• Lavaca County . . . the most unfriendly county in Texas unless your ancestors settled here, or you go to the right church.

    Don't expect county government to care enough to keep your substandard dirt / sand / pebble / large jagged rock and rutted roads maintained and repaired, and county easements mowed. Always make sure you have enough extra cash in your pockets to replace your vehicle tires when they are damaged by the jagged rocks and debris in the substandard roads.

    Do the right thing, help your neighbors, help strangers, help the needy, support your community by shopping locally, pay your taxes, but never expect your taxes to go to maintain your roads. They go to some unknown place.
