Columbia tender trepidation: Checkout stand democracy or unelected autocracy?

What’s going on (or not going on) at City Hall about the tenders for the Columbia Avenue infrastructure project?  Tenders were opened on April 3 and there hasn’t been a peep about what the bids were. 

Resurrection?

Resurrection?

One of the people I grew up with re-connected with me on Facebook recently. He has the odd issue with religion. Responding to an article about a Good Friday procession, he wondered what 'foolery' might come next. I commented about singing, dancing and celebrating on the mountain side in Rossland on Easter morning. He wrote back about the delusion of the resurrection.

ROSSLAND REAL FOOD: Big bees, little bees, let’s help the bees…
Entomologist Lynn Westcott is coming back to Rossland for another round of talks and demonstrations about native bees. On April 12,  she’ll lead a workshop on the biology, ecology and habitat needs of native bees.  Part of this workshop  will be similar to what Lynn covered in last year’s workshop, in that she will describe the biology and ecology of locally occurring native bees, and discuss the important roles they play in natural, urban and agricultural areas.

Columbia Avenue tender musings: Is parallel parking an inevitability?

The date for receipt of tenders for the Columbia Avenue infrastructure project has been delayed - again.  So has council’s often-requested discussion about what to do about the project - particularly the issue of parallel vs. angle parking.

ASTHMA: Find the cause and treat the symptoms

ASTHMA: Find the cause and treat the symptoms

Asthma is an increased response of the airways to certain stimuli that are irritants/allergies or sensitivities to that person. This causes broncho-constriction, which means narrowing of the breathing passageways, which can lead to shortness of breath, wheezing or a chronic cough and in some cases can be life-threatening. At this time of year, I see many people that are starting to experience reactions to the mould from the melting snow and the dust in the streets and at home, especially if there is a wood stove.

Rosslanders Podium at Neil Edgeworth Banked Slalom at Big White on weekend

My experience with the Neil Edgeworth banked slalom goes back a few years now.  The first time I went I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  I was told by my husband that he was off to compete in this race and I was not only coming with but competing as well.  Hold on just a minute I think was my response, why am I competing?  So he explained and I went, hesitantly.

Hundreds rally against Endbridge Oil

Hundreds rally against Endbridge Oil

On a soggy Monday afternoon, hundreds of people rallied against the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline from the tar sands in Alberta to Kitimat, British Columbia. The protest was lead by the Heiltsuk people, whom proudly describe themselves as the care takers of their territorial lands and waters, in the Great Bear Rainforest on BC’s Central Coast.  

The rally began modestly at the Bear Initiative Office on Granville, swelled at the Vancouver Art Gallery, then hit the streets for a march to the Enbridge office on Burrard. 

Good Friday?

Good Friday?

Having just read Diana Butler Bass' new book Christianity After Religion--a thoughtful and thought-provoking read--and being in the midst of planning for Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday services, I am left to ponder what the post-Christian generation might think about Good Friday.

In the book we learn that many people in our age are cross border shopping in faith traditions, taking what they need to supplement their personal experiences of the Divine.

Powder, Trees and Airbags

See video

Friday night the snow was falling and my biggest concern was how to fit everything I wanted to do in on Saturday as I had to work Sunday and Monday and Tuesday…... not feeling 100% Saturday started slow with a sleep in after helping make breakfast for our guests.  Always something to do at the lodge so while Ian was sleeping I started making beds and then we headed out for some mountain time.  We had missed the Cliff Dive registration so I figured it was time to go see what the snow was like up top before hitting the park and the Airbag.
