Enough excuses

I'm not unhappy with the kids, just the organization. Can we get a banner for the most losses? The last time the Cougars results were this similar was in 1989-90 in Victoria they played 72 games and lost 65.

Protest was about cuts

I (as a protest organizer)just want everyone who is speaking against us to know that WE ARE NOT in any way protesting the Olympics, it's too late for that. We chose that location because it seems to be a symbolic location.

I was involved in a car accident on Monday Jan. 25 between Sunhill Road and Old Cariboo Hwy. where I slid off the road and flipped onto the drivers side of my van. I never got to thank all the emergency personnel for their kind words and help.

We use more water than anyone else in the country. Really.

In Saturday's paper there was an interesting article on our city's water supply. It was good until I got to the last paragraph about us using more water than just about anyone else in the country.
