HAVE YOUR SAY: Thanks to all who engaged, struggled with Gaza images

From Oct. 8 to 19, the moving art exhibit A Child’s View of Gaza was available for public viewing in the Comox Valley.

From Oct. 8 to 19, the moving art exhibit A Child’s View of Gaza was available for public viewing in the Comox Valley. We wish to thank all those who took the time to engage and struggle with the images. We especially thank Catherine Bell, proprietor of The Zocalo on Fifth Street, and North Island College, c/o Colleen Hanley, Associate Director, North Island College International, for providing  us with the venues for the installation. We also acknowledge the in-kind support of House of Color on Fifth Street and Heavenly Goodies.

Tons of tainted beef to the so-called Trick-or-Treaters who caused damage to people’s property this past Halloween. Should you ever grow up and become homeowners, I hope the same thing happens to you!

Our Valley has gained two new restaurants over the past few months, both of which I have recently tried and enjoyed. As both a Valley booster and a foodie, I like to see places that make that extra effort to provide both a good product and good service survive and thrive. I tried Mar’s on Main in Cumberland for breakfast earlier this week. The cook had slept in but because I was in a hurry, Mar took to the kitchen and made me a good breakfast. A friend and I went there for lunch later in the week and it was good, too. The restaurant is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. and does dinner on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, with limited but well-priced options. Apparently there is ‘music to dine by’ on Saturday nights. A second good place to eat, the Comox Eatery, opened this past week on Comox Avenue across from Simon’s Cycles. It’s open Tuesday through Saturday for breakfast, lunch and afternoon coffee. Breakfast was amazingly inexpensive ($6 for a regular breakfast) and very good as well. I tried lunch on another day and was impressed with the burger and fresh-cut fries. Like Mar’s, I understand that they are using locally produced items.
