hCheers: To dentists Nikki P. Green and Robert W. Leedy for making an emergency home visit to fix my mother’s dental bridge late on a Friday afternoon. Their kindness allowed my mother to celebrate her 85th birthday that evening with a smile.

— David Menefee, Fort Worth

iJeers: To a Keller gym for lack of professionalism and coaching knowledge for some fine athletes. These athletes need praise and guidance in order to achieve their skills to be the very best they can be; however, this is not the case at this gym.

— Brenda Harville, Hurst

hCheers: To the quick-responding Hurst Fire Department, ambulance and paramedics, especially Wilbur. Also the emergency staff at Texas Health Harris Hospital HEB; Dr. Church, nurses Nadya and Christine; room nurses, Vicky, Rosita, Maritza, Aster, Michelle, Lyndsey; and Drs. Lo, Eisen, Ohman. Eugene is doing well thanks to all of you.

— Emma Niekamp, Hurst
