A quick note from last week's edition: thank you so much to everyone who suggested some local restaurants! We have passed the info on to the staff and they are very excited to check those places out. We got a lot of recommendations, but a couple that got multiple mentions were Audielicious and Spicy Fusion in case you were looking for new recommendations as well.

Behind the Scenes

Our latest investigative story is now available for you to read! Check it out here:

In this article, our investigative reporter Spencer Hall attempted to dive into the permit delays affecting the resource sector in our area. Unfortunately, there were a lot of involved parties that were quite strict with their answers. To share his experience and to provide context for readers, Spencer has also written an op-ed. You can read that here:
