Plenty of slugs from Nelson area this week.

Plenty of slugs this week from the Nelson area

Tagging property is one thing (still sucks) but rocks in nature? I hope when you get caught they spray paint your face!

Hugs. As a visitor from Edmonton in Nelson on April 26 to finalize our wedding plans, hugs to the lady driving the silver Rav4 in the Save-On parking lot who returned our camera filled with photos of our wedding venues. Definitely an act of kindness!


Hugs. To the kind guy that stopped promptly to our rescue. We were obviously struggling to move a very large dresser down steep nasty stairs. We really appreciated your muscles! Much thanks. P.S. We’re planning on moving two bookcases on Saturday! LOL


SLUGS. I walk on the BNR trail almost everyday. In the last few months I’ve noticed more defacing of Mother Nature with tagging. Common! Tagging property is one thing (still sucks) but rocks in nature? I hope when you get caught they spray paint your face!


Slugs. To all the inconsiderate smokers in the clearly marked “No Smoking” amenity areas on Baker Street.


Hugs. To the nice guy who dropped off my red bike on Friday night. You are a great example of Kootenay culture! Thanks again and keep on riding!


Hugs. I would like to send hugs to the person who took my iPhone from the Save-On-Foods bathroom on Sunday. You must feel that it will help you in some way. I would be happy to purchase the phone back from you or if you need the phone more than you need money I would be more than happy to pay you to send me the pictures and videos of my children that are on my phone. I believe it has already been jailbroken, in which case I am sorry for you and I wish you better times.

– Simply Saddened


Hugs. To this awesome community for all the help and support you gave us following the compete loss of our house following a fire in January. We have so many people to thank from volunteer firefighters, friends, neighbours and complete strangers. Without all of you, our situation would have been much more difficult. Please accept our heartfelt thanks. This is an amazing community. Thank you all, from the very grateful Lusted-Astra family.


HUGS. To my daughter, your words and kindness to everyone around you, your sweet smile and hello to strangers make this world a better place to be. I am proud to be your mama. Pete Amo, Siempre, Mummy


SLUGS. To the “random vandal” who stole one of the solar lights given as a gift to light a senior lady’s pathway and stairs into her home. Your thoughtlessness has made it a little less safe for her to move around her property at night and can only be viewed as a cowardly act because it was done at night. If you have a conscience or feel the slightest twinge of remorse — return it at night the way you took it. If you choose not to return it may you stumble in darkness until you realize the error of ways.


HUGS. A big hug to Rick at a downtown hardware store for the help he gave an old lady by putting together her cart! A good turn is never forgotten.


Hugs. To all of the wonderfully hardworking and dedicated volunteers who came out to help breathe new life in the Cottonwood Market site on April 27. There is that old saying “many hands make light work” and that is exactly what happen. With the help of over ten volunteers, the City of Nelson and Dave’s amazing bobcat driving, Cottonwood Market was taken from a rather sad state of affairs to a wonderfully clean and well cared for look. I hope you all feel proud of the work you did and Cottonwood Market is now ready to host another wonderful market season starting on May 18. See you all there!


Hugs. To the Nelson Star for bring the issue of graffiti to the forefront lets work together and stop theses vandals


Slugs. To Omara for spoiling our beautiful landscape with his graffiti. Your not cool your a loser someone knows who you are, do the right things and turn him in.
