GRINS and GRIPES

GRINS to...


The Village Shell station in Oak Ridge for not gouging customers on gas prices. I will always buy gas here.


Clayton at Bojangles' (Oak Ridge). Your outstanding customer service makes my family want to come back. Our order was correct (that's a first) and you did it with a genuine smile on your face. We appreciate people like you in our community.


Tammy and Eric Overcash of Mailboxes & More for their outstanding customer service and compassionate generosity when shipping a package to Texas flood victims.


Annette Joyce's article, "Charlie & Me," in last week's paper. My pup, Cody, has also lost unwanted pounds while on the "string bean diet." Worked like a charm - his belly feels full while eating less fat! A win-win diet plan.


The heroes in Houston who risked their own safety and comfort to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.


Page Parker for her very well-written, intimate account (in last week's Northwest Observer) of the pain her family has endured since their loved one was murdered 21 years ago.


GRIPES to...


Oak Ridge Planning and Zoning Board and Town Council for voting to approve the rezoning of land between Whitaker Estates (off Oak Ridge Road) and ORMA. Our once quiet neighborhood has turned into yet another development for the almighty dollar.


NCDOT for waiting until school started back to close Linville Road while constructing a new bridge. This project was supposed to be done over the summer.


Bank of Oak Ridge and those (latest and greatest) ITMs. Send them back to where they came from!


The price-gouging station in Stokesdale for selling gas at $2.75 a gallon when the Shell station in Oak Ridge sold it for $2.45 a gallon.


Last week's griper who complained about Target shoppers being rude. If you neither work nor shop there yourself, how could you know any shopper was rude to an employee?


NCDOT for its decision to close Linville Road at the same time the school year started. Who is responsible for the timing? Was the issue behind the road closure truly urgent? Why not during the summer? Think next time!


Oak Ridge youth football coaches who leave the best players in the entire game while the other team can't even gain a yard. You give Oak Ridge a bad name.


People who walk their male dogs through neighborhoods and think it is OK for their dogs to lift their legs on mailboxes and trash cans. It is not OK.


Our neighbor off Whitaker Drive in Summerfield who owns two big dogs that harass every person who passes in front of their house. It's scary to have dogs running towards us every time we walk past. Have your dogs trained!
