Hello Rosslanders,


Last night at the school board meeting, the school district 20 staff presented the next stage of Planning for the Future — a facilities report for 2010-2015 (attached).

Dear editor,

This summer, the Canadian Cancer Society wants to remind the community to practice sun safety while enjoying the outdoors. Natural sunlight is important for good health.  However, too much exposure to the sun’s rays can cause skin cancer and eye problems. Being safe in the sun can go a long way toward protecting you and your family.

Sun burns and sun damage build up...

Dear editor,

Rossland Council has given developers another break which will ultimately be at the expense of taxpayers. At a recent meeting, Council decided not to consider a revised Development Cost Charge (DCC) bylaw until 2011. The ostensible reason given for the delay was the “infrastructure assessment” that is to be undertaken this year.

The “infrastructure assessment”...

Dear editor,

Rossland taxpayers should be justifiably upset to learn that Council has deferred any action on Development Cost Charges (DCCs) until 2011. They should not be surprised that the Mayor supports this, since he was a councilor, and subsequently Mayor, of the Council that set Development Cost Charges (DCCs) at a ridiculously low amount in 2004, to the benefit of developers....

Dear editor,

My name is Lesley Tarasoff and I grew up in the Slocan Valley, BC but now I live in Toronto, ON. This weekend, as you are aware, the G8 and G20 summits took place in Huntsville and Toronto. I am sure you saw the mainstream media's interpretation of the summits and what was happening on the streets. However, a lot was not reported and needs to be made public.

The rights...

Dear editor,

Death is not an option.  It is an experience each of us will face one day.  How we, or our loved ones, are cared for during that experience has taken a significant turn for the worse as local administrators once again reduce service levels while trying to convince us that adequate care is still available. Nurses and physicians in both hospital and home care settings will...

Dear editor,

There is just one month left in the “Grounds for Haiti” collective fundraising initiative and there are some great things happening in the month of June. Our small group behind the “Grounds for Haiti” collective fundraising initiative are intent on keeping the focus on long-term efforts on rebuilding Haiti in the public eye for awhile longer.

We are able to do this...

Note: This is an open letter to Dr. Robert Halpenny, CEO of the Interior Health Authority from Keith Simmonds of the United Church.

Dear Dr. Halpenny,

I was dismayed to learn that the IHA has decided to cut the Social Work positions that offer direct support and care to people and families whose lives are already consumed by end of life issues.

I cannot...
