GRINS and GRIPES

GRINS to...


Republic Services. People should not complain. They arrive whether it's extremely hot or extremely cold. If cans are tipped over by wildlife, wind or dogs, they pick it up. As a Summerfield resident, I am thankful for their service!


Mike Fitzgerald, one of the managers at Lowes Foods in Oak Ridge, for remembering I had lost my Lowes stamp book. He found/saved it for two weeks until he saw me in the store and could return it to me.


Stokesdale citizens for giving 158 boxes of food, milk, bread and a hot breakfast for those in need.


Joseph Kennedy III for his State of the Union rebuttal. Now there was an Oscar-worthy performance... with a straight face.


The Northwest Observer for the article clarifying how the Summerfield retreat agenda is properly set. Now that she knows she was wrong, wonder if the mayor will apologize for her "misunderstanding" and all the drama. #Summerfieldiscrying.


Jim and Paula Scifres for their heartfelt article in memory of Dr. Herb Appenzeller. Although I did not know him personally, I am inspired by his example. Let's all love our neighbors and make Summerfield a better place.


The Town of Summerfield. Having lived here for 14 years, I have always gotten a kick out of the antics at town council meetings. With the newest members, you are the best soap opera going. Keep electing these drama queens!


Helen Ledford's delightful article about pot likker. As a Northern transplant, I so enjoy reading articles about honest-to-goodness Southern traditions. Stories like this are one reason I enjoy reading the Northwest Observer so much.


The Town of Summerfield for providing comedic relief to the rest of northwest Guilford County.


Northwest Observer for publishing Jim Scifres' very touching tribute to Herb Appenzeller. Dr. Appenzeller was a truly humble hero. If we only had more like him this world would be a better place.


GRIPES to...


The person who left their rearview mirror for me to clean up and a mailbox to fix after hitting it on Witty Road. There is a curve there - you might want to slow down!


Summerfield mayor claiming, "I have lots of other wonderful things I do with my time." Please, go do them, and let Summerfield heal. But first, pay us taxpayers back the $1,248.87 for the failed annual retreat, because of you.


Stokesdale. Really glad we have a fine upstanding store like Down 420 Lane for my kids to ask questions and learn about. A head shop. A handful of stores, and this is what our town is offering to North Carolina?


Our new mayor (in Summerfield) and her playground pals. You just can't take your ball and go home. It's called a democracy. "I'm the boss" - very Trumpian of you!


Nancy Pelosi for calling the increase I will receive in my checks due to President Trump and the Republicans' tax reform "crumbs." I am enjoying my "crumbs!" Thank you, President Trump, for making America great again.


Summerfield Mayor Gail Dunham, who consistently demonstrates an inflated sense of self. Winning an election by 19 votes (0.17 percent of the population) does not give one the "authority" to behave like a dictator.


The Democrats who revealed their true colors during President Trump's SOTU address. You have shown why it is so hard to get anything done.


The griper with the fake MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat. All mine say "Made in the USA!"


The newly installed members of Summerfield's governing body. What a circus!


Mayor Gail Dunham, for saying "I am an incredible person...You wouldn't believe what I accomplish." That sounds just like another elected official with an inflated ego. Gail, how big are your hands?


The driver of the black suburban on U.S. 158 Friday evening who was flashing your lights and tailgating. You could have caused these young teenage drivers to have an accident. Also, you were speeding and lucky a cop didn't stop you.


The parents boozing it up in the Beer Den at Lowes Foods last Thursday night. While you enjoyed your drinks, everyone who was there to grocery shop had to deal with your kids running wild throughout the store!


Summerfield Post Office for mail not being routed correctly and sometimes being delivered two days late. Get it right, people!


Summerfield Mayor Dunham and council members Pegram and Rotruck. We are moving to Summerfield soon, and can promise that you won't receive our vote for re-election. You three are an embarrassment.
