Charlotte TV scroller service queried

  • Sep. 10, 2007 6:00 a.m.

Queen Charlotte councillor Eric Ross says he would like to see the TV scroller service back up and running. At the Sept. 4 council meeting he said the south end used to have a service, similar to the one in Masset, where community events and information would scroll across the television screen.Winston Shave, operations manager at Misty Islands TV Society, says Channel 10 used to be used for that purpose, but the old computer and software no longer work.He says directors have been discussing starting the service up again, but no decisions have been made.”It’s good to hear that people want the scroller back,” he says.He says the society is non-profit, so any support from the community, especially the village, would be appreciated. Councillor Ross says bylaws and other information could be put on the screen and that way people could access village news from their own homes.
