Thumbs Up to Victoria Transit and all the personnel, especially Monica Flores, for taking time out of their busy schedule to provide the East and West High School Special Services students the opportunity to tour and ride on the Victoria Transit System. What a great learning opportunity for the students' future. Thanks!
Thumbs up to the combined VISD Middle School Orchestra for earning Division 1 ratings at UIL. Great Job!
Thumbs-down to the man in the blue Chevy truck trying to get our neighbor's dog to come across Depot street so he could take him. When he saw me watching him, he took off. There are plenty pets at the shelters looking for a home.
