The Cuero Record
 
Summer for high school students is usually filled with fun, friends and being care-free. That was not the case for Cuero High School sophomore Jocelynn Seals, daughter of Jason Seals of Hallettsville and Hope Seals of Cuero.
 
In July of 2015, Jocelynn was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma Cancer. Despite the circumstances, Seals has kept a positive outlook.
 
In a word, Seals’ mother, Hope, described what they are going through as “chaos.”
 
“It’s a lot of appointments,” Hope stated.
 
Jocelynn is still attending school through everything was recently released by her doctors to participate in off-season athletics.
 
Hope noted, “School is hard, but it keeps her going. Her friends push her to keep her grades up and keep her grounded.”

Long range study looks at county offices

By Glenn Rea
Publisher

Plans were made Monday at DeWitt County Commissioners Court meeting to study office space needs at the courthouse.

Several times in recent past, heavy rains have caused flooding and water seepage problems in the county clerk’s office in the basement of the courthouse. That office stores most of the required filings for county and residents.

Concern that some of those water problems could damage those records is one of the driving forces leading the county to study its office use space at the courthouse.

County Judge Daryl Fowler said the study would look take a long range look at the courthouse office space. He said it might include removing the clerk’s office from the basement to either other offices in the courthouse or to another facility  yet to be determined.
