Village Voice in the New Year

Submitted by Don Beggs:

Happy New Year everyone!  Congratulations to our new councilors, mayor and school officials who were chosen by a reasonably good showing of our citizens at the polls. Bravo to those whom marked their choices!

Village Voice has the earnest hope that these leaders will wish to communicate individually and collectively with as many of our citizens as they are able. It is the wish of the organization to encourage that communication without bias,and to ensure that concerns and issues are well understood and addressed by our municipal representatives.

The MISSION is solely to create a vocal organizations to bring issues before our leaders and to promote unity in moving our community towards addressing majority expectations, without disregarding the voice of individuals who might have ideas , opinions, concerns or even grievances, which deserve serious attention, if not enthusiastic action.

NEXT MEETING
Agenda:
• Structuring and electing an executive.
• A plan for interaction with our community agencies, community organizations and elected leaders.
• Agreement on some issues and their possible resolution to be taken to council or school board for direct term attention.
• Gallery representation at council and or School Board meetings.

More Cold Pricklies

Yesterday I went for a drive up the Quatchka Creek Valley and found a dead mature doe that someone had thrown off the bridge.  On closer inspection, I found that it had been shot and stripped of the prime meat only, (hind quarters, etc) and the rest left.  Cold prickles to this person or persons.

Cold Pricklies For Star Lake (Ab)users

I was up at Star Lake New Years day and found that someone had been there New Years Eve.  The fire they left was hot enough to get started with a little kindling if I had wanted to.  I cleaned up the mess they left – Kokanee beer cans handy wipes, etc, but I couldn’t reach the beer cans and the rest of the garbage that they had thrown out on the ice. (What a mess!) My wife and I just moved here in July, and noticed that the people here have such high community pride like my wife and I had where we moved from and now have here in this beautiful area we now call home.  I just don’t understand how people can be so disrespectful of one of gods wonderful achievements. I cant help but think of the children that go there,what are we teaching them?

7th Annual Polar Bear Swim

Write up via Dennie Bohn and photos via Anita Rose – thanks ladies!

There were seven brave people who took the plunge this year. The two youngest were Teagan Hutchinson and Keadon Braccoiner.  Glenn Little had a fire going which was wonderful!  As well, we were able to collect two bags of food for the Gold River Food Bank. This was the 7th year that we have been doing this. We did have smaller numbers this year, but fun was had by all in the 0 degree weather.
