My name is Arne Petryshen and I’m new to Rossland.
I’m excited to be in the area and explore what it has to offer, as well as get to know the people of this city.
I’m also excited to start this new job at the newspaper.
For the past eight months I’ve been working at the newspaper in Grand Forks, and before that I was in Lethbridge, Alta.
I was born and raised in Cranbrook though, so I feel most at home when surrounded by mountains.
So a place like Rossland is a place where I have no problems living, especially with all the excitement that I hope I’ll be able to cover.
I’m going to try to cover a wide array of subjects that are of interested to people in Rossland, and to keep it interesting, I welcome any and all ideas.
Send me an email, give me a call or drop in at the office on Columbia Ave. and I’ll be happy to talk with you and listen to your story ideas.
I know that sometimes what’s covered by the media and what’s going on in the community aren’t quite in perfect harmony, but I want to try as hard as possible to have a newspaper that represents the community for what it is.
I’m an avid skier and biker, but I think I need to step up my game for Rossland.
I also don’t, at the moment, own a pickup truck to use to carry a bike in, but I hope to find one soon.
I think I’ll also need that just to get around in the snow. I’ll let you know how my sports car enjoys the winters. I’m guessing it won’t.
So, if you have a story idea or something that you feel deserves coverage, let me know.
