After repeated warnings about truckers disobeying truck route signs, the general public is being asked to help.

Merritt's Bylaw Enforcement Officer, Marguerite Kempin, says you can act as extra eyes for the city.

Heavy trucks on city streets are being blamed as one of the causes for wear and tear and potholes created on busy thoroughfares.

Former Merritt Centennials goalie and current Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins netminder Brad Thiessen is the American Hockey League's goaltender of the month for February.

Thiessen went 8-and-2 during the month with a 1.28 goals-against average, a .943 save percentage and three shutouts.

The Merritt Centennials continue with exit interviews for their players today after the season ended on Tuesday with a 6-5 loss to Salmon Arm in Game Four of their playoff series.

Cents coach and G-M Luke Pierce says the future looks bright.

Meanwhile, the Silverbacks advance to face Penticton.

Tonight, Westside hosts Trail with the series tied 2-2.

As the B-C Liberals get to work uniting their caucus, the Fraser-Nicola N-D-P M-L-A calls it "back to the future and a blast from the past."

Harry Lali says he finds it hard to take when Premier designate Christy Clark says she's going to put family first.

Lali added that as Education Minister Clark closed 113 schools, the biggest closure of schools in the history of the country.

Although Merritt missed out on an attempt to secure the funding for a business incubator project last year, doesn't mean efforts aren't continuing this year.

Patrick Flanagan, C-E-O and General Manager of Community Futures Nicola Valley says Merritt was close last time around.

In the initial attempts to establish the incubator program there were upwards of thirty home based businesses that expressed interest in taking part.

The idea is to bring the group of businesses uptown and under one roof to display there products and services collectively.
