Thanks for bank's help

Dear Editor,

I would like to apologize for leaving Citizens Bank of Yorktown from the "Thank You" letter to the editor for those assisting with our Shattered Dreams program presented to the Yorktown High School Students in March. Citizens is a big supporter of Yorktown Western Days and the Yorktown Chamber efforts. I apologize for any inconvenience.

The Shattered Dreams program would not be possible without the assistance from dozens of volunteers and many organizations. We wish to recognize those that took their time to make this event a success and I regret any unintentional omissions.

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

The Yorktown Market Days was quite a success on Saturday, May 2. We were pleased with the Community Wide garage sale support, also. Having been blessed with such beautiful weather it was a great day for shopping and supporting these Yorktown Chamber activities.

We look forward to the next Shop the 4 Seasons Yorktown Market Days on August 1 at the Yorktown City Park.

Thank you for the support of our son

Dear Editor,

We would like to thank everyone involved in our son, Andrew, going to Special Olympics in Yoakum this year.  The DeWitt Lavaca Co-Op set him up to go and worked with him to develop his motorized wheelchair obstacle course.  Yorktown Independent School District and Yorktown Elementary School were very supportive.  We thank Mr. Umholz for driving him, Mrs. Hernandez for going to cheer for him, Mrs. Esther Corpus for being his aide, training with him and for the tremendous send off she and his teachers, Mrs. Cindy Knobles and Mrs. Brooke Foote arranged for him, including a police escort through town by Chief Paul Campos. The kids at school were so excited for him, cheering him out the door. We are deeply thankful for the support he has received in Yorktown.

Sincerely,
Mike and Myra Yeretsky

Waiting on plumber, need help

 

Dear Editor,
 
We have waited four months on a plumber. We went to the Health Department and the city. We can’t get a plumber to call or come by to let us know if they want the job. We are not to stand in the way of progress. We just want a little help. Is that too to ask for? I wish somebody would help.

'Feet washing' article scriptural

 

Dear Editor,
 
I read the article by Gary Andrews on April 22, titled “Feet Washing.” I want to commend him for his scriptural article. The Stratton Primitive Baptist Church engages in feet washing following our communion service, and we follow the instructions given in John, Chapter 13. Verse 15 is powerful, “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done unto you." Since He did it literally we feel it is our duty to follow that command. Thank you for printing that good article.

National Nurses Week May 6-12

May 6-12 is National Nurses Week. This week gives us a chance to recognize our nurses in healthcare. As I’m sure you have all heard before, it takes a special person to be a nurse.  Day in and day out nurses put their whole hearts into making the lives of their patients as comfortable, positive, and healthy as possible. 

Often, nurses work 12 hour shifts throughout a three day work week.  In those 12 hours that nurses spend taking care of their patients, they are always in a crunch for time with medications to be given, treatments to be done, family to be spoken to, doctors to be called, charting to be done, lives to be saved. Any of you who know a nurse will especially understand that 12 hours does not really mean 12 hours. Nurses often come in early and get home late, get called in on their day off, and even spend their time at home calling to work to check on that patient they cared for all day just to see if his condition is improving any.
