Jeers: To express lanes (aka toll roads). Tired of seeing these signs? Me too! Texas Department of Transportation has been planning Loop 9 around the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1968. Houston and San Antonioare way ahead of us. Wouldn’t it be nice for all those big trucks to go around?

Jeers: To the city of Fort Worth for ticketing a driver with a disability who moved his car three spaces after being parked for two hours. The city website says you must move a vehicle every two hours, but the parking enforcer says you must move to a different meter.

Cheers: To Fort Worth police officer Daniel Segura for trying to ease the tensions of Hispanics with his Facebook post. Jeers to our mayor for trying to distance the city from his comments. Being a sanctuary is something to be proud of and we should stand together.

Cheers: To my son Greg’s coworker, Melissa, (both registered nurses) for her fantastic idea. She buys extra cases of Girl Scout Cookies to keep on hand for surprise gifts, thank-yous, “just because” situations, etc. Benefits both the Girl Scouts and the recipients. I gave my first box today. Thanks, Melissa!
