Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to Trey Torres of the city of Victoria’s limb removal department for going beyond being courteous when helping a citizen with their tree limb problem.


Thumbs-up to the Salvation Army and the wonderful volunteers who helped prepare the food for the event and those in the community who donated food for the dinner. It was a great job!


Thumbs-up to UHV being a host for a great Mental Health Presentation! Neuroscience is so interesting, and this presentation by Randy Guttenberger, author of “Managing your Crazy Self!: Turning Your Turbulence into Tranquility” was so welcomed, fun and powerful! Thank you Dean Fred Litton and Dr. Smith for inviting such a great speaker to share useful tools with our area counselors and the community.


From the Advocate Editorial Board

Thumbs-up to the first residents moving into Promise Pointe tiny homes. They were built to provide affordable, long-term housing for people who are homeless or at risk of ending up on the street.

Thumbs-up to officials who are working to move 2 million pounds of super-heavy equipment that strayed off the roadway on SH 185 Monday. The northbound lanes will be closed for the remainder of the week.

Thumbs up to Port O’Connor librarian Shirley Gordon for 29 years of service to the library.

Thumbs-up to the Holiday Historical Homes Tour in Cuero that will allow people to tour the Proctor-Green House and the Hamilton-Oliver House.


Thumbs-down to the large chain drug stores that take so much from the Crossroads but don’t seem to participate or sponsor community events or even mow their grass.
