David Marshall and family for organizing an amazing ORYA basketball season. Thank you for the countless volunteer hours you put in for the organization.
Valarie Halvorsen, Summerfield town clerk. Happy 10th anniversary! What an incredible job you do for this town!
Mr. Tres Ward and the Northwest Viking Voices who performed in the MPAs at Wake Forest University. Every Viking choral group earned the top rating of Superior! Well done! And thank you to Carla Ely, pianist.
Tetra Tech for opening the bridge that connects N.C. 65 at U.S. 220. It's been long awaited. Also, a belated thanks for the wall at Ogburn Mill Road.
The teachers at Destination Arts in Oak Ridge for being so encouraging to your students. My daughter loves being a part of your studio. Keep inspiring!
Washington Republicans who spend my tax dollars providing health care for them and their families while taking it from me and mine. While I didn't vote for you, I didn't work against you. That all changes in the next election!
Those who ride the electric shopping carts in stores and put them back without plugging them in. The cart then stops in the back or middle of the store on the next handicapped user.
To my doctor who couldn't recognize a long-time patient in real pain. You could've taken the time to find the problem.
Summerfield Post Office for rude clerks and an unreliable mail carrier. I did not get my NWO delivered again this week. Editor's note: PS Communications, publisher of the Northwest Observer, pays over $1,700 each week in bulk mail postage for mail carriers to deliver our newspaper to every home with an Oak Ridge, Summerfield and Stokesdale mailing address. For those of you with 27310, 27357 and 27358 mailing addresses who do not get your newspaper delivered - and especially if it happens more than occasionally - please contact Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (336) 644-7035 ext. 10 so that we can follow up with the post office and find out why our payment for delivery was deposited but your newspaper wasn't delivered. We won't know you didn't get your newspaper unless you tell us.
Stokesdale Town Council for not trying to clean up Stokesdale! It's looking very trashy and it's embarrassing. Even the park is bad, with signs all broken, no doggie bags, etc. Come on!
The person who honks at my home on Billet Road every day. It is quite the disturbance!
Eagle walk-in clinic (on New Garden Road). I was told it would be a two-hour wait. After two hours I was told it would be another two-hour wait. I left without seeing a doctor. Seems to me the better name is the walk-out clinic.
