Thumbs-up to all the cities that have had Christmas events from Christmas in Goliad to the Yoakum tree lighting to the Port O'Connor Lighted Christmas boat parade. These are all fine examples of spreading Christmas cheer.

Thumbs-up to the city of Victoria for continuing to work on improving the city with its Capital Improvement Plan.

Thumbs-down to the Navarro Street. median. A colossal inconvenience to travelers, shoppers, and merchants combined. Our tax dollars used to make life more troublesome. Classic government mentality.
