The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan for January 10

This we like

As we emerge from holiday sloth to the cold dreary slog of January and February, how about a big round of applause for all those committed to driving forward?

The New Year is supposed to be a time of renewal, but for many it can be a time best described as “waiting for the sun.”

Don’t wait. Follow those leaders and start making spring bloom.

 

This we don’t

We like our NHL hockey as much as the next person, but was any one else a little annoyed with the breathless coverage counting down the end of the lockout this weekend?

Like many Canadians, we adopted a “call us when it’s over” approach to the work stoppage for the professional version of Canada’s national sport.

Instead we got hours of reporters saying “there’s no news yet.”
