New Nordheim band director stays upbeat

It’s his first teaching position, but new Nordheim ISD Band Director Keller Shelton is already looking for bigger and better things for the Nordheim Pirate Band. Just recently, the maroon, gold and white uniformed group marched in the Cuero Turkeyfest Parade for the first time in years. On Saturday, October 22, the group will march in the Yorktown Western Days Grand Parade. “I can definitely say the community really supports the band,” Shelton said of Nordheim residents. “And I’m grateful for the support it has. It’s a smaller community, so people are vested and wanna help. We have tons of support.”

Region IV powers collide Friday night

For the fifth time in the last four seasons and 18th time overall, Cuero will match up against the Sinton Pirates. The Gobblers hold a slight edge on their district rival, 9-8, with meetings dating back to 1954, when Cuero won, 13-12, in a non-district game. This season, Cuero comes into the contest at 7-0, while Sinton dropped their first game of the season last week to Wharton, 40-0. Records will not account to much, though, when these two teams take the field on Friday night in Sinton.
