1 Dak Prescott — Re: “Mark of the man — Above all else, exemplary character of Cowboys QB must be celebrated,” by Calvin Watkins, Feb. 11 SportsDay column.
I am from Dallas and a Cowboys fan, but not so much for the last 20 years. But I am a solid Dak Prescott fan. This young man lost his mom, then his brother, but he uses those events to help others.
This has nothing to do with why the Cowboys don’t win. This young man is an inspiration to young people and old people, like me. And now, he’s earned the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Bravo, Dak!

2 Dallas tax office — Re: “Officials feud over tax office closures amid staffing woes — Shortages have offices shutting once a week to catch up on work,” Jan. 25 Metro & Business story.
I would like to commend Dallas Tax Assessor-Collector John Ames and the tax office for the courteous and efficient way the office is run. Due to the unreliability of the U.S. mail, I find it better to visit the local branch office less than two miles from my house.
Even though the office is closed one day a week due to staffing problems as stated in this story, I have always found the employees there to be helpful and professional and the wait time very short.
This office should be praised, not vilified, for its professionalism and relations with its customers.

3 North Oak Cliff Branch Library — Three cheers to the North Oak Cliff branch of the Dallas Public Library for its Queen Elizabeth exhibit in the lobby. This timely exhibit reminds us of the dramatic change that’s coming when King Charles takes over Britain and its massive commonwealth of nations. (The exhibit runs through mid-March.)
