Jeers: To the museum that has a display on the Trinity River. I could do better. The pictures are just ugly. Brian Luenser is the one you should have hired. He lives in Fort Worth and definitely knows the Trinity. Have you seen his work? What were you thinking?
— Cindy Leslie, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the Fort Worth Police Bike Patrol for all the work they do helping Mayor Price’s Rolling Town Halls to be safe and successful.
— Terry Bradley, Fort Worth
Never miss a local story.
Jeers: To Jon Daniels for attending the Dallas Cowboys “school of management” and ruining our world-class Texas Rangers. How he still has a job is beyond many of us. Cheers to Ron Washington for his winning seasons, long record and enjoyable infectious spirit. You will be missed on the field.
— Meredith Miller, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the Weatherford Police Department for helping get into my car which I accidentally left my keys in. They came to Weatherford High School and saved me.
— Susann M. Eller, Burleson
Jeers: To a parking garage in the West Seventh Street corridor. At Sunday brunch I parked from 11:04 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. where multiple signs indicate free parking with a West Seventh merchant validation. Fred’s waitress indicated they are not one of the businesses that can validate parking. The parking facility required $20 to exit. This is blatant misrepresentation of the area.
— Rick Wild, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Carl Wentworth of Wentworth Pest and Lawn. Even though we have no pets at the present time, we had a flea infestation of biblical proportions. Carl took care of our problem efficiently, pleasantly and very reasonably. We highly recommend him. Thanks, Carl.
— Nedra Schell, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Lt. B.W. Johnson from the Fort Worth Police. My son and I had car trouble and Officer Johnson helped us push our car to safety. He even followed me home once the courtesy patrol graciously jumped my battery just to make sure we made it safely.
— Lark Wallis-Johnston,
Cheers: To the lady who rescued my lab. He ran off and while looking for him, my veterinarian’s office called. A lady saw him running down Harwood Road and stopped. He jumped in her car and she took him to their office. I will be eternally grateful to this angel.
— Karen Brookman, Keller
Jeers: To the parents of young children who let them run wild at the TCU game! They ran up and down the stairs causing disturbance as their parents ignored them while texting. Given ticket prices, I would think it would be better to leave them home with a babysitter!
— D.J. Benson, Fort Worth
Jeers: To a Fort Worth car wash after their equipment ripped off my rear wiper and the extremely rude and hostile response by their manager when I reported the incident — including keeping the piece that broke off and refusing to give his name and a company phone number.
— Paula Brown, Fort Worth
Jeers: To a car wash in Azle where an employee used a metal wrench and took the paint off our antenna and right front fender of a new GMC truck to the tune of $300. Owners would not pay to use our body shop. Stay clear of this place!
— Jennifer Childress,
Jeers: To The T for cutting the FAREAID program. This resource is essential for people struggling to get by and get ahead. Maybe we could divert some of the tax dollars we spend subsidizing downtown parking (approximately $3.2 million will be spent this year) to support this program.
— James Petrovich, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Just-in-Time Tree and Landscape. Watching those three guys work renewed my faith in the American work ethic. A fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work. How refreshing! Anyone needing a tree cut down can’t go wrong hiring them.
— Don Billings, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Adam Hartung of Forbes magazine for graphically pointing out the differences between the Reagan administration and the Obama administration.
— Tom Smusz, Brock
Cheers: To the employees of Acme Brick. Your generous donation of school supplies for our Daggett Montessori students was greatly appreciated! We are so fortunate to have an adopter like Acme Brick!
— Holly Heath, Watauga
Jeers: To the thieves who cut the lock on our gate, came into our yard and stole my husband`s truck and $2,000 of tools Monday. Cheers to the quick response of the Fort Worth Police who recovered the truck. We appreciate the courteous and professional manner with which they treated the situation.
— Joe and Sheila Beck,
Cheers: To the Dallas Cowboys. They are always good — for a laugh.
— Paul R. Schattman, Arlington
Jeers: To the Springtown woman who, the last week of August, gunned down two little dogs who wandered into her yard. They were harmless and your new neighbors’ family pets. Black heart or no heart? Overly passionate about trespassers — glad it wasn’t their kids.
— Sondra Whiteley, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Brian and Pam Copeland. When my son Tim’s truck broke down, you were so kind to stop and help push it out of the roadway. Pam even said a prayer with this old mom to me keep calm as we waited for help. God bless you!
— Karen Jones, Arlington
Cheers: To Neighborhood Police Officer Adam Coleman for organizing the collection of stolen and abandoned shopping carts that blemished our neighborhood. Also to Officer Victor Tapia, Kirby’s Radiator Service and the Carter-Riverside Neighborhood Association for their help in retrieving carts. Jeers to folks who remove them from businesses for personal use.
— Winston Barney, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Barkman & Smith Physical Therapy Clinic in Bedford. The office staff is attractive and very personable. The therapy is conducted in a friendly manner, and services are always provided in a professional and dignified atmosphere. Thanks for the many health benefits that helped me achieve significant progress.
— Jim Chartier, Hurst
Jeers: To Handitran for being an overwhelmed, understaffed and underfunded service. The online sign-up has been under construction all summer. They offer no solutions so my 89-year- old father can play bridge on a regular basis, his only outing. Mayor, please make it work.
— Alana Lloyd, Arlington
Cheers: To the various cities throughout Texas that have started Trap-Neuter-Return programs to control their feral cat populations. Jeers to cities who ignore studies that show it’s an effective way to control stray cat populations and would rather spend taxpayer money to have them destroyed.
— Lisa Cassell, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the city’s leadership for expressing its confidence in Police Chief Jeff Halstead. Cheers to the chief for the job he has done for the citizens of Fort Worth.
— Arnold Barkman, Fort Worth
