Victoria’s downtown power restored

VICTORIA, Texas – On Tuesday, Jan. 25, in the morning there was a large power outage in downtown Victoria. When power outages happen, AEP customers have access to an online outage map. The AEP said in a statement they found out about the issues and located most outages in the south side and downtown area. A spokesperson with a Prosperity Bank in downtown said there were three customers in the lobby when the outage occurred. Taking their company’s policy into consideration, they escorted the customers out of the building. Most importantly, they referred these three customers to other banks within the branch.

Scarce supply of products means empty shelves

There’s something missing in grocery stores. Or, more aptly, there’s a lot of somethings missing. Walk up and down the supermarket aisles. There’s one thing that stands out more than the brightly colored packaging and smiling mascots begging you to buy their products, and that’s the pockets of stark white empty shelves.

Scratch Tickets With The Most Unclaimed Jackpots

Just a couple of weeks ago, A $100,000 Top Prize lottery scratch-off was sold in Victoria this morning and shortly after, was redeemed at the local Lottery claim center. The claimant chose to remain anonymous. The store it was sold at is a store that I frequent. So I asked if lottery tickets sales have picked up since the winning ticket was sold. The answer was a resounding, yes! I mean, they have a big new fancy sign that says, 'we sold a winning lottery ticket'
