'A can of worms' for DeWitt County road repairs

 

A considerable amount of work done in 2014 to dedicate money for county road repairs and reconstruction may be in jeopardy.
 
Texas Legislature agreed to allow counties within shale play discoveries and production to dedicate certain tax revenue to rebuilding roads destroyed by that work.
 
By establishing County Transportation Reinvestment Zones (CETRZ), counties were able to target a certain amount of tax revenue as its matching portion for TxDOT grants.

Living a legacy of peace

 

Charlie Sumners is the priest at Grace Episcopal Church, and it is his responsibility to deliver the message of peace. His great-great-grandfather, James Norman Smith, was also a man of peace in his own day, over a century ago.
 
Sumners and his wife, Robin, never lived in Cuero, until moving here last summer but knew about the legacy of their families in DeWitt County, which made the decision easy when he was offered to be the interim reverend at Grace Episcopal.
 
Sumners said, “It felt like I was coming home, because my grandparents were married there and all of their children were baptized there.”

Rescue training passion at work in Yorktown

While John Green’s father worked as a biologist for the Texas Parks and Wildlife near Austin, Green found the caves as his playground which he never outgrew.

Green became a fireman at the age of 23 where he served 27 years at the Austin Fire Department. He took every opportunity to advance his training. His certifications include, in part, Wilderness EMT, swift water training, Urban Search And Rescue team and tower rescue.

Green was part of the rescue team during Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Ike, several tornados and urban caving. He said, “The fire departments are looked upon as the rescue team because they are the problem solvers.”

One time he tried to get on the rope rescue team only to be passed up. Oddly enough, Green would be the one to train people to become part of the rope rescue team.
