No excuse for drunk driving

Page 5 of 6

Could someone explain to me what the muni is doing with the Valley Drive bridge in Alpine?

I find it curious (yet hilarious) that the employees dug a bunch of large potholes on both lanes and left the southbound closed, when it's just as bad as the northbound one.

Fair enough if they were actually doing the repairs, but to tell the truth, I haven't seen anybody working on it for about a week. Where is the logic in this? Have they abandoned the project?

I was just on my patio this morning watching this angry guy kicking the construction signs and swearing at the top of his lungs, which compelled me to write and demand answers.

I am quite certain that I'm not the only one puzzled over this bizzare procedure.

Generous drivers make difference

Just a quick word of thanks to all of the drivers who drove their vehicles through the Ken Quon Memorial Carwash in Marketplace last Saturday. You were very generous with your donations. Likewise with your purchase of the hot dogs at the BBQ.

A big thank you goes out to the Whistler firefighters, volunteers from WORCA, Marketplace IGA, Trilogy, Sabre Rentals and Grace and Martha who lovingly rolled all those dogs on the grill.

The proceeds from this event will be coupled with the earnings from the Ken Quon Ride On bike day on Aug. 8 this year. The day includes a family ride, a Toonie ride, the Remax Corridor Cup Team Race and, for the first time, the B.C. Cup Championship cross country race.

Last year's events provided the funds to purchase an imaging camera that allows our firefighters to pinpoint humans in smoke-filled areas and possibly save lives.

See you on Aug. 8.

Students clean up

Re: Myrtle Philip students clean the air!

Congratulations to all the students at Myrtle Philip Community School who participated in the annual Commuter Challenge and Wheeling Wednesdays in June. Many people wheeled their way to school under their own power, car-pooled, took the bus or just plain walked.

On Wheeling Wednesdays students also made donations to Bikes for Humanity , as a way to reach out and help people less fortunate than themselves.

A big thank you to local businesses who donated draw prizes for Wheeling Wednesdays: Jenine at Evolution, Nada at Showcase, Jayson at Escape Route, Dan at Armchair Books, the Whistler Bike Company, Keenan at Whistler Eco-Tours and Rusty at Katmandu. Your prizes make the event lots of fun.
