recently released his two-part YouTube instructional video, "Compleat Washtub Bass".

When biologist Alexandra Morton discovers BC’s wild salmon are testing positive for dangerous European salmon viruses associated with salmon farming worldwide, a chain of events is set off by government to suppress the findings. Tracking viruses, Morton moves from courtrooms, into British Columbia’s most remote rivers, Vancouver grocery stores and sushi restaurants.

Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez IV Will Not End: Just Here To Get The Show

Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez have talked a big game over the past few months. Each one has insisted that, because of a mutual distrust for judges and how bouts are scored, they will aim to knock the other out this Saturday.

It’s not going to happen.

Ronald Wright, a bore and not inspiring. Underwhelmed by his address.

Wright was awful. The man is dull, his inability to speak informally is painful.

What did he offer us for solutions? "Political will."

Did he have an opinion why our wills have not brought an end to our many problems, human and natural. No. Did he say why 2008 had not changed anything in capitalism? No. Why do the powerful have power over us? Why can Harper lead us into more military spendiing and degradation of our envirnoment etc etc ?

Overall, I failed to see any light in this man, when we need it so badly.

Washington State Wolf Slaughter

It was sad to hear that Washington State allowed and participated in the unnecessary slaugthering of healthy wolves.     They perform a vital function in the wildlife cycle and for the State officials to be a part of the slaughter...especially of the alpha pack pair...is abhorant.   Clearly the State has demonstrated its' priority is not in the protection of wildlife but in the ranchers back pocket!

Cui Bono Mayor Dooley?

Bemused by the empassioned stand of Nelson's Mayor Dooley on a City Council Meeting proposal to Stop the Violence, ie decriminalize and tightly regulate Marijuana as the only sensible way to reduce its harms in Society.  One cannot but wonder "cui bono": who stands to gain by his position?  The Mayor seems certain of its popular appeal to the voters; now isn't that a bit odd for the small cool Arts Town much sought for its urbane tolerance of public pot and good times?  Could it be the economy-first vote, then?  How many people in his town are employed

MINISTRY OF TRUTH: Why do we bother planning when planning apparently means nothing?

Lately, when I’m shuffling through the aisles in Ferraro Foods I’m often stopped by some enquiring Rosslander or another who wants to know what the ‘deal’ is with the sidewalks on Columbia Avenue.
