Cheers: To TCU's football team for overcoming adversity (some of which the Horned Frogs brought on themselves) to defeat West Virginia on a last-second field goal. The players and staff showed Horned Frog pride in Morgantown. Great win — now beat Kansas State.
— Richard H. Moore, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the employees of Classic Chevrolet in Granbury. My father was diagnosed with cancer a month ago and has had to leave his job for treatments. His fellow employees raised a donation for my dad to help in his time of need. God bless you all, and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
— Chad Anderson, Fort Worth

— John and Delores Rangel,
Cheers: To Taco Casa and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit for opening in the Bridge Street/Bridgewood area in east Fort Worth. Build it and they will come: The Eastchase area and the entire east side is looking to support additional restaurants and retail development.
— Scott Willingham,
Jeers: To the election official at the Crowley Community Center Oct. 23 who very loudly denounced Gov. Perry and campaigned for Wendy Davis while I and several others were trying to vote.
— Glenda Stephens, Burleson
Cheers: To Bowie High School in Arlington for the spectacular Halloween Spookapalooza on Oct 28. It was a fun, safe environment for the neighborhood kids. All the BHS student presenters were fully engaged and having as much fun as the kids they were entertaining. Go Bowie!
— June Owens, Grand Prairie
Cheers: To the two brave elderly ladies and man who stopped to help me get my truck started on Oct. 12. My son and his fiancée were flagging down cars for awhile. It was after dark on Farm Road 1187 close to U.S. 377. It meant a lot because I had my two small grandchildren with me.
— Melissa Greer, Everman
Jeers: To the Arlington motorcycle officer making traffic stops on Texas 360 during rush hour. It’s bad enough with stop-and-go commuting without having you making a traffic stop and making drivers slam on their brakes. Go to more important places before 8 a,m. — like school zones!
— Tonya Tate, Arlington
Cheers: To Shawn Michie, Atmos Energy, for getting the District Regulator House updated on property that backs up to our backyard. It was an eyesore that was put up around 1923. Thank you .
— Ann Freeman, Fort Worth
Jeers: To a developer in a homeowners association in northwest Fort Worth. Because he’s the developer, he’s allowed to dump concrete. Clean your lots, dump on your own land! I don’t want to look at your mess. What good is an HOA if I’m told to call code compliance?
— Teresa Koschelew, Fort Worth

— Celya Holland, Fort Worth
* Cheers: To the doctors and staff of Harris Parkway Animal Clinic in Southwest Fort Worth, who have offered excellent care for my animals for over 20 years and are especially kind and supportive when end of life decisions must be made. Their compassionate words and gentle care are most appreciative.
— Glovinnia Joan Rambin,
* Jeers: to Ford for dropping the Ranger and Sport Trac. They are practical and quality vehicles. Also to Lincoln for dropping the Town Car. This is what you get for hiring a non-car guy to run a car company.
— Jackie Robinson, Arlington
Cheers: To Burleson firesStation No. 1 for replacing the battery in our chirping smoke detector which the builder installed in the middle of a 20-foot ceiling. Your quick response, cheerful attitude and willingness to help the citizens of Burleson is greatly appreciated. Thank you for all that you do.
— Celeste Neal, Burleson
Cheers: To Knights Waste Services. On Oct. 29 the driver of Truck 222 made sure all my refuse was dislodged out of the cart by shaking several times. When some fell into the street, he promptly got out and got that too!
— Judi Maulsby, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the young woman who returned my son’s wallet she found on the street in the Westpoint addition of Fort Worth. It was intact, money and everything. Restored my faith in people. Wish I had asked her name.
— Fay Broyles, Fort Worth
* Cheers: To the Honor Flight No. 22 at DFW Airport and to all the Honor Flight staff for a wonderful two days in Washington, D.C. honoring veterans from World War II and the Korean War. A special thanks to Karen and Sandy and to John Hiser. Thanks for the memories and the honor.
— Archie Lee Moore and
Dale “Red” Robinson,
* Jeers: To the entire Dallas Cowboys coaching staff. It was very apparent that the miserable Washington Redskins had one objective in mind: knock out Tony Romo with all that blitzing. Why didn’t we have just two receivers out there and keep two tight ends to help the line with the blocking?
— Sentina Kettler, Burleson
* Cheers: To Josh who paid for my coffee and scone at Barnes & Noble Oct. 31. I had not known you previously, but I will certainly remember you and your kindness.
— Gladys McDonald,
North Richland Hills

— Dee Pritchard, Fort Worth
Jeers: To the city of Fort Worth and their contractor. The tracking of sewage sludge all over County Road 4423 and Farm Road 66 in Hill County is not the way to be a good neighbor. This is not acceptable!
— Luanne N. Langley, Grandview
Cheers: To Doug Schultz of Home Sweet Home and Ella from Community Hospice for being so supportive as we said goodbye to our mother. Not only did they pray with the family but showed love and care for someone they only had hours to get to know, making a difficult time more bearable.
— Keith Bauman, Hurst
