We believe that a healthy democracy can only survive when its citizens debate the critical issues of the day. This means we must have an on-going dialogue where we share our thoughts with our fellow citizens.

Towards that purpose World Community created a “magazine” style website where community groups from the Comox Valley and beyond could share their information and media relevant to local social justice, environmental and democracy issues.

Lawrence J.W. Cooper, Comox Valley Poet LaureateLike most of you who watch the day to day horrors of what is happening in our poor suffering world, I was shocked but not surprised by what happened in Washington on January 6th. Why this paradox? I knew it was definitely a situation created and ready to happen, so I was not surprised when it did. I guess I was shocked that the forces of truth and decency allowed it to happen. It should have been just a big show of cursing angry obscenities, waving confederate flags, followed by a peaceful dispersion, and people going home feeling they had fulfilled their patriotic duty to protest. Instead it turned out to be a big victory for the big lie.

Shoreline armoring has altered many intertidal beaches. Living Shoreline techniques aim to improve shoreline conditions by re-creating some of the functions of natural shorelines. Recent design implementations include complete removal of armoring, as well as eco-engineering approaches.

TC_NormReynolds_2017_600x400Having just read the 1200 page The Rise and fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer, I am amazed and terrified at the parallels between the buffoon, would be dictator to the south, and the Third Reich’s disastrous leader that left so many dead people while destroying nations in his wake.

Dorothea logoWhen I went through my DreamBuilder training, I found out why I had failed so many times in the past: I had tried to approach my dreams with willpower - which requires a lot of energy. Since energy fluctuates through the day, I often didn’t have enough left over to use for my dream. I had ‘decision fatigue’.
