Cheers: To all the hard-work­ing men and women in Amer­ica I see mak­ing the coun­try tick by giv­ing their best ev­ery sin­gle day.

– Gary B. Hicks,

Cheers: To ev­ery­one at Texas Health South­west Fort Worth hospi­tal. I was re­cently hos­pi­tal­ized there with a norovirus in­fec­tion and was treated by the most car­ing, pro­fes­sional staff. They cheer­fully and gently helped me med­i­cally while also en­sur­ing my com­fort. Thank you to ev­ery doc­tor and staff mem­ber for my care dur­ing those difficult days.

Cheers: To Fort Worth Nis­san and Mitch Gear­heart for a pleas­ant, hon­est buy­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Jeers to a MidCi­ties dealer for ad­ver­tis­ing and try­ing to push a 4,500-mile ve­hi­cle as new.

– Dan McDon­ald, Hurst

Cheers: To Thomas Crit­ten­den, our StarTele­gram carrier, for a job well done al­ways. Ev­ery morn­ing our day be­gins with the StarTele­gram, and Tom does his best to de­liver our pa­per on time. As busy as he is, we know how hard that can be. Thanks Tom. You are the best.

Jeers: To the out-oftouch Na­tional Foot­ball League for dis­cour­ag­ing do­na­tions to the Sal­va­tion Army by fin­ing foot­ball play­ers who do­nate in the large red buck­ets near the fields dur­ing games. Char­i­ties need help, and the play­ers’ do­na­tions could have mo­ti­vated many to also con­trib­ute. I will boycott the NFL ex­cept for the Cow­boys.

– Ger­ald Grieser,


Cheers: To the work­ers at Dis­count Tire on North Beach Street for chang­ing my tire as clos­ing time came. Dis­count Tire has al­ways been fair, very cour­te­ous and pro­fes­sional. What great pub­lic re­la­tions.

Cheers: To Don Davis Body Shop in Ar­ling­ton and es­ti­ma­tor Rick Bea­son for as­sign­ing de­tail­ing tech­ni­cian Jose to buff out some mi­nor scratches on my 2006 PT Cruiser. After al­most 13 years of own­er­ship, Jose keeps my daily driver look­ing great.
