Victoria officials commit funding to save airport

Jill East Ross said,

"Victoria is growing is so many ways. Our airport needs to keep up. We should be adding a carrier instead of swapping one for another. If there were more choices, you would definitely see an increase in ticket sales. Offer it and people will come. That's what is going to make our airport grow. Starting over again and again with new carriers doesn't seem to do the trick. Passengers feel 'trapped' in not having a choice. Funding should be used to expand and market the airport as a place that is professional and at your service. Not the "I have no idea if I'll get to where I need to be" airport." - 18 hours, 34 minutes ago

Should private companies control birth control?

Wendy Patek Hughes said,

"Has anyone, besides myself, actually read all 95 pages of the SCOTUS ruling, INCLUDING the dissent by Bader-Ginsburg? It seems to me that the bulk of the arguments being presented on this thread are derived more from media sources (which are more often than not, biased one way or the other) than from actual fact. And not to put to fine a point on it... Plan B (aka "the morning after pill") can be purchased over the counter from any number of pharmacies provided you have a valid ID and are over the age of 18. The vast majority of insurance companies are moving away from paying for non-prescription medications, a move that is not indigenous only to companies such as Hobby Lobby.

Victoria officials commit funding to save airport

Bill Coons said,

"I do not fly often. My experience from Victoria was poor. Without electronic baggage scanning, my checked bag never left Houston. Upon return again my bag was lost. The ground staff in Houston found it quickly as I had taken a picture of my bag. Service from Houston was good, but I was the only passenger on the flight. I did not repeat the mistake this year. Caught a ride to Austin." - 23 hours, 42 minutes ago

Victoria officials commit funding to save airport

Tony Flores said,

"There are seven counties including Victoria with an estimated 2013 population of 194,286 , yet you seem to be struggling to make the airport a viable place to fly from........look at Tyler, Longview, San Angelo and Abilene as metros with similar populations and ask yourselves what makes them have better air service with better airlines. Look at their airport terminals. Victoria can and should do better for the people that live in the Crossroads but also for all the major industries located in the Crossroads. It would help to market the airport as a reason to visit the area not just to leave the area." - 1 day, 7 hours ago

Victoria officials commit funding to save airport

Jeff Williams said,

"I flew out of Victoria almost every week for a period of 5 years in the late 90's and early 2000's both before and after 911. The biggest challenge for a business traveler is making a connection. With a limited flight schedule it doesn't really matter where the destination is (Dallas, Austin or Houston) if there is not an early flight. At one point I was able to leave Victoria on Monday morning and walk into my office north of Atlanta by noon. Last time I looked at flying out of Victoria the earliest flight was mid-morning which essentially cost me an entire day to make any destination east or west of Texas. I hope the new carrier is looking at more flights with better departure times than have been available for a number of years." - 1 day, 16 hours ago

Jeff Birmingham said,

"Is this a joke! How much money have you all given the airport? The place is a dump; customer service is lousy! Sounds like the director isn't doing his job. No matter how many airlines you bring, it just doesn't work. Give the place to the law enforcement; I'm sure they could use it. Shut it down - a waste of money! I can't wait for the new Judge to step in!" - 1 day, 16 hours ago
