To The Editor:

On Tuesday, Nelson City Council will make a decision whether the 300-block of Victoria Street will become a parking lot for buses, a transit exchange. I’m opposed to this.

Many of the people most directly affected by this decision (home- and property-owners, businesses, service providers) have expressed frustration with the public...

To The Editor:

I’m sure that the residents who live on Washington St. are litterly shaking their head over this article. Speeding on Washington Street is just as bad as it ever has been. The narrower roadway has made no difference.

As Washington Street is a busy street, I can assure you that the police officer hasn’t even exited his car before everyone...

Open letter to the Saturday mask and pandemic protesters,
