[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...

Dear editor,

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...

Dear editor,

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 have...

Dear editor,

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
so much.

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

The...

Dear editor,

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...

Dear editor,

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...

Dear editor,

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...

Dear Editor,

In response to your article entitled "French court convicts Scientology of organized fraud" on October 28, 2009. We are blessed to live in a country that embraces the multifaith nature of our rich Canadian society.

We pride ourselves on building a pluralistic world of peace, understanding and acceptance of...

Dear Minister Flaherty:
 
I write today on behalf of Mr. Cal Craik, of Okanagan Barrel Works, Ltd., Oliver, BC, to urgently request that you take immediate steps to alleviate the harm which is being done to his business as a result of the import tax reduction on finished barrels from Europe. Okanagan Barrel Works, Ltd is Canada’s only barrel manufacturer and this...
