Stars and Stingers: Nov. 26

Stars to Alpine Auto for their wonderful service and friendly, dedicated staff.

A ballot box full of stars to the electors of Golden for choosing a cooperative and progressive council, well 6 out of 7 isn’t bad, and saving the Town future embarrassments.

Stars to both of our fire departments and the staff at GSS for their excellent work on Friday during after the school’s chemical spill.

Stingers to whoever stole the picnic table outside the Chamber office. You can keep it for the winter but please bring it back with a fresh coat of paint in the spring.

Stingers to people who are rude to others, especially strangers that they don’t even know.

A Whoville sized stinger to the Grinches among us who have to ruin the holiday season for everyone else. Humbug.

Stars to Alpine Auto for their wonderful service and friendly, dedicated staff.

Stars to mother nature for finally delivering us some long-awaited snow.
