Aggravated assault offender sentenced 75 years

A DeWitt County man was sentenced to 75 years in prison Monday after he was found guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14.

Gerardo Alvarez, 57, of Cuero and previously of Yorktown, was arrested 11 months ago in Cuero on charges of driving while license suspended or invalid, improper photography or visual recording and later charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child sexual contact. His bonds totaled just over $200,000.

Alvarez remained in DeWitt County Jail until his trial this week.
He pleaded not guilty and the case was presented by District Attorney Michael Sheppard and heard by District Judge Jack Marr. Sgt. Carl Bowen of DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.

The case was initiated when pictures of young girls were found on Alvarez’ phone in sexually suggested poses.
Alvarez was found guilty and was sentenced to 75 years in prison.

Always wanted to live here "Here to stay"

Larry Noel had a dream. He never thought it could be a reality and if so, never so soon.

“I grew up in Corpus Christi and we spent time at the R-n-N Ranch with family (grandparents Ellen and Brooks Noel, deceased) in Yorktown on weekends and summers. I always wanted to move there some day but thought that will probably have to wait for retirement. It is always hard to make a living when you are new to a community and kind of specialized in what I do,” said Noel.

After graduating high school Noel went to Texas A&M. He earned his undergraduate in biomedical science and graduate degree in epidemiology.

His journey was about to begin beyond anything he could do himself. He said, “It is amazing to see how the Lord has blessed the desires of our heart without us having any ability. We could have never done anything like this. The Lord has put it all into place.”

Council moves forward to relocate public library to historic building

 

A change of plans by City of Cuero administration has the Cuero Public Library moving across the street.
 
Council was shown proposed plans for the Cuero Public Library to be housed at the historic Coca-Cola building at the May 26 regular council meeting. 
 
Previously, the new library was to be built over the city’s existing library and the former city hall building. Under the new plans, the Coca-Cola building across the street, as well as the adjacent parking lot, would be renovated to house the library.
 
City manager Raymie Zella said cost was a factor when deciding to change plans to move the library across the street.
“There is already a slab foundation at the old Coke bottling plant,” he said. “This will save a considerable amount of money.”

County to collect royalty money

 

Governor Greg Abbott is expected to sign a bill in the next few days that will return royalty money to DeWitt County to help with road repairs.
 
County Judge Daryl Fowler said legislators agreed with the argument recently that oil and gas leasing bonuses, rental, and royalty money from county right-of-ways should be returned to counties where it was collected.
 
About 54 years ago Kleburg County asked the state if it could lease some of its right-of-way for oil and gas exploration. An attorney general’s opinion said any money realized from a lease belongs to the state.
