Thumbs Up

Stop the Hunger Campaign. Hellertown Giant, the community, Second Harvest and volunteers need a big shout out for the support we have been receiving, especially for the last year when COVID-19 hit. Thank you for the generous support that everyone has shown for the Hellertown Area Community Food Bank housed at New Jerusalem Lutheran Church. Our church has been closed for worship and other ministries, but felt it was important to support this cause even if it was done with drive-thru pick up for the safety of all.

Thumbs Up

To our neighbors who are fighting to preserve our environment for future generations.

Thumbs Up

To all our neighborhood dog walkers who do clean up after your dogs. Unfortunately the ”don’ts” get all the attention because they leave the evidence on their neighbors’ lawns. Thank you to all the folks who take their ”doggy bags” home with them instead of dropping them in other peoples’ trash bins. I am sure the municipal public works crew also appreciates not having to empty that from the public waste containers! Responsible pet owners know that there are two ends to a dog and you have to take care of the smelly end to enjoy the cute end.

Thumbs Down

To the dude about a rental for discriminating against me because I have a legal service cat. Shame on you, that’s illegal.

Thumbs Down

To neighbors who put their unwanted junk behind their sheds so they don’t see it. Thanks! Now your neighbors have to look at it. Clean it up or put up a fence, please!

Thumbs Up

To the gentleman who paid for my lunch and my friend’s lunch at the East Penn Diner in Emmaus a couple of weeks ago. We were just sitting there enjoying our delicious brunch, talking about our late husbands. When it was time to leave our waitress informed us both checks had been paid for. Who says chivalry doesn’t exist anymore! God bless you, you kindhearted gentleman.

Thumbs Down

To people who put old clothing and blankets out for trash. There are plenty of donation boxes in the borough. Some people could use it even if it isn’t in perfect condition!

Thumbs Up

A great big ”Thank You” to the lady who paid for our breakfast at Rockhill Filling Station on Saturday, April 3. God bless you for your generosity! It meant so much to our family!

Thumbs Up

Thank you to the Quakertown community for the well organized Easter Egg Hunt. The kids had a lot of fun.

To the people who walk their dogs and let them off leash at the Springtown Cemetery and do not clean up after them. If this continues the cemetery will close to dogs. Please clean up after your dog!

Thumbs Up

To West Rockhill Township Supervisors for working on behalf of the residents to protect our community from big businesses who pollute our environment.

Thumbs Up

To everyone throughout our communities who goes out of their way to protect the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Thumbs Down

To the person suggesting that the new blacktop and concrete in new developments is causing the temps to rise. Your ignorance is embarrassing and to your own point – come fly with me and in 60 seconds I can show you how utterly meaningless another acre of blacktop is. Millions of acres of uninhabited PA land lies there every day hoping someone will make it into a thing of beauty and value. The real problem is many people eschew the open areas because they require effort to live in. You same people then also crave the security of close friends and neighbors but at the same time resent those same people for being that close. Go figure. Look in the mirror before criticizing others.

Thank you so much to the man who helped my family change our truck tire the other night. We saw you helping someone else after us, too. Your kindness is much appreciated.

Thumbs Down

People! You don’t understand that with all the concrete & blacktop that is used in these developments is holding in all the heat from the sun in the summer and that is why it is getting hotter and hotter in the summer. No trees for shade or the wildlife. Is it really worth it? What are we leaving for future generations?

Thumbs Down

To all the avid dog walkers in Upper Saucon Township who do not clean up after their pets. My dog and I are tired of having to avoid the piles that you leave when walking your dog in our neighborhoods, local parks and at the Promenade Shops. Not only are you thoughtless and inconsiderate, but you are breaking the law. Upper Saucon Township has two ordinances that address cleaning up after your pets when walking in public.

Thumbs Up

To the workmen who stopped to check on my husband who fainted in the driveway. He had just donated blood for the first time and was a little woozy! It is comforting to know the folks in this community are looking out
for one another.

Thumbs Up

Thank you to the man who paid for my daughter’s and my breakfast on Thursday, March 18 at John’s Plain & Fancy. She just went through a horrible relationship and couldn’t believe there are still good people out there. You made her cry. It was all good.
Bless you sir.

