54-40 Or Fight
54-40 kicked of their weekend series of concerts at Blue Frog Studios in front of a more than appreciative audience. Imagine being able to see your favourite band that regularly fills much larger concert halls, in such an intimate setting. The only fighting was people trying to get a better seat.
It was somewhat of a homecoming for guitarist DAVE GENN (left) who graduated from Semiahmoo High.

Little Campbell River - Big Job
We can feel a lot safer now as BNSF has replaced the old rail bridge over the Little Campbell River near the Semiahmoo Band land.
For a couple of years now residents in White Rock have been concerned about the safety of the bridge after seeing this video of the decaying structure.
The old section of the trestle over the Little Campbell River was lifted out in one piece, the new piece was then dropped in just like a life size leggo set A Semiahmoo member looks on from the band's land as BNSF work crews dismantle the old trestle.
Thank You BNSF we will all sleep better at night knowing the bridge has now been replaced.

The Vancouver Canucks started Sunday by celebrating one of their best offensive players ever. By the end of it, the loudest cheers were for the fourth line.
After honoring Daniel Sedin's 1,000th game in a pre-game ceremony, right wing Jannik Hansen completed his first career hat trick into an empty net with 42.1 seconds left to lead the Canucks to a 4-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks at Rogers Arena.
The NJ devils are here Tuesday then the Canucks hit the road.
The Seahawks' smothering defense, the unit that swallowed up Peyton Manning and theBroncos' record-setting offense so resoundingly in Super Bowl XLVIII, got its swagger back Sunday, snuffing out the NFC West-leading Arizona Cardinals in a 19-3 smackdown at CenturyLink Field Sunday.
Now it is on to San Fransisco for a game Thursday night. Kick off 5:30

Joke Of The Day
A guy runs into Bin 101 and says, "Quick, pour me 5 shots of your best scotch." The bartender pours them and the man drinks them as fast as he can. "Wow that's the fastest I've seen anyone drink," says the bartender. "Well you'd drink that fast if you had what I had," The man says "Oh my god," the bartender says, "What do you have?" The man replies "50 cents."
Christmas on the front.
