Jeers: To the Fort Worth Catholic Diocese: San Mateo, the small Catholic church on Lovell Avenue near University Drive, has been closed and fenced off for months, preventing the people from attending church and taking care of the grounds. It is an eyesore from the street and a sad memory for the members who want to take care of their church.

Cheers: To Precision Tune Auto Care on Altamesa Boulevard. I have used their services for at least four years — oil change, air conditioning check, inspection — and they are very professional and courteous. That brings me back. Thanks for keeping my car “in tune”!
Cheers: To St. Philip Presbyterian Church in Hurst for their project “Undy Sunday,” contributing clothing for children entering foster care. Providing “first night” bags enables children to enter their first placement with new underpants, socks, pajamas and diapers if needed. Also to member Edna Mares for sewing over 100 pairs of shorts.
Susan Riley, Hurst
Cheers: To UT Southwestern and Zale Lipshy University Hospital in Dallas for the superb care my wife received. Special thanks to Dr. John Truelson, a very skilled neck oncology surgeon; Scott Perrin, PCT (a “concierge” in the surgery waiting room); and to all the surgery team, staff and nurses who cared for my wife.
Jim Hahn, Fort Worth
Jeers: To North Richland Hills Animal Control for not coming out to investigate a snake. As the homeowner left to deal with it myself, I thank 911 Wildlife for coming out the same day, and assuring this great-grandmother that the snake was gone.

Cheers: To Cowtown Warriors, a group of veterans helping other local veterans who are struggling to find work, pay bills, and get counseling. Check out their website, be impressed, and help them help others.
Cheers: What a nice surprise we received at the IHOP on Interstate 20 at Little Road when we were told our breakfast tab had been paid. I asked by whom, and was told “by a angel.” Thank you angel for your kindness. You made two ladies happy.
Martha Brown, Arlington
Cheers: To Nova Eagle Property Management for the outstanding upgrades to The Falls & Oak Village apartment complex. Security fencing, fresh paint and gorgeous landscaping have made the property an asset to our neighborhood.

Cheers: To all Midway Park Elementary teachers, but especially to Mrs. Brewer, Mrs. C. Williams, Mrs. Perez, Mrs. Lakhani and counselor Mrs. Keough as well as Principal Mrs. S. Williams (and MPE staff) for finishing another great year at their school. Our kids love it there!
Vince Basset, Euless
Jeers: To a North Texas tourist attraction where the water was cut off June 15 and patrons had no access to water or bathrooms. Water cost $4.50 per bottle. After we spent $45 on water, my four grandchildren begged for more. We left for health reasons. Free water is needed. It’s in horrible condition.
Rhonda Krupp, Aledo
Cheers: To the Granbury Theatre Company. We recently had the pleasure of attending “Shrek the Musical” and “South Pacific” at the Granbury Opera House. The singing, acting, staging, and venue could not have been better! The performances were awesome and even the ticket prices are reasonable.
Mike Olszewski, Granbury
Cheers: To Dr. Cindy Zimmerman for meeting me at her offices on a day she is normally closed. Her kindness and compassion in helping me with a painful eye problem is so appreciated. This is a healthcare provider who really cares for her patients.
Cheers: To Luis Perez, who found my wallet in the parking lot and went to the trouble to find my home and return it. Thank you so very much!
