Orchids and Onions: Monday, May 20, 2019

May 20, 2019

Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Orchids to everyone who worked so hard to make the second annual Troop Box Convoy successful. Many volunteer hours gave us an awesome event which was enjoyed by the community and its visitors. Our care package program and military families thank everyone.

Onions to entrance to Riviera. Not only is the right turn lane too short, the entrance is not wide enough for trucks with long trailers. And what’s with the separation between the two lanes once you have turned? Poor planning.

Orchids to Mrs. Petersen for being awarded teacher of the month by AZ PTA. You truly are an extremely gifted teacher. Starline is truly blessed to have a teacher of your calibre on their staff!

Onions to the parents that do not follow the rules and use the bus lane at the middle school. Why do you think all of us parents are in the parent line?

Orchids to the LHUSD school board. No matter the difficult decisions, the time you volunteer to make our schools better is appreciated.

Onion to the man who verbally assaulted a woman by saying “I am going to use you as a battering ram,” then asked if she voted for a particular politician. Politics has gotten too violent. Need to work together, not divide.

Orchids to our wonderful American Legion Family volunteers. Without all your support our second annual Troop Box Convoy would not have succeeded. All your efforts were greatly appreciated--Teamwork makes things easier. Our care-package program thrives.

Onions to strangers inquiring of my past. It’s none of your business. Please don’t ask! I came here in a dust storm; the Santa Ana wind. With “Bosco” as my copilot, we made it here by 10. I join the herd of geezers, that Havasu’s best known. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to hit the throne!

Orchids to Corey’s Landscaping. They showed up on time, did a great job of trimming the tree, and an awesome job of cleaning up. Thank you guys! BM

Onions to all the individuals who run the stop sign at Rolling Hills and Thunderbolt, especially before and after school hours when children are present. Shame on you!
