A star to Jepson petroleum for bringing fuel to my home in Nicholson so quickly when I was empty.

Stars to the organizers of the Joel Plaskett concert. It was a great show.

Stingers to people in apartment buildings who decide to stay up all night and annoy neighbours. Think about others!

Stars to the owners of all those well behaved dogs.

Stars to the bartender who accidently made me a double.

Stingers to the lost drivers going 10 km an hour while they’re looking around. Pull over, figure out where you’re going, then drive.

Stars to the ladies at the Spilli Bean for making that amazing peanut butter pie.

Stingers to the people who don’t clean up the fruit from the trees in their yards. It attracts bears.

Stingers to the people who just don’t let things go.

Stingers to the impatient drivers who go way too fast on the highways.

Stars to the people in Golden who are choosing to be positive, and not dwell on all the negativity that is plaguing the town right now.
