Highways Closed to Save Damage
March 3, 1932
To save the highways from damage by traffic during the spring break-up, the public works department has decided to take the step of closing those of them that are in the worst shape. The Trail-Castlegar section will be closed. The highway from South Slocan to Nakusp will be closed also from Nakusp to Edgewood. Bus and truck concerns have been consulted regarding closing the roads during the beak-up and have agreed to move.
Housing for Nakusp
February 28, 1952
Nakusp, in common with most communities in the Province, could have used a dozen new houses at any time in the past three or four years. There just hasn’t been enough houses available in the province. Now, as soon as Celgar gets its Timber Management Licence and progress begins to take shape here, there will be a great and urgent need for housing. It is predicted that as many as 400 houses are needed. Even if the figure is exaggerated, it is staggering.
March 1, 1972
The social calendar of Nakusp seems to get terribly busy at this time of year. It seems we always have a rush of events in February and early March. I understand the Nakusp Conservation Association has moved its annual fish and game banquet ahead about a month to get out of the crowded social calendar.
Province Must Have
Courage to Change says Suffredine
February 28, 2002
British Columbia must have the courage to change if the province is to experience economic prosperity and renew social services. Suffredine underlines how steps being taken by the government are aimed at ensuring students and patients are the top priority. He stressed that the Public Education Flexibility and Choice Act combined with lifting the tuition freeze will provide more opportunities for students in the Kootenays.
