Fright Night Returns

What is your deepest darkest fear? Heights? Speaking in public? Bah! Neither are that deep or that dark. Think of things that go bump in the night, lurk in closets or slither under beds. Dolls coming alive, cemeteries and medieval times: now you’re getting close to the inspiration behind Rossland Secondary School’s production of Fright Night.

Open from 5:00 to 9:00 pm Wednesday Oct 29th in the RSS Auditorium, Fright Night, organized by RSS’ drama students, makes its return after a one year absence.

Joe Hill Coffee House Hits Its Stride

Sunday night was the very well-attended second edition of the newly-resurrected Joe Hill Coffee House. While some who attended last time felt that the sets were a little too long, Sunday night’s offering struck the right balance and mostly kept it.

Telegraph Profile: Accidental Environmentalist Runs for Council

This week's all-candidates' meeting was a good introduction to the great majority of the candidates in this year's Rossland civic elections. One candidate, however, was not present at the meeting.

Marilyn Bowering at the Rouge

It rained a lot on Thursday, but there was a beautiful sunset as night fell, albeit on the wrong side of the horizon. 'Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning,' a colleague puzzled, 'but red sky in the east....?' I'll assume the unusual sky was a good portent, announcing, as it did, the arrival of Marilyn Bowering in town despite the usual horrors of flying into Castlegar on anything other than a sunny August afternoon.

Elderberry Whining

It was raining yesterday when I went out picking elderberries. I’d had it in my brain all summer that, come fall, I was going to make myself a batch of elderberry wine. Why? I’m not sure, but I have my theories.
