This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from the Nelson area
Slugs. To whoever dumped their trash next to the highway going out of Nelson. The world is not your garbage dump! And who do you think is going to pick it up, anyway? Please be more respectful to the earth and your community!
Slugs. To those swimmers who feel their laps are more important than others. Your speed and strength in the pool makes you no more important than those who are there to improve on their weaknesses. Some of us are recovering from illness or injury, some of us are trying to improve our health. We do not deserve to be bullied out of lap lanes, forcing us to end our workout or struggle to do laps in the children’s play, taking a few feet to the face while at it.
SLUGS. To the person dumping their compost in Kokanee Creek Park and up Kokanee Glacier Road. Stop it already. Can you read? The sign reads “Park” - not “dump.”
SLUGS. To the group that used the day use cabin and area in Kokanee Creek Park the weekend of March 3 and 4. You left quite the mess. Perhaps you should return to clean up.
HUGS. To the little boy wearing a poncho at the skating performance on Saturday, you were so determined to skate, and that you did. Way to go!
SLUGS. To the mothers teaching young children how to jay walk, which is illegal by the way. Shame on you.
HUGS. Big Hugs to the wonderful businesses who sponsored the Pink T-Shirt Day Anti Bullying campaign! Annie’s Boutique ~ 1035 The Bridge ~ the Nelson Star ~ EZRock ~ Save On Foods (Nelson) ~ Ric’s Lounge and Grill ~ Nelson and District Credit Union ~ Nelson Home Building Center ~ Integra Tire ~ Mountain FM ~ Sutco Contracting ~ Big Cranium.
Hugs. To the editor of the Nelson Star for always being there, listening and coordinating our community newspaper week after week, despite the obvious challenges (which may not be obvious to some). We are fortunate to have a free community paper!
HUGS. To the pharmacists at Pharmasave. They really know their stuff and readily answer my medication queries. Thanks.
HUGS. Going out to the nurses and staff of Kootenay Lake Hospital. They are a very hard working group. I want to thank them for their patience, tireless work, compassion, professionalism, caring and cheerful smiles as they work. They are truly the source of the divine white light and are truly earth’s angels. This is coming from a very grateful patient who has never been in a hospital in all her 75 years. Thank you for the excellent care that I received during my stay. May the source of the divine white light surround you all and the hospital. Bless you all.
