Jeers: To opinionated TV sportscaster Dale Hansen’s recent “unplugged” sports segment where he once again reminded us that he is of much greater moral and ethical fiber than all of his viewers. It did not surprise me when I heard that Dale was on the Ellen Degeneres show.

hCheers: To our Weatherford postman. Our young grandchild wrote us a long letter and addressed the envelope herself. It read only “Grandma and Grandpa.” Somehow it arrived. We’ll treasure it always. We can’t thank him or her enough for extraordinary effort.

hCheers: To Mike Carrera, store director of Albertson’s at Loop 820 and John T. White Road, for making available more handicapped parking places. They are very much in use and seldom is there a vacant one. I know because I use one when I shop there.
