Signing off

As Mayor Ian Sutherland reported in his Council Corner column last week, I am leaving The Chief as its editor. In fact, this is my final week at the helm of this fine ship, and writing in this prime spot.

Letters to the editor

More questions than answers on Nexen lands Editor, Do you know what is going on at the former Nexen lands? After a year of questions for the Squamish Oceanfront Development Corp. CEO and Board Chair, there are today more questions than answers.

Blindness at the barricades

A quick look around the high terraces of environmental consciousness on West Vancouver's Eagleridge Bluffs will reveal a "Who's Who" of the richest community in Canada.

What's an Adventure Centre to do?

There's one. Oh, there's another, and another and holy cow they're everywhere! Those little soccer balls hanging from rear view mirrors invaded our town last weekend and they brought with them a swarm of football (sorry, soccer) players.

Be your own spokesperson

In today's council corner, Mayor Ian Sutherland graciously acknowledges the countless hours the staff at the Chief put into portraying what occurs at a district level and in the community.

Letters to the editor

Where's the Outdoor Rec master plan? Editor, According to my Webster's encyclopedia dictionary, infrastructure isbefore marketing.

The rumour mill

Rumours are something any newspaper deals with on a daily basis. Some of our best stories come from chasing down a rumour heard from someone on the street, or emailed in to our offices. You might say unsubstantiated rumours are our stock in trade.

Council Corner

Ironically, it's not front-page news, but Steven Hill is leaving The Chief in the next week or so as its editor.His announcement started me thinking. I don't think we as a community understand how lucky we are to have the media we have in Squamish.

Letters to the editor

Not my town anymore Editor, It is with mixed feelings that I type these words. I was born and raised in Squamish. I went to school here. I made friends here. I got into trouble here. I graduated here. I got my first job here.

Shining community spirit

In the past week, Squamish has again shown itself as the kind of community of which others should take notice.
