By now you or someone or everyone you know has watched The Social Dilemma. If you haven’t you should. It’s eye-opening. The purpose of the documentary is to educate you about how social media is affecting your life in profound and often undesirable ways.

Alexander Hamilton was born in the British West Indies in the 1750s. His father was James Hamilton, a Scottish trader. His mother was Rachel Fawcett Lavine, the daughter of a French Huguenot physician, and wife of John Michael Lavine, a merchant who had settled on the island of St. Croix in the Danish West Indies. 

A legend, by definition, is someone who is extremely well-known to excel at something notable, who’s influenced our culture, or changed the world in some way. In short: Someone BIG.

It goes without saying, but I’ll say it again, Fernie is synonymous with the term legendary: legendary snow, legendary views, legendary people. Steph Fleming is no exception. When she opened Infinitea eight years ago, some locals laughed at the idea of yet another coffee shop but what they didn’t know was that it would evoke so much more.

Welcome to the best month of the year. March marks an incredibly peaceful time with destiny as the theme. Mars merges in the sky with the north node, in Gemini, while the rest of the planets move through Aquarius and Pisces.

All planets are direct this month, continuing to create momentum on earth. With so many planets in Aquarius and Pisces there is a palpable loving and mystical energy especially with the new moon in Pisces 03/13. The Libra full moon 03/28 has a bitter sweetness as the sun conjuncts Venus and Chiron to oppose the moon ie: the wound surfaces.

An abundance of artistic imagery and journeys have coloured the pages of the Fernie Fix. We caught up with some of the women painters, potters, writers and musicians we have featured in past to share their thoughts on legends, obstacles and inspiration.

Sorely missed in 2020, Bent On Art: Kootenay Queer & Trans Art Festival returns for 2021 in an online format. Join us virtually for a series of events designed to promote the work of LGBTQ+ artists in the Kootenays (and across British Columbia) while creating educational opportunities, fostering community connection & promoting resilience through the arts. The festival was founded by Samonte Cruz in 2018 & is now delivered in partnership with Samonte Cruz Studios and the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council. 

Hillbilly Elegy became insanely popular, as the public grasped for some understanding of what was happening to their democracy, rising to the top of the New York Times’ best seller list, and cementing J.D. Vance’s reputation as an “expert” on white poverty.

WiFi is broadcast in a torus (doughnut) shape from your antenna. This means that the signal is strongest with the furthest reach along a perpendicular axis from the antenna. So, ideally, you have your WiFi router in the centre of the house about computer high and that should get most of it. Of course, not every house is configured that way. And that’s why we sometimes need a WiFi repeater or extender.

Carving it up is the practice of going after what you want with absolute. It can also be the simple task of carving out time for your passion. 

Fernie is a diverse little town, unique not only in its surroundings but its people, community and mind-set. We’re here because we want to be here, because the mountains offer us a spark, and to each this spark is distinct. This spark swims in our minds, sizzles in our body and invigorates our soul.
