h Cheers: To Curtis Clemonds, Del-Tech Auto Specialists, for the repair estimate on my CTS Cadillac. Curtis spent his time, free of charge, to confirm needed repair was not urgent or as expensive as the estimate from a local dealership. Del-Tech came highly recommended from a friend and I recommend this master mechanic to others.

hCheers: To the Colleyville Fire/EMS team. They were there when needed. And I had a need! EMS took me to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital HEB and with EMS doing the EKG, etc., in the ambulance, the emergency room was ready for me. Great care and concern at Texas Health-HEB. Wonderful and caring medical staff. I am blessed.

hCheers: To the gentleman who gave up his place in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles in Lake Worth. He saw my handicapped daughter and noticed that I would have a very long wait to get helped. We’ll pass on the kindness to others.

Jeers: To America for accepting illegal abandoned kids. They are breaking the law. Accept them and expect more to come. Cheers to California protesters for blocking the buses. When you get them on buses drive them back across the border where they belong.

iJeers: To the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History for not including special exhibits in expensive family membership tickets — $11 each for the Indiana Jones exhibit priced our family out of seeing it. All other museums include special exhibits with membership. We used to love you.

iJeers: To the downtown street cleaner driving his noisy machine up and down the same streets between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. while people are trying to sleep. Five hours! The same streets! And it had rained hard the day before! Next, we will have to replace the worn-out streets.

iJeers: To the Texas Railroad Commission for refusing to allow interviews. The three-panel commission should come to the next public forum with their hands covering their eyes, ears and mouth with a sign reading, “We see no earthquakes, hear no complaints and will speak no evil about the fracking gas industry.”

Cheers & Jeers: Thanks, Phil Collins
