"God had His hand on me"

When Dwain Harbers tells you his story, he is moved to tears knowing the grace given over and above what he could possibly imagine. Harbors is living a full life, a life where coincidence and music is surpassed by how he said, “God had His hand on me.”

Harbors grew up in Nordheim where he was introduced to play the trumpet in fourth grade. When he entered sixth grade, the high school band was so small that the school combined grades 6-12. Advancing his skill with the trumpet it soon allowed him to play in college. Harbors graduated Nordheim High School in 1964 and went to play in the band and attend Southwest Texas State University in San Marcus, Lyndon B. Johnson’s alumni school.

During President Johnson’s tenure in the oval office, the SWTSU played in numerous of his events including his inaugural on Jan. 20, 1965.

Demolition underway on Cuero City Hall

Citizens of Cuero passed a bond issue in 1903 to build a new two-story brick city hall at the corner of Main and Gonzales streets. In 1954 the second story was removed and city hall was substantially remodeled. Cuero’s administration and police department moved across the street into the new and expanded city administrative building a couple of years ago. Cuero’s original city hall is now being demolished. After it is removed that area is planned for more parking spaces downtown.

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.”
