Overheard and Shout Outs: April 29, 2016


Are there tid-bits of conversations you’ve heard while standing in line at the grocery store, serving a table, or walking down the sidewalk that make you smile, cringe or laugh out loud?


“Everything happens to me in Trader Joe’s. It must be the hummus.”


“Better go with the skim. I put on my summer pants today.”


“Mailmen get all the best rummage sales!”


“I don’t smell anything. I’ve just been drunk this whole time sitting in this spot.”


“When they create a translator for flip phones, I’ll let you know.”


“Get a dog. They don’t care how white your teeth are.”


“If you don’t know what you’re doing, look it up on the internet so we don’t know how stupid you are.”



Is there someone or something that deserves a pat on the back or a slap on the wrist?


I would like to give a shoutout to Ginny, Bill and Nyla at the Door County Historical Museum for a wonderful and interesting guided walk through Door County history earlier this week. – Alyssa Skiba


A pat on the back to the many volunteers who helped plant trees, clean up garbage, and share knowledge about environmental stewardship during Earth Week in Door County.


A shoutout to Betty Curzon at the Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Library for her many years of service and friendship to the Door County community. Best wishes for your retirement!


A shout out to Mike Scoville, who, for more years than I know, has been the fearless leader of Gibraltar 7th and 8th graders on their class trip to Washington, D.C. From the planning and fundraising to making sure everyone arrives home safely, Mr. Scoville does it all. You have it down to science and it does not go unnoticed!


I’d like to give a shoutout to Halls cough drops for the words of encouragement printed on their wrappers, especially the “Get back in there champ!” that I unveiled during one of the worst coughing fits I’ve ever had. I really needed that.
