They will be asking for a new bond this spring more than likely
920,000$ to PLAN!!!!! Everything that is wrong with Public Education in one sentence. Well jot everything, but a big one. No wonder they fight school choice so hard!
Frank -- "Nobody gets anything free in this country ..." -- That's absolutely correct. All the mass quantities of freebies flung about are paid for by someone, generally actual U.S. citizens who work for a living.
Brian -- I'm even more glad now that we didn't pass the last school bond issue.
Where's the other $460,000.00 going?
First of all, I believe the Advocate reporting is a lot like Chris Wallace as a moderator! Second, I would like some of whatever was given to Biden to be able to talk. Third, I wish Trump would have mentioned all he has done for African Americans, how business went overseas when Biden was Vice-President, and how Biden is FOR abortion through the full 9 months , for ANY reason. Is the Advocate going to fact-check or try to find out if Biden had an earpiece?
Watch over all of us from heaven. Especially Uncle Louis, Roberta, Louis Jr., Roxanne, and your precious grandchildren. We will all miss you so much, Aunt B.B., you will live on in our hearts forever. WE ALL LOVE YOU .
What is the message the Advocate is sending when they choose a politically biased cartoon based on a lie and aimed at destroying our faith in both our postal service and our democracy? What was your point? This is negligent and irresponsible. Maybe even shameful. What’s happening, VA?
Well said, Frank. It’s a privilege to live in a country where citizens can express their political views without fear from the government. Let’s keep it that way. Your vote is your voice.
I miss you so much Mom, I love You!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU ON SEPTEMBER 30! WISH YOU WERE HERE.
Love, Mother, Donna, Mike, Linda and Charlie
We now have the nose police.
My deepest condolences to all the family during this difficult time! She will be missed and will
Always remember her visits and her good cooking especially the tamales. Rest In Peace and rejoice with the Lord! The family will be continued to be in my prayers.
Miss Mary was one of the sweetest most caring persons that I have ever met in my life even though I only knew her for but a short time I always have her in my heart and she will always be one of my favorite customers
Most leave their nose out so they can breathe nothing more.
I am old enough to remember the Duke of Duval county and people voting from the grave in the LBJ election. Remember the secret ballot?
Heck, anyone can sign on your credit card too.
How much money did the DNC pay the Advocate to run this hit piece?
I had the same experience the shrimp boil was like eating jerky way over cooked and when I said something to the staff they acted like on big deal.
Our thoughts and prayers to the family.. 🙏 ORTIZ FAMILY
Hi Glen, Thanks for your comment. The decision not to require masks in polling places was made by Gov. Abbott. He exempted polling places and houses of worship in his statewide mask mandate. Here's the full text of his executive order: https://gov.texas.gov/uploads/files/press/EO-GA-29-use-of-face-coverings-during-COVID-19-IMAGE-07-02-2020.pdf. The order does not that masks are "strongly encouraged" for voters, but stops short of requiring them. Let us know if you have additional questions!
Thank you, Pat! There's a lot of fine print to read through so just hoping this can make the system a little more legible for folks.
I’ll never stop there again. One waitress and management with an attitude. It took me nearly an hour to get out of that place. I mentioned that to a manager and got a so what response.
Well I can remember him having his way with me under a truck that my dad had when I was only 6 so thats that I wish I would have been there to see his Karma
Martin, I agree.
Always such a fine and caring person.
Our Deepest Sympathy,
....Leland and Cathleen Schroeter
Patsy will be missed for her kind and caring spirit, among many other capabilities.
...Leland and Cathleen Schroeter
Glen or Janice Ullman
Wouldn’t it be prudent to require mask to enter building? We are no better off now than during the shutdown, virally speaking? ...Glen Ullman
Love the paper and all that you have done with it but PLEASE get rid of the obnoxious popup that hit us during login. :)
Really, Roy? If you had a serious medical problem would you prefer to be worked on by someone with an appropriate degree or would a high school grad be good enough?
"When they pulled out of The Texan and entered the right southbound lane on North Main Street, they heard motorcycles approaching and were rear-ended by one of them" -- This strongly suggests that the driver of the truck entered the lane right in front of the motorcycles instead of waiting for them to pass, which would have been the safe and legal thing to do. Given the questionable circumstances I expect that Mark Rosenberg will be following up on this story. Thanx, Mark.
Good job explaining this process, Ciara. Lots of good options available and the Victoria County Election Office works very hard to accommodate voters.
Refugio County 'respectfully' posted a 40.8% census completion score? Nice!
