"Walk Across Texas"

Join in on the Fun and Fitness Program. DeWitt County Extension will be hosting a “Walk Across Texas” Program for all community members and businesses. Enjoy a little friendly competition, meet new people, spend time with your family and friends, get fit, start a healthy habit and even have a little fun.
 
“Walk Across Texas” is a fun and flexible way to exercise. Just get together with seven other people—friends, neighbors, coworkers, or family members—and start walking, or jogging, or even biking. You can walk together or individually, outside or at a mall or gym, anyway that fits your schedule and lifestyle. You keep track of your miles, to see if you can walk the 830 miles “across Texas” in 8 weeks. Report your totals to see how your team “measures up.”
 
By the end of “Walk Across Texas,” you’ll have a healthy habit that will last a lifetime.

Wildcat Band brings confidence to half-time performances

The Yorktown High School marching band was fluid, in the beat and alive as they made their first appearance on the football field after two years watching from the side lines.

YHS band director Nathan Jones said, “The more they worked over the summer [...] their confidence level has just soared. They have really taken off playing wise and it self perpetuated itself.”

The band played and marched to the first of three performances related to pop radio. They all looked like they were enjoying themselves and pleased with their performance.

“These guys a have a hunger to perform well for their community,” Jones said. “They want their community to know that they are here and they take pride in what they are doing and they want their community to take pride in them.”

Cuero ISD school board adopts 2015-2016 budget, tax rate

By Glenn Rea
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero ISD has a new budget and tax rate.
 
In a special meeting Monday, district trustees adopted a budget and tax to fund the new school year.
 
The new tax rate is $1.39069 per $100 of valuation. That is up about two cents from the current year’s rate of $1.37707.
 
Included in that rate is 96¢ for maintenance and operation of the district and just over 43¢ for debt reduction.
 
The current year’s (2014-15) M&O rate is 94¢ and the debt retirement rate is 43¢.
 
 In a closer look at the new budget, the district plans to spend $28.4 million for maintenance and operation in the new school year. 
 
The largest portion of that will be for instruction, primarily teacher salaries. That total is $12.6 million.
