If anyone out there has a case of the post holiday or winter blues, an antidote is in the works for you! The last weekend of January, the 28th to 30th, marks the 114th year of Rossland’s annual winter bash, the Winter Carnival, and this year promises to be so chock-a-block with action even the most die-hard of hibernators will want to get out and participate in the fun.

Before I even get into this column I should start by saying a hearty thank you to the seniors in my life. Be it grandparents, friends or casual acquaintances around town, they have been nothing but good to me and I wholeheartedly appreciate the friendliness they’ve offered, knowledge passed down, veritable history lessons over beers and their contribution to society. That said, however,...

Here in the lifestyle bubble that is Rossland, one can often feel like they're part of some sort of large scale reality show full of wacky characters. The Golden City sports a culture that is truly one of a kind.

From right here at Red Mountain and all the way across the pond to Adelboden Switzerland, it’s been a big week for Rossland skiers. At the same time that former Red Mountain Racer Sasha Zaistoff was competing in his first ever World Cup slalom in Switzerland, local world cup hopefuls were tearing up the slopes at Red and posting dominant performances.

Similar to the way the Team Canada Juniors turned gold into silver at the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships last week in Buffalo, NY, the Kootenay Ice let one slip away.

Thompson Blazers played the role of Team Russia, scoring five third-period goals en route to a 7-4 victory over Kootenay in B.C. Major Midget Hockey League action...

With the sad announcement this week that The Nelson Express is closing its doors after 22 years of operation, several things about the future of media in the West Kootenay have become much clearer.

First, print continues to become less and less viable economically. Each of the five largest towns in our region now has only one print paper, all of them owned by Black Press, a...

In my heart pennies are tradition, a kind of symbolism of Canada.  The maple leaf on the front waves at you as strong picture of our great country.  But the use of them has become so slack that it seems pointless to keep them.  Tradition or not something that is wasteful to both our economy and the environment.  It isn’t as though the idea of being rid of the cooper coin is new, in Australia...
