hCheers: To Dr. Clifford Simmang and physician assistant Trish Juline for performing my laparoscopic colon resection, even with unforeseen events that exceeded their fine reputation. My early recovery is further evidence of their quality work and care.

— Graham Merrick, Fort Worth

iJeers: To Facebook. It has a policy of no porn. One group [titled with a famous name] has porn for months. Those offended have deleted, blocked, removed and reported to Facebook. They have ignored us. Porn being on Facebook, who knew?

— Ellen Hinckley,

North Richland Hills

hCheers: To the kind gentleman (named Tripp?) who came to the rescue of my mother when her car wouldn’t start in the parking lot of Hulen Mall. Not only did you make the phone call for help, you also returned later to check on her. We are so appreciative of your kindness.

— Jeff Smith, Fort Worth
