Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up and thank you to Dick’s Food Store for their short and no-nonsense cash register receipts. No frills, no ads, no surveys – unlike many other stores that only add to litter and landfill waste.

Thumbs Up to Port Lavaca Auto Group for their continued support of the Tree of Angels Ceremony.

Thumbs-up to the Crime Prevention Unit who left a note on my windshield to remind me to keep property out of plain view. We were in the Victoria Mall. Thank you. Great job!

Thumbs-down to TXDOT for not mowing the on and off ramps and crossover areas on our local roadways. This is a huge safety issue due to limited traffic visibility in those areas.

Thumbs-down to TXDOT for not pruning their planted trees between Loop 463 East and the on-ramp between John Stockbauer and Mockingbird. The same goes for the US 59S and US 77S (Goliad highway) intersection. Poor traffic visibility in those areas only adds to the poor and unsafe designs of these two ramp areas.

It makes me mad when all our stores Lowes, Home Depot, HEB, Malls, Walmarts ETC. Have at least 300 parking spaces. 150 have baskets in them. Come on people -take your blank baskets another 10 feet to the rack. Lazy rich and poor. Cant blame the stores. Look up America Let us park without getting out of to move basket . The Redman
