Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to the wonderful drive-through light display at Mallette and Blyth in Victoria. You can walk around and take pictures to create memories. The kids will love it.

LaVerne, Victoria

Thumbs-up to Mike Burton and the Toyota of Victoria Service Department. The craftsmanship and integrity of the technicians and advisors is one of the reasons my family drives Toyotas exclusively.

Thumbs-up to the COVID-19 vaccine being delivered to Victoria.This is the beginning of a very important part of wiping out the deadly disease.

Thumbs-up to the Shiner and Hallettsville football teams for making it to the state final games. It takes a lot of hard work and determination to make it this far.

Thumbs-up to the many local businesses who have come together to provide Christmas gifts for children who may not otherwise have gifts this year.

Thumbs-up to Dennis Patillo’s salute to home cooking in his Wednesday food column. We agree there is nothing better than a hot fresh home-cooked meal.

Thumbs-up to Dr. Daniel Cano’s impassioned letter to the staff at Citizens Medical Center about why he is getting the COVID-19 vaccination.


Thumbs-down to many of the drivers in the Victoria area. The speeders, red light runners, tailgating, and no turn signaling. Seems to have gotten even worse since the COVID-19.