People of Lehtown area of Lower Milford Township. Somebody has a black cat and it is all over my porch. Wonder why they get hit? Keep letting it run loose. Take care of your pets!

Thumbs Up

To all the nurses at St. Luke’s Hospital, Fountain Hill (7th Floor), who provided excellent care during my hospitalization after Christmas. You all rock! Thanks!

Thumbs Up

To Skippy, who witnessed the accident on January 28th. You took quick action to check on all involved to assure we were not injured. You set out warning triangles to assure our safety and even borrowed a broom from a nearby restaurant to clean debris from the intersection. We appreciate all that you did and are very grateful for your kindness. May God bless you.

Thumbs Up

To the sweet girl on Perkasie Avenue. Thank you for helping an 80-year old shovel her snow. Much appreciated!

Thumbs Down

For not allowing Little League or school baseball teams to play at James Memorial Field. What are teams supposed to do? What happened to community spirit? Why were fields built?

Thumbs Up

To Perkasie Borough for listening to the community. New digital speed signs, prohibiting truck traffic in our neighborhood, and changing traffic light patterns that haven’t changed since the 70’s! A big thank you from South 3rd Street!

Thumbs Up

To the family on South Perkasie Road that lit a very large pine tree over the holidays. You made my pre-dawn trip to work every day brighter. Thank you!

Thumbs Down

To the restaurants that think 25%-50% means to have every table filled. I picked up take-out for the last time. If they can’t follow the rules with COVID who knows what other rules they don’t follow.

Thumbs Up

To the trash collectors that have to put up with all the ignorant people.
Thank you for your service.

Thumbs Up

Thank you to all who supported our January 31 food drive to benefit the Lord’s Pantry in Ottsville. Your care of our neighbors made a difference.
St. Luke’s United Church of Christ Ottsville

Thumbs Down

To the people that have no respect for the trash collectors that need to crawl over your snow piles to get your bags and cans. Dig out a spot for them. Move out of town and see that we shovel out for trash and mail, sidewalks and driveways.

Thumbs Up

To all the Nurses, Doctors, and other Front Line workers who continue doing their jobs in spite of the exhaustion, fears, uncertainty and sometimes ignorance. We may not be standing outside your hospitals as much anymore, or holding up signs. because we, unfortunately, have gotten so ”used to” the world now. Please never think you aren’t appreciated. Thank You

Thumbs Down

To all who passed by when I fell on Park Avenue in Quakertown on Wednesday, February 3rd. At least 15-20 cars drove by and did not stop to help. I am 78 with two knee replacements. I did not have my cell phone. I laid there about 45 minutes. Finally I was able crawl to my car. I would have appreciated if someone would have called 911 for me.

Thumbs Up

To the kind soul in East Rockhill who laid down my two trash bins inside the fence so they wouldn’t blow into the road.

Thumbs Up

To all the owners of outside cats. Thank you for saving our neighborhoods from the mice infestation! We are indebted to you. Keep up the great work!

Thumbs Up

To the anonymous florist who almost a year ago realized that this Covid-19 would decimate his Easter flower business. He so graciously trucked hundreds of flats of gorgeous pansies to the Coopersburg Fire Company lawn where everyone was invited to help themselves to these healthy, beautiful plants for free or for a donation. Dozens of us were thrilled not only to ”adopt” the pansies, but also just to stroll among such color and life. All over our town the pansies created spots of light and hope in the yards and porches of our community. Even in the darkest of days of this past year, we remember the happiness those pansies inspired. We especially remember, with deep gratitude, the generous donor who shared so much beauty with us all. Bless you and thank you.

Thumbs Up

To the kind couple at Dunkin’ Donuts in Coopersburg on Sunday afternoon who paid for our coffee in the drive-thru. Completely unexpected, but such a kind gesture. There are still kind people out there. Also, I completely agree with your bumper sticker by the way. Thank you!

Thumbs Down

How irresponsible and sad to keep your cats outside, never to return, with no shots, half frozen, frost bitten ears! Hungry, scared… I could go on. Shame on you!! Do us all a favor, don’t get pets! Ever! From someone who loves & respects them!

