Hello and thank you for tarking the time to read this. As creator and President of Howse Business Solutions, I'd like to take this opportunity on this blog site to discuss the various aspects of community and what it means to others. There is a balance to be struck between the social sector, the environment, community development, and yet also able to increase and grow the economy. Creating a healthy community involves looking at all aspects of what makes an area thrive - there is no such thing as unsustainable growth. But what does 'sustainable growth' mean?
Seem to me that Hwy #3 has not been " significantly " inproved for over 30 years. All the way from Cranbrook to Osoyoos !! Very very dangerous highway, especially in summer with number of tourist travelling east and west plus regular trucker on a " rush " schedule. Rock Creek to Greenwood is terrible , with very few passing lanes or pullover room !! Hwy #3 $$$ helps every community big or small, from Midway, Rock Creek and Greenwood to Grand Forks, Castlegar and Cranbrook !!!!
Since RIck Mercer's appearance in Rossland last year, I have been thinking on how to help the economy of Rossland. Then I was talking to a few people about anime and thought to myself why not have an anime convention in Rossland. Sure, Rossland is smaller than Kelowna and there are some cons like that. But, I was thinking of all the pros of having an anime convention like full motels/hotels, tourist money in thw quaint coffee shops and what not. It will take time for me to get this anime convention done and it will be fun.
Do you know where that burger came from? The meat? The bun? The pickle? Unless you are polishing off a Hundred Mile burger from the Hume Hotel in Nelson, chances are you would be hard pressed to come up with an answer. March is nutrition month and this year’s theme is “Celebrating Food from Field to Table”. This fantastic theme encourages us to contemplate such questions and explore our personal relationship with where our food comes from.
For many people holiday eating can be a source of stress. We love the season’s goodies, and yet we feel guilty about indulging; concerned about health repercussions of eating rich foods and the possibility of gaining weight.
