What Does Griz Do During the Summer Story Writing Contest

What Does Griz Do During the Summer Story Writing ContestPosted: Jan 17, 2019

Storytelling is an ancient artform we continue to use today. Everyone has a bit of storytelling in them. The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is running a contest for the 2019 Griz Days. The hope is to draw out the storytelling skills of the children and youth of the Elk Valley as they share their ideas of what the Griz does during the summer.

Legend has it, the Griz is a tall man with shoulders six feet wide.

Needs, Values, and Expectations

Needs, Values, and ExpectationsPosted: Jan 06, 2019

The first thirty days of this local government, on your behalf, have been a steep learning curve. The vertical wall of learning so far has included; appreciating the health and condition of our municipal assets, our current infrastructure deficit, the amount of water loss we experience due to ageing infrastructure, upgrades needed in our sewer lagoons, a public works building condemned, a public engagement framework trying to gain support, setting service levels, solid waste management, and of course - snow removal. These are just a few of the issues on our radar.

January 2019 Astrology

January 2019 AstrologyPosted: Jan 05, 2019

Change and Opportunity mark the major themes after three years of legitimate stagnated energy. Mars, the planet that rules drive and motivation moves into the very beginning of Aries as the month begins. Things will be done with a quick, large, impulsive, and pioneering energy.

This month also contains a partial solar eclipse and a total lunar eclipse which also occurs over the full moon. Eclipse energy propels a domino effect helping move your life over the next sixth months and truly, throughout the year. January 2019 is TRULY a new year.

A vegan diet, which means abstaining from consuming animal products, so the only thing vegans eat is garden salad, right? This is far from true.
