h Cheers: To the family, friends and neighbors of the late Jerry Waller for their recent vigil. I certainly will never forget that tragic day, nor the circumstances that caused it. It has given me a whole different mindset concerning our police force. God bless you. Continue your fight for justice.

Jeers: To Keith Urban. We love American Idol, but please get rid of Keith Urban! He ruins the show. How can he judge when he sings along with the contestants? His hair, his head bopping back and forth — he is gross to watch. Cheers to Harry Connick! Love him. He really brings class to the show.

iJeers: To the person behind us at the corner of Granbury Road and South Hulen Street who honked at my wife for refusing to turn in front of a train less than 50 feet from the crossing. The crossarms were not working and they thought she could beat the train. This is not a video game!

iJeers: To the Grapevine shops that would not let Heritage AMBUCS sell parking for a $5 donation as we have done for almost a decade. Shame on those businesses for taking away from veterans and children who benefit from those donations. Who’s going to make sure your patrons have parking spots now?
