HUGS AND SLUGS: Some residents in the holiday spirit, others aren’t

Also a slug to Nelson gas stations, can’t imagine why

SLUGS: Many huge slugs to the gas station owners in Nelson. Where do you get your fuel prices from? I have travelled to Nakusp in the past three months and regular gas is $1.54 a litre. A substantial difference to your price of $1.69/$1.79. You need to make an adjustment to your numbers.

SLUGS: Big slugs to people yelling obscenities and flipping the bird over parking spots and driving in town. Is it really worth getting all angry? Chill out and enjoy the holidays! It is Christmas time! Nobody wants your anger.

HUGS: To the third floor nurses, doctors, and staff at the Nelson hospital for the dedication and loving care you provide for your patients. Your kindness to our family meant the world to us. Thank you so much!

HUGS: To the young dad who gave up his seat at the Brent Kennedy Christmas concert last week to a grateful grandma. Your parents raised you right. Blessings to you.

SLUGS: Several frozen slugs to government on how they have managing old growth to date. Similar to how they “managed” the southern caribou herd. Discuss. Dither. Delay, until gone. Problem solved!
