It's going to be a cold and blustery Wednesday, Victoria Advocate readers. We hope you're staying warm as you enjoy your coffee and morning paper. We've had a busy week with plenty of topics to comment on. We've seen whooping cranes return to the region, a student who is battling a deadly disease and his freshman year of high school, a monstrous typhoon, an 11-year-old hero and much more.

Come join the Victoria Advocate Editorial Board in the Victoria Advocate newsroom conference room at 1:30 p.m. every Wednesday 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.
