Thumbs-up to native Victorian Debra J. Hilton for being nominated and chosen as a 2013 Five Star Wealth Manager as published in the September issue of Texas Monthly. Debbie is in the top 1 percent of financial advisers at LPL Financial in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. She is also ranked in A Financial Times "National Top 400" Financial Adviser in 2013.

THUMBS-DOWN

Thumbs-down to wasting water. In Friday's paper, the editorial "Ongoing drought brings more usage limits" states "any leaks must be repaired within 15 days of notification." I am all for the water restrictions; however, the city has had a water leak at the corner of Navarro and Convent streets for more than 45 days. Wonder how many thousands of gallons of water are wasted there?
