Thumbs-up to Julie Zavala, definitely one of the most caring persons ever. We need more like her.
Thumbs-up to the excellent new exhibit at The Museum of The Coastal Bend, "Cattle Boom." This is a must-see for everyone in our area. People of all ages will enjoy.
Thumbs-up to the local Crossroads Community Band and its director, Jay Lester, for a wonderful spring concert May 4 at the Victoria Fine Arts Center. The Victoria area is full of wonderful talent.
Definitely worth attending.

Thumbs-up for the city council passing the "No Smoking" in public places.
Now, let's pass another ordinance that prohibits cell phones from all public places, especially doctors' offices and restaurants - very rude people, and very inconsiderate.
Thumbs-down to another drought. I feel for our area farmers and ranchers. Pray for rain, lots and lots of it.
