The Gobblers Story

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Baseball is America’s pastime, but football reigns supreme in the state of Texas. There really is nothing quite like the Friday night lights of Texas high school football and sometimes Saturdays in December. Fox Sports Southwest and producer Jeff Power have recognized this with their series, “The Legends of Texas High School Football.”
 
Power is the producer and host of “The Cuero Gobblers Story,” which will premiere this Sunday, Dec. 20, and the process seems to have been as enjoyable as the seeing the final product.
 
“It’s been a thrill to produce and host,” Power said.

Westhoff students visit state museum

Students from Westhoff I.S.D. who reached their Accelerated Reader goal enjoyed a day field trip to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin. Thirty-one students were able to partake in this exciting and educational trip. The students had the opportunity to check out the many exhibits, view a 4D movie and have lunch before returning to school. Each grade group had to earn a certain amount of points to be eligible and Westhoff I.S.D. is so proud of the amount of reading these students have done to achieve this accomplishment.
 
In the second six weeks of the year, Westhoff I.S.D. had a total of 48 students with perfect attendance. This achievement means that about 75 percent of students enrolled had perfect attendance.
