JUNE 26 THUMBS UP, THUMBS DOWN: Thumbs down to establishments in Grand Forks that serve chunky hashbrowns

It's a misnomer for eating establishments in Grand Forks to serve chunky potatoes and call them hashbrowns.

Thumbs Down: To eating establishments who serve chunky potatoes and call them hash browns. That’s a misnomer.

Thumbs Up: To the landfill for accepting plastic bags of Hoary Alyssum free of charge.

Thumbs Up: To the extra effort our city workers have put in to the beautification of our city with hanging baskets, flower pots and the restoration of our Welcome to Grand Forks sign at the east side of town.

Thumbs Down: To people who can find something negative in everything.

Thumbs Up: For the recent on-and-off rain and sun. It is fabulous for farmers (no moving irrigation pipes) and the population in general. The grass and veggies grow without our using our water supply. Thanks Mother Nature.

Thumbs Up: Maxine Ruzicka and Michael Strukoff for their years of service to the school district.

Thumbs Up: To organizers and volunteers of the recent triathlon at Christina Lake.

Thumbs Up: To the Grand Forks Rotary Club, for supplying potatoes and chili for triathlon participants.
