Not to take anything away from the females, because they are just as great, but I was impressed recently to see an integration (if not completely full) of male sales persons at the checkout. They are polite, helpful and friendly young gentlemen. Way to go Vos’ and keep up the great work gentlemen. You will do your community proud when you eventually venture out as adults and have these worthy people skills. From a female shopper (who is unbiased). THUMBS DOWN - A reader writes, I would like to give a thumbs down to the group of people that park at the back of Tim Hortons and hang out while drinking their coffee. Instead of taking their empty coffee cups to a garbage can they just throw them on the ground and leave them to blow around in the wind causing a mess in the parking lot and surrounding area! It is such a shame that these people can’t pick up the mess rather than leave it for others to do. Act like a grown up and pick up your own mess! THUMBS UP – A huge thumbs up to the staff of S. A. Cawker who brought their amazing junior choir to sing at the G-Moms African Dinner. A huge shout out to all of the talented, dedicated members of this awesome group of singers. Then we give an even bigger thumbs up to the wonderful parents who drove their students to Port Perry Villa during the dinner hour. You brought great joy to many. THUMBS DOWN - to people who move to the country, buy a house next to a farm that has been there for over 100 years and then submit anonymous complaints about basic things you would expect near a farm such as livestock noise, smells, flies etc. Perhaps a home in a subdivision in Oshawa or Whitby would have been a better choice. THUMBS UP - Another resident wants to thank the person or persons that picked up after their dog and at the same time give them a THUMBS DOWN for throwing the bag on their lawn. THUMBS DOWN - another comment dated October 21. I would like to say thumbs down to whoever looks after the street lights in Port Perry. My husband and I walk around town most nights after dinner. Our route is Simcoe St. to Queen St. down to Water St. to Carnegie and into Apple Valley. We counted twelve lights burned out. Let’s get Port Perry lit up for safe walking!
