Hello, dear readers. We're back for another Wednesday. At this week's Editorial Board meeting, we'll have a couple of guests. Victoria County Judge Don Pozzi and Trey Ruschhaupt with the Victoria Airport Commission will be joining us to discuss the decision to change air service carriers at the Victoria Regional Airport. We hope you'll join us to hear the discussion and learn more about what is happening at our county airport.
