Well, quite the day was Tuesday. While my wife Carolyn was in Kentucky for the famous Derby, my daughter Casey and I were in a bit of a track meet ourselves.

As everyone knows by now, one of our llamas got out of her enclosure and went for a sight seeing tour of Ootischenia and Castlegar. While it has been written that Cocoa has been on the “lam” three times, the truth is this is her...

The Editor, The Nelson Daily:

Calls to end the infamous 'War on Drugs' don't just come from the funny dressed hairy crowd anymore.

Over the decades a number of Canadian senate committees have called for an end to it and the conservative Fraser Institute has condemned it since 2001.

To the Editor:

Once again it is spring in the land of Happily Ever After and the mayor's thoughts have turned to travel.

Some time ago in his not so peaceful court he was rebuked for his travel plans to a far and distant kingdom. However, being the King of the land, he said to his court, nay I shall bring this back to court and I shall take even more of you on our journey. Now...
