Jeers: To the University of Oklahoma for its eligibility appeal on behalf of a player who was suspended twice by Missouri and arrested twice. Sounds like Coach Bob Stoops and company need to attend Texas’ coaches clinic on ethics, behavior and character. Double jeers if the NCAA allows the player to play anywhere.

Cheers: To Adam Palmer of Executive Window Tinting. He applied 3M window tinting to several windows and storm doors in our house. He was courteous and did an excellent job. My husband and I really like how the film has reduced the glare and the heat in the rooms in which it was applied.

hCheers: To the Dalworthington and Pantego police and fire departments that came to the rescue of two ducklings that had fallen into a storm drain on July 26. Even though there was a mix-up of whose jurisdiction they were in probably Arlington), they didn't leave until the babies were safe.

hCheers: To a special couple. On July 25, seven friends (“the Lunch Bunch”) were having lunch as we have for some 30 years, at Romano’s Macaroni Grill on South University Drive. After a great lunch a charming waiter informed us that a lovely couple had paid our bill. With grateful hearts we thank you.

Jeers: To using trap-neuter-return to control cats. Thousands roam our gardens, killing creatures that help control insects. They live 14 years. Our cities don’t have enough traps, personnel or funds to trap them fast enough to make a difference.
