Over turned 4 way stop barrels on Baker St

As I was standing at the 4 way stop barrels on Baker and Josephine St. the  storm arrived with pouring rain and wind. The barrels fell over on to the street making it a real hazard for the pedestrians and vehicles. People were out on the street trying to keep them up right. The city needs to resolve this issue and apologize to the citizens of Nelson for standing in the pouring rain to take care of their unfinished business.


There should be a law about gas stations uping their prices whenever they want. I am talking about a local station that must think that is ok to up ther price .05 cents whenever they want. The latest increase doesn't seem to have worked because none of the other stations have followed. I say boycott this station and teach them a lesson.

Alpine Safety Code

Skiing is a wonderful sport. It involves many people sliding in different directions on a slippery surface. There are some universally recognized rules to maximize the enjoyment and minimize the risks of injuries through the interaction of all those skiers. These basics rules are often printed on lift tickets. Part of the education of skiers involves understanding those basic rules that can be called Alpine (skier or boarder) safety code. They are often referred to as Responsibility Code or Etiquette.


Canada and US set for showdown on Columbia River Treaty

The stage is being set for a showdown between Canada and the US over the post 2014 Columbia River Treaty, as the two countries recently stated radically different visions for the upcoming renewal of the cross-border agreement.

The province wants to keep things much as they are with some improvements and more cash flowing from the agreement, while the Americans want to overhaul it from the ground up.


On behalf of our small Golden City Days committee, I would like to thank Adrian and the Rossland Telegraph for helping promote our wonderful community weekend.

It's great having an online newspaper in our community!

GARDEN WISDOM: Working in the Worm Factory

This is the story of how I came to be a worm farmer. It wasn’t a role I had ever envisioned myself in, but when we started selling the Worm Factory 360 vermicomposting kit last winter, I was intrigued. I was surprised how many we were selling, and so I began looking at reviews on Youtube and elsewhere. The buzz about the Worm Factory 360 seemed very positive. The manufacturer’s website had some persuasive video content on it, and they invite interested parties to request a booklet on how the system works. I requested it, and was genuinely impressed by how comprehensive it was.

6 Year Old Loses the Chance to Receive Medical Marijuana in Michigan

Talking about her son, Jenny Allen, a 32 year old resident of Lansing said, “Having been diagnosed with autism, several kinds of therapies and medications have been tried on him but problems like self destructive behavior and biting continue to mount.”

“We have tried giving mind bending medications, signed up for behavior therapy and even changed the diet patters, but they have not worked,” said Allen.

Garden of Wisdom: The "Cabbage of Choice"

I’m not sure if it’s just our growing area, but Ladner has what I would describe as an abundantly healthy population of Small White butterflies. So many so, that most years I don’t even bother growing Brassicas. The butterfly (Pieris rapae), lays a single tiny yellow egg on the underside of a Brassica leaf.
