CHEERS: And congratulations to the recently presented Las Amigas debutantes! What and impressive class of beautiful, talented and intelligent young women! They area credit to their families, sponsors and community!—S.M., Texarkana, Ark.
JEERS: To the Gazette editorial cartoons. Enough! Must your readers be subjected to a steady diet of views depicted only by Ramirez, Stiglich, or Payne? They throw out "red meat" to further inflame extreme right wing conservatives. Your paper was once considered moderate, but no more. Please research "The News in Cartoons" to add variety and to be more fair and balanced.—B.R., Ashdown, Ark.
JEERS: To the Gazette's Jan. 31 Ramirez editorial cartoon. Trump shut down the government—not Pelosi. He is on tape saying he would "be happy to shut down the government."—J.B., Texarkana, Ark.
JEERS: to all those people that do not advertise in advance of their events. Paying for one day early in the ad section of the Gazette or even utilizing the free services that the paper provides indicates a success. People have busy schedules and can not attend many events that they would wish on a short notice. FREE advertising is productive as one day early.—B.B., Texarkana, Texas
