Cheers: To Jack Miller and Haltom’s Jewelers for sponsoring the Time and Temperature telephone number. A wonderful service for Fort Worth and area residents, especially us old-timers.
Jeers: To the City of Bedford for allowing a brewery next door to a gymnastics gym full of children and a church! You sent the wrong message to the children by saying the almighty dollar is more important than their safety.
Never miss a local story.

Cheers: To J & J. Oyster Bar restaurant on University Drive for a very meaningful gesture of friendship. The owner-manager gave me my dinner gratis. More could be told, but I chose thanking the owner-manager and others there.
Cheers: To the Hurst Recreation and Parks Department for allowing seniors 65 and older to participate in the free seniors’ water time at Chisholm Park’s Lazy River.

Jeers:On three separate occasions I was forced to take immediate evasive action on my motorcycle while traveling to and from church in southwest Fort Worth. I am weary of seeing folks with their faces buried in their smartphones. People wake up,!

Janet and Ed Kasper,
Cheers: To the Fort Worth Police Department. I was driving to work on Aug. 4 and saw officers rendering aid to a dog hit by a car. We appreciate all you do to serve the community but I was particularly impressed by this act of kindness and compassion. Thank you!

Cheers: To the North Richland Hills Library for their Screen Play opportunity to celebrate “The Great Gatsby” in the 1920s style. There was jazz music, refreshments, a short book discussion, and an interactive screening of the 1974 version of the movie. Thanks for a most enjoyable event!

Cheers: To Bert at Texas Health Harris Southwest rehab services for his humor, knowledge, professionalism and encouragement while treating me the past few weeks. He was truly a blessing to both me and my husband. The entire staff in this office was awesome!

Cheers: Our 16-year-old toy poodle, Jenni Lynn, had to be put to rest this summer and the employees at Southside Veterinary Clinic were so compassionate. This is not our vet, and they showed genuine concern for our Jenni. Thank you Dr. Dozier and your entire staff. Blessings to y’all.
Mandy Jane Lindsay,
Cheers: To Mark Fadden for his great article in the Jobs section of the Star-Telegram. The article discussed the disadvantages of multitasking in that it diminishes your productivity, proficiency and mental acuity. Every HR manager should post this on your company bulletin board or company newsletter.
