Cheers: To the Fort Worth Fire Department for responding rapidly to an unexpected event that was happening at our complex in the Amli Upper West Side community in downtown. A sincere thanks for all you do for our community.

— Landon Lough, Fort Worth

Jeers: To a Tarrant County poll worker during the November election. The man needs additional training, and his attempt at being a comedian did not work.

— Judy Prescott, Arlington

Cheers: To the homeowner at the end of Magnolia Court in Bedford who once again had amazing, bright-colored Christmas lights dancing all over his yard and home to car radio music. I hope my check in your mailbox will help pay for your big electric bill.

— Vince Basset, Euless
