Westhoff student attends spelling bee

Macon Thomas, fourth grader of Westhoff School, was one of two students from DeWitt County to participate in the Regional Spelling Bee last Tuesday in Victoria. The 27th Annual Regional Spelling Bee sponsored by the Victoria Advocate was held at the Victoria College Johnson Symposium Center. Twelve students in the surrounding area participated in this event. Macon was one of the younger students involved with the older students being in the eighth grade. While he did not come out with a win, Macon worked very hard and set an awesome example of what it means to be a Westhoff Warrior.

'After action review committee' proposed for Cuero PD

By Glenn Rea

The Cuero Record

Partly in response to criticism of Cuero Police Department’s handling of an incident that involved one of its officers, Chief Jay Lewis proposed forming a committee to assist his department when major events occur.

Chief Lewis presented the idea at Cuero City Council meeting last week and it was approved for consideration at the April meeting.

Lewis said it would be called an ‘after action review committee’ that could be used if the police department needs to take action against one of its own officers or if there is an officer-involved shooting or something similar.

Golden arches remain

By Glenn Rea

The Cuero Record

Until Tuesday evening, Cuero City Council had not heard much support for the city’s decision to allow McDonald’s 75-ft. tall sign to remain at the corner of Broadway and Esplanade here.

Council was asked to talk about it again in last week’s meeting and decide if any action needed to be taken.

Before a vote could be taken, 13 people spoke in favor of leaving the sign as is.

When it came time to decide whether the sign would see any further  action by the city, councilman Tony Allen said, “I’d like to make a motion that no action be taken on the removal of the McDonald’s sign, it stays.”

His motion was seconded by councilman Terry Glover and it passed unanimously.

Considerable talk about the sign dominated two previous council meetings.