Thumbs Up

To Layla Abusaft for her committed spirit and her will to succeed. A true inspiration to us all. Keep up the great hustle for your Troop 21374. Three Thumbs Up! Thanks

Thumbs Up

To the thoughtful fella who paid for my daughter’s incense at Habitat. You truly lifted our spirits. May your kindness be returned to you many times over. #Grateful

Thumbs Down

To homeowners who run their sump pumps and downspouts 100 feet to run onto neighbor’s property. It’s selfish, inconsiderate and not very neighborly.

Thumbs Down

To the landlord who works around rentals with manager and construction workers with no masks or social distancing. You don’t care about your life and families’ lives. Please stay away from us renters.

Thumbs Up

To the Best Buddies at DeSales University for thinking about the Buddies in your program. For sending the snack box at Halloween and also for the Christmas card. We cannot wait to come back to DeSales and see everyone in person. Thank you from one of your Buddies. Katelyn

Thumbs Up

The park near Hopewell School is great! But why no tennis courts and why is the grading done so poorly allowing water to run across the paved walk at many locations?

Thumbs Up

To the kind and thoughtful lady who paid for my groceries on Thursday, December 31 at the Giant grocery store on South West End Boulevard. Your kindness will always be remembered. Blessings to you. Happy New Year!

A Big Thumbs Up to Norm Clemmer for his Santa Fly-In Flights, PPE deliveries and Constant Angel Flights. Your are an asset to the community and an inspiration to us all.

Thumbs Down

To whoever bought the property and tore down the old 1800 stone farmhouse and cut down every tree on the corner. If you did not want an old stone farmhouse, you should not have bought the property. Enjoy your McMansion.

When are people going to take down their political signs? The election has been over for two months!

Thumbs Up

To the new police ordinances and extra enforcement that we are now experiencing in rural Bedminster Township. Laws are now being enforced as they should be. Clearly making us more safe.

Thumbs Down

To the person who took our grinding wheel on a Singer sewing machine stand that was being used as a lawn ornament. It was taken from Doerr Road, Quakertown on December 22. My dad designed that years ago. He is no longer with us, so you also took a part of him. I hope you have it in your heart to
return it.

Thumbs Up

To the people who understand that flag poles don’t have rights or feelings and are not owed “respect”. They are literally metal poles. Removing them is a right of property ownership, not a sacrilegious offense.

Thumbs Up

To all who clear snow from fire hydrants on their property and help keep our communities safe. Thank you
from Upper Saucon Volunteer Fire Department.

Thumbs Up

A big thank you to the person who paid for mine and my daughter’s purchase Sunday, December 20th at the Dunkin’ Donuts on 663. We were so grateful and even paid it forward. Hope you had a Merry Christmas. Have a safe year.

To everyone that came out to help my son on Saturday evening, December 12th, when he had his accident at the corner of Rosedale Road and Old Bethlehem Pike. I was not able to personally thank you but just know I am so very grateful you were there for him and appreciate how caring your were when he needed someone. Hope you and yours stay safe as you have watched over mine. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

Thumbs Up

A special thank you to the two different gentlemen that paid for our coffee and donuts at the Dunkin’ Donuts in Perkasie. I was driving the mule and carriage. It’s nice to know there are still kind souls out there! It’s certainly pass it on by spreading the holiday spirit. By the way, the Munchkins were for my mule… his favorite! Thank you!!!

Thumbs Up

sincere and heartfelt thank you to the many people who sent me a birthday card for my 90th birthday. I was truly touched and feel blessed by the joy you brought to me. Sam Miller

Thumbs Down

To the new owner (2017) of rental property who tears down flag poles and flags in front of his property because they are in his way. He can’t cut grass around small pole. A flag on the wall was in his way, too. No respect.

To the small group of people exercising in their front yard Saturday morning, December 5.
You put a smile on my face.

To the Trumbauersville Lion’s Club for having the flag pole installed in Veterans Park in Trumbauersville. It’s such a wonderful addition and it’s great to see ”Old Glory” flying so gracefully in our town. Thank you! Also, thank you for all the wonderful things you do for the community and the many donations to the food pantries. You truly are a wonderful organization and are very much appreciated.
