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.

 Of course the cross should be placed in a public location such as Pioneer Park. Although the hospital was run by the Catholic nuns, it was a health care facility for the entire community and should be remembered and respected as such. This was a first class hospital and was open to all who needed health care regardless of religion. It served the entire population of Rossland and was a huge...

 If you would like to show support for Rossland re-joining the Regional Recreation function or at least going back to the negotiating table, please join our facebook group. This may help to determine how many people are really interested in regional recreation. I am tired of us not working with the other communities and of paying $10 for a swim. Interested? Join now!

 The Central Kootenay Invasive Plant Committee (CKIPC) would like to thank the Rossland Rotary Club and the Rossland Interact Club for their hard work pulling Common teasel and Hound’s tongue in and around Rossland on July 19th, 2010. Over 30 people came out to pull these two invasive plant species, and their combined efforts allowed us to treat approximately 1 hectare of sensitive reptilian...

Driving back from Castelgar today you could see the plume of smoke coming up in the distance somewhere behind Rossland. Here's a shot from the Washington State  fire service showing the currently active fires and smoke plumes trailing up into BC and towards Rossland. I've highlighted Rossland on the map.

I thought this would be useful information for any members of the Rossland market looking to expand their audience. Ideally, we should have a Kootenay circuit of markets that don't occur on the same days...that way the sellers can make a better living and the shoppers  can have a better selection!

I just HAVE to vent about the Emcon lot, since I live across the street from it. Let me preface this rant by saying 1) yes, I am aware that the highway resurfacing project is necessary and I am not saying we don't need it and 2) I realize that - SO FAR - no noise bylaws are being violated, YET, but... MAN, it's fracking loud and fracking annoying! They may start at 7am, which is within the...

I get a kick out of this song. They lyrics are deep, too: 'giant of commerce and industry'. They sure managed to cram a lot of lyrics into it! Good fun, though...

Maybe it's the prolonged stretch of 30 degree weather that's got me hallucinating again but it seems the hotter it gets the more and more thoughts of winter creep into my mind.

I came across this great slide show of classic style ski photos by Dave Heath and the jones for snow got even worse. If you need a fix, here's Heath's slide show of photos from this past spring's The Gathering...

I'm REALLY enjoying the Farmer's Market downtown on Queen St. on Thursday afternoons. Bought some greens there last week from (sheesh, I hope I have remembered her name correctly!) Rachel, who is gardening on a borrowed plot in Happy Valley--they were SUBLIME. The bunch of carrots and Swiss chard I got today were equally tasty and check out the Mango Chutney from another booth. I love these...
