Toddler Story Time resumes Jan. 25 at Cuero library

This week's theme for Toddler Story Time was “Snow.”
 
Shannon Reitz read the story “Curious George Plays in the Snow.”
 
The children sang along with several songs that required them to coordinate their hand and eye movements.
 
Next, Shannon read “The Mitten” and then had the children play a color identification game where they placed colored mittens in the correct piles with other like colors.
 
For a craft, the children decorated pre-cut mittens with colors, decorations and stickers.
 
If you are interested in participating in the Toddler Story Time with the wonderful children, visit story time on Mondays at 10 a.m. at the library.

First baby of year at Cuero Hospital

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Nearly two weeks into 2016 there had been no birth at the Cuero Community Hospital birthing center. That changed on Monday evening, Jan. 11 when a baby boy was born. Jonah Michael Brawner was born at 8:50 p.m.
 
Jonah is the first child of Joseph and Jazmine Brawner of Victoria. He was born weighing eight pounds and seven inches and was 19 inches in length.
 
Jonah’s father, Joseph, is in the United States Marines and will soon be shipped out, making the moment all the more special.
 
“I liked it,” Joseph said, referring to being able to see his first child and spend time with him and his wife before leaving. “I was hoping he [Jonah] would be here soon.”
 
Jonah is a new name in the Brawner family, and his middle name, Michael, was chosen for St. Michael, the archangel.

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

Some people can get caught up in a moment never looking back and going on with their life. Others can simply live in the moment, filling their life with fond memories. That is the case with Beverly Bruns, but, it did not start that way when she was asked to represent the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce in the Miss South Texas Pageant in Seguin July 3, 1962.

'County will be out of debt'

By Glenn Rea
Publisher
 
“As a county, we will be completely out of debt.”
 
That was the message Monday after DeWitt County Commissioners Court agreed to retire two series of bonds. The county had sold the certificates of obligation some years ago to construct the jail and refurbish the courthouse.
 
According to Judge Daryl Fowler, by paying off these outstanding bonds early, the county will save just over $3 million.
 
Commissioner Curtis Afflerbach put it in perspective. He said, “In my 11 years on this court, this will be the first time we have been out of debt.”
 
By Feb. 15 the county will have retired $9.2 million in debt and saved paying interest on that amount over the life of that debt.
 
In 2006 the county had issued $10.8 million in certificates of obligation to build the new detention center.
