All proceeds from the single going to The Band Aid Trust.However, it was made available last week for online download and purchase, and proved very popular, despite Apple’s iTunes service choosing not to sell it. “With the track being available for download we’re able to raise tens of thousands of pounds for the children of Africa even before a single CD is sold”, said Ben Drury, Managing Director of 7 Digital Media, the company behind the official download version of Do They Know It’s Christmas.The launch of Band Aid 20 was handled by Rainier PR, which donated its services at no charge.The Band Aid 20 track can be downloaded for £1.49 with a special bundle including the original for £1.99. The video is also available for download at £2.50. Ringtone and images for mobile phones are also available for purchase, as is a video version for mobile phones.Sadly it seems that the track download only works if you are using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer v5.01 (or higher) browser, so we couldn’t buy it online.At the site you can also order the CD or make a donation to the Band Aid Trust.

Happy New Year from Kerry Reed and all the staff at Reel Adventures Fishing Charters.2013 is a upon us and so is more great fishing on Kootenay Lake.So sit back and enjoy a preview of how to catch the big one on your next fishing outing with the Reel Adventures Charters Fishing Report The past couple months have not been as productive as I expected. However, the past couple weeks have helped make up for it. November & December saw some inconsistent fishing. Seems like the fish would only feed once a week. And if you were lucky enough to be out there on that day, it was rewarding. Over the holidays, our fishing really began to get good though. Finally, maybe it’s just a late start to our fall fishery. The past couple weeks we have had many days with many fish to the boat. Some days catching up to 1a dozen fish has made it exciting. And it’s that time of year when we seem to catch our biggest fish. In fact, last week, in two days we managed to hook into 20 fish ranging from 10 – 20 pounds. Those were a couple of hot days. I hope to see more of that throughout our winter. What are they biting on??? A little bit of everything it seems. When the fishing has been slow, people are trying every lure in the box. But, when the fish are feeding, it’s the usual suspects that go to work. We’re still catching on Bucktail flies. My favorites are the 203, 210, 215, and 228. Or for those that don’t know the numbers: Grey ghost, November Special, and black/white. Also working at this time of year are the Bill Norman lures. Common colors like the purple/silver, black/silver, or the rainbow trout. These will work good throughout the winter, but make sure you slow your speed down for these lures. And finally, my Lyman plugs have been working a bit also. Some on the surface, or some on downrigger. It all depends what the fish want. My favorites lately have been # 10, 55, 69, and 160. Big fish season is here. So, be patient and be rewarded !! Tight lines………….. Kerry Reed Reel Adventures Charters Nelson B.C

Rogers Bombers continue to roll on the West Kootenay High School Fieldhockey scene.The Bombers dominated a Stanley Humphries Rockers squad from Castlegar from start to finish en route to a 5-1 victory in action Thursday at the Pass Creek Fields.Stanley Humphries playing the game with eleven players ran into a brick wall as the Bombers controlled the game from the beginning and did not look back, chances and goals coming often for the Bombers. “Great passing and running by the Bombers kept Stanley Humphries on their heels all game,” said coach Bruce Walgren.LVR opened the scoring when Hanna Quinn combined some quick passing by the midfield, Allie Zondervan Noa Butterfield and Naomi Perkins. Emma Borhi scored the Bombers second of the game on a pass from Hanna Quinn and rookie Kassandra Schloeder to give LVR a 2-0 lead at the half.Rookie Liza Demski, Quinn and Borhi also scored in the second half.Stanley Humphries ruined the shutout bid by keeper Cammille Gebharts in the second half.”Much like in Oliver the lady bombers were very solid in the back line, Heather Potkins, Kyra Burkart, Noa Butterfield, Emma Gregorich, and Rookie Mia Kraus,” Walgren explained.”The nidfield lead by the stellar play of Allie Zondervan and Naomi Perkins just kept the pressure on Stanley Humphries and continuously fed the front line for some terrific scoring opportunities.”

In late March, five-star center Diamond Stone (Milwaukee, Wisc.) committed to Maryland over home-state program Wisconsin. This, obviously, did not please Badgers’ fans. Stone took a beating from various UW faithful on Twitter, message boards, etc. Wisconsin lost to Duke, 68-63, in the national championship game Monday night. This seems to please the future Terrapins’ big man. — All Eyes On Me (@Diamond_Stone33) April 7, 2015I LOVE — All Eyes On Me (@Diamond_Stone33) April 7, 2015They Do A lot Of Talking…— All Eyes On Me (@Diamond_Stone33) April 7, 2015Stone will get his chance to quiet the Wisconsin fans next season.

The call comes from Deputy Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Maxine Headlam, who noted that accommodation for these children is one of the Ministry’s priorities that private schools can take advantage of, “because the Ministry, at present, does not have the scope to meet all the needs in those areas”.
