Driving force behind Pet Adoptions of Cuero

Dear Editor, 

Dear Friends and Followers of Pet Adoptions of Cuero,

So sad to report that Ron Ledbetter passed away on Wednesday, December 21.

For those that don’t know, Ron was the driving force behind the creation of Pet Adoptions of Cuero, Inc. along with wife Peggy.

He was the first to recognize the need for a fully operational adoption center in our fair city.

His efforts along with Peggy’s helped create a wonderful working relationship with Cuero’s animal control system.

Those efforts led to an outpouring of support from the community and the well established center we are blessed to have today.

Ron’s heart and goal was to see that all of God’s creatures were given a second chance at finding forever homes.

He was an inspiration to all of us volunteers that man/woman the shelter daily.

We have lost a great leader – someone who came forward and said “we can make a difference – let’s find a way.”

Cuero Blue Santa

Dear Editor, 

Cuero Blue Santa has had another successful year, providing Christmas joy for over 250 children. We would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to the Cuero community for their volunteer time and financial support. Without your help, we would not be successful.

A special thank you to Partners Chevrolet and Paul Holcomb, Jr. for allowing Blue Santa to use their building for gift wrapping and hosting the families for gift pick-up. Another special thank you goes to the community organizations and Cuero ISD students that helped wrap over 800 gifts. We were so proud of the number of youth that helped this year; it is truly a testament to the strength of our community.

Blue Santa is a wonderful organization, but without the community’s support we would not be able to help the multitude of families.

Again, we say Thank You! Cuero Blue Santa

Merry Christmas from the Boehls

Dear Editor, 

Merry Christmas to our dear family and friends! We are truly blessed to have each and every one of you in our lives.

This past year was a whirlwind for us. We spent countless hours praying, crying, and laughing. We learned a whole new vocabulary and met some really wonderful people. We could have never made it through our new lives with Leukemia without each and every one of you. It is because of your love, support, and prayers that we made it through the past 12 months and are looking forward to the Christmas Season and 2017. Every phone call, text message, email, card, and conversation means so much to us all; those are the little things that kept our heavy hearts light and alive through a very tough time. We are and forever will be grateful.

Moore agrees with Steen regarding McDonald’s sign

Dear Editor, 

I just want to agree with everything Jeff Steen had to say in his recent Letter to the Editor in the Cuero Record.

I had the same reaction the first time I saw the McDonalds eye sore of a sign or is it a sky sore?

Why anyone would attack Jeff for standing up is beyond me. Plus- to refer to people who were born and reared in Cuero as carpetbaggers is the height of stupidity. Even though some of us come from DeWitt County’s pioneering families, we have found our way out of the County- and still care about it.

Thanks for the Letter Jeff and keep up the good work. Root Beer for everyone!

Stanley Moore

Hall shares opinion on McDonald’s sign

Dear Editor, 

I will try not to take up almost half a page about this sign. This poor old horse has been ridden about in the ground long enough. Lighten up! It’s a sign. It’s there. It’s been there. It’s not going anywhere. There are far more important matters that should be addressed within our community than a 75 ft. sign that has been up for years and causing no great harm. Is it big? Yes. Does it dominate the sign line? Maybe, depends on who your talking to. The one thing for sure is that it is already there and if it helps our local Mc- Donald’s sell a few more burgers, that’s great.

Jeff Steen discusses McDonald’s sign

Dear Editor, 

Earlier this year I had the opportunity of spending some time in front of the Cuero City Council to discuss the 75 foot McDonalds sign that dominates the Cuero skyline.

A little history. Christmas Eve 1995 I was driving from Victoria after egg nog with my mom and headed to Westhoff to see my dad. As I crested the hill by Cuero High I was shocked to see the huge Golden Arches looming over the City.... While the homes, church steeples and Courthouse tower were covered with Christmas lights, the skyline was overshadowed by the McDonalds sign. I recall thinking at the time, how could this be?

The Cuero City Council and Mayor at the time must have thought the same thing.
