Pay parking too costly

Page 6 of 7

Maybe we've joined Greece in inventive accounting, me thinks. If we assume that total salaries are about $450,000 and are half of the Centre's total cost of say $900,000 as an estimate -then the Centre is likely costing the taxpayers about $800,000 a year, as revenues from outside communities are less than 11 per cent of costs. Apparently our mayor thinks sustainability is going to replace capitalism, however, to me it looks more like this "Sacred Cow" is due for the slaughterhouse.

And the winner is....

The results from the 10th Annual Harvest Soup Contest held on October 9th are in with 650 bowls of soup being served up in three hours.

First place went to Bob Haselbach from Roland's Pub who served up the amazing Twice Smoked Bacon and Wild Sockeye Salmon Chowder, second place went to The Dubh Linn Gate with its Hill Top Roasted Pear & Amber Ghost Squash Soup and third place went to The Fairmont Chateau Whistler for its Roasted Potato and Leek.

Honorable mentions go to The Cracked Pepper Café for their delicious first time effort, netting them fourth spot; Gone Village Eatery for the most beautiful display decorations; The Four Seasons for their very daring and beautifully presented Pho Soup, and Ric's and The Mix for their always enthusiastic participation and culinary perfection... no three-peat this year, but  there is always next year!

RMOW web design disappoints

After reading an obviously manicured press release about the new Municipality (of Whistler) website, I went online to check it out. And let me tell you - I was floored by how unimpressive the new website is.

I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination but, like so many others, I am on the web almost daily and can easily tell the difference between something that looks like it's worth $50,000+ and something that looks like the local high school website.

A friend of mine, who is currently finishing his Masters in Computer Science at UBC, also took a look at the site and noted that apparently all the links from his Google search landed him on the homepage? Seriously?

To be honest, I'm pretty disappointed with whoever the project manager was at the municipality. As a local business owner, I was hoping that it would blow people away when considering coming to Whistler. Instead it is boring, text heavy and frankly - ugly.
