Volume 24 Monday February 18, 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org Welcome to the 24th issue of Kimberley Chronicle. We are happy to announce that we have achieved over a thousad reads online, and that’s without a website! Check out our Facebook Page, the website will likely be a while. While we try to stay politically neutral here at the Chronicle, we’d like to plug a cause that we think would be cool. We don’t know most of the technical or financial details, and we’re not even hard-core paddlers; we just think that if it’s possible, let’s make Mark Creek a sweet spot to hang out. Since this is a paper written in a basement in Marysville and we don’t need to advertise condos to Albertans (Happy Family Day Alberta by the way) we can say whatever we want.
Mark Creek has likely flooded every several years for the last 10,000 years. It wasn’t until folks started to build houses along the banks of the Creek that it became a problem. The first noted flood was in 1898, another one hit in 1916. However it wasn’t until 1948 that there was much to damage (see picture). In 1950 the first flume was built, however high water in 1956 damaged the flume. It was straightened and rebuilt in 1956. 56 years later the concrete was removed which leaves us at now. A group of whitewater enthusiasts that have been around since 2009 (www.kootenayriverlife.ca) have put forward a Whitewater Park Proposal for the section of Mark Creek where the flume once was.

Now we at Kimberley Chronicle understand that the city has important and boring thigs to worry about like water lines and snow plows. It’s up to residents to make fun things like kayak waves, inner tube runs and swimming holes happen. Such feats take an incredible amount of work and organization; however they have the ability to change a communicty for the better for generations to come. We’re not recommending that our readers go moving rocks around in the creek (at least not yet), however a good way to start would be to go drink some beer at the Dirtbag Festival. Some of the proceeds from the festival will go going towards this awesome and ambitious project. A minister is stopped by a state trooper for speeding. The trooper

Glenn sends his son, Evan to bed. Five minutes later, Evan screams downstairs, “Dad! Can you get me a glass of water?” Glenn says, “No. You had your chance.” After a minute Evan screams again, “Dad! Can you get me a glass of water?” Glenn says, “No. I told you, you had your chance. If you ask one more time, I’ll come up there and spank you.” After a short silence, the father hears, “Dad! When you come up to spank me, can you bring me a glass or water?” Q: What did the flood say to Japan? A: Nothing, it just waved What do you call one lawyer thrown off a bridge into a river?
