The wonderful cooking duo, Becky and Corbs are at it again. This time with a special Easter edition. Have you ever made Hot Cross Buns?

As much as I love all of the seasons, spring holds a special place in my heart. A time of year that signifies new growth, fresh starts and warmer days. The magical time of year when for many, spending longer durations outside becomes possible.

I had planned to write an article about trying to be greener when it comes to the products you put in and on your body, the way you consume and dispose of goods in your home, as well as examine options in health care for being a little more green. All of this has become really challenging when we are going through a pandemic.

The featured dog this month is Koda! The smiley red-headed boy who has more friends than he can count on all four paws. He’s humble about it, in fact, he’s the balanced social type who doesn’t have to say hi to everyone but always gets along.

Welcome to Cooking with Corbs - the Fernie Fix's newest online piece featuring local cooking queen, Becky Swanson of Sweetcakes and Sidekicks and her son, Corbin Hus who just turned 8 in February.

The physicians of the Elk Valley want you all to know that we are working hard ensure the safety and survival of our beloved Elk Valley community. We are now pleading with you to do all you can to slow the spread of COVID-19. If we never experience the terrible storm here in our Elk Valley like that we’ve seen on the news in other areas, then we’ll know we have done the best we can to keep our community safe. We do not want you to get ill. We do not want to admit you to hospital. We do not want to transfer you to an intensive care bed far from your home.

A year ago this month I lost my best friend, Fezzik the Dog. Fernie is a dog town. Most people understand what losing a pet means to us humans.

Regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), BC is unable to screen all symptomatic patients or potential exposures. As per provincial recommendations, IF you have been out of the country (including the United States) in the past 2 weeks, you are advised to self-quarantine at home.

Every day Fernie receives visitors from around the world. Gone are the days when town was only busy in winter and these days, we don't really have downtime. This is wonderful for the local folk who rely on visitors and it means that businesses have the opportunity to thrive year-round. 

Is your dog snuggling by the fire, dreaming of fresh grass, alpine meadows and sunny days at the lake? Not all dogs are built for Rocky Mountain winter weather and by this time of year, some are feeling the effects of the long cold days.
