A star to John Mirehouse for being the first to donate a deer hide to GSS Kikino Room! And a reminder to Golden we are still accepting donations.

Stars to the couple who donated turkeys to the food bank for Thanksgiving.

Stingers to the businesses in town that open only when they choose. This does nothing to grow our town economy.

Stars to Tom Ford of VP Waste Management. He stopped his truck during his route to talk to my children. He also got out to let my two-year-old sit in it. This meant a lot to us, as two-year-old Benjamin wants to be a garbage truck when he grows up.

Stingers to the people who start rumours or tell lies. If you hear something about someone consider telling it to their face before you spread it.

Stingers to people who smash beer bottles in the middle of the road

Stars to the person who turned in my purse to the RCMP. A heartfelt thank you!

Stars to Caralyn for the great Thanksgiving dinner.

Stars to the Rockets for their play as of late.

A stinger to the people who can’t find the fun in anything.
