The City Council recently approved the fiscal year 2016 – 2017 (Oct. 1, 2016 – Sept. 30, 2017) budget and work program for the Cuero Development Corporation (CDC). The budget reflects the over 1/3 (.3376) decrease in sales tax receipts for the year. Although next year’s budget is anticipated to be balanced, (revenue equaling expenditures) for the CDC and the December Events Committee (a part of the CDC) all major grant programs – Business Retention and Expansion, Main Street Façade, Community Service, and Entrepreneur Program will maintain the same funding levels.

‘Waste of money’ at estate sale

Dear Editor 

We went to an estate sale and bought a filing cabinet that is a waste of money because it’s a piece of junk. I wish they had left the drawers in it.

A dream come true

Dear Editor,
Ever since I was a young lawyer in my dad’s hometown law office, I’ve dreamed of being a judge. That dream has now come true thanks to Republicans across our area nominating me and Governor Abbott recently appointing me. While I can’t give remotely the thanks that are due in 150 words or less, here goes. I want to thank my wife, Margaret, and our kids and grandkids for their unceasing support throughout the process.

Veteran Affairs study

Dear Editor, 

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs released 46 pages from a most comprehensive study on Veteran suicide. The study examined more than 55 million veteran’s records from 1979 to 2014. Last month’s initial release showed approximately 20 veterans commit suicide each day. On average 14 of those 20 were not VA users. The new release investigates the breadth and depth of information pertaining to characteristics of suicide in the veteran population. In the 2014, suicide was the 10th leading cause of death for the general population. That number has been increasing according to the Center for Disease Control.
