Public service editor Gabe Semenza keeps adding to our databases we have posted at

The newest additions are for Victoria County marriages and divorces, Crossroads lottery sales and winners, death records and restaurant inspections. All of these databases contain many years' worth of records.

We continue to publish the health department's restaurant inspections every Wednesday in the food section, of course. Our online database is meant to supplement this print coverage and allow you to dig deeper into the inspection history of your favorite eatery.

We like to think of this as the Advocate Extra you can get by being both a print and an online reader. We continue to look for ways these two mediums may complement each other. We hope you'll take Data Central out for a spin and let us know what you think.
