Thumbs-up to the church at Callis and Odem streets, Greater Mount Calvary and the Food Bank. All such nice people who help give away food to the needy.

God bless you all.

Thumbs up for the Advocate subscribing to "Becker Bridge." It's an excellent column with meaningful challenges and clear explanations. It is a great improvement from previous bridge columns. It would be nice to have it printed in a larger font.
