Thumbs-up to the good people of the parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church who understand that a Christian far away from home because of economic necessity wants to stop long enough to hear the Gospel and continue on his or her way after contributing to the collection for the good church and its worthwhile community endeavors.

Thumbs up to the VA hospital. Audie Murphy has treated me for seven years, and they gave me several tests, and all I can say is I was treated very well, After I was diagnosed with lung cancer, they put me on oxygen, and they have supplied me with it ever since.

Thumbs-down to the Moody Street Post Office for needing to spruce up its appearance. No one straightens the blinds, cleans the bugs from around them or cleans the rug at the entry - very unkept looking. It is not appealing to visitors. Victoria city and county offices need to improve landscaping and spruce up, also.

Thumbs-down to the thumbs-down complaining that people were going to 8 a.m. Mass or any other time at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church and leaving before the last hymn was sung. The Gospel is the message, not the singing of the hymns. Refer to James 1:19-27.
