Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to Bob Coleman and his letter in the From You section. Like Mr. Coleman, I am also tired of welfare recipients that pay absolutely nothing and were required to do absolutely nothing. I am an “old white gal” and am tired of handouts from my pocket.

Thumbs-up to Judy and Hank Gillespie who opened the Riding Therapy Center for kids and adults who could benefit from it. Thank you!

Thumbs-up to the the Port Lavaca Pride Incentive Grant that gave Twin Dolphins $10,000 to repair its marquee that was destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. The grant encourages businesses that face SH 35, Main Street or SH 238 in Port Lavaca to make visually appealing improvements by giving them between $5,000 and $10,000.

Thumbs-up to the food truck garden Curbside Cuisines for offering a variety of food options in a relaxed atmosphere. It offers a space where food trucks and diners are welcome to hang out.

Thumbs-up to Senior Patrol Officer Cody Maresh and his K-9 partner Cirix for making Victoria streets safer. The duo have nabbed fleeing criminals and uncovered vast quantities of smuggled drugs.

Thumbs-up to the veterans who served in D-Day. We greatly appreciate your sacrifices.

Thumbs-up to the Victoria Bach Festival for bringing concerts that explore Bach’s musical influence and contributions.
