Cheers & Jeers

Texarkana Gazette - - OPINION -

JEERS: To the city of Texarkana, Ark., for not tak­ing the time to go into neigh­bor­hoods and check­ing the roads! The holes have been filled with black top over and over again. I have a bent tire rim be­cause I hit one of th­ese holes that was filled with wa­ter. Our neigh­bor­hood roads are break­ing up from large trucks trav­el­ing on them and for­got­ten main­te­nance by our city. What do we have to do to get at­ten­tion from our city fa­thers to get some real road paving done in our neigh­bor­hoods?—A.A.W., Texarkana, Ark.

CHEERS: To Mary McPher­son for a well re­searched let­ter pub­lished 10-2918 re­gard­ing Bruce Wester­man’s vot­ing record. If more cit­i­zens would read the Con­gres­sional Record pub­lished weekly by the Gazette when Congress is in ses­sion, they could make in­formed de­ci­sions about can­di­dates rather than be­liev­ing at­tack ads or vot­ing along party lines. I ap­plaud her courage in speak­ing up.—B.R., Ash­down, Ark.

CHEERS: I would like to thank the lady that was shop­ping in Big Lots store on No­vem­ber 2, 2018. She paid for an elec­tric heater that I was pur­chas­ing for my el­derly aunt due to the theft of one that I had pre­vi­ously pur­chased. We were just chat­ting in line about all the changes in the world to­day and how lit­tle re­spect that some have for oth­ers. I had no idea that she was a God­send for my aunt and I. I truly thank you and God bless you from the bot­tom of my heart.—V.B., Nash, Texas
