Every weekend Q101 will revisit the most talked-about stories of the week in Merritt and bring them to you all in one place. As well as my favourite story of the week.
This week Merritt was buzzing about a new amphitheatre at NVIT, a local student winning big, and some early budget discussions at City Hall.
My favourite article of the week was a sit down with Merritt Centennial defenceman Brophy Dunne.

Five Good Minutes with Brophy Dunne
If you look at the stats sheet Brophy still has a 0 in the goal’s column, but you don’t have to tell him that…his parents have it covered.
“I’m waiting for it. I’ve talked with my parents and they’re making fun of me for not scoring,” joked Brophy.
