'It is not about raising money'

Dear Editor,
 
It has taken six to eight years for the Republican Women of Yoakum Area to change the mind set of the citizens. We have tried to be very open and visible in the community: with program speakers, booths in chambers and picnics, floats in parades, bake sales, large speaking events, putting out campaign signs, establishing election headquarters, sponsoring debates and candidate forums, pages on Facebook, going to the Capitol to testify, speaking, participating at county Republican meetings, conducting voter registration, assisting with candidates campaign expenses, rally's, community prayer vigils, letters to the editors and state government officials, veteran's event services, educating our youth, and many other activities in the communities. We are standing, speaking out, and exposing the Democrat Party, saying, “we are the party of life and freedom, join us, and be proud and bold.” There are more of us, than there are of them.

VFW/Auxiliary gives thanks

Dear Editor,

The Yorktown VFW Post 8136 and Auxiliary wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to the communities of Yorktown, Weesatche, and other surrounding communities for supporting the annual Buddy Poppy Day which was held Friday, Nov. 6.

A special thank you to the Yorktown Post Office, Dollar Store, Lowes Supermarket. Also to Aunt Di's, Texan, Leske's Oil/Conoco, Rudy's, Abuelita's and Apple Lumber for allowing us to place poppies and can at their place of business.

The day would not have been a success without the assistance of the volunteers who staffed the stations and walked through the Main Street of Yorktown and Weesatche.

Donations from the Poppy distribution event are used to aid Veteran organizations in various way.

Contact the VFW Post or Auxiliary if you have any questions or would like to join us. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month.

Once again, thank you for supporting our veterans.

Life and Liberty Constitutional Rally

Dear Editor,
 
I am a member of the Republican Women of the Yoakum Area. Our organization includes women from Lavaca, DeWitt, and Gonzales counties. We are sponsoring an important event this coming Saturday, Nov. 14th called the Life and Liberty Constitutional Rally. It will be held at the KC Hall in Hallettsville. We are asking our community to stand up with us and rally against attacks that are happening right now in our country.
 
Attacks against authority—we are rallying and showing our support for our local law enforcement and for all first responders, including our EMS and fire departments.
 
Attacks against Christianity—we are honoring all of our local Pastors.  
 
Attacks like the atrocities that have occurred in Planned Parenthood facilities—we are rallying against abortion and for the right to life.

TWDA express appreciation

Dear Editor,

The Yorktown Western Days Association would like to thank everyone who shared in the success of our 57th annual charitable festival. We appreciate the host of volunteers that contributed their time and skills to assist us in our efforts. A lot of time and preparation is invested in organizing this annual community event and it was a pleasure to see everyone enjoying a good time. Compliments to the team that brought such a great line-up of entertainment from the Children and Grand Parade to the musical talent that performed on the Main Stage and to those who participated in the various activities and competitions.

We must thank our sponsors and in-kind contributors, without such contributions our success would be limited. Contributions from many sources, local and beyond, are necessary to bring one of the most anticipated festivals in the crossroads area to a reality. Their support is greatly appreciated.

'Cuero schools offer many wonderful opportunities'

By Jim Haley
Cuero ISD Superintendent
 
Being an actively involved parent and advocate for your child is one of the most important ways for adults to help their students to be successful in school. Cuero schools offer many wonderful opportunities for parents, guardians, grandparents, foster parents, and significant others to interact with educators, talk to teachers, check grades and attendance online, volunteer, and help with fund raisers such as carnivals, festivals, PTO activities, and booster club events. The important point is not what you do, but how often you do it. Here are numerous ways to be engaged in your children’s education:

Criticism of police throughout country

Dear editor,
 
A number of police officers in various parts of the country have been unjustly criticized for hesitancy in exerting the necessary force to maintain order.
 
This hesitancy is a dream-come-true, an excuse, an opportunity for those who wish to exert greater federal control by nationalizing our local police forces.
 
To this end, they encourage any situation that can be used to make our police look inept. The criticism does not need to be true; it does not to be deserved; it only needs to be an effective tool in the hands of those who seek greater government power.
