Although the deer count done by the Grand Forks deer committee on Tuesday morning showed less deer population than last year’s fall count, the ratio of fawns to does indicates the herd is on the rise. Brian Harris, wildlife biologist with the Ministry of Environment, said that in natural conditions there would be 25 – 30 fawns per 100 does, this year’s numbers are averaging 70 fawns to 91...

The RCMP investigation into local ATM thefts (incluing one in Castlegar, see Local banks targeted) has a new twist, as a fourth offence has now been committed, and police are releasing descriptions of suspects. 

The fourth robbery took place Sept. 12 at about 4:30 a.m. at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union at the Waneta Mall in Trail....

This week marks the Telegraph’s one hundredth (!) weekly edition with me as editor and I’m both relieved and somewhat saddened that it’s going to be my last. I’m saddened because what Andrew, David, and I have worked so hard to build is now a thriving newspaper that engages the community while not being afraid to challenge it when necessary – exactly what a newspaper, in other words, is...

Four area neighbours of the redevelopment project at the corner of 5th Avenue and St. Paul spoke out against the project at this past Monday’s regular council meeting. Ultimately council sympathized with the neighbours and denied the motion which would have created a new zoning bylaw allowing the developer to construct a duplex on the lot in question.

 

Over the past...

The race to secure an in-town home base for Rossland Search and Rescue (RSAR) took a small step forward this week.

 
The RSAR, founded in 1999 and with 55 current members, does not officially have a home. Currently, they are storing their unique-in-the-region mobile command centre in a covered shed In the City’s works yard on Third Avenue.

Plans, plans, plans. Rossland has been producing plans, planning documents and planning committees at a rapid and productive pace over the past half decade or more. Indeed, through the Visions to Actions process, the Official Community Plan, the Strategic Sustainability planning process, and the Climate Change action committee (along with several other planning exercises) several high...

I extend my finger out the open window of my compatriot’s van. Leaning across from the right-hand driver’s side seat (it’s an import), he slows the 4x4 down and squints at the target I have acquired. He shakes his head.

 
“Pine.”
 
We continue. The scene has replayed itself a good half dozen times since we branched off the highway onto Neptune, and...

Out There is a column for the Telegraph that focuses on adventures outside of the Mountain Kingdom [editor's note: is there anything beyond Wedding Cake corner and the Nancy Green Junction? We've all heard the rumours, but I thought they were just rural myths...] Without sounding too Star Trek-like, our mission is to seek out new life and boldly go where probably lots of people have...

Another chapter in the revitalization of the Bank of Montreal building began this past weekend.

 
Two years ago, Pat Hinds was the CFO of a multi-million dollar company in Vancouver.  An ultra-marathoner with 17 full marathons and even a “700 miler” under his belt, Pat and his wife, Karen, who loves to ski, and their young son began to seek a new place to...

I'm a pretty poor sports reporter--okay, I'm not a sports reporter at all--and I have to confess right off the bat that I've already forgotten the score of Sunday night's inaugural Roller Derby match-up between Rossland's Gnarlie's Angels and Salmo's Babes of Brutality (205-187?? I'm sorry, but I was too busy cheering to take notes!), but, let me tell you, although Rossland lost, the event was...
