Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to Moulton resident Doris Lala. We went to Moulton to eat at Kloesel’s Steakhouse for our 46th anniversary. When I was getting ready to pay my bill, we found out our meal was paid by her. Thank you so much. It was a nice surprise.

Thumbs-up and thank you to Ron Sitka for telling us about the Ranch Golf Course in Kennedy. There is a lot of history there. I have played golf for 60 years and have always enjoyed playing other courses. Looking forward to playing there.

Russell, Port Lavaca

Thumbs-up to the Hope Child Advocacy Center for helping restore the lives of abused children. It is so needed. They are carrying the weight of what has happened to them, but when they are able to talk about it and have someone to share it with really helps them.

LaVerne, Victoria

Thumbs-up to Hobby Lobby for their full-page patriotic tribute on Independence Day and their continued Christian witness as well. God bless them!

Jane, Refugio


Thumbs-down to the city of Victoria Parks Department. The duck pond has been blocked off and drained for months, and there hasn’t been any work done to it yet. It looks terrible. When is something going to be done to improve it and complete it?

Thumbs-down to mishandled funds for Hurricane Harvey work at the airport. Disappointed in the powers that be. 400,000 thumbs down, so far.

Thumbs-up to the Rev. Paul Kirchner for his 40th anniversary of pastoring with Martin Lutheran Church. Members threw him a surprise celebration to honor their beloved minister.

Thumbs-up to Hope Advocacy Center for expanding to help more children. The center services Victoria, Jackson, DeWitt and Goliad counties.

Thumbs-up to the Alcoa Foundation for funding the Digital Simulation and Robotics Summer Camp at the University of Houston-Victoria this week. The camp was one of several that was funded by the foundation.
