Drug testing key topic for trustees

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero ISD trustees held a special meeting on Wednesday, July 22 with the major points of emphasis being dress code, drug testing policy and teacher salary and incentive pay.
 
Jerseys were talked about as where they fit in as part of spirit shirts. It was made clear that they can only be worn on approved days. In regards to pants and shorts, belts must always be worn if they have loops on the pants or shorts.
 
This past school year, 2014-2015, “33 percent of high school students never had a referral for dress code, and 61 percent had less than three,” said Superintendent Jim Haley.
 
Haley finished up the dress code discussion by emphasizing a focus on discipline this year when the dress code is violated.

Dangling power outage

Downtown Main Street in Yorktown was shut down after an 18-wheeler snapped a utility pole at the northwest corner of Main Street and Riedel Street.

Approximately 11:15 a.m., a Haliburten employee, driving a tractor/trailer with a load of dry concrete, was on Riedel Street heading south toward Main Street. The driver made a right turn on Main Street heading west.

Half of the utility pole hangs in mid-air supported only by the safety cables.

“The street is currently closed to through traffic,” Campos said. “AEP and TxDot will come in to repair the lights and utility pole.”
Driver’s heading east or west are asked to take Fifth Street to bypass Main Street.

First Baptist Church-Yorktown celebrate 80 years

July 7 marked the 80th anniversary of First Baptist Church-Yorktown. Along that time frame, Yorktown witnessed the growth of that congregation from the humble beginnings of having services at a local Methodist Church and old Masonic Lodge to the beautiful remodeled sanctuary/education/felowship hall and all purpose building. Church membership has grown spiritually as well as in numbers while making their mark in the community.

Pastor Mark Collins, senior pastor for five years, expressed his observations. He said, “[In church circles] they say that 10 percent do 90 percent of the work. We have 40 percent. We have some people who are really dedicated to the church and community.”

Yorktown has felt their impact of community service.

Collins said, “The greatest attribute we have been for Yorktown is to be a blessing to the community, the schools and support the Lion’s Club basketball  and scholarship programs.”
