Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice
Thumbs-up to those Victoria subdivisions who maintain their street-side easements. The dilapidated wooden fences and weeds of some of our neighborhood/city right-of-ways certainly makes driving Victoria's streets less than a "beautiful" experience.
Thumbs-up to Daniel Gonzales for being named 2011 Male Recurve Bowman Archer of the Year and all his other archery achievements. Proves kids can excel in a safe sport that does not involve a ball and the skills can be used outside of competition for a lifetime.
Thumbs-up to the writer and photographer of the beautiful iconostasis at the All Saints Orthodox Mission.
Thumbs-down to City of Victoria charging people to watch Little League games at complex. That is a city park, paid for by Victoria taxpayers. Why charge them twice?
