Story pole raised in traditional way at Christina Living Arts Centre

Every community has a story. For Christina Lake the story dates back to the times before even the First Nations story began, back to the time that only exists in the legends of the S’nixit people who lived in the area.

REVIEW: Rossland gets shredded

Ah yes, the good old banjo: that brilliant half guitar-half drum instrument.

Is the grass really greener?

With all the grad stuff going on right now, I often get nostalgic at this time of year for good old 1992, the year of my own grad. Like a lot of my classmates, I could not wait to blow this joint called Rossland so I could munch on the greener, tastier grasses of places like Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria and other cities that...

Rosslanders will soon regain the right to swim--affordably and year round--right here in the Golden City. The recent rejection of Rossland’s latest attempt to restart negotiations around a new recreation cost sharing agreement by the City of Trail seems to have prompted a drastic rethink on the part of council. As reported ...
