I am concerned by a Nelson trend in retail business. Before, it was “the customer is always right” which indicated respect and deference in serving the public. But today, (because of region? age group? mindset?) this is not being taught. I can think of 3 times recently when it was the employee that was supported in front of and in spite of the customer’s presence. I am one who values customer service so much, I implore employers to give this a think. I shop more south, customer service is great!

Meditation can be a focus on anything you are doing. May I suggest that people learn to focus; really hear what is being said. Make it a meditative practice! Read and reread your email from someone, especially if there are questions attached. Really listen when someone is talking to you, don’t be anxious to fill in the pauses. In that silence, you might hear what they are really expressing and what they need. And be able to respond accordingly. I promote active listening for understanding!

Congratulations to all those who can not park their vehicles between the lines. You must be special and deserve to take up two spaces? Thanks for causing more energy to be wasted while people drive around looking for a place to park. Shame on you.

It’s wonderful that so many people showed up in Nelson to pay respect on Remembrance day at the Cenotaph. Ya Canada, and all that served for our freedom, thank you for the free country we live in toda

To the rude receptionist at the RCMP office in Nelson.
Please make an attempt to be professional when dealing with the public. The RCMP go out of their way to treat everyone with respect.
Please follow their example.

To all the wonderful bloom-in. The baskets, pots, planters and the gardens in the parks. The cities workers do a wonderful job. Keeping summer colourful!
