Tomorrow various neighborhoods in Victoria will get together to know their neighbors and officers of the Victoria Police Department's Crime Prevention Unit as part of National Night Out.

The event is set up as a big block party where homeowners are encouraged to get to know the people who live in their neighborhood, talk to officers from Victoria PD and share concerns with one another about the neighborhood safety.

When I was younger, we didn't have anything like this, but I think it's a great idea for homeowners to participate in. It seems fitting that our next nomination for GC is top neighbors. We have already received a number of nominations from people boasting about their neighbors from down the street or just next door. This is a great opportunity to recognize your neighbor for his or her contribution to keeping the neighborhood safe or helping out when you're not feeling your best.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, Oct. 21. Just write me a letter, no longer than one page about why your neighbor should featured in the January/February edition of the magazine. Maybe they put on a grand Halloween house for all the neighborhood kids to enjoy, or maybe your neighbor watches your four-legged friends or scaled friends when you are out of town, let me know what you think.

Email nominations to or mail them to Jessica Rodrigo/Top 5
