Emergency planning committee

On Wednesday evening, April 17, 2013, a fire inside a fertilizer plant caused a catastrophic explosion in the City of West, Texas. The explosion injured over 200 individuals and caused the death of 15, 10 of which were members of the West Volunteer Fire Department; a statewide call for assistance went out. Waco’s leadership message was to go and assist in whatever capacity they could.

This is their story.

The DeWitt County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is an Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know group that is made up of community officials, leaders, partners, private industry, first responders and private citizens. The LEPC works on developing emergency response plans and informs the community about chemicals within their community.

Pet Adoptions volunteer training

Pet Adoptions of Cuero is bursting at the seams with lots of loveable dogs and cats. Thanks to support from the city and our local vets, all the pets (except puppies and kittens) have been spayed or neutered and have all necessary shots and medical attention. Right now there is such a wonderful selection of dogs - large, small and in between. There are outdoor dogs, cuddle in your lap dogs and dogs that want a loving human to run and play with. The volunteer staff highly recommends some of their dogs that are over two years old. They are still full of energy and love but don’t have the typical habits seen with puppies such as chewing and digging. Most of them just want a comfortable corner to snooze in, fresh water and two meals a day.

Make your Spring and Summer plans to include a new family pet - it will be a rewarding experience for every member of your family - especially the adopted pet.

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Cemetery funds and continued talk on the Cuero Municipal Airport were the key items discussed at the April 26 City Council meeting. Both items were tabled so more research could be done before decisions were made.
