 The  storyline is new to the Gold Fever Follies, but familiar to us all --  a love forbidden because of  prejudice and animosity between two factions -- in this case, two communities:  Rossland and  Trail.    Audience members will recognize many allusions to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, as well as some direct quotes, such as " No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I bite my thumb, sir."

A Nelson man believes “Lady Luck” was on his side during Monday’s thunderstorm that rocked the Heritage City.

Richard Nelson, at home alone at the time of thunderstorm Monday evening, was inside the family dwelling at the Rosemont Trailer Park when a huge tree crashed through the roof as a result of the Gale Force winds the storm packed.

“I was watching the storm from the living room window when I saw two trees (next to the trailer) bend at a 45 degree angle,” Nelson told The Nelson Daily.
