Cheers: To the Sid Richardson Art Museum for the Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West exhibition. Catlin’s paintings document the American Indian life in the 1830’s. This sample of Catlin’s paintings is on loan from the National Gallery of Art. Entry into the Museum is free.

Cheers: To the assistant manager, John, at the Wal-Mart in Lake Worth. He went above and beyond to help my husband and me find a swing that we were looking for. He also gave a gas card for making the drive out there, because the Lake Worth store is a long way from my home.

h Cheers: To the Fort Worth Police Department for being there on Tuesday, Oct. 7, to direct traffic at the non-functioning traffic lights at the intersection of Alta Mere Drive and Green Oaks Boulevard. That was never our experience while living in Houston.

Cheers: To Emirates Airline for raising the bar in World Class air travel with their A380 Airbus. Time to “up your game,” American Airlines. The bowl of nuts offered on your aging business class MD 80s is getting stale.

i Jeers: To Mansfield’s planning and zoning officials. Does Mansfield really need four auto parts stores within a one-block radius? Landmark, O’Reilly and AutoZone are already there at the intersection of West Debbie Lane (Farm Road 1187) and Farm Road 157. What the city needs is nice restaurants!

Cheers: To Sheriff Dee Anderson for his Sept. 28 article showing care and compassion toward others less fortunate. It’s proof that he is the only Republican in Tarrant County worth voting for. Or in most of Texas, for that matter.

Jeers: To the Chisholm Trail Parkway. Since it opened in May, it seems that progress on the remaining construction has slowed to a crawl. Meanwhile, traffic congestion in the construction area at South University Drive and Interstate 30 is a nightmare all day long. I guess we need just a little more patience, because the parkway was supposed to be “complete” by late September.

hCheers: To the gentleman with Lubbock roots at the Arlington In-N-Out Burger Sept. 18 who took time to thank my Vietnam veteran Marine husband for his service. And, to all folks and /businesses that show appreciation. Glad we do a better job recognizing the service/sacrifice of our veterans.

hCheers: To the three African-American families who stood their ground to protect their land in Grapevine. Cheers to the city of a Grapevine for doing the right thing and standing with them. Jeers to the builder who wanted their land for development.
