JULY 31 THUMBS UP, THUMBS DOWN: Thumbs down to coupon thieves that raid grocery newspaper stands

Thumbs down to people who grab issues of the West Kootenay Advertiser steal the coupons and put it back on the rack.

This week's Thumbs up

Thumbs Down: To the person who went into Overwaitea and grabbed the weekly West Kootenay Advertiser paper and then put it back on the rack when they were “done” with it.

When I got home I discovered that they took out all of the flyers that should have been inside but I see they left behind some of a coupon digest after of course they picked over their favourite coupons.

They are thoughtless and inconsiderate. Either take the whole paper home with or leave it alone!! Tsk, tsk, tsk!

Thumbs Up: For those people who have enough sense to leave their pets at home especially in this heat! Take them for a car ride some other time! Better yet, bring them home some ice cream!

Thumbs Down: Noisy neighbours who peel in and out of their driveways at all hours of the night.

You’re back and forth like a yo-yo. And then you’re setting your car alarm (beep, beep) and then unlocking your car (beep, beep) over and over and over again. Is this what a bunch of grown people do?

Besides that, do you realize how many very late nights there have been when you’re all outside talking as if the Grand Canyon was separating you? I heard one of the neighbours asking you politely to tone it down.

Please have some consideration for other people instead of disturbing the entire neighbourhood.

Thumbs Up: To Rumours for consistently making the best pizzas in town (in our opinion).

Thumbs Up: To Super-Save Gas for the only gas station in town to not charge for air for your tires.

Thumbs Down: To the bushes planted at the corners of Market Ave. and Third Street. Although beautiful, the bushes are a traffic hazard as they block the view of oncoming traffic from the cross street.

Thumbs Up: To the tasty protein shakes crafted by Brian and company at Flexus. A great way to replenish nutrients after a workout and a way to cool down in the heat.

Thumbs Up: Oliver Glaser and the East Van Scribes RFC for putting on the upcoming rugby tournament in Greenwood this weekend. It’s going to be a good event.

Thumbs Down: To the crows in town that bug  not only wildlife but people on vacation as well.
