This week's Hugs & Slugs offerings from Nelson area
Hugs. To the amazing people near Six Mile, who not only cleaned up after us grads, but took the time and washed all the forgotten items that were left behind. Thank you so much for your generosity! Many lost and valuable items were reclaimed. We`ll be sure to try and extend the favour back to the community.
SLUGS. To the drivers who did not stop for the woman crossing at the corner of Ward and Vernon. She had the right to cross. She was already in the intersection. Unfortunately two vehicles sped through the intersection and a third was about to when she put up her hand and yelled STOP. Please pay attention to traffic lights and to pedestrians. It could have been a disaster.
HUGS. And a huge THANK YOU to the couple who found my car keys on the rail trail and returned them to me at home!
HUGS. To councillor Paula Kiss who is shining some light on the very real nuisance of light trespass in her council column. For many years our neighbours lights have been intentionally shining into our house, as well as flooding our yard. It is a very real kind of trespass and it does definitely affect our quality of life. Is another bylaw needed to help people in our situation?
HUGS. To our neighbours who are trying to intimidate us by shining lights into our house and yard. You must live a pretty sad life to behave in such a petty way. We hope a hug might brighten your lives and make for a positive change in attitude.
Hugs. To the maintenance crew up at Granite Pointe for all their hard work and having the best greens in the West Kootenay’s all summer! Great job fellas! Thank you! - Avid Golfer
Slugs. To the “taggers” who feel the need to tag EVERYTHING. First off there is good graffiti and then there is your graffiti. You may want to start spell checking what your tagging. The CRYP gang does not exist, it is actually CRIP to clarify get your toughness in check. It does not make you cool nor tough to tag. Your defacing business store fronts and we the taxpayers have to fix your mess. Get your self a canvas and a dictionary learn the basics of graffiti art and grow up.
Hugs. To the conscientious citizen who had the decency, presence of mind, compassion and courage to leave the note on the car in the parking lot of a grocery store that had a dog in it on a hot day with insufficient airflow. Slugs to the owner for leaving it there and then condemning the concerned person’s actions while also excusing their behaviour (and guilt) by, and also expecting the person to know, that their dog had just been at the dog park for an hour where the dog had a swim and that their dog had access to water. Do you really expect someone should know all this? And besides still pure stupidity and lack of care to leave any dog (or human or other animal) in any car for any length of time in the heat of summer!
