Dorothy Durham: nursing, ranching and feminism - The Free Press

Friday, June 2, 2017

Her nephew Bud Dicken was a prominent local business person, and the local elementary school is named after her aunt Isabella Dicken.“When I was growing up in Fernie, I could walk up and down the streets and tell you who lived in every house,” she said. “We were really more isolated as a community than it is now where there’s tourists and ski people.”Following in her mother’s footsteps, Durham became a nurse and began working at the local hospital.In 1967 she married a rancher and moved to Jaffray where she left an indelible mark on that community.

She became involved in the Waldo Stock BreedersLivestock Association and remains their secretary to this day.She describes her ranching days as some of the hap...

COLUMN: Reading in our neck of the woods - Nelson Star

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

A Canterbury Trail by Angie Abdou, about a strange pilgrimage of an odd assemblage of rednecks and hippies to a ski hut—with a nod to Chaucer—near a town a whole lot like Fernie. In children’s author Ann Alma’s Summer of Changes, a girl and her border collie hide out in the oh-so-familiar Kootenay mountains. Ann’s books bring us sharply back to the experience of childhood while challenging her characters—and our expectations. In Never Going Back, by Antonia Banyard, a group of friends reunites in Nelson to attend a funeral and revisit their collective past. The local environment as seen through these under-30s is sharply rendered. Open Secret by mystery writer Deryn Collier involves an spa...
