A big double thumbs-up to Victoria West Winderguard. They took second place out of a field of nine in Bryan last month. These students have worked hard for this and deserve our support entirely.
I want to thank Jeff Williams from Bible Book Store for changing my flat tire on a cold and windy Saturday morning.

Thumbs-up to Alisa Villarreal. What a wonderful person she must be.
Trish, Port Lavaca
Thumbs-down to the NFL and players; they need to get out in the real world and try to make it on regular wages, not the millions they make for playing a game. Also, to Charlie Sheen, get him off every magazine, newspaper and TV show - just let him get lost.
