Cuero ISD thanks community, sponsors for Gobbler back to school bash support

Dear Editor,
 
Our 3rd Annual Gobbler Back to School Bash was a great success. We had many parents, students and community members come out and bring in the new school year with Cuero ISD at the Cuero City Park.  This event would not have been possible without the support of our community partners and sponsors.
 
We would like to thank the following businesses and organizations for their donations: Weaver and Jacobs, Cuero National Bank, Grace Episcopal, Trust Texas Bank, HEB, Wal-Mart, 7C Unlimited, Ful-O-Pep, Badda Bling, TDECU, The Cooking Depot, Exibix, Inc. (formerly Sign-FX), First Baptist Church, Lifeway Baptist, Cuero Community Hospital, GVEC, McDonald’s, KN, Dr. Pepper, Sonic and Devon.

The Doll House remembered

[Editor’s note: Written by Shanna Kurtz at www.CancerCowboyBootsAndOtherDisguises.com]
 
I have to tell the story of this little cafe and what I remember of it because I am so afraid that the earth has shaken and moved and everyone is feeling it but no one is talking about it. This isn't just the musings of a concerned citizen but also a small tribute to my grandmother, and her brother, Rollie Brantley.

Dear Editor,
 
The Cuero Select Track Club athletes, committee members, parents and coach Tim would like to thank the community of Cuero, businesses, churches, family, friends, out-of-towners and everyone who played a role for their generous donations, contributions, support, words of encouragement and prayers to help us to be able to attend the TAAF Summer Games of Texas in College Station and the AAU National Junior Olympics in Hampton Roads, Virginia.

Where does the CDC get its money?

By Patrick J. Kennedy
Executive Director, Cuero Development Corporation
 
I’m frequently asked what the Cuero Development Corporation does and where do we get our money.  Simply put, the voters of the City approved, in the mid-1990’s, ½ cent of the sales tax remittance to be utilized for economic development. Our mission statement is to promote, develop, and enhance economic and community development. The seven (7) member board is appointed, and serves at the pleasure of the City Council.  
 
All members are appointed for a two (2) year term and must meet residency requirements.  
 
Presently, the Board of Directors are: Charles Papacek, President; Dennis Jemelka, Vice President; Will Carbonara, Secretary/Treasurer; Randy Jochim, Sara Post-Meyer, Mike Weaver and Richard Weber.
