One Ring to Bind Them: The Story of Revelstoke’s Lord of the Rings

Arleigh Garratt is the lord of the rings. She owns Garnish here in Revelstoke. It’s a little craft jewellery shop where she makes tons of rings herself. But this winter, Arleigh began offering ring workshops for people who had never jewelled anything in their lives to “DIY” their own rings. Stoke FM’s Pete Worden managed not to cut any of his fingers off at one of these workshops.

Wrecked em’…Pete’s on the Scene of a Truck Rollover and lets us know what happens to the goods…

Truck Rollovers are a potential cornucopia of reclaimed items…#LuluLemon pants, #Chewing #tobacco, #Watermelons, #Bagels, and #Shrimp.
These are just a few of the memorable truck loads that have crashed on the outskirts of Revelstoke.
It’s sometimes a grey area between scavenging and salvaging …
… and it may not always be exactly legal …
… but truck crash bonanzas are a secret perk to living in a small town along a busy(and dangerous) stretch of the Trans-Canada highway.
Stoke FM Morning Show Peter Worden Pete on the Street Highway, went to find out what are some of the most memorable truck crash bonanzas.

For those who waited, the memory of this year’s holiday train will stay with them forever, because it was the train that felt like it may never come – and when it did, you were happy you waited.
