GRINS to...


The kind man who jump-started my car at the Oak Ridge Shell station on a cold, rainy Sunday (Oct. 25). Thank you for helping me, and for wearing a mask!


Nate Adkins and his team at Southern Cuts Lawn Care. Always do a great job, and especially grateful for their help with the mess after the storm.


Oak Ridge Town Council and the town's Parks and Rec Board for supporting ORYA Teen Leadership Team's Terror Trail, and also to parks director Terry Lannon, who goes above and beyond to help guide the teens and protect our park's resources.


Summerfield Fire Department for such a fun drive-thru trick-or-treat! Loved the chute with the candy flying through it and landing right in our car, and appreciated all the firefighters who were there wishing the kids a happy Halloween!


Oak Ridge Military Academy. Its presence brings a sense of community with a beautiful campus, the raising of the flag each day, and allowing kids to use the facilities!


Dr. Wendy Camp and her team at Northwest Animal Hospital for their wonderful service when dealing with an ill elderly pet. We were not a client but that did not matter to them, they were there.


Golden Acres neighborhood for helping to pull off an amazing Halloween for our children. Your participation was greatly appreciated and your creativity was not unnoticed. Blessings, thanks, and see you next year!


Stokesdale Fire Department for giving our kids a chance to safely trick-or-treat at the fire station on Halloween. They enjoyed seeing the firefighters, and loved Freddie the fire truck!


Poll workers at Oak Ridge's Town Hall for the long hours they put in while making early voting such a seamless process!


All of our local firefighters who spent many hours clearing downed trees off the roads after the storm hit last Thursday so that emergency vehicles could get through if needed. Our safety is obviously your priority, and you are appreciated!


HorseFriends volunteers and Still Water Farm for hosting such a great Halloween event for kids and their families. My granddaughter loved seeing all the farm animals and feeding the horses. The horse ride was also a big hit!


Oak Ridge Fire Department for having a drive-thru trick-or-treat this year for kids whose lives have been topsy-turvy due to the pandemic.


GRIPES to...


The griper who said our community is being hit hard by COVID-19. The total number of cases for all year is only 2% of the population, and the survival rate is over 98% of that 2%. That's the actual science.


The person in or close to Stonehenge whose fanatic obsession with loud fireworks leads to almost nightly booms after 10 p.m. and often 11 p.m.


Drivers rounding a curve and driving over the double yellow line. Be more aware of approaching drivers who can't see you until seconds before they're right in your path!
