I have not mentioned much about animal proteins, such as red meat (pork and beef) and dairy.  These are inflammatory to the body and should be used only in small portions.  If you have any inflammation in the body, such as rheumatoid arthritis, joint or muscle pain, bursitis, tendonitis, colitis or any other “itis” (which means inflammation) these should be minimal. 

If you have none of...

There is a movement afoot, a less than secretive fraternal order of men donating the combined powers of their upper lips to a cause. Self-sacrificing, self-effacing, they are putting their best faces forward and adorning the fleshy canvas below their septum with a mo’, a moustache, for one month. Solidarity in the furry face of adversity, these men sport ribbon-thin whiskerings and chop-heavy...

If you’ve ever wanted to wander in the woods or stroll along Rossland’s premier stream in the past you may well have been up Trail Creek without a paddle...er, trail. Since the completion of the tentatively-named Trail Creek Trail residents and dogs alike from the surrounding neighbourhoods have been enjoying the scenic wilderness stroll.

Here’s a lucky coincidence for you. Over the last few months, we here at the Telegraph have been talking with RSS English teacher Marilyn Nelson about working with the school on an online newspaper.

Out of the underwhelming news story of the week file, RCMP recently presented Rossland City Council with crime statistics in our safe little mountain town for the first half of the year.

Last Monday I had the opportunity to go somewhere I’d never been before: a City council meeting. I was assigned a story about the Museum Select Committee and was encouraged to attend the meeting by my editor so I could see the Committee’s presentation.  Usually, I curl on Monday nights, but I managed to find a spare and off I went.  I decided to go early to get a good seat because I knew there...
