Hugs down slugs 6-4

It was a close race, but compliments beat our complaints again this week.

HUGS: Huge Hugs to Frank Maida and his Nelson Leafs.  How classy Frank is with his comments after the team lost a game to Creston. “Good for the team as it releases the pressure on his players.”  Now that is extreme class.  It is nice to see both Creston and Grand Forks winning games.

 

HUGS: To the Al’s in Nelson. First hug to Al at the leather/rug/jewelry store in the Baker Street mall. You gracefully share your wisdom and creativity with the people of Nelson. You will make my Christmas gifts ones to remember! Second hug to my former neighbour, Al, on Victoria street. You too have shared much wisdom with me. I look forward to our run-ins on Baker Street.

 

SLUGS: To the idiot bike rider who in 10 minutes with black skid marks defaced our world class skate park. What a senseless act. – A long time park supporter

 

HUGS: Nice warm hugs to those business people who don’t plug meters and who don’t monopolize parking downtown during holiday shopping season. Good thinking.

 

SLUGS: I’m sorry, but this has to be said. Slugs to all of those businesses who insist on forcing the Christmas spirit upon us by playing that annoying Christmas music all day long. Your employees must go insane, because I know I can only stand it for a minute or two. Personally, I like Christmas carols, but to have to hear it all day in every place you go is a holiday tradition I’d like to see disappear.

 

HUGS: Let me give a big hug to the man that helped me put my garbage bag back together. Nobody likes garbage at the best of times, but when my bag ripped open while putting it out on the curb, this individual took the time to help grab some of the items blowing away in the wind. He was very kind. – A grateful senior.

 

HUGS: Hugs to everyone who attended the candlelight vigil promoting non-violence last week. It was a great event.

 

SLUGS: To whoever is responsible for all the garbage lining the stairs on Hall Street beside the IODE park. Find a dumpster.

 

HUGS: I’d like to give hugs out to everyone who has donated money to the many worthwhile charities that are in such desperate need of help, especially this time of year. Groups like the Salvation Army, Our Daily Bread and so many others do a great deal of work in our community, but it is only made possible thanks to the donations from Nelson residents. You should all pat yourselves on the back for a job well done and keep up the good work.

 

SLUGS: Slimy slugs goes out to Interior Health and anyone else involved in the decision to reduce the emergency room service in Kaslo. It’s a disgrace that this community does not receive the same level of medical care as others in BC. Other small communities better take note, because you can bet your ERs will be the next ones impacted. It’s all about money.
