h Cheers: To the Hurst-Euless-Bedford school district for offering professional development opportunities in early childhood education at no cost to private pre-schools and day care centers in the H-E-B area. All H-E-B personnel are friendly, helpful and encouraging, and our staff always learns something new we can use in our program.

Jeers: To Texas Sens. Cornyn and Cruz for putting guns, money and bullets over the safety, health and welfare of Texans and other citizens. Plus, those senators who joined their ranks should be ashamed of themselves. This convinces me of the need for term limits for all politicians.

Cheers: To Walking Tall Ranch in Pilot Point for taking in 10 dressage horses, their distraught owners and their trainer/instructor on very short notice. Owner, staff and other boarders were very welcoming and attended to our every need. We are all settled in and very pleased.

Jeers: To a local landscaping company that would not come back to our property to evaluate problems with our newly planted grass. No follow-up to numerous calls and emails. Nothing! Guess their motto is: “Get our money and it’s done!”

Cheers: To the Mansfield Fire Department for responding to a two-alarm fire at Word of Life Church in Mansfield. We want to express our appreciation for their compassion and professional manner, and for quickly extinguishing the fire.

Cheers: To the three outfielders of the Texas Rangers baseball team. I love the way they come together with a hug at the end of the game. It looks so sweet.

Jeers: To the Fort Worth Opera for not warning the public about the profuse use of profanities and vulgarities in the performance of Glory Denied. The foul language in the dialogue cast a negative image on the whole opera festival and portrayed Fort Worth as a city of unrefined roughnecks.

Cheers: To XTO Energy for hosting the 42nd Swift Retiree Reunion on March 23. The company provided lunch and a tour of the refurbished Swift & Co. building, which it occupies. Thanks to Peter Tunnard, Cathy Clements and staff, and Warren and Pat Davenport, who organized the annual event. The event was enjoyed by retirees and their families.

Cheers: To KTVT/Channel 11 for showing the beautiful and sad memorial for the West firefighters, and jeers to the other stations that did not show it. Double jeers to CNN and MSNBC, which are still showing even the friends and relatives of the Boston bombers, encouraging others to do bad deeds.
