Grandparent's Day at Cuero Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Sept. 13

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero Nursing and Rehabilitation Center will take part in Grandparent’s Day again this year, as they are encouraging the community to adopt a grandparent on Sept. 13.
 
Jennifer Hahn, an independent Mary Kay Beauty consultant and nurse, is leading the effort. Sponsorships are needed by Aug. 30 to provide gifts for the residents of the nursing home.
 
“Three to four years ago, carnations and cookies were taken to the residents on Valentine’s Day,” Hahn said.
 
Many of the residents are provided with items from the nursing home, but it is often not something personal from a family member. Adopt a Grandparent for Grandparent’s Day provides a way to not only give something personal but also to spend time with the residents and talk to them.

Slow and steady wins the race

Most Cuero residents know about Ruby Selection Day but for Linda and Robert Busby from Port Alto, Texas it was an event they had to come check out. According to Linda, they have traveled to fairs and festivals together for 15 years and she told her husband “we have to go see what this is all about.” They are planning to come to Turkeyfest in October for the first time.  
 
When handler, Anthony Netardus, was asked about the upcoming races his response was, “Boots. That is all I wear. I will not wear tennis shoes during these races.” 
 
After three heats the winner was chosen. The race team all agreed that the patient, more focused turkey was “the one.” The new Ruby will take on Paycheck in Worthington, Minn. on Sept. 12.

AgriLife Extension office offers back to school safety tips for drivers

Just when summer is really starting to heat up in Texas, it is almost time for children to go back to school. Soon motorists will be sharing the roads with school buses, pedestrians, bicycle riders, and lots of new teen drivers taking their first car to school. According to the National Safety Council, teen car crashes spike in September when they are driving to and from school.
 
Drivers young and old need to be vigilant because child pedestrians can be very unpredictable. 
 
They’re easily distracted and can often run into traffic or out from behind parked cars. Looking out for children rather than expecting them to look out for us is our best defense as drivers.
