Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice

Thumbs-down to stores that advertise prices "with card" or "with membership," etc. Why make shopping more complicated, and who wants more junk to carry around in their wallet or purse? Just price things right for everyone.

Thumbs-down to the City of Victoria for letting the recreation softball/kickball fields go to a complete waste! I have played softball here for several years, and I have never played on a worse field! The whole outfield was soaking wet and a complete swamp. None of us paying money to play for fun should be getting hurt because of negligence to the playing fields. Why can't some of my tax dollars go to something being used every night? I'm completely fed up with this. Come help us ball players!

Scott, Victoria
