Council sees demo of new smart meters

By Glenn Rea

The Cuero Record

Cuero City Council saw a demonstration and update on the installation of the new advanced metering system here. There was also an update on the street improvement plans.

It was explained almost 1,400 electric meters and about 900 water meters have been installed. The completion of this project is expected to be in October.

This new advanced metering system will also a provide customer friendly portal called “intelaHome”. This portal will allow customers to manage and monitor their electric and water usage. There is no additional charge for this in-home portal.

With this advanced metering system, the city will no longer be using meter readers because the meters report usage electronically.

Zella said the system will also allow the city to pin point water leaks and electrical line loss which could reduce city expenses.

'The bell didn't ring' for Watson

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Brady Watson, who just finished 8th grade and will be moving to Cuero High School this fall, competed in the 89th Annual Scripps National Bee from May 24-26 in National Harbor, Maryland, 10 miles from the U.S. Capitol. Watson is the son of Trent and Jami Watson and has a younger sister, Bromli.

Brady spelled both his words correctly during the preliminaries but did not advance to the finals due to the written test he took the day before. They had 12 spelling words and five choices and 12 vocabulary words with multiple choice answers with about an hour to test.

One-hundred seventy were left after prelims. Thirty-three were eliminated in the first round and 81 in the second round.

The top 45 contestants advanced to the finals, but Brady was still pleased with his performance.

“It’s been pretty fun,” Brady said. “I’m just glad I made it as far as I did. The bell didn’t ring so that was good.”
