Cheers: To Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County. They are the most caring people you could imagine. They are well-organized and provide a great service to the community. I don’t know what my mother would do without them.
— Bruce Selman, Burleson
Cheers: To Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County for their training and response system, and for the quick action by their meal delivery volunteer last week. When my neighbor didn’t answer the door and was unresponsive on the phone, he called 911 and saved her life.

Cheers: To the men and women of the Burleson police for being vigilant. Thank you for keeping our city safer with the recent arrests of bank robbers and burglars, two of which were in our neighborhood. We are grateful for your hard work!
— Owen Morris, Burleson
Cheers: To Ricky with Triple A Towing, who helped me Jan. 19 when my clutch stopped working. The service was quick and I could not have asked for a more professional person. Also cheers to the young man who stopped and offered to help
— Cynthia Giroux, Grand Prairie
Jeers: To U.S. Rep. Randy Weber for comparing our president to Adolf (which he misspelled, by the way) Hitler for not going to Paris. Everyone makes a decision that they regret now and then. People are entitled to their opinion, but this hurt many people and was disrespectful to boot. Shame!
— Stephanie Spencer,
Jeers: To the majority of the Stock Show parade attendees for not standing, and men for not removing their hats, during the passing of the U.S. flag. I was taught at a young age to show your respect for the flag and men and women that have given us the freedoms we take for granted.
— Michael Queen, Fort Worth
Cheers: To a wonderful business that supports the community — Sherwin-Williams (Watauga and Fort Worth). The Polytechnic High School Winter Guard would not be able to perform this season without their help. Sherwin-Williams sponsored and donated paint for a performance floor the guard couldn’t afford.
— Kassandra Juarez, Saginaw
Cheers: To the city of Bedford for Bedford Boys Ranch, which has been kept quite tidy and nice. I’ve been going there since I was an infant. I like how cities keep parks clean and useable, and how it allows people to get some exercise and some fresh air.
— Carson Emery, 13, Bedford
Jeers: To a major insurance company which sent out plastic advertisements in the mail. They’re not even recyclable, so every one of them will be going to a landfill.
— Jason Clinkscales, Irving
Jeers: To a local auto dealership that has kept me waiting two months for a spare tire. After repeated phone calls, all I hear is one excuse after another. I will never buy from this dealership again. Whatever happened to customer service?
— James Farris, Azle
Cheers: To a Fort Worth code compliance officer, Tristan, for handling a late Friday afternoon code issue in my neighborhood on the same day it was called in and calling me back to let me know a citation had been issued. Excellent customer service!
— Donna Riggs, Fort Worth
Cheers: To state Rep. Stephanie Klick for her cannabidiol (CBD) oil bill for intractable epilepsy. My granddaughter, Elissa, 4, has Dravet syndrome, a form of intractable epilepsy. She has a seizure everyday. She is on two medications. CBD oil has been proven to stop the seizures in epilepsy.
— Marie Howard, Keller
Cheers: To Dr. Edwin del Rosario and his entire staff at QuestCare Medical Clinic in Keller. They always can work us in, even without us having to wait. Great nurses and office personnel who call us by name and always show compassion and professionalism.
— Ann and Roland Kelley,
Cheers: To the young ladies who paid for this senior lady’s dinner Jan. 24 at the IHOP on Interstate 20 east of Bryant Irvin Road. Thank you and God bless as you travel life’s road.
— Ruth Shelton, Crowley
Cheers: To the stranger who paid for my morning cup of coffee on Wednesday at the RaceTrac on the corner of Bardin Road and Great Southwest. You made my day and I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.
— Sandra Johnson, Grand Prairie
Cheers: To Stephanie, the pharmacist on duty Jan. 26 at Walgreens on Bryant Irvin Road. I had a quality control problem with the product of a large manufacturer. She spent much time in between a normal busy schedule to make phone calls and negotiate a resolution with the vendor.
— Joseph Klein, Fort Worth
Cheers: To the lady who paid for my purchases at Belk a week or so before Christmas. You proved to me that there are indeed angels here on Earth and I thank you each and every morning since then. You vanished before I could thank you.
— Cheska Clausen, Lake Worth
Cheers: To the manager at the new Pizza Hut on Avondale Haslet Road . Due to a miscommunication, there was a delay in taking our order. When Robert, the manager, learned what happened, he was kind enough to pick up our tab. We definitely will return to this restaurant.
— Randy and Becky Frey, Haslet
Cheers: To a very nice gentleman. Recently after attending a funeral in Granbury, I stopped for lunch at Hoffbrau. As this gentleman was leaving, he stopped by my booth and said, “You don’t know me but lunch is on me today.” What a very unexpected nice gesture. Thank you.
— Peggy Grona, Fort Worth
Cheers: To Judy Steffens’ complaint about the postal service. Time changes everything and everybody. I recall when postal personnel would got out of their way to make sure a first-class letter with 3 cents postage would be delivered to the recipient. Now, since rates have skyrocketed, the service has plummeted.
— George Copeland,
Cheers: To the wonderful staff at Mira Vista Court rehab/long-term care facility. All the therapists, housekeeping, beautician and nursing staff cared for my mother in a very compassionate and profession manner. Also Wanda and her kitchen staff prepared delicious meals and terrific barbecued chicken.
— Debra Aulenbacher,
Cheers: To a nice lady who paid for our lunch at Pulido’s on Jan. 30, due to my husband’s service in the military. We were surprised at the nice gesture. We will pay it forward.
— Mary Ellen and Jim Emery,
Jeers: To the bureaucrats at the Drug Enforcement Agency who wrote regulations limiting the use of painkillers, affecting legal users much more than illegal users. Now some doctors refuse to prescribe these painkillers to surgical patients and all doctors are unable to issue refills without a visit from the patient.
— Jap Jones, Alvarado
Cheers: To Tony and Marco at Mini of Arlington for turning what could have been a huge hassle into a win-win!
— Rick and Leti Carson,
