How fortunate we are to have so much snow so early in the season. Rosslanders, being the avid out doors people that we are, were out in droves, cross-country skiing, touring, and snow shoeing.

On Friday  we headed up to Strawberry Pass, to the Rossland Range Recreation Site, for our first turns on Lepsoe and we were delighted to see a large new parking lot...

To The Editor:
 
Why should I care if the voting system changes in British Columbia ?
 
I feel I should care because our votes are one of the only ways we can influence important decisions that have to be made collectively.
 
I care because until we have a fair voting system all voices...

To The Editor:

It’s all about balance. 

Even with a vegetarian meal, there needs to be a balance of the essential nutrients.  If we look at Proportional Representation (PR) in the same light, there is an opportunity for the electorate to choose the desired balance.  If we think of the various political parties as one of the essential “food groups”, then...

To The Editor:

We should not only applaud the City of Victoria for their recent call for climate accountability, but our local municipalities should join the chorus.

For far too long fossil fuel corporations have used tax payer dollars through government subsidies and externalized pollution costs to make billions in profits. Its time they join us in...

To The Editor:

Accountability.

Local city councils in the Kootenays should follow the examples of  Victoria, Saanich and the District of the Highlands, who voted nearly unanimously to send a "Climate Accountability Letter" to 20 of the world's largest fossil fuel companies,...

We have been increasingly distressed by the many, many bags of dog feces neatly bagged and thrown on the mining school road and on out the trails and presumably all over Rossland.  The bears are hungry now and dog feces are rich in nutrients, and ugly as this photo is, people need to know that they are threatening the lives of bears who can die from ingesting plastic bags which can block their...

Dear Editor,

We live in one of the most beautiful areas in this region and I am in favor of a waterfront trail along the Columbia River! 

I don't feel however, it needs to encroach on private property!

All of the city waterfront trails I have experienced have existed on cit- owned land.

I am one of the waterfront property owners and I feel blessed at the tranquility...

To The Editor:

The CBC news article (Climate Change cost for BC) referenced studies that suggested Climate Change could cost Canada billions of dollars by 2020.  Much of this anticipated cost included infra-structure repair and dealing with food accessibility that has been compromised due to climate change in areas where we currently source food.  The...

Dear Readers:

I would like to take this opportunity to express my immeasurable gratitude to the people of Rossland for their tremendous support for me and the BC Greens.

Green Party supporters throughout the Kootenay West area should take pride in their voices, and votes, being heard louder than ever before! I am so proud of British Columbians for electing North America's first...

Dear Rosslanders:

We certainly appreciate citizens coming forward with their concerns and we are happy to provide information and clarification on the points that have been raised. Residents are always welcome to contact our Chief Financial Officer who is a Chartered Public Accountant (CPA)...
