Jeers: To Seth Rogen and his dissing of American Sniper. Deliberate assassination of a foreign leader is a more moral position? Cheers to Jane Fonda who defended the film, saying it is as relevant as Coming Home (1978) which she starred in.
— Lynn Holt, Mansfield
Jeers: To an adolescent in an accident Jan. 16. You kept texting, even after hitting another vehicle?
— Bruce Kalapach, Fort Worth
Jeers: To a local bank president who made me feel like just another number after reminding me I was one of his 80,000 daily customers. He didn’t know protocol on savings accounts and was zero help in helping me collect my $2,700 that his bank lost.
— Jen Marable, Fort Worth
Cheers: To a great team of firefighters at Station No. 17. My husband’s difficulty in walking has caused him to fall on several occasions. Thanks for the helping hands, picking him up and putting him in bed or in his favorite chair — always timely, considered and worthy of the name Fort Worth firefighters.
— Eunice Givens, Fort Worth
Jeers: To the Ohio State fan for trash-talking a TCU fan in the reserved Ohio State fans’ section of a local restaurant where one of your alumni invited him. An OSU fan started trash-talking, saying how worthless TCU is. If you can’t take it, don’t dish it.
— Steve Smith, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Corbin at Direct Energy for going above and beyond.
— Garry Fellers, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Michelle Ritenour and Encore School of Dance for the extra good Christmas recital at Chisholm Trail High School
— Wanda McDaniel,
Cheers: To Larry, the school crossing guard at Walker Creek Elementary in North Richland Hills. Not only does he ensure the safety of the children crossing the street at the school entrance, but also ensures cars stop to allow this senior citizen to safely complete her three-mile run.
— Lulu Lyle,
North Richland Hills
Cheers: To a good Samaritan for her extraordinarily kind act at the checkout in Tom Thumb on South Hulen Street Jan. 16. We would love to repay you (and properly thank you!) but did not get your name.
— Scott Kirk, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Verizon’s Holly Fergus for her respect for the customer. Her seamless synthesis of expertise and empathy allows her to reach a perfect equilibrium between the exigencies of a large corporation and the concerns of an individual residential customer.
— Arnold Benson, Keller
Jeers: To drivers who turn left onto Meacham Boulevard from a right-turn-only lane at the Interstate 35W northbound service road. It used to be a two-lane left turn but not now. Police could be writing tickets between 5:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., and probably all day if they monitored this location!
— L.W. Crow, Fort Worth
Jeers: After long planning and many volunteer hours placed by parents for a multi-school competition at a local gymnasium, a coach from the host school decided that the basketball team needed to practice, disrupting this important event which was a benefit to the whole district.
— Carol Harkenrider, Grapevine
Cheers: To Mayor Hooks of Blue Mound for his long, hard work to get a water company for the city.
— Keith McDaniel,
Cheers: To the kind woman at the Fort Worth Stock Show Jan. 19 who picked up my distressed toddler. She had gotten disoriented and ran off while I was putting her twin in their stroller. In a crowded place, you brought her back to me and saved us both.
— Corinne Fiagome, Mansfield
Jeers: To the jerk who stole the Christmas wreath and easel on my husband’s grave at Greenwood Memorial Park. I made that with love for him from myself, our children and grandchildren. When things go wrong for you (and they will), remember you are a lowlife grave robber and you will pay.
— Cleona Brown, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the family that recently at Mi Pueblo in North Richland Hills paid for our dinner, in thanks for my service in Korea. It was so gracious of you. It was paid forward.
— Charles Palmer,
North Richland Hills
Jeers: To the bigoted protesters at the Muslim conference in Garland, who managed to behave in a manner that was neither Christian nor patriotic. Freedom of religion is for all Americans, not just you.
— Michael Hathoot, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Carol at the Flower Mound soccer game. She advised me that people over the age of 70 could attend all Lewisville school events, except varsity football, free! She gave me my verification card. Thanks from a happy grandma.
— Myretta Bell, Bedford
Cheers: To the Royces, Pierces and Baums of Home Town NRH — wonderful neighbors who helped recover a stolen piece of yard art from the lake edge. The piece was so heavy it took two, but the Royces did it. Then all three teenagers to get it moved back. Home Town neighbors rock!
— Jerry and Avis Sorenson,
North Richland Hills
Cheers: To the Artisan Center Theater in Hurst. Their production of Annie was fantastic — great performers, music, costumes, choreography and “Sandy the dog.” The cast always graciously meets the patrons in the foyers for pictures following all performances. We will be back and back.
— Gayle Gunter,
Cheers: To good Samaritans Don and Jan, who bought lunch for us and our daughter on Christmas Eve at Pappadeaux. This was such a wonderful and generous gift and showed the true spirit of Christmas. We enjoyed meeting you and will repay you by passing this forward!
— Nick and Linda Nicholas,
Cheers: To Dr. John Minnerly and staff at the University Animal Hospital for taking such great care our beloved Gillibean. You truly went above and beyond for our little Saint Bernard. We will miss her dearly but I know that everything that could be done was.
— Elizabeth Bader,
Cheers: To Susan and Tom Durant of Classic Chevrolet, who secretly paid for eight retired ladies’ dinners at Bonefish Grill in Southlake Tuesday. We were stunned when the manager told us and genuinely appreciative. We will do our best to pay it forward in kind.
— Donna Hodgson,
Cheers: To the gentleman who found my wallet in a cart outside Walmart on Clifford Street and turned it into the clerk. And to the sweet Walmart employee who kept it until I returned to get it. (Everything was intact!) This senior citizen appreciates your honesty. Many good people in Texas!
Marvelyn Walker, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the four Wise County firemen and Parker County sheriff for helping me when my car overheated on Jan. 23. Thank you again for everything, and for the escort to a safe area!
— Stacy Servis, Springtown
