GRINS and GRIPES

GRINS to...


Summerfield Postmaster Linwood Thompson and worker Donna Handy for their assistance with my package when I came into the post office right before closing. Linwood even helped me tape my package, as it was difficult to close!


Dr. Ballard of Summerfield Vet who uses both common sense and great kindness when dealing with his patients and their owners!


The "good Samaritans" who appeared like guardian angels and pushed my car to the side of the road when it stalled in the middle of N.C. 150. God bless both of you.


Amy Loflin and Summit Church in Oak Ridge for their desire to partner with Stokesdale Parks and Rec. As part of their serve program, they will donate money for every run the Northwest Vikings score.


Linda Southard and other members of Summerfield Historic Committee for facilitating Summerfield's first historic marker dedication at Laughlin School. It was a lovely ceremony!


Alison Kerber of Oak Ridge for running and completing the Rome Marathon on April 2 and the Paris Marathon on April 9 - not bad for a senior citizen!


John Blust for promoting "truth in advertising" and full disclosure in our elections by requiring candidates disclose their basic political philosophy (liberal or conservative). Of course Democrats oppose it - they know they'll get fewer votes.


Danielle Elliott for her tireless dedication as PTA president of Summerfield Elementary School. Thanks for all you do to help make SES the best. You are appreciated!


GRIPES to...


The owners of the house in Stonehenge with two outside beagles who constantly bark and are a nuisance to the neighborhood. Please train your dogs so others can enjoy time outside! Would you want to listen to nonstop barking?


Whoever from Guilford County Schools provided information that Colfax Elementary was built in 1955; your records are way off!


Editor's note: We apologize for passing along incorrect information in our semi-annual atHome publication and we are working to get the correct dates for when Colfax Elementary was built.


Customers who come into the very few stores we have in Oak Ridge in a bad mood and take it out on the employees. That ruins their day, too, and they are already working hard for your needs!


The reader who grinned about the leadership at Northern Middle School; the school is falling apart and I am afraid for my child to even attend there anymore.


The Town of Summerfield for not requiring developers to build moderately priced housing within the current low-density zoning. High profits for developers should not take priority.


Pet owners who do not clean up after your animals. We see you and we do not appreciate it.


My mail carrier in Stokesdale who left a package sitting in the rain on April 2 instead of placing it 2 feet inside the carport where it would have stayed dry.


Whoever illegally dumped a birch tree (cut-up trunk, limbs, brush) in the churchyard of the historic Hillsdale Primitive Baptist Church on Scalesville Road in Summerfield. Your lack of respect has no bounds.


People who ride bicycles on N.C. 150 and all the other connecting roads. You are a danger to yourself and everyone else who travels these roads. Find a park or greenway!
