Stevenson Unit thanks area businesses

Dear Editor,
 
The Stevenson Unit Administration would like to thank all the area businesses that donated items for the 2016 Silent Auction. The Administration would also like to thank the employees and volunteers who participated in the auction. The Stevenson Unit was able to make a $2000 donation to the Sunshine Kids Foundation. This would not have been possible without the businesses and the employee/volunteer's support.

Gjolberg invites community to town meeting

Dear Editor,
 
I want to personally invite everyone to a town hall meeting at 7 p.m. on Oct. 19 at the Cuero Municipal Park Clubhouse. As you may have read, either in the Cuero Record or the Victoria Advocate, Cuero Community Hospital (CCH) is considering an affiliation with the Methodist Healthcare System out of San Antonio. This arrangement would allow CCH access to greater resources and depth on the bench than is currently available to most independent, rural hospitals. There has been some miscommunication regarding our financial stability; Cuero Community Hospital is doing well financially.

"Support your Local Police"

Dear Editor,

When was the last time any of us told a law enforcement officer thank you for doing your job? I could ask when was the last time you recited the pledge of allegiance, that was to the flag and republic for which it stands? The constitution gave us a republic which is a land of laws to govern, not a democracy.

Our local law enforcement is our first line of defense in our society. Yes, Constitution Day, Sept. 17, has passed for this year, but I would ask everyone to mark Oct. 15 on your calendar.

'Cuero ISD's school village is filled with people who care'

By Jim Haley
Cuero ISD Superintendent
 
We are five weeks into this school year, and it has been a terrific start. As I visit the campuses, I see just how hard all of our educators work to meet our students’ needs. Our teachers remind me of the Energizer Bunny, they keep going and going and going. Whether it means arriving early to prepare for the day, or skipping lunch so they can make copies or tutor a student, or even when they stay until “dark-thirty” to sponsor a club, grade papers, conduct parent conferences, or coach a team, our educators make a huge personal investment to help our students be successful.

BGCDC thanks Extension Office

Dear Editor,
 
The Boys & Girls Club of DeWitt County wishes to sincerely thank Mrs. Denise Goebel with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office and all of her helpers for all of their hard work and dedication in making our first ever 'Dinner Tonite!' meal at the Club a huge success. Over 65 people were served a delicious meal of spinach quesadillas, beans, rice, chips, apple slices, and dessert. Club members who prepared the meal also seated and served their families who attended the event. Club members have already asked when the next event like this one will occur.  Thank you to everyone who has helped ensure that great futures start here.
