It’s that time of year again! Christmas carols in every store, sweet Hallmark movies on TV that make us cry, and everyone on social media celebrating “the most wonderful time of the year.” That’s the type of holiday celebrations our North American culture encourages, even though our families may be spread throughout the world and have many generations, religions, races, in-laws and out-laws to manage. We may also carry memories of our own childhood holidays that have blurred into Norman Rockwell perfection, even if they were far from it.

My husband, Gary, has an inoperable brain tumor that wraps around three lobes of his brain. This can affect his memory, hearing, comprehension, speech and more, but he copes remarkably well. His biggest frustrations for himself deal with his issues surrounding aphasia (difficulty expressing oneself through speech), anomia (difficulty remembering names of things), and hearing loss.

Just because your dog is friendly, it doesn’t mean they will joyfully welcome your new baby. I work with a lot of people who bring home a new baby and discover their dog is very unhappy with the new addition.

From the dog’s perspective, this is a big change in their routine. There’s often a change in exercise habits, less on-demand attention and usually an invasion of their space in a very different way. These changes may last the rest of the dog’s life and, as children mature, things continue to change over several years. That’s a very big adjustment for the family dog.

The RDEK Electoral Area Housing Needs Report will be presented to the community during an  information session next week. 

“We are excited to be able to share the key findings from the Housing Needs Report, talk about  some of the trends observed across the region and answer questions from attendees,” explains  Planning Coordinator, Karen MacLeod.  

Kindness is an incredibly important part of the human experience. Kindness towards others, of course, but also kindness towards ourselves. We are entering into the part of the year when we are often more inclined to be selfless and give, give, give, without turning the tables and directing that same care inwards. I’ve shifted the definition of self-care in my mind and now consider it to be less self-indulgent and more health-focused. How can you better care for yourself than by promoting improved mental and physical health?

May is the “Community” issue of the Fernie Fix and never has the idea of community seemed so topical and essential as it does now. This pandemic has become an ultra marathon and even if we can’t feel the effects of the stress acutely, it is undoubtedly chipping away at our defences and ready to rear its ugly head when we least expect it.
