Cheers: And thanks to the owner, managers and staff at the 8-Ball Billiards and Bar on Jacksboro Highway for conducting a memorial and a fundraiser honoring Daryl Mills, who was killed in a construction accident, and benefiting Daryl’s 15-year-old daughter, Emily. Cheers also to scores of folks who attended.

— Jim “Pappy” Evans,

Fort Worth

Jeers: To the anti-snake crowd. Snakes are useful creatures. Sure some species are dangerous and poisonous, Copperheads in particular, but they tend to grow up to be Republican governors, lieutenant governors, state attorneys general and televangelists.

— Paul R. Schattman, Arlington

Cheers: To the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau for the conventions and millions of dollars they bring to our city by their outstanding personalities and services provided the attendees.

— Corrine Jacobson, Fort Worth
