iJeers: To the downtown street cleaner driving his noisy machine up and down the same streets between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. while people are trying to sleep. Five hours! The same streets! And it had rained hard the day before! Next, we will have to replace the worn-out streets.

— David Soens, Fort Worth

hCheers: To Graham at Action Video in Arlington for not hesitating to quickly get my husband’s college commencement DVD in the mail ahead of schedule. My mother-in-law had been transferred to hospice and because of Graham, she was able to see her son graduate before she passed away a short time later.

— Christina Mancini, Bu rleson

iJeers: To the man driving a blue Chevrolet pickup on Whitley Road in Keller who turned in front of me onto Rapp Road, failing to yield the right of way and leaving the scene June 19. I hope your parents are wondering about the damage on the truck.

— Doug Shipps, Watauga
