Gas fire lights up DeWitt country side

DeWitt County skies turned red Sunday night when a natural gas pipeline rupture resulted in a huge fire between Cuero and Westhoff.

Reports indicated an Energy Transfer Partners pipeline located near FM 953 and Lindenau Road erupted in fire at about 8 p.m.

Neighbors to the site of the explosion on Lindenau Road told sheriff’s office dispatchers it sounded like a ‘huge explosion.’ Not long after, they reported the fire was so large it was over the top of FM 953. Some estimates had the fire over 100 ft. high. Flames could easily be seen from as far away as Yorktown and Victoria.

Residents in the area began diverting traffic away from the site until law enforcement arrived.

While several homes were evacuated near the area, there were no reports of any injuries near the pipeline rupture.

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.”
