The Small Mysteries of Transformation for Mind and Politics (Part One of Two)

A meditation on pasts, personal and historical:  Part I

This is the longest column (8,500 words!) I have ever offered. The topic warrants it, I believe. I like to think my preoccupations are not peculiar to me and there is something in this piece that provokes their own reflections in my readers.

Nuggets of History: A Walking Tour

Left to right:  Museum Director Joelle Hodgins, Museum President Libby Martin, Tourism Rossland's Executive Director Deanne Steven, and Stewart Spooner of the Kootenay Columbia Trails  Society.

Take a stroll along the Centennial Trail and Moe's Loop, and watch for new plaques posted along the way -- there are 16 altogether, with interesting nuggets of information (and the odd bit of entertaining misinformation, but you'll be able to tell the differece)  about Rossland's history.   One  favorite refers to the Rossland Miners Union being responsible for limiting the workday to eight hours, and doing away with "the 8-day workweek."

Walkers can view all the plaques in a 3-kilometer hike.
