Thumbs-up to our county commissioner, Danny Garcia, for doing an excellent job in our community because you can see a lot of changes in the short time he has been in office. I believe a person should be given a lot of credit when he deserves it.
Thumbs-up to Marvin Brunner. The man has every right to protect his property. It is time for cat owners to take responsibility for their animals. Dog owners are held to a higher standard when it comes to restraining their dogs. Why are cat owners not held to the same standard? Cats can be more of a nuisance than dogs: urine, feces, destruction of property and attacking humans and other animals.
Thumbs-down on the banner in Cuero on Anita Perry. The banner read "First Lady Anita Perry" instead of "Texas First Lady Anita Perry."
Thumbs-down to police for not responding to minor traffic accidents. It will only work if both parties were honest; however, a lot of drivers will not be truthful, and the innocent one will suffer.
