DeWitt County Historical Commission will dedicate a monument to the 75 known people buried between 1850 and 1902 in the old part of Clinton Cemetery. The dedication will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 10. Clinton Cemetery Road turns left off US Highway 183, south .6 of a mile from the “Y” past the Guadalupe River bridge. Descendants of those buried in the cemetery, residents of the Clinton community and the general public are invited to learn about the history of Clinton and its cemetery.

The cemetery has no official caretakers and the older part has not been well maintained for many years. Brush and weeds have grown up. Many of the headstones are missing and others have fallen over or have been damaged by weather or by vandalism.

Hanging baskets planting at CHS

The Cuero Main Street Program has teamed up once more with the Cuero High School Ag Students to help beautify the Cuero Main Street District. The 3rd Annual Hanging Baskets planting was held last Wednesday, March 23 at the CHS Ag Building.

Students helped to plant bougainvillea and asparagus ferns into hanging baskets. Cuero Main Street purchased six new 30” diameter baskets for key intersections downtown and will reuse the 22” diameter baskets from previous years’ plantings. The planted baskets will remain at the CHS greenhouse before being hung by the City Parks Department, so their roots can strengthen and take hold.
