There’s a new online source for people seeking easy-to-understand information on climate change specific to communities throughout the Columbia Basin and Boundary regions. The Columbia Basin Climate Source website - basinclimatesource.ca - was initiated by Columbia Basin Trust and developed by Selkirk College’s Applied Research and Innovation Centre.
A fixture of our community, especially when it comes to the outdoors, Bob has been sharing his love and passion with our community for the past 19 years, ever since he arrived in the Elk Valley. So, just how did it all begin?
My first attempt at chainsaw carving did not turn out like I thought it would. It was absolutely terrible. It was a human face and it was really bad. I did however know where my mistakes were.
I was in a funk. An I’m-almost-32-anddon’t- know-what-I’m-doing-with-mylife kind of funk. Lacking fulfillment and feeling misdirected, I decided to quit my job.
Walk, bike, hike, run or however you enjoy the front or backcountry, trails are critical for recreation. Around the Basin, 25 projects will be adding to or improving the region’s trails, with nearly $400,000 from Columbia Basin Trust’s Trail Enhancement Grants.
September will be a very practical month and getting organised after summer is the focus.
The sunny weather might linger well into September but summer fun changes with the start of the school calendar. It is a perfect time to hit the pause button and find time to complete an art project.
Birth is the ultimate beginning. Each new parent patiently waits nine months to meet their little one and begin the big adventure. With this beginning comes one of the purest forms of joy but also restless nights and extreme fatigue.
September marks the creeping of crisp mornings and blissfully warm afternoons, the turning of trees and fragrant smell of decaying leaves are a few of my favourite characteristics of autumn. These elements are nostalgic.
No one is sure how it started. A bet? A dispute over a woman? Two guys trying to prove who’s the top dog? Maybe it was a case of road rage. Instead of taking it outside, into the alley behind the bar, they took it to the county fairgrounds.
South Country firefighters remain on the scene of an overnight fire on a rural property on Rosicky Road near Jaffray and are now expecting it could be several days before the fire is fully extinguished.
