Hero & Zero: Generosity from Woody’s and an unaware speedster

by Nikki Silverstein

Hero: For more than 30 years, Woody’s Yogurt Place in Strawberry Village has been scooping up delicious frozen yogurt and ice cream to kids of all ages. Last Sunday, this Best of Marin winner proved that they just keep getting better when they held a major fundraiser to aid folks impacted by the devastating Valley Fire. Every cent taken in was donated to the cause, including the money in the employee tip jar. All those pennies added up to a sweet $5,225. Woody and Brian Woodson, the father-and-son-team that operates Woody’s, were thrilled with the outcome. “The community really came together and this money will be given directly to those that need it,” Brian says. Thank you, Woody’s Yogurt Place, for taking the lead and for your generosity.

Zero: Everyone in Fairfax is familiar with the wonderfully flamboyant gentleman who speeds through town in his vintage black ’57 Studebaker Avanti. Last Friday at Good Earth Natural Foods, he unabashedly rocketed into a blue wheelchair parking slot without displaying a disability placard, launched into the store for his purchases (no limp detected) and then marched back out again, his flagrant parking violation seemingly going unnoticed. JC saw the whole thing go down and “Lucky Lenny” missed a meeting with Fairfax’s finest by seconds. Thanks to JC for writing this Zero. We couldn’t have said it better. Anyone who parks illegally in a disabled space should be ashamed. Lenny, sounds like people have eyes on you and you may not be so lucky the next time.
