Cuero native goes back to school

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero has seen many people do great things in all facets and phases of life. This community has bred numerous leaders; some have stayed and other have branched out to other parts of the country and world. Helen Mike-Andrews is one such native of Cuero who has left this small, caring community and continued to share what she learned here, specifically in education.
 
Andrews is currently an assistant principal at Alton High School in Illinois. She continues to defy the odds by earning college degrees later in life than most and molding the minds of young people. She gives much of the credit to her Cuero education.
 
“I loved growing up in Cuero,” Andrews said. “I often tell people it was the best experience of any person’s life. It was a law-abiding, God-fearing community.”

Values down as county studies tax rate, budget

DeWitt County will probably hold its tax rate at the current level for the new fiscal year according to Monday’s public hearing at the courthouse.

Reviews of the proposed budget and tax rate were the key items at the meeting. The court agreed to meet Monday, Sept. 28, at 9 a.m. to adopt both. The new fiscal year starts Oct. 1.

County Judge Daryl Fowler covered the tax topic pointing out, for the first time in several years, total market values here declined.

Taxable values for 2015 were posted at $6 billion compared to the previous year’s $7 billion, a decline of $1 billion.

Most of that decline was in mineral values. Those values in 2014 were $6.5 billion and this year they dropped to $5.1 billion.

'There's a cat in my car' or how to get a new pet

Just how far would someone go to save a cat? For Beverly Bruns, just a couple of blocks and have her vehicle nearly dismantled.

Bruns was on her way to the doctors office to get her shots. She went to the bank and on her way out Bobby Strieber walked by and said that she had a cat in the car. Her reply? “Oh I do not.”

Strieber got a broom, found the cat and Bruns said, “I pulled it out of the engine by it’s ears and he clawed me and I dropped the darn cat and it ran back into the engine.”

Strieber informed Bruns to drive the vehicle home slowly. Bruns said, “I take off slow and these cars at the library are honking at me because I am driving too slow. I go through the light, I pulled up in front of Thomas Street and I called my husband. He said drive home slow.”
