OPINION: Hugs walk away victorious

Slugs didn't have a chance in Nelson this week, losing 5-2.

HUGS: A giant hug to the parents, players and coaches of the Nelson North Stars Pee Wee house team. We stepped up the plate, and pulled off the tournament, even when it seemed like it would be very difficult because of our low numbers. Extra thanks to our tournament chair. I’m so proud of us! I’m proud to be your team manger. We may have come in at #2, but you are all #1 in my books!

 

SLUGS: Slugs to the stupid person who left household garbage on Blewett Road near the bus shelter. Clean up your own mess before animals get into it and scatter it all over.

 

HUGS: Huge hugs and kisses to my beautiful family for nursing me  back to health after my dirt bike crash. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without you. Special hugs to my darling wife for putting up with me.

 

HUGS: To all the organizations and their volunteers who work so hard to make the holidays more enjoyable for those in need. There is such a giving spirit in this community and we should all be proud of the charities who help raise funds, not just now, but all year long.

 

HUGS: Hugs to my children for their excellent report cards and general efforts in school. Knowing you are well-rounded little people makes me a happy and proud mamma.

 

SLUGS: To all those drivers who think they know how to park. Nelson is a tough place to find parking, but it is made increasingly worse by drivers who can’t get their vehicle between the line or park 10 feet away from the curb. People who can’t park should have to take their driving tests all over again.

 

HUGS: Hugs to all the volunteers and organizers who have brightened up our streets. I think the Christmas lights and garland on Baker Street look fantastic and really give a holiday feel to the community. It takes a lot of time and hard work to make it look just right and everyone should be proud of your efforts. Way to go.
