Stars and Stingers: Apr. 17

Stingers to people who don’t pay their bills. And double stingers to people who make demands when they have outstanding bills.

  • Apr. 17, 2013 3:00 p.m.

Stars to Nicki Jo for reminding me about Pro D day.

Stars to Colleen, Donna Lea, and any other volunteers working hard to get an interesting exhibit ready at the museum.

Stingers to the people who are riding the non motorized Rotary trails with their quads and ATVs.  Not only are they ripping up the trails but they are a danger to those people who are out walking.

Stingers to fish for not biting down on my hook.

Stars to Charlene, John and the Golden Dollar Store for the beautiful renovation to their heritage building in the heart of Golden. Another reason to shop local.

Stingers to the person who paid for their entire purchase in pennies, nickels and dimes at 7-Eleven when there was a long lineup behind you.

Stars to the Golden Fire Department for taking my kids on a ride on the fire truck. They loved it.

Stars to Robin for not beating me as badly as she could have at pool.

Stingers to people in apartment buildings who think it’s OK to have loud, late parties on week nights.

Stingers to people who don’t pay their bills. And double stingers to people who make demands when they have outstanding bills.
