Before Cuero City Council delved into the main portion of their agenda on Wednesday, July 27, they took the time to recognize Cuero Police Officer Juan Ruiz Jr. for his efforts in serving a family in the community. On July 5, Ruiz received a call about a woman and her son being attacked by a swarm of bees in the 200 block of E. Morgan. Ruiz did not immediately locate the caller, Crystal Irvin, and her son, Jacob, but diligently searched the area until finding them. Upon locating Irvin and her son, officer Ruiz then transported them to the emergency room. Ruiz was also stung by several bees in the process. Mayor Sara Post Meyer presented the commendation to Ruiz with Irvin present to again show her thanks.
