Tablet Opinion

Cheers & Jeers

hCheers: To Applebee’s and other restaurants that provided free meals to veterans on Veterans Day. Applebee’s also had a table for veterans where we could meet and talk with other vets. It was a very enjoyable experience. Thanks, Applebee’s.

hCheers: To the firefighters who walked my street to make sure we had smoke detectors in our homes. To my surprise, I needed batteries in mine and they replaced them. Such a great program! Thank you so much.

i Jeers: To today’s professional athletes, arrogant, self-centered types who receive accolades as though they are the greatest people in the history of the world. Athletes of yesteryear were very honored to just receive a congratulatory pat on the back.
