Resident Spotlight – Miranda Hutchinson

MirandaI think I first met Miranda in 2003 at where else – Muchalaht Lake!  Kodi was just a baby, sitting and grinning in her stroller. :)

Miranda has been an amazing friend and confidant to both my girls – she has always had a supportive and caring word for them. (It takes a Village, and thank you for being part of M & K’s Village Miranda. xo)

Recently Miranda has undergone a major career change – she is now the Program Coordinator for Nootka Sound RCMP Victim Services!  Congratulations Miranda – you will be terrific!  Her hours are not official yet, but Miranda hopes regular hours will soon be set for Monday to Friday, 12 noon to 4:00pm.  You can reach Victim Services at 250-283-7773.

1. How long have you lived in Gold River? What brought you here?

I have lived here for 30 years.  My beautiful Mother was looking for a quiet and safe place to raise my brother I, and Gold River was that place.

2. What do you do for (paid) work?

I am a custodian for the Village of Gold River but am lucky enough to have the opportunity to do some labour work for them as well.  I have recently been hired as the Nootka Sound Victim Services Program Coordinator through Family Services in Campbell River, and I am a Paramedic for BC Ambulance.  Oh and just a little side pleasure job – I sell EPICURE! :)

3. Please tell us about any volunteer work you do.

I have done a lot of volunteer work throughout the years, but currently I am a Volunteer Fire Fighter and First Responder Instructor, and I also co-manage my daughters hockey team with great help.

4. Please tell us a bit about your family.

This is where I have no problem boasting.  I have a very loving and supportive husband named Chris who encourages me everyday to be successful in whatever I choose to pursue.  Chris works in the logging industry for Western Forest Products and manages to be good at everything he does.  My oldest daughter Kodi (11) is my little hero. She has struggled most of her life with very bad Asthma but it never seems to stop her from using those lungs to warm peoples hearts with her angelic voice.  My youngest daughter Teegan (7) is the most adorable little peanut ever!  She has a way of making most people that she speaks to do whatever she wants.  How could you say no to that face?

5. Do you have any pets?

We do.  Her name is Bryer, she’s a Cocker Spaniel and she is a goof.  If you know Bryer then you know that she has the gift of the wiggle!  She will charge at you full force, barking like crazy but that is her way of saying hello….. then she wiggles.  I know, we are still working on that.

6. What do you like to do for fun?

I love to make music with my daughters.  Hunting, fishing, camping, mountain biking, quading, golfing, playing baseball, playing hockey, running and traveling with my hubby, family and friends. That is just a short list of the things I like to do for fun.

7. What do you wish Gold River had that it doesn’t? Is there anything missing for you?

I wish this town had more people, more jobs, more love, more gardens, more recycling, more volunteers, more more more….There will always be a wish for more, otherwise what’s the point.

8. And just for fun – if you had 1 million dollars to donate to the community in any way you wished – what would you do with the money?

I would donate it to the Fire Department for all the training and safety gear needed, and the rest I would donate to the youth in whatever way would benefit them best.

9. Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I’d like to take this time to say thank you to Gold River. Thank you to the people who DO volunteer, who give to others when in need, who coach and mentor our children, businesses who donate and support, Kyra Fiddler for the Gold River Buzz, always keeping us posted on GR events, and finally thank you everyone for taking the time to read this.

Thank you for being such a good sport Miranda, (actually, I had to bribe her) and participating in the resurrection of the Resident Spotlight!

Better Weather Means Horses on Road


Last week two riders on horses found themselves in a dangerous situation on the Mill Road as a truck drove past them extremely fast.

Even the best trained horses can spook when riders least expect it.  Spring is here and riders will be out more with horses.

Please slow down when horses and riders are on the roads.

Thank you, from the horse riders of Gold River.
