Fall is in the air in Cuero

For the City of Cuero, work continues with several street projects as well as improvements in the Municipal Park and golf course. The 2016- 2017 budget was approved by Council and includes a penny increase in the tax rate to $.33/$100 of valued property. The budget includes continued improvements to the parks system, refurbishment of the library, street improvements including sidewalks to help this community become more walkable, and moving of the public works departments to the new facility on W. Sarah St. by the end of 2016. This move will open several areas in the park for development for citizens’ activities in the park.

Cuero citizen thankful for “Pets Are People Too”

Dear Editor, 

I recently lost my beloved border collies to old age. If not for Myra Trevino of Pets Are People Too in Cuero, I don’t know what I would have done. Before their passing, I had to leave for an emergency out of town and didn’t want to board them (because of their age) but had no choice. I contacted Myra and she said, “No problem, bring them over.” Even in their old age, she gave them the extra TLC they needed (they were 14-years-old).

Mari’s Tattle Tells: “You can always come home again”

Sitting here flipping through a circular from the old Perry’s store inserted into a yellowing copy of The Yorktown News, it’s easy to get nostalgic. While the oilfield boom has helped bring in new businesses, restaurants and motels, a few of us “old timers” still remember the good old days in the 1970’s and 80’s.

DeWitt County history

Dear Editor, 

The goal of the DeWitt County Historical Commission in presenting “Lives Remembered” last Saturday [Sept. 24] was to educate the audience about life in past years, and we certainly did that! The show had just begun, and the first story teller had taken the stage when a thunderstorm rolled in. The electricity went off! No lights, no microphones, no slide show, no musical accompaniment, and no air conditioning. It wasn’t so long ago that some of us sat in that very auditorium with no air conditioning when it was the auditorium of the Cuero Jr. High School, before that the Cuero High School. We didn’t start school back then until after Labor Day to avoid the August days when it was the hottest.

LEPC member submits resignation

Dear Editor,

I’ve attended many functions and meeting with the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) member companies and spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with many of them. I have come to realize the “Core Values” they speak of is not simply PR talk. They are truly “Core Values” that are embedded within every member, lived and practiced every moment. Safety, Community and Citizen Relationships are not simply words from the members but set values for long term prosperity and safety for all in our community. I’m proud and blessed to have known all members of this organization.

Looking for a place to socialize

Dear Editor,

If this is supposed to be a retirement community, there are no places for senior citizens to gather to socialize. Plus, we do not have fellowship like we had at the Heritage Program. I have called the Chamber of Commerce without any feedback. Please respond ASAP.

2016 Cowboy Camp – A great success

Dear Editor,

Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum’s Cowboy Camp 2016 started off Monday, Aug. 1 with a bang; no kidding. The campers fired rubber bands at targets made by Dan Glidden, from long guns produced at Goebel Construction Company following a presentation and discussion of Dan’s collection of period fire arms and weapons. Tuesday, Joe Contreras from Institute of Texan Cultures in San Antonio discussed the American bison and it’s role in Western history. The campers tooled leather head bands, bracelets, and cut-outs with materials and tools provided by Circle Y in Yoakum and Carolyn Leist. They learned to tie knots cowboys need to know with rope provided by Tractor Supply.
