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

Thumbs-down to the parents who try to avoid the long car line and pull into Belltower subdivision and do illegal turnarounds on the street. You are making it more congested for the actual residents who live there and are endangering the kids who ride/walk to De Leon.
Thumbs-down to all who replied "no" to if they were involved with agriculture. If you eat, you are involved with agriculture. If you wear clothing, you are involved with agriculture, etc. One hundred percent of the population is involved with agriculture. Just because you live in the city, does not exempt you from participating in agriculture.
Thumbs-down to the individuals who bring dogs into public stores. Animals are not meant to shop in public stores.
Thumbs-down to the Victoria DA Stephen Tyler and Police Department for allowing one of their officers to refuse a breathalyzer test. Then they claimed they couldn't obtain a warrant to draw blood. But I bet if it was a citizen of Victoria, they would have had us on the ground, doors propped open and charged.
