New correspondent

The 70 Mile House column will have a new correspondent with an old name. Ken Alexander has volunteered to write the column, so please give him any news that you wish to see in the paper. It has been difficult doing the column by long-distance and I welcome Ken who is closer to the area and is an experienced writer.
