A star to the children who were trick-or-treating on Selkirk Hill. You were all so polite and there were no candy wrappers left on the ground.

Stars to the business who were handing out Halloween candy last week.

Stingers to the people who wear their outdoor shoes in gyms, making the floor wet for people playing sports.

Stars to the Columbia Valley Credit Union and Kicking Horse Ford for taking the initiative to fundraise for the Golden Women’s Resource Centre.

Stars to Sobey’s and Manager Cam Dawes for their ongoing community spirit and support!

Stingers to whoever it was who smashed pumpkins all over town on Halloween night.

Stars to all the people in Golden who make an effort to do their Christmas shopping locally. The businesses in Golden very much appreciate it.

There was a stinger in last week’s Golden Star accusing a business of costing someone $1,000 on their taxes. The business would like to make it clear that they didn’t cost anyone $1,000.
