Thanks to all the pageant sponsors

Dear Editor,

The Miss Yorktown Royalty Pageant held this past Saturday was quite eventful. Malarie Rodriguez and Whitney Schroeder did a fine job in bringing this event back to the community and showcasing our youth. Amy Lamprecht and Lorene Migura were also helpful in this project. The 24 contestants did a great job in their opening line dance performance and with their questions on stage with emcee Brother Gary Moses of Victoria. Too bad they can’t all be crowned, because they are all winners. It was very entertaining and we look forward to next year being bigger and better.

'Judge, I am short, but I can be brief'

By Patrick Kennedy
CDC Executive Director
 
When I give presentations I usually start off with a tale that happened a few years ago. I was in charge of a multi-county project that required me to attend various City Council and Commissioners Court meetings. This one particular county I noticed that the item was further down the agenda so I walked in while the meeting was already in progress.  
 
When I arrived the Commissioner’s Court was in a contentious discussion with the Sheriff. It got so heated that the County Judge called for a brief recess. When the court resumed the Judge noticed my presence and called upon me. He said “Pat, can you be short?” I replied “Judge, I am short, but I can be brief.” After laughing, the Commissioner’s Court approved the item.

'Beaming with pride'

Dear Editor,
 
Pet Adoptions of Cuero is beaming with pride over the wonderful new and so many friends that have come forward to support the non-profit, all volunteer pet shelter organization. 
 
Last week a team from Lone Star 4-H club came by the new facility at 407 U.S. Highway 183 South with a van load of pet food and shelter supplies. Special thanks to this group for helping with the daily needs and care of the cats and dogs at the shelter, all looking for forever homes. Assisting with the delivery were Bishop and Fallon Whitt. As noted, this group is just one of many in our community who have helped the shelter meet the continual requirements of food and funds that keeps this organization running 365 days a year. Thank you to everyone in the club who participated in the shelter drive.

Cuero citizen thanks Lantz Tire

Dear Editor,
 
A big thank you to Lantz Tire. I locked my keys in my car. I called the Sheriff’s Dept. They gave me two numbers to call. One did not answer. The other did not open locked cars. I called a friend and she said to call Lantz. They were there in 20 minutes.
 
It was a Saturday morning also. Thanks again Lantz Tire for coming to my rescue.

Perception or high electricity rates

Dear Editor,
 
I am not one to write letters to the editor. As a matter of fact, I think this is the first one I have ever written in my life. I am writing in response to the letter regarding the electric rates within the City of Cuero. There is a perceived notion that because there is a monopoly on the electrical distribution and power costs within the city that it must be more expensive than anything else out there. That is just not the case.   When comparing what you pay in Cuero to what your friends in Yoakum, Victoria, or San Antonio pay, don’t ask them how much their total bill is. It is virtually impossible to have two identical houses in two different towns to compare.

Dreyer wants better utility prices

Dear Editor,
 
Stop sitting on the couch complaining about the utility bill, wondering how you are going to pay it.
 
A united front is needed to impress the necessity of change to the Council. What are the council members for the City of Cuero (elected by the citizens) willing to do to reduce the utility bills?
 
Something I did not know is that you have to have the approval of three council members before you can be on the agenda for the Council meetings.
 
The City of Cuero has signed a 25 year contract with LCRA. Who signs 25 year contracts? There must be alternative options so the citizens of Cuero can afford to live here. If you check the surrounding towns, their utility bills are not nearly what the average homeowner pays in Cuero.

'You shall reap what you sow'

Dear Editor,
This message is for the public on behalf of the Outreach for Souls Church, 702 E. Broadway Street. Our church and church grounds are dedicated for Godly worship. Please stop littering on God’s property. These outrageous acts of disrespect are not pleasing in the sight of God. Remember, you shall reap what you sow, whether good or evil.
Sincerely,
Outreach for Souls Church
