Thumbs-up to Victoria Precinct 3 County Commissioner Gary Burns and his staff for the excellent job they do maintaining our roads, ditches and drainage in Precinct 3. You guys are very much appreciated.
Thumbs-up to the Pearland Little League for winning it for Texas and going to the Little League World Series in Pennsylvania. They have new friends in Victoria who wish them well and hope they go all the way.
Thumbs-down to coming home every day and having to look at the city's Welcome To "ictoria" sign with weeds all grown up around it. Know what they say about first impressions ...
Thumbs-down to city of Victoria Maintenance Department for not doing the right thing and denying claim of damage caused by a city employee driving a city truck aggressively and swerving in front of us and cutting us off, causing our windshield to be cracked by flying debris. The claim was based on its facts revealed by investigation without contacting a witness who was a passenger in our vehicle. Watch out, Victoria.
Thumbs-down to the 6- to 6-foot alligator swimming at Sunday Beach at Port O'Connor. He spoiled a good time.
