Thumbs-up to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Highway dedicated in Victoria Tuesday after a nearly 40-year effort to recognize the civil rights hero.
Thumbs-up to the Victoria Area Homeless Coalition for opening the warming shelter Saturday and Sunday, and for providing transportation for those needing shelter.
Thumbs-up to Victoria Transit for its return to almost full capacity after a fire destroyed half of its buses in 2017.
Thumbs up to Port O’Connor’s new library that offers books and games. The grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting is at 10 a.m. today.
Thumbs-down to Blake Farenthold who refuses to pay back the $84,000 he stole from the taxpayers! He should be prosecuted for theft. A thief belongs in jail.
Thumbs-down to both the Democrats and Republicans! They should work together to solve the problems we are facing right now in our country. Forget acting like stubborn little kids and act like mature adults who are willing to work for the best interests of our country.
Thumbs-down to all those drivers that put other drivers at risk by not turning on their headlights when it’s foggy.
