Thumbs Up

to Mark at Mid­state Cash Regis­ters for ex­tremely help­ful cus­tomer ser­vice.

Thumbs Down

to the news­pa­per that’s branded as $1.80, but it scans as $2 at at least one lo­cal su­per­mar­ket.

Thumbs Down

to the hoons and rat­bag driv­ers who left wheelie marks and knocked the posts out of the ground near the new bar­be­cue area on the river at the end Tam­worth Street on the left hand side. It’s a dis­grace and ru­ins it for ev­ery­body else.

Thumbs Up

to the staff from Lit­tle Darling Cafe for the lovely lunch and flow­ers they pro­vided for Joyce and Gary.

Thumbs Down

to the lowlifes that stole all the sprin­klers, hoses and fit­tings from the Thelma Pelosi Me­mo­rial Play­ground at Bal­limore. Ev­ery­thing in the park was do­nated by mem­bers in the com­mu­nity and its un­fair.

Thumbs Up

to a well-or­gan­ised and en­joy­able Christ­mas Twi­light Meet­ing at Dubbo Turf Club last month. The buf­fet meal was de­li­cious and bar staff were very oblig­ing and cour­te­ous. The los­ing ticket draw was also a won­der­ful idea; I even won a prize!

Thumbs Up

to the Chill-rite team who re­sponded to our call for help when our air-con­di­tioner was hav­ing prob­lems. They came to our home within half an hour of our call and promptly fixed the is­sue.

Thumbs Down

to Coun­cil for set­ting the sprin­klers on ovals and parks to go on in the mid­dle of the day. In these hot, windy con­di­tions most of the water is lost to evap­o­ra­tion. The sprin­klers should be set to go on at night to save this pre­cious re­source, es­pe­cially when many other towns are on high water re­stric­tions.

Thumbs Down
