hCheers: To an electric delivery company that left yellow tags on several doors in Ryan Place Nov. 13 about how all electricity would be turned off for work from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 14, unexpectedly the coldest day of the fall. A conversation with a supervisor resulted in rescheduling.

Jeers: To those upset about high school students’ homecoming mums. It’s been a Texas high school tradition for years and these kids are just showing off their school spirit. At least they are doing something positive and keeping an ongoing tradition alive.

i Jeers: To the overzealous emergency room security guard at a local hospital. Your insane enforcement of the “two-per-room” rule when no other ER employee cared was ridiculous, making eight of the last 24 hours of the time with our dying mother unnecessarily stressful. Shameful!
