Sales tax revenues down

By Patrick J. Kennedy
CDC executive director
 
This year we have revised our Christmas in the Park Visitor Card, that is handed out at the end of the tour, to folks not from Cuero. We are trying to gage whether our visitors dined, shopped, purchased fuel, or were staying at a local lodging. 
 
The overwhelming response has been extremely positive. We will post several of the comments on our Facebook page. 
 
It is not a surprise that sales tax revenues are down for the first quarter of the fiscal year (October-December), but it is alarming at the percentage decrease compared to the same time period last year. If this trend continues the Board of Director’s will surely have to reevaluate the CDC programs.

Recommendation to learn Heimlich Maneuver

Dear Editor,
 
On Dec. 10th, my wife and I along with our friends, Paula and Ed were having lunch at a Victoria restaurant. Suddenly, my wife choked on a meat particle. Paula was the first to notice her distress and jumped up to apply the Heimlich Maneuver.

Generosity in Cuero

Dear Editor,
 
We would like to recognize the generosity of the people living in Cuero. We decided to start a small fundraiser. Without hesitation, we had so many willing to sell raffle tickets, give time to gather raffle items, donate raffle items, and people buying so many tickets; we sold out in no time at all. What amazes us is that this is not an isolated event; we have seen time and time again Cuero have empathy for one another. Thank you Cuero for being a community of love and support, “ The Way Life Ought to Be.”

Final year of Swine Prospect Show in 2014

Dear Editor,
 
In 2004, the Cuero Masonic Lodge, under the direction and guidance of Mr. Albert Jahnsen, undertook a project to assist FFA members, Young Farmers, and other school age kids in learning how to prepare their hogs for competition. We called the project “The Swine Prospect Show.” Each year the show was held in the Friar Ag Center in Cuero. The show was setup and handled just like a real show and prizes were awarded similar to regular competition. Judges were brought in and instructed the kids on showmanship and swine judging. This process helped the kids in their preparation for a show and familiarized the hogs to a show type environment. The kids were taught what needed to be done for the hogs physically to make a better showing while learning ring protocol about what they must do to present the hogs to the judges.

Rhotenberry responds to prior letter

Dear Editor, 
 
These comments are in response to Ms. Brenda Cash’s letter which appeared in The Cuero Record on Nov. 18. Thank heavens we live in a country where we are able to openly express ourselves without fear of reprisal - perhaps the single largest factor in our nation being the most powerful in recorded history.
 
Ms. Cash and the Republican Women of the Yoakum Area have my sincere admiration. They are active, dedicated volunteers working to further the Republican Party platform in Texas. Additionally, I respect Ms. Cash for having the courage of her convictions. I was, however, saddened by her characterization of the Democratic Party as “anti-Christian and anti-American,” among other things.

Veterans honored at Cuero Headstart

Dear Editor,
 
Cuero Headstart Center honored our Veterans who served for our country by making large flags and saluting them on this day.
 
We learned about the different ways our men and women served to help our country be what it is today and the children had the opportunity to meet a True Veteran who come to our center on this day. The children learned that this Veteran who's name we proudly speak of is Mr. Matt Tarter who served in the Navy for six years and is still serving his country's future children by bringing water to our center. Mr. Tarter is employed at a water company and has been serving us for some time now.
 
 We want to give a Special Thanks to all the men and women who served and continue to serve for our country.
 
Thank you from the Cuero Headstart staff and children.
 
Deborah Ramey
