Thumbs Up - To Geoffrey Lind, for bringing Henrietta Hippo, the amphibious tour bus, and her fellow hippo buses to Victoria. What kid - or adult - wouldn't like a ride on a bus that can drive into the water?
Thumbs Up - To Marcus Davis of the Mount Douglas Rams, for being named Football B.C.'s triple-A player of the year. The receiver/running back tallied 2,457 all-purpose yards this season.
Thumbs Down - To farmers in California's Central Valley, for trying to get southern resident killer whales removed from the endangered list. The farmers want the ruling so they can divert more water from salmon rivers, which would reduce the whales' food supply.
Thumbs Up - To Ali Berman, for planning a teen expo in April. Berman hopes to bring resources ranging from clothing designers to retailers to Vancouver Island Sexual Health to help connect teens to their community.
Thumbs Up - To the Victoria Foundation, for providing the grant that will allow Our Place to extend its free-lunch program to weekends.
