Cheers and Jeers Nov 21

Highs and lows in the Valley this week

A huge Cheers to Adam. A very Gallant young man who was willing to take time off of his daily walk to come to the aid of an old woman who had fallen and was unable to get up. The world would be a nicer place if we had more Adams in it!

Massive Cheers to George Gray for all the years you put up the Christmas display near the highway in Fairmont, for residents and tourists to enjoy. This tradition will be sadly missed. Cheers to the DOI for allowing the display to find a new home in Invermere.

Cheers to Don Cherry for his support of our Veterans.

BIG JEERS to the person who stole my brother’s iPod.

Jeers to all the scrooges, go bah humbug somewhere else. My Christmas decorations make me happy, find something that does the same for you!

Jeers to the torn and tattered Canadian flags throughout the Valley. We can do better.

Jeers to some dog owners. Today I picked up seven dog waste bags at the dog park. They turn up at the beach, pothole, skate park and all over town. If it is too cold for you to hold on to it put the bag in your mitts to keep yourself warm.

Cheers. Adults: please read this to students who were at Laird Remembrance assembly on Friday. We appreciate each of you for your very respectful behavior. Admire the students who so capably led the assembly. Were touched by your truly beautiful wreaths. Lovely choir voices. The practice you put into ukulele playing and singing. Your caring poems. We believe Remembrance Day is not glorifying war. Rather an opportunity for awareness, gratitude and respect for what was; what the world understood at that time. We, the adults, are doing better. We do believe and are hopeful …. our world is in good hands with you as our next generation.

JEERS to the aggressive dogs charging and attacking people on kootenay 3road. It’s a public road. Biking, walking, driving from the north to south is dangerous. Families should be able to be safe on public roads. This is way out of control.

Cheers to Invermere Glass for the repair of our wood stove glass. For being able to do it the same day and the amazingly polite gal out front. You guys are awesome.

Cheers to Steve Audrey and Lisa at The Local View. During this sad and stressful time for me, you went above and beyond with the amazing work you did. A big heartfelt appreciation to you from my family and myself.

Cheers to the Emcon Highway Maintenance crew in the Edgewater area. Great job and special thanks from the folks on George Anderson Rd.

Cheers to people who have their Christmas lights on! They are nice to see now during the darkest part of the year.
