DEC. 19 THUMBS UP AND THUMBS DOWN: Thumbs up to Grand Forks Mounties for the memories

Thanks to Grand Forks RCMP. The tour you gave our children was full of great information and lasting impressions.

This week's edition of Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down.

Thumbs Up: To the person, who found my keys and left them at the Overwaitea so they could check, tag and call me. Thank you so much.

Thumbs Down: Boxes left in the middle of the road, especially when it’s snowing. That’s how accidents happen.

Thumbs Down: Downed computer servers and when technology goes awry.

Thumbs Up: To the RCMP. The tour you gave our children was full of great information and lasting impressions. A memory that will last our family forever.
