Retired school personnel monthly meeting

A tarp placed around the garden can be used to keep rabbits out. The same plant should not be planted in the same place every year. Containers for plants should be painted white to reflect the sun away from the plant and keep the soil cooler.

These are just a few of the gardening tips delivered by Pat Koenig and Emory Powitsky as they presented a program about Master Gardening to the DeWitt County Retired School Personnel at a recent meeting in cuero at the GVEC Community Room. Koenig and Powitsky explained that gardens do not have to be the traditional plot garden but can be planted in raised beds, containers, and in keyhole gardens as well.

National Preservation Month underway

May is National Preservation Month and in honor of that, Cuero Main Street would like to shine a spotlight on historical preservation in the community. Preservation Month, initiated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, was designed to raise awareness about the social, cultural, and economic power of historic preservation. The intent is to broaden awareness of local historic assets by holding events and activities that reach out to the general public.

There are four National Register Historic Districts within the Cuero City limits: the Downtown Commercial District, the Terrell-Reuss Residential District, the East Main Residential District, and the Historic Water District.

During the 83rd Legislative Session, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 500, which establishes a state tax credit for the certified rehabilitation of certified historic structures.

Gobbler band announces "The Ellie Project" for 2016 UIL show

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Andrew Heard continues to inspire, even those who may not have had the chance to know him. The Cuero High School marching band will pay homage to Heard with their show this fall, based on the book he and his wife, Bailey, wrote for their daughter, “The Ellie Project.” As director Richard Varela points out, though, the idea came out of nowhere and found them.

“It wasn’t our original idea to do “The Ellie Project,”” Varela said. “We were gonna do a patriotic show. We wanted to do a meaningful show. It being a UIL year, we always look to see what gets the best crowd response. If the crowd is responding to it, the judges will respond to it.”

A patriotic theme was chosen back in November 2015, but following the Christmas break, they were unable to visualize the show from the music made for them.
