Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to the Victoria Police Department for the opportunity for citizens to learn more about law enforcement in our community and what it means to us. Being a member of Class No. 40 of the Civilian Police Academy, that just graduated, was truly an eye-opening experience. The dedication and extensive training all officers receive throughout their career is remarkable. Great job by all officers that presented classes from K-9 to SWAT and all in between. A special “Kudos” to officer John Turner, who organized and facilitated. Respectfully, Class #40.

Thumbs-up to the lady who found my purse in the basket at H-E-B Plus!. I put my plants that I had bought in my car and forgot about my purse. Thank you so very much for turning it in. Thank goodness for honest people.

Thumbs-up to the Victoria Senior Citizens Center for offering free tax assistance for people with low-to-moderate incomes and to the elderly. Thank you; it is so needed.

From the Advocate Editorial Board

Thumbs-up to Victoria County Farm Bureau Board of Directors for hosting its third annual Ag Day at the Jaycee Hall at the Victoria Community Center. It helped students learn the importance of agriculture.

Thumbs-up to Cuero High School and its students for hosting a blood drive to support Gabriel Ybarra and his upcoming heart surgery.

Thumbs-up to the Victoria Long-Term Recovery Group and partners who plan to build a $4.6 million, 40-house subdivision in Bloomington for Victoria County residents still struggling to recover after Hurricane Harvey.


Thumbs-down to property tax appraisals that are way out of whack. How can home values go up so high overnight? Certainty is death and taxes. Now the Victoria County Appraisal District wants to tax you to death.
