Another huge thumbs-up for all the roof workers doing their part to get this area back to some type of normal life. I have walked my neighborhood, stopped and watched these guy up on the roofs. They work a long 12-plus hours up there and don't slow down. Without them, where would we be? Just hope they are paid a good wage as they surely do deserve it.
Thumbs-up to the young woman ahead of me in the checkout line at Walgreens on Monday who paid for my purchases. You restored my Christmas spirit and my faith in the next generation. Merry Christmas to you and your sweet baby.
Thumbs-up to Ashley HomeStore and Habitat for Humanity ReStore for all they've done to help families recover from Hurricane Harvey.
Thumbs-up for all the area high school football teams who represented the area with their super performances in the state playoffs this year.
Thumbs-up to Keaton Warren's perseverance to overcome obstacles to graduate from college. Failure only comes when you stop trying.
Thumbs-up for Cole Ohrt and all the prayer warriors who are following his recovery. The Victoria/Mission Valley/Schroeder area is amazing at coming together to support families in need!
Allen, Mission Valley
Thumbs-up to the Walter Williams column in the Victoria Advocate. His views are so good due to his uncommonly good common sense. Love his column!
Thumbs-up to the H-E-B Feast of Sharing. Being one of the many volunteers at this year's feast, I just have to say something. This is probably one of Victoria's greatest events, and all involved appreciate H-E-B's time, effort and expense for all they do for this community.
Thumbs-down to the trashy collection of old vehicles, rocks, storm debris leftovers, etc., on Airline Road between the Islamic Center and the convenience store on Main Street. It is a huge eyesore. Our city should have some sort of code to prevent this without an eight-foot privacy fence around it. I can't believe some city officials have not done anything about it yet.
