By Glenn Rea

With little fanfare, directors of DeWitt Medical District has agreed to a contract with Methodist Healthcare Systems for administrative services.
 
The action was supported unanimously by the directors at last week’s regular meeting at Cuero Community Hospital.
In two previous meetings, the topic had drawn large audiences to hear details of the proposed contract. Many expressed concern that Methodist Healthcare Systems was buying the hospital.
 
However, it was explained the agreement would allow Cuero’s hospital to receive a variety of administrative services from the Methodist. Some of those services would include data analysis, physician recruitment, leadership development, clinic management and specialized training. The agreement had no connection to an ownership change of the hospital.

Winter wonderland in Cuero

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and downtown Cuero is once again being transformed into a winter wonderland complete with Ice Skating, Carriage Rides, life size Human Snow Globe, Carousel, Christmas Train ride, Santa Claus and much more.
 
Christmas in Downtown, presented by Cuero Main Street, is bringing back last year’s crowd pleasers and some new exciting activities this year. GVEC is sponsoring a Giant Snowman Bounce this year that can hold up to 35 children at one time. This new attraction will surely be a huge hit.
 
The 30 foot, lighted Christmas tree has returned to downtown early this year. The City of Cuero installed the tree at the corner of Gonzales and Main Street so that it could light up downtown for the entire holiday season. It will remain there until after the new year. The tree will once again be sponsored by Devon Energy for Christmas in Downtown.

Vehicle break-in prevention urged by Cuero Police Department

The Cuero Police Department is urging citizens to take measures to protect their property during this holiday season.
 
Officers have recently responded to an increase in vehicle break-ins over the past month and most, if not all, of the vehicles were left unlocked or unsecured. These incidents seem to be crimes of opportunity and miscellaneous items have been taken from the vehicles, many of which are not traceable for law enforcement.
