JULY 10 THUMBS UP, THUMBS DOWN: Thumbs down duplicate crossword puzzles

Thumbs down to identical crosswords in two local newspapers.

This week's edition of Thumbs Up

Thumbs Down: A big thumbs down to the weekly Grand Forks Gazette and the Boundary Creek Times for having the identical crossword puzzle.

Thumbs Up: To the residents of Fife Road at Christina Lake (and adjacent roads) who pulled the hoary alyssum along most of the road.

Thumbs Down: To the couple taking food from the food bank box at Buy-Low and putting it in their own bags.

Thumbs Up: To Buy-Low Foods for selling local B.C. cherries at a reasonable price.

Thumbs Down: To the city for NOT having designated and posted RV parking so tourists can stop, stay and spend their dollars in our city.

Thumbs Up: To the City of Grand Forks for finally putting some teeth into its bylaws.

Thumbs Up: Thumbs up to the lady who does not want the recycle bins moved from near the fire hall, but who is willing to go to help clean up the area.  However, once every four to six weeks is not enough. Would she consider twice a week?

Thumbs Up: To people that cause damage to your car but leave their contact information on your windshield and own up to it.

Thumbs Down: People that have their dogs off leash, especially dogs that go after pregnant deer or fawns. Your dog should be on leash when you are off your property.

Thumbs Up: To the Victoria Motel for providing accommodations for the two gentlemen from Cranbrook that taught at the blacksmithing course at Boundary Museum.
