iJeers: To those who walk/jog in the dark hours wearing their dark clothes and shoes. Why do you want to be invisible to drivers? If you must wear the dark colors, slip a white or reflective vest over your stylish outfit. Even a cheap white T-shirt will help.

Cheers: To writers mentioning the Cowboys merchandise, including the bras and panties. Never seen any. Hope I never do. Noted was the “über-expensive watches that have been added to their collection of junk we don’t need.” I bet the watches show the correct time just twice a day — say, 8 and 8.

h Cheers: To Tom Murphy for his article on insurers that steer clear of sicker patients. I’m new to Medicare and already appalled how some insurance supplements tell us which group of doctors to use and medication to take. As retirees on Medicare, we deserve better than that.

Cheers: to Tom Schieffer for his leadership role with the Rangers. I remember when he spoke to Sam Houston High School’s new NHS members in 1987. Such a gentleman. His topic: character. Surely Tom Schieffer defined character that night, as he still does, in big ways and small.

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.

Cheers: To District 3 Fort Worth City Councilman Zim Zimmerman for taking part in the mayor’s Rolling Town Hall. It was good to see my councilman out on a bike in my district.

h Cheers: To Chris and Michelle, a nice couple who stopped and changed a tire (that had blown out) for this 75-year-old woman from out of town. They even had me follow them to a service station so Chris could air up the nearly flat spare. You are special people!
