In this bleak, mild winter weather, lets enjoy a sunny day July story written by an air force officer (location anywhere).
Two doors away from us when we lived on an air base was a most attractive young wife, who frequently appeared in her yard dressed in very short shorts and halter top.
Coming out of my quarters one day I noticed she was working in her garden in her usual attire. While getting an eyeful I opened my car door and got in to drive to my office.
Reaching for the starter, I discovered, much to my dismay and to the amusement of my wife, who happened to be looking out the window that I was sitting in the back seat.
To everyone who came and supported our hot dog sale or supported us otherwise. With everyones efforts we were able to raise enough money to get me an insulin pump.
Our extended thank you goes to the Nickel family, Wal-Mart, Grimms Meats, Coke Ltd., BX-Swan Lake Fire hall, Bakers Dozen and our friends who helped us put on the sale. Again, my thanks, this will change my life forever.
Well, well Mr. Edgson, you missed the whole point of my letter regarding taxes and productivity which was that lower taxes do not mean higher productivity. Read it again.
As for your buddy Gordon Campbell, he holds the record for creating and maintaining B.C.s record as a have not province with his 2001 tax cuts. Moreover its not due to good management but good luck that the province finds itself in good financial shape today. Were it not for high resource prices wed be drowning in debt. Think back to 2001. The first thing Campbell did was to cut taxes; the second thing was to head off to New York to borrow money. Fortunately the NDP left him a good credit rating. Check it out with some economists who dont work for the Fraser Institute.
Jokes that insult ethnic minorities are no longer simply, politically incorrect, but completely unacceptable in any communication.
An e-mail of the kind received by Mr. Mayes is an opportunity to challenge and correct stereotypes that insult and demean.
I believe leadership means taking actions that stand up for and show high regard for all peoples in our community.
What a blessing it is for Vernon to have this wonderful facility. My first time to use it, I even got a ride in an ambulance. The ward was so busy the first week in January, but they treated me quickly and with dignity.
Thank you, to volunteers like Joanne Kineshanko helping to raise money (Light A Bulb campaign) to help supply the needed equipment for the emergency ward.
The doctors, technicians and nurses of Vernon Jubilee Hospital should be very proud. I know Im very proud of them. It was a very positive experience I had bringing in the new year.
