Cheers & Jeers November 16th

Reader’s best and worst of the week

• Cheers to the staff at Columbia House for your wonderful care of my mother for the past 10 months. My father and I will be forever grateful that she was so well looked after for the last months of her life. The kindness and compassion that was shared with us was incredible; people like you make the world a better place!

• A huge Cheers to Greg DuBois, the best neighbor in the Columbia Valley. Cheers for all your help over the years with snow plowing and tree removal. We are very lucky to have you in our little neighborhood!

• Cheers to Shawna and Sonia for running aqua t classes again! Cheers to Parks Canada for use of the Radium pools for this popular local program.

•Jeers to the Black SUV who hit my silver Honda Civic, then took o drunk from the Horsethief Pub after the Burlesque show and left a giant dent in my driver’s side door! Jeers you Jeerhole!

• A huge Cheers to Amber and Heather at KSCU. Their help with an international wire transfer was awesome; not only did their job but went above and beyond for me. Cheers ladies for the great service. I’ve dealt with KSCU for many years and the service has always been excellent.

• A big Cheers to Barb at Selkirk Cellulars for her great knowledge of all the Telus plans and phones. She is a truly valuable employee.

• Cheers to Barb Vinson at Selkirk Cellulars. For all her help and knowledge on Telus, so grateful to have a Telus rep that truly cares about her customers.

• Jeers to the woman at the tness class at Valley Fitness last Tuesday who had to interrupt her workout to cough and blow. Obviously sick, she exposed others to her malady despite her e orts with a tissue.

• Cheers to the Westside Trail administration, who have wisely banned dogs. So many owners think they are alone out there and let their pet o leash, causing a potential hazard. On local trails, we have been charged by territorial dogs who rush at us, barking and with hackles raised. We look forward to walking and biking on the Westside Trail without worrying about what’s coming at us around the bend.

• Cheers to the Phantom Plough person who keeps clearing the snow from our new footpath in Fairmont Hot Springs. You are doing a great job and on behalf of the Fairmont Community Association we wish to show our appreciation. You are making our community safe and walkable this winter.

• A big Jeers to the trades people in the valley. You set your hours to be Monday to Friday; no weekend work. I will now hire trades people from Calgary; pay them travel time; pay their accommodations; and pay for their services. I will do all of this just to ensure that not one more red cent of my income makes it way into your pockets. I am so done with “buy local”.

• Cheers to the Oberti bunch for hanging in there.
