Ranging Reporter J.R. Ortega kicked it into high gear at Ramsey's Restaurant after a nearly two-week vacation. It was nice to see the restaurant's loyal customers and its new ones. Thursday's question focused on the University of Houston-Victoria bringing in a six-team softball tournament to help boost Victoria and UHV's image and economy.
A: "I would say that we have a community center and it doesn't seem it would draw outside interest."
Thelma Smith, Telferner, retired
A: "Support the university so it can boost revenue for the city."
Debra Lozano, Victoria, nurse
A: "Put Gary Moses back in charge of the parks department, so we can get all the event going that we use to have on the weekends."
David VanLeeuwen, Victoria, semi-retired
A: "Encourage people to show up not only from a business standpoint."
Phillip Wilson, Victoria, semi-retired
