hCheers: To 75-year-old Earl Newhouse of the “Grumpy Old Men” golf group for shooting a round of 70. This was done by playing the ball down without gimmes. And, yes, Earl did play all 18 holes.

— Joe Blackwell, Bedford

iJeers: To the highway engineers for planting grass along the Chisholm Trail tollway and watering it all day. To waste all that water on grass that has little chance of surviving at this time of year is despicable and hypocritical with homeowners on watering restrictions.

— Colene Drace, Fort Worth

hCheers: To the Bedford Police Department and Chief Gibson for allowing the Bedford Amateur Radio Club to conduct our annual Field Day exercise at their facilities. Special cheers to Officer “Butch” Lindsey for all of his help during this event. In ham radio lingo: “73.”

— Jamie W. Janke, Bedford
