Thumbs Down

To the train in Quakertown that goes back and forth, whistles, blows its horn and rings its bell for no reason! There is an old system that does the minimum to warn pedestrians and vehicles of a train coming, unsafe! Making people wait to go to work because someone has to play on the train. Not to mention the tracks wearing out my tires everyday. If we’re not getting public transportation, I say shut it down!

Thumbs Up

To Silverdale Fire Company lead by JC and the men/women who drove by my Perkasie home on August 25 to make some celebration noise for my grandbaby’s first birthday! It was so nice of all of you to take time out of your busy training night to make this happen for us. My family and neighbors loved your presence!!! Thank you so much!

Thumbs Down

To the individual that removed our Support Our Police signs that were placed in our driveway area. You don’t need to agree, but if you’re asking for respect you must afford that to me as well and stay off my property. All lives should be respected and in this time this definitely includes the amazing men and women of our police forces that afford us all safety and security. You should be ashamed! Who will you call in your time of need??? I wonder!

To the kind soul who created the colorful, hand-painted yard signs with uplifting messages placed along Route 212 and Rattlesnake Road in Durham Township. Good vibes whenever I see them!!

Thumbs Down

To the several dozen students who gathered in Ottsville the first week of August. You are putting others health in jeopardy. Parents- ask your children where they were on August 5th.

Thumbs Up

To Penny Power for posting Lost & Found in your community newspaper for free. Many people have been reunited with not only their property, but their beloved pets. And that is priceless.

Thumbs Down

To the driver of the SUV speeding down Quarry Road towards Dublin on August 13 approximately 10:30am. You were speeding so fast, and not paying attention, that you failed to notice me and my two large dogs standing by the side of the road. In an effort to avoid being struck by your car, I had to quickly step backwards and fell into a deep ditch sustaining a leg injury. You never stopped or even slowed down as my dogs and I struggled to get up. Shame on you!

Special shout out to Haycock Fire Department and everyone who coordinated and took the time to make my 100th Birthday drive-through parade on July 18th very special with decorated cars and wonderful signs. Thank you!

Thumbs Down

Why are local roads being needlessly oiled and chipped? Take Passer Road which was recently paved and had painted line markers on it. A nice, smooth road was oiled and chipped. What a waste of taxpayer money! Other roads like Richlandtown Pike have potholes. All this extra money not being used wisely. Wonder who is accountable?

Thumbs Up

To the tireless volunteers and the anonymous contractors who made it possible for Pennridge Little League to play ball. A real Home Run!

To the person who stopped to help me get up off the ground. I was walking my dog and got twisted in the leash and fell. Thank you for your help.

Thumbs Up

To the person who turned in my debit card and credit card to Hellertown Post Office. Also to the worker who held it at the front desk. May your good deed return to you tenfold. Thank you.

Thumbs Down

To the people who eat at the picnic tables behind Quakertown Dairy Queen and leave their trash lying there. If you’re going to use tables belonging to the medical offices nearby, why not also use their nearby dumpsters? Don’t expect the medical staff to don their PPE to clean up after you. And don’t put your skateboards and bikes on the tables. Do you do that at home?

Thumbs Up

To the 57 year old man who helped me when I fell on 5th Street in Perkasie. May your kindness be repaid double. Thank you.
