Here’s something to think about

It’s great to see more people expressing their views on a variety of subjects in the Nelson Star.

It’s great to see more people expressing their views on a variety of subjects in the Nelson Star. I have some comments and hope for responses.

MP Atamenenko’s bill to opt out of paying for the military should, in all fairness, be expanded to include the CBC , the arts amd cultural community and the First Nations. It would be nice not to pay for the ones you really disagree with.

The proposed new Nelson cell tower would be welcome in the Lardeau Valley where we have no service and really need it for emergencies, etc.

The solar project at L.V. Rogers teaches how expensive and impractical solar power is. It will generate enough power on an ideal summer day to operate a toaster and a tea kettle while the sun shines and all for only $20,000.

The bus issues are simple logic. If you don’t have the industry to pay the taxes, you can’t expect the service. This includes health care and schools. Howser-Glacier at over $500,000 a year in local taxes would be a start.

The protest over BC Hydro’s smart meters may be from the fact that they will catch more grow-ops and ruin our major industry.
