Rave rift

You got to hand it to the people behind Summer Break Music Festival 8 - they sure know how to promote an event. A website, a contracted ticket seller, top names in electronic music, four stages, natural surroundings. It all sounds like a dream rave.

Divide and conquer

Now that the kids are back at school it is starting to feel like fall. All the signs are here. The sign is up in Brackendale for the Fall Fair. The nights feel colder. Darkness arrives earlier.

Support shipbuilding industry

This letter was sent to Conservative MP John Weston and copied to The Chief for publication. Mr.

The beginning of another great year in Squamish

September is my favourite month, and not just because of the warm late summer weather and crisp evenings. For me September signals the start of a new year, more so than January.

At least I don't Twitter

I'm not always proud of the things that I do. Too often I get smug and sanctimonious about things, and then have to backtrack and rationalize when I find myself, well, being hypocritical. Technology, it seems tops the list.
