Letters to the Editor
[Editor's note: The following is a letter sent last week to School District 20 by Rossland Mayor Greg Granstrom. The mayor read part of this letter aloud at Thursday's meeting at RSS]
Rossland City Council thanks the School Board for their efforts in dealing with the school situation in such a challenging environment and appreciates your involvement of the community through a...
Regarding submissions to the school board during Phase 2 - Planning for the Furure, people should not worry too much about a "unified" PAC response. The root of the issue, in my opinion, is the dependancy model that we continue to find ourselves in.
I believe that individual rural communities should be making decisions regarding education of our children and I have...
There has been a lot of passion and concern expressed regarding the possible cuts in our local schools. Meetings in the district have been well attended and numerous people are also expressing their thoughts in writing to the School District. Meanwhile the School District Trustees and board staff have faced the tough questions and concerns with professionalism.
I would like to say how wonderfull it is to live in a city where you can walk up the street and ski and walk on a groomed trail! I thank the city for being progressive by funding the grooming of Centennial trail, so that folks can walk to a trail that they ski, snowshoe or walk on, instead of having to get in their car and drive somewhere to be active.
It makes getting...
I am taking the CCSW (Classroom and Community Support Worker) program at
Selkirk College. I am at the end of the fall semester and it was a wild and
crazy time, so much coming at you so fast, but have truly enjoyed and learned
I’ve always wondered if I was being politically correct in my naming words
that went with those that I will...
If a plunge in the river is not your bag
If you’re finding your muscle tone starting to sag
If your head is still aching from the evening before
If your back feels tired and your legs are sore
If you ate too much and your belly is groaning
If you want to be happy and are fed up with moaning
Then try something different that gets your blood racing
I would like to commend the Telegraph's discussion with Nelson and Creston on their recreation infrastructure improvements and resultant tax increases. These were very timely considering Rosslands problem with our arena roof, i.e. 'should council have commenced studies on whether to take up the grant of $400K to repair the arena roof?'
My thoughts on...
The time has come to legalize marijuana, tax it, and create a few hundred thousand jobs. Marc Emery is currently waiting to see if we will let the US extradite him, to face a possible life sentence for selling seeds on the internet.
44% of Canadians have admitted to smoking weed, leading to the obvious conclusion that millions of Canadians currently possess marijuana...
All the fresh, new snow has certainly got everyone in the community excited about going skiing or riding this season. And that’s a good thing. We like to see people playing in the snow! As a seasonal reminder, please take great care if you plan on touring or hiking either Red or Granite Mountains prior to our official opening day.
There are many early season...
Last week the three male judges of the BC Appeal Court ruled that they agreed
with the rules of the International Olympic Committee and the female ski jumpers were banned in partaking in the 2010 Games.
In other words, the I.O.C. regulations overrule the human rights laws that are supposed to protect the citizens of this weak-kneed country.
One can only...
