hCheers: To Chris and Rudy of David Newberry Plumbing. They went out of the way to see that I got the right kitchen faucet to replace my broken one. They were fast, efficient and very pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend them.

— Mary Lemond, Fort Worth

iJeers: To the pest control company I called about squirrels in the attic. For $65 they guarantee they will trap them. No squirrels found but suddenly I had a rat “infestation” in the attic. For $12,400 they would get rid of them. Called a reputable company, no rats were found.

— Fernando Jimenez, Fort Worth

hCheers: To Tom Grieve, Texas Ranger baseball announcer, who is one of the nicest, most thoughtful, considerate men in the sports world. He never makes derogatory remarks about players or opponents and is quick to praise them. He treats fans like royalty. Thanks, Tom! (Mr. Busby, you’re special too.)

— Fran Basden, Burleson
