GRINS to...

Oak Ridge Presbyterian Youth group for organizing a great event and raising money for the local nonprofit Backpack Beginnings. Way to serve the community!

The kind, honest person who found my debit card in the parking lot of CVS and brought it into the store. You saved me from fear of fraud and the hassle of getting a new one. God bless you.

The parents and staff of Stokesdale Elementary for your help in funding the awesome new basketball goals. And, as always, shout-out to Mr. Stys for engaging with the kids on the court!

Northwest Guilford Farmers and Specialty Market for supporting local farmers and for building community. We are excited for May!

Towns of Oak Ridge and Stokesdale for creating crosswalk signs to help keep our neighborhoods off Haw River Road safe. Wish the crosswalk near Charles Place was closer to the entrance of the neighborhood where crossing occurs.

Dr. Best of Best Impressions in Greensboro. You fixed what didn't work the first time without additional charge - not even for the office visit. You sure are the best!

TireMax in Stokesdale. You couldn't fix the problem with my Mercedes, but even after the labor involved to find that out, you didn't charge me anything. I'm so glad I bought my tires from you earlier this year.

GRIPES to...

Town of Oak Ridge for having the ability to decorate and prune the area around the N.C. 150 "Welcome" sign, yet cannot replace one simple light bulb so visitors can see it at night. It's a bulb. It has power. Xmas lights worked...

The inappropriate knee-jerk reaction of people who clamor for reducing speed limits even when speed is not an issue. The driver in the Halloween tragedy near Linville Road was driving 15mph below the limit. Speed limits are already too low.

John Doggett for voting in favor of David Couch's text amendment request. I am sorry I helped to vote him in. He will not get my vote again.

Dog parents at Oak Ridge Park. Pick up your dog's poo, for cryin' out loud! I saw at least 10 piles between the parking lot and the dog park. Nasty. If you can't be responsible, leave the dog home!

Developers creating urban living in rural areas. Build what people want - homes/land to complement the area. Create affordable living where it already exists, by restoration, so people are happy with what they can afford. Your development will ruin home values.
