Jeers: To a local roofing company that received $900 from insurance to replace my metal storage building a year and a half ago and refused to replace the building or give me the money to replace it. It doesn’t bother them that I’m 85 and handicapped.
Billie Kornegay, Fort Worth
Jeers: To an auto repair shop in Fort Worth. When I got my car back my windshield visor, two sheepskin seat-belt chest protectors and sheepskin ear muffs were missing.
Donna McKee, Fort Worth
Cheers: For Leonard Pitts’ columns. He has been sorely missed by thinking people.
Gail McCoy, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Therapy Excellence in Arlington for the best experience I have had in physical therapy anywhere. Thank you, Spence Noble, my therapist who challenged me every day and got me moving again. Thanks to Matt his intern and all of the other therapists for their help as well.
Ina Hudson, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the TCU women’s soccer program and head coach Eric Bell, whose team made it to the NCAA tournament in back-to-back seasons. The team finished runner-up in the Big 12 Tournament for the third time in six years and had a record of 12-7-3. Named to the All-Big-12 team were Katie Lund and Ryan Williams. Thanks for all you do for TCU.
Cheers: To a young Benbrook couple who found our rescue dog, who had broken out of our yard. They were kind enough to take him to the Lancaster shelter to have the tag traced. We had been frantically searching for hours. God bless you and all pet lovers who care.
Pat Burkhart, Benbrook
Jeers: Relocated to Fort Worth to live near family. Inspired by Van Cliburn’s legacy, I presumed culturally that Fort Worth would be aesthetically fulfilling. Sadly, the predominant tastes here are country music, Tex-Mex food and massive adulation of the Cowboys and Rangers. Fort Worth truly is a cowtown.
Dianne Nichols Thodos,
Cheers: I’d like to commend the people who are so involved with the Las Vegas Trail revitalization project and the stories that have first started out about the project of the Las Vegas Trail area and the troubles that this community has endured. There is hope. God bless the little children.
Gloria Enrriques, Fort Worth
Jeers: To NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. He has too much power and needs to back off and leave Jerry Jones alone. I feel Goodell is too full of himself. He has shown how insensitive he is to the whole situation: So unfair.
Betty Warren, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the volunteers who drive veterans of Tarrant County to medical appointments at the VA clinic of Fort Worth: Hector, Jim, John and Stan.
Ray Hogue, North Richland Hills
Cheers: To the couple who paid for our lunch at Olive Garden. They overheard we were newlyweds: Sincere thanks to the both of you.
Sean Vaught, River Oaks
Cheers: To Fort Worth police officers Smith and Robinson, who gave us wonderful assistance and advice about a recently stolen trailer. We are fortunate to have such dedicated and caring officers protecting us.
Mike and Susan Kennemer,
Cheers: That everyone is alive (“Floor collapses at Denton apartment complex,” Monday). Jeers to the party host/hostess. And partygoers. Guess common sense isn’t very common in college. There’s a reason there are occupancy limits. All costs should fall on the host, followed by fines!
Tuesday L. Peacock,
Cheers: To Miss North Texas High School Rodeo Association, Madelynn Vining. During a photo shoot in the Stockyards, she noticed a horse had pulled its lead rope loose from its trailer and walked 50 yards to retie it up for the absent owner.
Tommy Jordan, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Stephanie Traxson for the purchase, from Betty Coomer, of the two metal steers that she has had placed at the Handley Caboose Museum property at the 6600 block of East Lancaster. They are definitely an added attraction to the property. She has dedicated them to the memory of her husband, Eddie Traxson.
Cheers: To Southlake Women’s Club, Golden Rule Printing and Ardoin Advertising for supporting Mid Cities Christmas Providers, an organization providing “Christmas” to Birdville and H.E.B. ISD families needing assistance. In its 34th year, this Adopt-a-Family program helps 500 families annually, celebrate Christmas. For more information please visit ChristmasProviders.org.
North Richland Hills
Cheers: To James Spurlock, professional artist from Granbury, for being the guest artist for the North West Art Association at the November meeting. James works in all mediums and subject matter. His demonstration of painting a portrait of Rembrandt in pastels was spectacular!
Carol Hogan, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Arlyn Jean Witten, who as of this month kept an active RN license for 65 years! She has dedicated her whole life to service to her patients, family and friends! Blessings as she continues to stay active in the nursing field. She is one in a million!
Donna Witten, Fort Worth
Jeers: To a local business owner. See you in court soon.
Timothy R. Huffman, Belton
Jeer: To a friend. I lent her $20 and felt bad about confronting her. Well, it has been over a month.
Russell Clark, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Jeff Crawford at RLB Sales and Leasing on Camp Bowie, who made an emergency car buying experience an easy and pleasurable experience.
Ross Tatum, Aledo
Jeers: To those who dismiss the efforts of all private and parochial high school football players and coaches this season. These young men and coaches worked equally hard as their public school counterparts, and last I checked had a 50-50 record against their public school opponents.
Mark Tompkins, Arlington
Jeers: To citizens and former city leaders who are upset they are not in power so they actively work on measures that will destroy the city.
Cheers: To Arlington Water Utilities for quick and efficient action on Halloween afternoon to repair, and later clean up, a properly marked water line ruptured by a cable construction company (JEERS) in the Parker Oaks Subdivision.
Jerry Scott, Arlington
Cheers: For the excellent articles in the Star Telegram on Saturday, Nov. 11, regarding the Republican tax bill that Congress just passed.
Cary Clark, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Grapevine High School faculty and students and everyone who worked so hard to have an awesome Veterans Day program. We attended for the first time this year, as our son-in-law was the speaker. Lots of veterans made the walk, and the program was tastefully done. Thank you GHS!
Peggy and Don Davis,
Cheers: To John, a rookie off-duty policeman, for stopping to help us change a flat tire late Wednesday evening when we were coming down Hulen. We barely made it to a filling station and found out the air machine was not working, so we had to put on the spare.
