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.

"Shattered Dreams" took the help from a community

Before spring break the Yorktown Western Days Association, Inc. (YWDA) organized the “Shattered Dreams” production. The program was organized, with the assistance of local and regional emergency response units, to send a valuable message regarding the consequences of “drinking and driving” to our local youth.

Yorktown High School students participated in the mock accident, living dead and photography. The parents and guardians of the participants also played an active roll, sending a strong message on the personal anguish felt when someone has been affected by the negative aspects of making the poor choice of driving while intoxicated. Carol Semper, YISD high school teacher, YHS secretary Delia Ramirez, counselor Nancy Hutchins and principal David Lynn coordinated the students. Tim O’Malley, reporter from the Cuero Record/Yorktown News-View and The Victoria Television Group were present.

Family of Mary Lucas extends sincere gratitude

 

Dear Editor,
 
The family of Mary Lucas would like to extend our sincere gratitude and thanks for the visits, cards, flowers, prayers, and support during her recent sickness and loss.
 
Due to the fact that there were so many food donations it has been difficult to thank each of you individually. Know that we are grateful to each and everyone of you.
 
Thank you also to the food committe at St. Michael’s, the professional staff at Freund Funeral Home, and to Father David Berger for his visits. Each one of you impacted Mary’s life and ours. We are sincere, and so as simple as thank you sounds, know it comes from the heart.
 
With heartfelt thanks,
 
Kay Kuecker
 
On behalf of Leslie, Joey, Hannah, Beth, and Kyra
