Cheers & Jeers

Cheers and Jeers

Cheers and Jeers publishes every Saturday. This is a bonus package.


Cheers: To the person responsible for turning in my purse at the Chick-fil-A on Bryant Irvin Road on Nov. 6. After calling and visiting the restaurant, I was repeatedly told nothing was turned in until a manager overheard me and said it was there! Lesson learned. Always speak with a manager.

Diane Hughes, Benbrook


Jeers: To the Texas Department of Transportation for recently closing the on-ramp to Interstate 30 to downtown from the Chisholm Trail Parkway. I was an hour late for work, as were others who had jury duty, court dates, etc.

Lynne Harmon, Fort Worth


Cheers: To whoever paid for our lunch at the Chick-fil-A in Burleson. I had ordered at the drive-through and when I pulled up to pay, the employee told me that it had been paid for by a gentleman who wanted to do something nice for the day. I will continue to remember others as he did. That was the only time I’ve had this happen, so I was really surprised.

Betty Waggoner, Joshua

Jeers: To radio station KTFW/92.1 FM “Hank FM” for moving Country Cafe from the 11 a.m.-noon time slot to the 9-11 p.m. slot. People listen for the classic country music. It’s great while driving or cleaning house. Maybe some people sit around listening to the radio at night, as in the 1940s and 1950s, but I doubt it. Bad move.

Bonnie Hromcik, Benbrook


Cheers: To all who helped me celebrate a wonderful, never-to-be-forgotten 80th birthday in Burleson: family, many fun friends, Kraig Parker, Kris and Kathy. What a good time! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Cheers: To Oncor, the Arlington Police Department and animal rescue volunteers. A kitten was up on an electric pole. The Arlington police, Joe and Brandon from Oncor, a local cat rescue organization, Averting CAT-astrophe, and Friends of Arlington Animal Services Rescue all came to rescue the kitten that had been stuck for two days. Ona is now doing well.

Linda Faroukhtakin,



Cheers: To our Hurst Police Department. After living in Hurst for 43 years, I want to say I appreciate what you do for us and for those who come to Hurst. Police Chief Steve Moore and Assistant Chief Steve Niekamp are both native Hurst residents and care for us. Thank you.

Gerald Grieser,



Cheers: To the Fellowship of Female Police Officers of Fort Worth for the generous contributions to the Abandoned Ones and to the North Texas Humane Society’s adopt-a-kennel program in memory of deceased Officer Terri L. Wilson.

Elzie Wilson and family, Fort Worth


Cheers: To the Applebee’s on Rufe Snow Drive and Loop 820 in North Richland Hills for helping our organization raise funds for the Haltom City Public Library. Special cheers to the manager and staff for a delicious breakfast. The Friends of the Haltom City Library are grateful for your help.

Pat Devenport,

Haltom City


Cheers: To all on the fifth floor of Texas Health Huguley Hospital who helped during our stay. Their professional and caring ways made our time there as good as any hospital stay could be. The food was also great.

Joe and Guin Anderson, Kennedale


Cheers: To the man who stopped to assist my son on Nov. 15 after his car rolled over on Texas 121. We appreciate you so very much. Thank you for your help!