A little disappointed that this story leaves out some key facts, and outright misses a couple. The final score was 15 - 8, not 17 - 7 .......
The last "heave" was not "broken up" ..... it was an outright interception, and the young man that intercepted the ball could have easily ran the ball in to tack on a few more points, but he did the sportsman like action of running a few steps after he intercepted the ball, then took a knee since the clock was sitting on 00:00 .......
Roy, "Even you or I could run for the President of the US." -- That might be an improvement given the candidates we've been offered by both sides in this cycle and the previous one, especially the one recycled into a VP candidate.
Dearest family of Mary,
I consider your mom, sis, aunt to be one of my dearest friends. She was an inspiration and testimony of her great faith in God and her love of life. I will miss her very much. She is now safe in the stems of Jesus. May she rest in peace, may the perpetual light shine upon her. She is smiling in heaven, the angels are with her.
My deepest condolences to such a wonderful family! Mrs. Blanton will be greatly missed and always remembered. Just a beautiful, kind, witty soul!
Leonard, we will never know. The advocate very rarely follows up on a story.
I am still waiting on the swimming pool story.
Martin, people with a masters degree and or doctorate degree is supposed to
These people are just making it up as they go along just like we do.
Glenn, I really don't know if the job is even open to our local department.
And again, I don't know what the qualifications are to even apply.
Even you or I could run for the President of the US.
Trump supporters should look up Malcolm Nance. He is a Navy vet of the 80s and 90s who was in Naval Intelligence, and says he survived 3 assassination attempts. He is on many Youtube videos and is fun to listen to. He has books out on Russian election hacking and evidence that Trump is a Russian asset. He "knows" and I believe him.
Thank You Rick.
Roy -- The entire country is a much deeper talent pool than Victoria, TX. Did anyone local that can compete with these candidates apply for the position?
Where do you purchase tickets?
These kids don’t deserve the country we’ve handed them.
Juana Smith there are a lot of people who feel exactly as you do, including me. People have heard and seen, and they know. Today marks 40 days and 40 nites until the election. Those that have not already, should be scrambling to lose the Trump anchor to ride the Biden boat. Thanks for speaking out....Glen Ullman
I can only hope that more responsible people have seen the light.....Today,500 generals came forward...https://news.yahoo.com/joe-biden-endorsed-trump-excoriated-093014671.html...a month or so ago several former national security advisers warned us of Trump......Cheating is all Trump has left.
Why don't they promote within the department to fill the position?
Let's hope these same students do not infect their family members. Especially grandparents or those with underlying conditions.
Sad the Grand old party has been reduced to Trump status. At this point the only thing they can conserve is the denial of truth. Trump advised people to vote twice just so he will have something to point back at and cry foul. If he can not provide confidence in our vote, he fails the most basic expectations of the people...Glen Ullman.
thank you for your service dean harwell and for supporting president trump, our only and i mean only hope for staving off socialism to come. hooyah!
Trump’s lack of respect and his mealy mouth have been on display for a long time now. He has demeaned anyone that has questioned his actions or words, including his own family members, and his own presidential appointments. He has divided our nation to the point of conflict. The military and the rest of America consists of both Democrats and Republicans. His slander and disrespect of all things Democrat has put our countries people at odds with each other, for no good reason, except to advance his own foul agenda. The GOP should have had his resignation a long time ago....Glen Ullman
This is all for show inasmuch as pro-birth advocates had these provisions passed years ago. When will the Crossroads see whar a fruad Michael Cloud is.

I don't understand how anyone is surprised by this in the middle of a pandemic.
Talk about uninformed! The article originated in the Atlantic magazine, why would he newspapers or CNN have to retract? Jonathan Goldberg, the original author of the article knows the identity of the anonymous source and deemed him credible. Other news outlets like Fox News did the same thing....An anonymous source gave us Watergate.
Trump responded in his own words that he was so upset about not going to the ceremony that he called his wife. Why would Trump need to call his wife - she was with him on the trip. Believe Trump’s own words.
Wow! Some really good candidates up for the job of Chief Of Police. Master degrees, and a doctorate. I actually am impressed with all three of the gentlemen but I have a feeling that Roberto Arredondo Jr. would be the best fit for Victoria.
Lisa, they do not care about poor women and their unborn or newly born babies. They agreed with Trump to put babies in cages.
This is unneccessary and punitive to women without means.
but what happened today that required 3 sheriffs cars and 2 city patrol cars on Navarro?
what a shame.....a few destroys the hopes of the many
My condolences to Pam, the family and friends. I’m sorry to hear of your loss. You’re in my prayers and thoughts 🙏🏽
Dang, I hate not being able to edit my comments.
