Fotiades applauds Rudy Michalek, Weber Motor Company

Dear Editor, 

It is no wonder that Weber Motor Company received the President’s Award for the 4th year in a row. Brake issues on your vehicle can be a serious problem. This was duly noted when I called Weber Motor Company recently to make an appointment to have my brakes fixed. Feeling that the issue was not urgent, I made an appointment for the next day and planned to continue with my drive out of town that day. Rudy Michalek, being the awesome, caring leader that he is, said, “Before you go out of town, why don’t you just come by the dealership, and we will do a quick inspection to be sure that it will be safe for you to travel.”

‘Thankful for being here this long’

Dear Editor, 

I don’t want to take up to much of your time, but I will be 85 Years old this November 2016, and am thankful for being here this long. I have been involved in so many things in Cuero in the past, and am proud to have done what it took to get Cuero recognized. Anyway what I have to say now should be noticed. My son-in-law, who I am proud, of ran for City Councilman in 2012 and he won. His mission was to get a place where the kids in Cuero can go to have fun and learn. He did; he worked hard to put a committee together, and to arrange meetings.

Tree of Honor

Christmas in the Park 

Preparations for the December Events Committee’s (DEC), an ad-hoc committee of the Cuero Development Corporation, Christmas in the Park, began several months ago, and continues, with the changing out of the light bulbs, and putting together new scenes, by volunteers, the City, and the Community Squad from the Stevenson Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. This is a huge task, but hopefully will get better as the DEC established that all new scenes purchased will only include LED bulbs. Further, funds have been budgeted to continue the conversion over to LEDs.

My time has come to say good-bye

BY TIM O’MALLEY

They say that all good things must come to an end. What some don’t say is there are many good things to come. I write this column with mixed emotions of excitement and a heartfelt loss to all those who have crossed my path and made this life journey an adventure worth while.
