• Maybe if a neon boot sign had been planned, Mr. Moster wouldn't have been fired. Seems like he wanted to improve the theater and with that intice more business for Victoria. Too bad that originality will get you fired in this town.

  • A big thank you to Mr. Rachid and the Victoria City Council. Hats off to supporting the arts!

    I continue to add my congrats and support to the good job that Mr. Rachid and the rest of the board do at the Theatre Victoria. I look forward to many great seasons to come.

  • Interesting that Omar Rashid, the theatre board president, continues to heap criticism on Charles Moster. Rashid is known to be a micro manager of any board he has sat on (i.e. Red Cross, specifically), so Rashid admitting that Moster submitted the funding request without board approval seems odd. Did Mr. Moster have to get board approval for every thing? It appears that this funding request could have been an un-encumbered request for funds for the good of the theatre and now Mr. Rashid continues place blame on an individual who has little or no way of defending himself.

    I continue to agree with Mr. Hewitt's statement of having Mr. Rashid also removed from the board. If Mr. Rashid won't resign as president of the board and from the board itself, then the theatre board should take the necessary steps to remove Mr. Rashid from the board completely.

    Mr. Rashid appears to be an individual that shoots first and asks questions later and then leaves debris in the wake of his incompetence as a board member.

  • Not to mention that the town's director of streets decided to tear into two major thoroughfares at the same time. Another town government SNAFU. Who hires these supposedly knowledgeable people?

  • I have to agree with justataxpayer. Its another gift from Santa Willie and the Rain-Dears. You want to spend money?, Try turning on the street lights on the 2 miles of Laurent where 25% of the lights are out. Or on Airline where one block has four lights and three are out. Perhaps replace street signs that you cannot read. Thats probally to much good for the citizens of Victoria.

  • No, justataxpayer, the owners of the Pump House are not getting a free parking lot. They are already paying for parking spaces for the restaurant on their property, and had planned to do this from the beginning.

    The citizens of our community are getting an opportunity to partner with a local business that will pay additional money for community access parking spaces. Parking spaces that will serve people who use the facilities on that end of the park including the disc golf field, pump track, canoe trails and the Texas Zoo.

    Hats off to our City Council on a great win-win opportunity!
