Jeers: To the Toronto Blue Jays fans for throwing cans onto the field during Game 5 of the Texas Rangers-Blue Jays game. The call in question was according to the rules. Toronto should be embarrassed by the lack of sportsmanship. You owe the Rangers players and fans an apology.
Nancy Durban, Aledo
Cheers: To the Texas Rangers organization for a fun 2015. You displayed class, dignity and a respect for the game, unlike another team/city that deserves to remain nameless. Go Rangers!
Lou Tielli, Burleson
Cheers: To Dr. Don Matheson for his excellent Oct. 7 letter on telemedicine. Computers are excellent tools with myriad capabilities. However, when I am ill, I want to be diagnosed and treated by a competent, caring and qualified human medical professional.
Jim Linton, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Burk Collins of Arlington Music Hall for making country music available to all residents of our community. These Saturday night shows are awesome!
Leroy Morgan, Arlington
Jeers: To a Watauga restaurant for failing to pay employees their salary, overtime and tips as was justified. It’s a shame that it took a federal lawsuit to force you to do the right thing.
North Richland Hills
Cheers: To Jackie at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. She works hard to keep the children’s area running smoothly and we appreciate her!
Cheers: To Beth at Jack’s Clip Joint in Kennedale. She came to Kindred Hospital’s wound care unit to cut the hair and trim the beard of my husband, Rick. She not only cleaned him up, but made him smile and brighten his day. Thank you, Beth, and everyone at Jack’s.
Deborah Slack, Venus
Cheers: To Barbara Kappus and the Neighborhood Cafe in Hurst for serving free coffee to all police officers and members of our armed forces. Their lives matter just as much as yours or mine.
A.L. McCluney , Hurst
Cheers: To police and firefighters everywhere, especially the departments in Benbrook. They deserve our gratitude 365 nights a year, not just one. Thanks for all you do.
Bill and LaVerne Moore, Benbrook
Cheers: To veterinarian Michael Morris and staff at Animal Hospital of Southwest Fort Worth for their compassionate care of our golden retriever, Angus. Dr. Morris met us at the clinic after hours so we could see Angus. They understood our pain at Angus’ passing over the rainbow bridge and even sent us flowers.
Dorothy Head, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Pat Miller upon his retirement after 34 years of service as the Texas Christian University registrar and director of enrollment management. Pat participated in 66 commencement ceremonies, issued 52,181 diplomas (53 percent of all diplomas awarded by TCU), and was at 57 first days of class. All remarkable achievements. Thanks for all you do for TCU.
Jeers: To whoever in the Texas Christian University area stole the signs in front of the trees we planted for our grandsons. I don’t know why they wanted signs that said “Everett’s tree” or “Henry’s tree.”
Melanie Tate, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Colleyville Heritage High School for the great accomplishments so far this year! I am proud to be part of your band.
Cheers: To Twin Kell Cleaners and their wonderful staff for finding $100 in one of my garments and politely returning it upon pickup.
Cheers: To the three young men who responded to my call to 911 when my husband fell in our home and could not get up. I appreciated the quick response we received and the young men were kind and gentle with my husband. With some work, they were able to get him up. We appreciated their work.
Joyce Hall, Arlington
Cheers: To the anonymous person who paid for my lunch at the Cotton Patch Cafe on Oct. 4 in Burleson.
Bill King, Burleson
Cheers: To Marlise Coulton, a pharmacist at the Walgreens on Camp Bowie Boulevard in Fort Worth. My parents, in their 80s, recently moved from Bedford to Fort Worth and had to change their health and drug plans. Marlise cheerfully and professionally spent time with my parents and turned a trying experience into a positive outcome.
Hal Benson, Bedford
Cheers: To Cheryl McDonald for very professional treatment at the audiology department of the Fort Worth VA Clinic.
Charles L. Beneze,
Cheers: To the unknown person in Aledo or Benbrook who returned my son’s billfold to his mail box after he lost it on the second day of his new job. Nothing was missing; even the money was still there. There are still some honest people around. Thank you so much!
Gayla Looper, Fort Worth
Cheers: To a very special couple who recently retired: the Wootens — Burrel, from being a business owner (over age 90), and Stella, a teacher (under age 90).
Helen West, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the ladies from Venus who came forward to donate their hair for a charity event after the Venus-Kennedale varsity volleyball game. You are angels.
Frank Vondra. Arlington
Cheers: To Hog’s Heaven BBQ in Hudson Oaks. I frequent barbecue joints in Dallas-Fort Worth and this is the best of the best. Thank you for the delicious experience.
Chuck Stoker, Blue Mound
Jeers: To the city of Blue Mound for charging $15 for a garage or yard sale permit — only good for four days or one weekend. If we have to pay that much, at least allow it for two weekends, please. Residents of other cities pay only $5 or $7. Why the $15 in Blue Mound?
Donna White, Blue Mound
Cheers: To Larry and Wilma Johnson for their help after I hit a curb on McCart Avenue and ruined two tires. Larry took me to a nearby Wal-Mart to get two new tires and he put them on my car. He was so efficient and kind. Wilma was consoling. I met two wonderful people.
Jeers: To a remodeling company that installed a handicapped-accessible shower in June. The bench broke in three places and pulled away from the wall. By the end of September, they still hadn’t fixed it.
Odell Mayo, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the Keller High School track team and coach for returning our new pound dog to us. We appreciate your help.
Vera Sweet, Keller
Cheers: To Rustic Fence in Arlington, which has done several quality fence projects for me. But the mark of a great company is what it does when things don’t go flawlessly. That happened on a recent project. Rustic didn’t stop until everything was made right. Great company, great people!
John Wallace, Colleyville
Cheers: To Barbara and Bill of Cowgirl Chem-Dry. A water leak left our carpet severely stained. After four visits, and patiently trying various products, our carpet is spotless and as good as new. Outstanding, dependable service.
Claire and Duffey Brown, Fort Worth
Jeers: To the fake “charity” donation bins popping up in parking lots. It’s doubtful if these are legitimate organizations. What an eyesore! Why aren’t these things investigated and hauled off?
Jenny Anderson, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the staff of the Taco Bell at Green Oaks Boulevard and Texas 360 for holding the purse that I left behind on Oct. 10. Everything was returned intact and I am very grateful.
Ute Cowell, Arlington
Cheers: To Charles McCartney for his Eagle Scout project for American Legion Post 655. Charlie built our fire pit that enabled us to retire the U.S. flags that we gathered. This is a fine young man who deserves every opportunity to attend the U.S. Naval Academy.
Mike Gori, Haltom City
Cheers: To Beverly Stevens, a retired librarian who bakes a cake every week for the firefighters at Station 16. What a thoughtful thing to do!
