JEERS: To the Texas High School administration. Why is it that Texas High is the only that has to have tickets to get into graduation? I know they are a much bigger school with more students to graduate, but let's take it from First Baptist Church to the Texas High Football Field. Even small schools have theirs at a football field if weather permits. This year I had two seniors graduate at one time from Texas High and imagine how hard that is not to see your relatives graduate, especially those who traveled so far and can't get in to see their love ones graduate. So please try and come up with a better solution for 2020.—S.L.H., Texarkana, Texas
CHEERS: To Democrats for standing up to Republican obstructionists. During Republican control billions are spent on wars and now the Wall. Democrats leave Treasury with surplus and Republicans squander it; and leave citizens to bear the cost of higher prices/taxes on necessities while nothing is being done to fix broken down infrastructures. These deplorable actions are destroying our country. We need to fight for USA and not fall to Russia/China caused by actions of our blind adoration of the "king."—D.S.B., Texarkana, Ark.
