Cheers: To Martin Thompson & Son Funeral Home. They provided exemplary services, care and compassion when my wife passed away recently. I highly recommend them.
Billy Norris, Fort Worth
Jeers: To a Keller restaurant for upscale locavores that lost my reservation for a momentous occasion. The laconic owner asked me if I talked to a “real person” when I made the reservation. Huh? He then said, without any regret, that he might have a table in an hour.
Arnold Benson, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Colleyville’s wonderful and dedicated Police, Fire and Public Works personnel. We are blessed to live in such a unique city with such devoted caregivers.
Roland and Ann Kelley, Colleyville
Cheers: To the Stock Show and Rodeo. Not only is the rodeo a great family outing, but the participants are proud to show their faith in God and their patriotism to our flag and country. With all the turmoil going on today, that is a true joy to witness.
Ann Stewart, Fort Worth
Jeers: To the DFW Airport board for approving the clear-cutting of hundreds of acres of wooded forests from the southeastern end of the airport runways to the northern side of Texas 183. More new warehouses in the flight path don’t make sense, so what is the reason for this wildlife-displacing destruction?
Donald Yandell, Haslet
Cheers: To those who planned Genesis United Methodist Church’s women’s retreat in Granbury. It was an excellent experience.
Cheers: To Mary Alice Altorfer for her letter (“A True Patriot Does His Duty,” Feb. 9). Much gratitude to her for her finely crafted words. Let’s meet her for lunch in New Braunfels. Surely that would be well worth the trip from Fort Worth.
Anne M. Sanders, Fort Worth
Jeers: For small coverage of a Richardson officer murdered protecting the public compared to a large article and photo about a person videotaping officers trying to protect the public. Very disrespectful and inappropriate.
Skip Humphrey, Arlington
Cheers: To the baseball writers, who have FINALLY come out of hibernation.
Gene Riley, Watauga
Cheers: To the doctors, nurses and support staff at Medical City North Hills for their kindness and caring attitude during my stay after having open heart surgery over the Christmas holidays We greatly appreciate all they did to make our hospital stay as comfortable as possible.
Michael and Vicki Logan, Richland Hills
Cheers: To Cynthia Allen for her fine article about Fort Worth’s Stock Show, which is one of many things that makes the city unique and a great place to live.
Frank H. Sherwood, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Curtis Page, 2010 graduate of Arlington Heights! He graduated from U.S. Air Force basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. He serves his country and family with pride, discipline and focus.
Leigh Larson, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the Burleson firefighters and MedStar EMTs who came so quickly when I dialed 911 after my husband fell on Jan. 6 and 22 and to everyone at Texas Health Harris, Texas Health Huguley, and Huguley Rehab Center who cared for him.
Doris Raymond, Burleson
Cheers: For the coverage of the police officer killed last week in the line of duty. While I sympathize with everyone for his loss, I ask where the sympathy is for the other young man who was killed by the same person. How is his family coping? Jeers to the television stations and their newscasts for not even mentioning this young man, except to give his name.
Carolyn Godsey, Joshua
Cheers: To the friends and staff of the North Richland Hills Library for its “Behind the Book Author Events.” Three authors have recently released new books: Melanie Benjamin (“The Girls in the Picture”), Lea Berman ("Treating People Well") and Lisa Gardner ("Look for Me"). What a pleasure to be with these talented authors!
Barbara J. Jones, North Richland Hills
