Cheers: To the ‘Dunkirk-style Little Boats Brigade’ and all the others who rushed to help almost as fast as Harvey came with their boatloads of food and dollars, water and blood and encouragement and big hearts. Sleep well tonight, knowing you were there to confront desperate need.
Roger Summers, Arlington
Jeers: To the so called champion of health organizations that condemn the McDonald’s in John Peter Smith Hospital; it’s affordable, economical and allows visitors and staff to dine in the hospital. Get a life!
Barry D. Wilson,
Cheers: To the party of four from Cleburne who stopped at our table to congratulate us on our 54th wedding anniversary and, as a gift, covered the check’s $54 at Eddie V’s. What nice people and what a great surprise.
Dan Gasparo, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Mike, part owner of Ace Hardware at Denton Highway. After I purchased a piece of chain at another Ace store that was too short, Mike was so nice to give me the amount I needed to finish my project. I’ll be going back there for sure.
Linda Adrian, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the Sprouts on Hulen employee who jump-started my car when the battery died. I had perishable groceries in my car on a hot August day when I asked for his help, and he responded without hesitation. I did not get his name but truly appreciate the help. Thank you so much.
Doris Mocio, Fort Worth
Cheers: Ty Sanders at Holiday Ford dealership in Whitesboro found the exact SUV we were looking for and instructed me on obtaining a veterans discount. Established a fair price. Closing was fast and easy. Great job, Ty.
Bill Thomits, Arlington
Cheers: To the team of Dr. David L. Brown DDS at the Bedford Dentistry team. Special thanks to Dr. Brown, Dawnelle and Shari. I had a difficult time with my implant procedure (totally my fault). They went above and beyond to resolve all my issues. Fantastic team, love them!
George Sandrick, Bedford
Cheers: To our steady local journalists at the Star-Telegram and The Dallas Morning News who bring needed light during a dark and chaotic time, even as they are under siege by our mercurial president. Democracy can’t survive without a free press. They are not the enemy.
North Richland Hills
Cheers: To Texas Health Hospital Clearfork nurses and staff for the excellent care I received when I had my knee revision surgery. Special cheers to the three nurses who watched over my husband Roger, when he was having issues with his chemo and diabetes. Even though I was the patient, you all treated him as if he were!
Leah Owens, Azle
Cheers: To Dr Michael Morris and staff at Animal Hospital Southwest for the loving care they have always given to my dogs. The most recent when it was necessary to allow Twister to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Their caring means more than words can express.
Jeers: To the ticket seller that charges a $50 “booking fee” for concerts. I almost purchased a ticket until I saw that I was being charged a $50 booking fee! I ended the transaction. Watch out for the ridiculously exorbitant fees.
Sue Williams, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Hulen Hills Animal Hospital and especially Dr. Janel Hawkins. Hunter’s diagnosis is terminal Lymphoma, but the staff showed great compassion. The care they are providing is exceptional and the follow up calls by Dr. Hawkins shows she really cares about our dog and us. We highly recommend them.
Andrew and Sherry Marks, Azle
Cheers: To Birchman Baptist Church and the Roll Call organization for providing veterans a lunch and a program on the last Friday each month. Thanks for recognizing the Korean War Veterans this month and allowing us to talk about the “Forgotten Victory” of the Korean War.
