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.

I think it is a good idea to put literature in graphic novel and anime form because it will help young minds out learn about the classic that the previous generations read, like “Robinson Crusoe” and “Hamlet”, back in their times in high school and in college. When reading the graphic novel and watching the anime version adaptations of the classics, the young minds can see what the artist’s take...

There are many anime fans, or otakus, in the Kootenays and they might want to go to an anime convention in Vancouver, Calgary or Edmonton, which it will cost them time, gas (if they drive) and money. My goal is to have an anime convention in Rossland entitled Rosslanime (in Rossland) and it will coincide with a Rossland festival, like the Rossland Mountain Film Festival or Golden City Days...

Thank you to the very kind person who turned in my keys to the post office front counter today. I'd left them on the window ledge & discovered they were missing on my way home. I'd have been locked out in the snow otherwise! And I learned a lesson: get a spare cut for myself! Thank you so much, whoever you are!
