UHV-Small Business Development Center deemed a success in Cuero office

In the spring of 2016, a partnership between the Cuero Development Corporation (CDC) and University of Houston-Victoria – Small Business Development Center (UHVSBDC) was created with the opening of the SBDC office in Cuero at the CDC headquarters, 214 E. Main. To submit grants to CDC, business owners are required to confer with business advisors from the SBDC.

Before June 2016, those meetings took place at various locations in town. Now local business owners meet at the Cuero DC office. This measure also completed one of its Action Items of the latest Cuero Strategic Economic Development Plan “to consider offering the UHV-SBDC office space at the CDC.”

President Trump’s Administration A New Ideology

Within the ten days of his presidency and 20 executive orders, President Donald Trump has created more discord and chaos throughout the world, in a rapitidy envy of past and/or would be dictators. The main order now being on the ban of Muslim’s travel to the US from 7 Islamic nations. The presidential action actually being an over-blown reaction to terrorism and envisioned safety threat to Americans.

The presidential move, one of more to come, stems from a new ideology recently voted greatly due to a disenheartened America from the lack of decades of meaningful legislation due to political in-fighting in Congress. That opened a door for a new ideology that candidate Trump was able to fill.

Bottom Line ideology is part of the financial world. It can be cold, harsh, non-compassionate and disrespective of family values and human emotions or feelings -- whatever becomes necessary to fit the Bottom Line..

Wedding ring lost in Cuero 

 

Dear Editor,

I lost my wedding ring on Saturday, Jan. 28 around 4 p.m. on Esplanade St., 2 piece wedding set. First ring, silver band with single stone, 2nd band has a sapphire on each side of the solitaire where the bands fit together, then it has small baguettes.

My husband bought me this ring to replace the wedding bands we got married with. I was twirling it on the end of my finger while my arm was at rest on the window of my car driving down the inside lane going toward Gonzalez on Esplanade St when it fell off around Bealls.

My husband surprised me with that ring before Christmas, he picked it himself. The sapphires are my birthstone. I am sick over losing it and hope that if found it will be turned in to the police department. I am offering a $500 reward.

Thank you, Theresa Tillman
