Dear Yorktown Community, 

Starting with the 2017-2018 school year, the Commissioner of Education will label every public school and school district in Texas with a rating in the form of an A-F letter grade to comply with House Bill 2804. This grade is based primarily on a student’s performance on one test, the STAAR. In order to prepare for the implementation of these ratings in 2018, the state is publicly issuing preliminary A-F ratings on January 6, 2017 which are based on 2016 testing data as a trial run to inform schools and school districts what their grades would be if these ratings were applied this year. The primary arguments supporting the use of A-F ratings are that it simplifies the explanation of school and school district quality while at the same time helping to improve student performance.

Many thanks to all who contributed to the success of the Yorktown Blue Santa program this year. The Yorktown Western Days Association is pleased to partner with the Yorktown Police Department to administer this program in Yorktown in an effort to spread the "Christmas Spirit" to the less fortunate of our community.

Dear Editor, 

Gerhardt's Jewelry was inadvertently omitted from the "Stuffed Stocking Giveaway" article. Mrs. Gerhardt's contribution of pair of earrings was a significant part of the nearly $500 collection of gift items and gift cards that was awarded to Heather Young. Gerhardt's Jewelry is a long time Yorktown Chamber member and is very supportive of the chambers efforts. My apologies for the omission.

Sincerely, Tammy Bitterly, Executive Director Yorktown Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

Driving force behind Pet Adoptions of Cuero

Dear Editor, 

Dear Friends and Followers of Pet Adoptions of Cuero,

So sad to report that Ron Ledbetter passed away on Wednesday, December 21.

For those that don’t know, Ron was the driving force behind the creation of Pet Adoptions of Cuero, Inc. along with wife Peggy.

He was the first to recognize the need for a fully operational adoption center in our fair city.

His efforts along with Peggy’s helped create a wonderful working relationship with Cuero’s animal control system.

Those efforts led to an outpouring of support from the community and the well established center we are blessed to have today.

Ron’s heart and goal was to see that all of God’s creatures were given a second chance at finding forever homes.

He was an inspiration to all of us volunteers that man/woman the shelter daily.

We have lost a great leader – someone who came forward and said “we can make a difference – let’s find a way.”
