What are you interested in? That's a topic we are always ready to talk about. As your community newspaper, we have a responsibility to bring you the latest news and help you understand what's important in your community. So tell us what you have an opinion about. We'll be happy to discuss it or publish your letter to the editor.

Every Wednesday, our Editorial Board meets in the Internet Cafe area of the Victoria Advocate at 1:30 p.m. to discuss the events of the previous week. If you can't come to the meeting in person, feel free to log on and watch our live webcast and comment in the online chat box. We look forward to seeing you there.
