Letter: KCN publishes a stand-out edition

I always appreciate reading about my city, but this edition seems to have really stood out.

To the editor:

I just want to give a “thumbs up” for the latest issue of Kelowna Capital News on Friday, Feb. 5, 2016.

I found several of the articles and comments particularly interesting. These include the lengthy but interesting lead article by Kevin Parnell on Bitcoins. It made fascinating reading, and I’m betting some megalomaniac will make it his/her life’s ambition to accumulate all 21 million of the bitcoins.

I really appreciated how the article explained our shaky world financial system without the gold standard.

I also appreciated the letter from Gary Bozek explaining the differences between the digital and rotary power meters. I used to work for BC Hydro, and I know some of the meters were far from accurate some of the time. It was an informative letter, and I appreciate Mr. Bozek taking the time to write his knowledgeable explanation.

Finally, I enjoyed Charlie Hodge’s account of John Scott, the NHL player. I am not an avid hockey fan, so I didn’t know the story, but it seems to rate a movie to me…sort of like a Rudy.

I thought you should be aware of how much this reader enjoyed this edition of your newspaper. I always appreciate reading about my city, but this edition seems to have really stood out. Thanks.

Caroline Waugh, Kelowna
