Thumbs-up for the Holiday Express Christmas train. It was so much fun! For anyone who hasn't taken their kids yet, be sure to catch it when it comes through our area next year. It is so worth it!

Thumbs-up to Victoria Strong and the resolve to recover from Hurricane Harvey.
Thumbs-up to the victims of sexual harassment stepping forward, and big thumbs-down for the deluge of poor behavior by the perpetrators who have leveraged their positions of influence for immoral purposes. This despicable behavior is unacceptable and needs to stop immediately. No excuses, no looking the other way.
Thumbs-up to Edna, Goliad, Yorktown, Yoakum, Cuero and Refugio continuing their runs through the high school playoffs. Good luck and best wishes to you all.
Thumbs-up on Texas A&M hiring Jimbo Fisher away from Florida State! Greatness!
Thumbs-up to Victoria Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker, which will be performed at the Leo J. Welder Center from Dec. 7 to Dec. 10. This is our holiday tradition!
Thumbs-down on the as of yet unfulfilled promise by President Donald Trump to help all those in need who suffered from the damages of recent hurricanes that affected our country.
Let us never forget the words which will be repeated to all on the Day of Judgment: "Whatever you did to the least of my brothers, you did it to me."
