Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to the Advocate for a great Valentine’s Day edition, highlighted by a wonderful letter from Terry Koehler, and the omission of any portion of USA Today with its constant negativity and opinion pieces thinly disguised as news articles.

John, Victoria

Thumbs-up to Theatre Victoria for the wonderful production of “9 to 5” Saturday night. It was a real Broadway experience. Thank you for a wonderful night out.

LaVerne, Victoria

Thumbs-up to the Transit Bus Line we have in Victoria. I have to use a walker and I can’t drive, so I rely on them to take me to doctor’s appointments or wherever I need to go. God bless them!

Alton, Victoria

Thumbs-up to U.S. Rep. Michael Cloud for his exceptionally well-written column on congressional spending. I appreciate how he gives examples to demonstrate his points. Thanks, Victoria Advocate, for publishing!

Mary Ann, Moulton

Thumbs-up to the depolarization workshop that will take place Saturday morning that will use family therapy principles to address the political divide.

Thumbs-up to Dr. Yusuke Yahagi who has treated patients and played music to packed crowds in the Crossroads. Yahagi is leaving Victoria in April to be closer to family.
