'Living the dream'

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

“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.

January is School Board Recognition Month

Texas has more than five million students in its public schools. That is five million young minds from about five years old to about 18 years old, and the state is attracting even more. Every year, the student population increases by about 85,000 additional students.
 
Those impressionable young people depend on the adults in Texas to provide for them. They need shelter and food and nurturing and an education. Who will step up to see that all the children, not just the ones in our own households have what they need in their schools?
 
In Texas, more than 7,200 generous people have offered to help. These are people who receive no pay for their dedicated efforts. These are people who not only volunteer but go through the process of standing up for public education. They are locally elected school board members. They are your neighbors, and they care.
