The Napi Friendship Centre in Pincher Creek was dark on Friday May 22, and filled with the sounds of shooting and yelling with the occasional bright flash starkly illuminating a sea of faces. Approximately 25 people were there to participate in the the "Call of Duty Black Ops II' Tournament, the first video gaming event that Napi has hosted. Youth Outreach Workers Hope Grier-Stewart and Leland English viewed it as a triumph. At any given time there were 8 kids playing as the rest cheered them on, critiqued the action, and visited with each other.

I am very frustrated by the construction that is happening on James Avenue, and the process of notification to the surrounding neighbors.
On April 27th, Council for the Town of Pincher Creek formally approved the Terms of Reference for the new Police Advisory Committee and passed a second motion appointing Committee Members. These approvals formalize the process for receiving input from the community and the partnership between the community, the RCMP and local government.
