Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice
Thumbs-up to all the folks from the Crossroads area and beyond who visited Cuero's Christmas in the Park. Your generosity helps acquire new scenes and for upkeep of our scenes. You all help make our Christmas, and we hope it adds to yours also. We look forward to seeing you in November and December.
Thumbs-up to the VISD Board of Trustees for speaking out with one voice in their vote against vouchers that are being pushed by some legislators in Austin. An internationally known educator labeled vouchers as a shameful way to segregate students. No one wins in this scenario.