Thanks Glen, I used the term “approaching” loosely, I am still a couple months away form my birthday.
I left out the part about the GOP legislators enabling this president because they are either afraid of being the target of his tweets. In the case of cabinet members, they don’t want to be fired.
The new GOP model is one of complete distrust of our government and anything not Pro-Trump. They are super paranoid.
Exactly, John Guevara, exactly. Thank you.
Define “virtually nobody.” Do the math. Then think of a better term. Everybody? Majority? Some? What is a better term to use based on the number of infections? More people have been hurt by job losses than the virus would have hurt. Simple mathematics. While it’s terrible that anyone gets sick, I mathematically agree with the statement by the President. However, if Biden was President the virus would have magically disappeared as he through implication of his comments towards the President not acting fast enough.
Happy birthday in advance Mike. Thanks for sharing your wise perspective of the situations we face. It’s refreshing to hear from others that read between the lines, and potentially helps others to sort out the chaos...I certainly hope that our veterans are the most likely to know how important it is to have a leader that at the very least would not demean 60 percent of the country, knowing that those people are In our military, Police, FBI,CIA,etc.etc.etc..Trump can’t figure it out, and his crew is too scared to tell him...Glen
We were greatly sorry to hear that Elsa had passed away. I worked with Elsa for many years at Citizens Medical Center Pharmacy. Elsa was a wonderful person who always had a smile on her face. She was full of life and had a heart of gold. We are
sure she will be missed by many people. May God bless the entire Aguirre family
during your time of loss.

Thanks again qt for your comments always inciteful, thoughtful, thorough and bold. We must always call out the perfidious evil that is blm inc. and the easy marks who either dont know its destructive goals, or conveniently overlook them, or are in lockstep with the violence it perpetrates.
Hi momo, this is Katherine, I just wanted to say that I love and miss you already, I’m sorry I didn’t get to see you often I wish I gotten to see you more momo but you’re still in my memorys ): I love you
Donald Trump has convinced evangelical Christians to accept a platform based on this very successful strategy; “If you repeat the same lies over and over again to evangelical Christians they will remember those repeated lies as truths.
"As the U.S. hits 200,000 COVID-19 deaths, Trump tells an Ohio rally the coronavirus 'affects virtually nobody'"
-The Week/Yahoo News 9/22/20
If we had to fact-check all of things Trump says we would never get to sleep.
Right on, Leonard. For those with lawns and plants, which is most of us, this provides a perfect end of summer pick-up and recovery.
oclosed, Oh My!
Semper fi marine, thank you for your service. And for reminding us of cnn's and similar alliances treason.
Susan you were loved by so many. I will miss you and out conversations about Carrie and the concert we enjoyed together in Tulsa. We have lots of memories with all the cousins. Gone too soon, but now you are healthy again. Love you cuz!! 🙏🙏❤️❤️
Sure am happy this is not a real storm.
RIP. Aunt Mary

Thank you very much for your service Wayne 🇺🇸

Great letter. I enjoyed reading it.
Covid is very much alive in victoria tx!
Pray for a safe effective vaccine please...
Vote libertarian. Our only hope
While Jorgensen is my choice, I do love how easily it is for the President to trigger people. Ban all Muslims, really?
Please people cover your mouth AND nose:)
Could not agree more Marilyn. The Trump herd mentality. The herd seems to have a hard time realizing that their not the only gun loving Christians, with deep respect for our freedoms, safeguards, and our capitalist system. Most Democrats are as American as apple pie. A lot of Republicans have worked and fought along side a lot Democrats for a few hundred years now, and I expect it will continue for a few more. We need a new leader that is capable of recognizing and respecting that we are all Americans, Christian or not....Glen Ullman
Biden tends to get a pass on the things he says. At least from some outlets, while Trump doesn’t. Just my observation.
The above is his quote. It implies no deaths
Communist and Socialist Leaders appoint themselves as “Rulers for Life”. The history books are full of men like Putin, Kim and Hitler who once in power garnished “all power”. Republicans are okay with Trump staying in office for life up until AOC becomes President.
Rick I have never heard by and say that under his administration no one would have died. Can you send me a link? I’ve heard Trump say that he bears no fault, he did all he could and his bans saved millions of lives...” It is what it is. “
What a great America, every thing Trump and his Republicans couldn’t do in his first term.
You did have the ability to make a decision to not travel.
And if the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive,” Biden
If Biden was President nobody would have died, according to him. He has magic powers apparently
Most likely my thoughts would be on the natural disaster.😁
