Welcome to the Megaphone. This is your place to post the news that matters to you. If someone's getting married or getting born, this is the place to let your community know. If you want to thank someone for a good turn or lambaste the noisy, nosy, or woefully ignorant, do it here. Basically, anything you think your community need to know about: use the megaphone and make yourself heard.

Not only does Andrew Bennett keep us all entertained and informed of the goings-on in Rossland, he contributes to our community in a big way. One small example was his dedication to cancer prevention, shaving off his hair and raising over $500 to support Prevent Cancer Now.

Thanks so much, Andrew! You are a prince among men (albeit a somewhat hair-less one).
