Welcome back to Wednesday, Advocate readers! The Crossroads has had a busy week, complete with plenty of rain Friday night to help moisten the dry, parched land. We have another long list of interesting stories to discuss, including the state of rivers in the Crossroads, the next Adopt-A-Beach cleanup effort 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.
