Cheers & Jeers October 17th

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

JEERS to the person that is constantly racing around Radium. You speed down the street beside the kid’s park while smoking AND talking on your cellphone. Get a hobby and slow the heck down before you hit someone’s child!

Big Cheers to all our volunteers and merchants/supporters of the CV Rockies Amazing Race!

Jeers to the inconsiderate drivers coming out of Wilmer who do not stop at the sign and yield to those of us coming down Peters Hill causing us to have to slam on our brakes so that we don’t rear end you. Use some common courtesy and wait your turn!

Cheers to Jeff and team at Canadian Tire for squeezing me in and putting my winter tires on when you were fully booked. I had a safe drive back to Calgary. Much appreciated!

Cheers to Uncle Owen and cousins Quentin and Wenonah for your wonderful hospitality during our visit to Invermere. We loved every minute of it and can’t wait to see you again!

A wholehearted Cheers to the wonderful people at the Invermere Post Office. Kind-hearted heroes all! They have been so helpful during a very difficult time for me, going above and beyond on so many occasions, and I just wanted them to know how very much it is appreciated.

Cheers to the green recycling bins at the Columbia Valley Landfill! Yes, it’s a bit more work to sort our recyclables and a bit more out of the way to unload them, but if more refuse is diverted from the landfill and regional tax dollars are SAVED, it’s well worth the effort!

Cheers to the awesome and honest person who turned my wallet in at AG Valley Foods on October 8th, and for the kind staff member who found me in the parking lot. The AG staff are always saving me! Cheers to y’all.

Cheers to Pizza2Go! Incredible service and great pizza!

Cheers & Jeers
