Cheers: To the Ridglea Theater. I now live in Arizona. The Ridglea Theater was my first job when I was 16 (behind the concession stand), and my sister's first job before me when she was 16. That was 36 years ago for me (46 for my sister). This is exciting!-- Pam Ridge Sabet, Goodyear, Ariz.Jeers: To Chick-fil-A corporation for changing the 2013 cow calendar. Now you get a card that you must register. (No coupons!) Only one card per e-mail address. Offers only good per month or they expire. What about families? Bad mooove, cows!-- Johanna Van Syckle, Fort WorthCheers: To the guys at Powdertek Inc. in Haltom City for caring for my antique iron bed frame while they sandblasted the rust away, then powder-coated the most beautiful hammered copper color onto the iron. At $100 cheaper than the first six companies I checked with, they were the best value.-- Terry Matherly, WeatherfordJeers: To KTXA/Channel 21 for putting its "Must be 21" logo on the screen numerous times during the Rangers baseball games. It was distracting, annoying and sometimes blocked plays in progress. We know what channel we're watching and don't need a constant reminder.-- Nancy Groze, SantoJeers: To the neighbors who ruined Sept. 15 with their loud backyard party music and PA system. You're too cheap to rent a place, so my evening is ruined. Real neighborly. Double jeers to Haltom City police for letting them get away with it.-- April Horton, Haltom CityJeers: To the Star-Telegram. Now that TCU is in the Big 12, you can't even mention the Mountain West Conference or put their standings in the paper? We aren't just TCU fans out here, we are also college football fans and would like to see full coverage of college football.-- Bradley Wilson, WeatherfordCheers: To the individual who found my wallet at Naval Air Station Fort Worth on Sept. 12 and immediately turned it in to the security police. Your honesty and quick action are sincerely appreciated.-- Jack Harter, Fort WorthJeers: To the Star-Telegram sports department for refusing to print Cowboys/Seahawks rosters on game day. Do you really think that is not an important piece of information?-- Mark Malone, North Richland HillsCheers: To the kind person who found my driver's license at River Legacy Parks and then went to the trouble of finding my house and placing it in my mailbox. I am so grateful!-- Kathy Black, ArlingtonJeers: To the driver of the city bus who cut in front of us without warning at about 8:50 a.m. Sept. 13 as we were slowly moving forward in the line waiting to cross the Hulen Street bridge, missing our right front bumper by only inches. Very irresponsible and dangerous.-- Sara Williams, Fort WorthCheers: To Kelly Johnson, who continues to put the newspaper on several neighbors' porches. Also to Mary Lou Reyero, Jan Avett, Guadalupe Barreto, Mary Lou Del Rio and my three children, who are very dependable for transportation. And to Cindy Hogue.-- Helen Martinez, Haltom CityJeers: To a trendy Mexican restaurant. My girlfriend and I recently went to have dinner, and the waiter thought speaking on a cellphone while waiting our table was appropriate behavior. What has happened to professionalism in the workplace? Get off your phone and do your job.-- Michael Dustin Wood, Fort WorthCheers: To Sewell Infiniti on Bryant Irvin Road for coming to my rescue. My battery was dead on my keyless remote, and I was locked out of my car. They came within 30 minutes with a spare key and a battery. No charge. -- Roberta Gerrick, Fort Worth Cheers: To Courtney in the framing department at Michaels on Overton Ridge Boulevard. My matting request pushed the envelope. However, Courtney met the challenge with a professional product.-- Susan Walker, AzleCheers: To Sunia, James and the rest of the Trinity High School alumni football team for working to guide this old rookie in the right direction. Your camaraderie and the class you showed in the face of our opponent were priceless. -- Bill Garretson, Watauga Jeers: To the candidates who have not removed their campaign signs in Northeast Tarrant County. Do you think city governments are responsible for removing your trash?-- Howard Kimbrough, ColleyvilleCheers: To Kent Keish with DUCTZ of DFW North for his honesty. After a new outside AC unit installation, my ceiling filters started turning black. After a free inspection, he said that my air ducts and evaporator coil were clean. He did not try to sell me unnecessary services.-- Terri Estes, North Richland HillsCheers: To Lorene, Gary and crew from North Richland Hills Parks and Recreation for being extra helpful when I reported the loss of my wedding ring at Tipps Canine Hollow Dog Park. And cheers to Jeff Church, the dog park human who called right away when he found my ring!-- Therese Adamiec, North Richland HillsCheers: To the Star-Telegram for the super picture of Ron Washington and Michael Young (my favorite Ranger) in Cheers and Jeers Sept. 15.-- Joy Watkins, ArlingtonJeers: To the owner/employee of a college gift shop who shouted to the heavens (i.e. a full store) how she hated Ohio State University, my beloved alma mater. Also, jeers to the person who stole my Ohio State flag out of my front yard last fall.-- Polly Woods, Fort WorthJeers: To people who throw trash out on Sandy Lane and all over town. Fort Worth is a beautiful town. Why do you want to trash it? The city has garbage pickup.-- J. N. Hester, Fort WorthJeers: To the individuals who got out of their cars and requested the North Richland Hills police stop the Birdville High School homecoming parade so they could get through. Had you read the signs on Mid-Cities Boulevard that were there for three weeks prior, you would've known to alter your route.-- Shannon James, North Richland HillsCheers: To the late Steve Sabol of NFL Films. Three cheers, in fact, for the difference he made in the lives of so many people who wouldn't have been able to enjoy watching the game of football. Sabol will surely be missed.-- A.J. Chilson, PrincetonCheers: To the angel who gave us a $40 gift certificate at Ginger Brown's. It was my birthday, so it was an extra special blessing. Everyone really enjoyed the free meal. Thanks!-- Jaunita White, Fort WorthCheers: To the Fort Worth Public Works Department. They responded the same day they were notified and removed a limb hanging in the road that presented a hazard to motorists. Thanks for the prompt action! -- Cyndy Efferson, Fort Worth Jeers: To TCU for not allowing us to bring stadium seats and/or cushions to football games. Reason? Too many complaints of stadium seats and/or fans taking up too much room. C'mon. We've only been going to those games for more than 40 years -- good seasons and bad.-- Maureen and Gary Force, Fort WorthCheers: To our landlord, Bob Cross. We have just completed a remodel on our business, and Bob went above and beyond the call of duty. He is a great friend, but he is an even better person. Thanks, Bob, for everything you do for us!-- Ray Sefcik Jr., WeatherfordCheers: To Lactations Boutique in Fort Worth. Your expertise saved my daughter's $400 breast pump with a $5 part. And thank you for providing a clean, private place for her to pump.-- Agnes Buhr, Fort WorthCheers: To Harold at the Denny's on Esters Road near Texas 114 in Irving. I stopped by for breakfast early on a Friday morning and was very impressed with his speed and attentiveness. He was the lone waiter in the place and amazed me with his pace. Great job!-- Jay Johnson, ArlingtonCheers: To Paul Padilla, owner of North Texas Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning. He did an outstanding job replacing our AC. From start to finish, his work ethic proves he's in it to win it. Polite, honest, knowledgeable, fair and fast.-- Sandra L. Hamilton, Fort Worth
