Church festival was overwhelming success

Dear Editor,

On behalf of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, I thank all of you for your support of our annual festival. We held our 87th annual festival on Sept. 1. Due to the large support of the community, it was an overwhelming success of faith, fellowship, and fun had by all.
 
I thank all the workers who donated their time in preparation and execution. I also thank all who supported the festival with donations, both financially as well as for the various booths and the auction. 
 
May the goodness of God continually strengthen us all as we learn to journey together in building the kingdom. 
 
Blessings and love, 
Father David Berger

"In God's eyes, we are all created equal"

 

Dear Editor,
 
As proud grandparents of children with ADHD, autism, ADD, and other problems, I would like to know what will happen to these children when it is time to go out into the world and try to find a job.
 
We know it is hard to find jobs, but people have to wake up for these kind of children too.
 
In God’s eyes, we are all created equal, but that is not always so in people’s eyes.
 
A lot of these children could do some kind of work if people have patience and understanding. Once a child has employment and gets laid off a job too often, they get very discouraged and depressed.
 
People should wake up and think about these things too.
 
Sincerely,
Arleen and Roger Weise

May God bless each and everyone of you. Know, that as plain and simple as thank you sounds, it is big. It is huge. And most of all it is sincere.
 
With heartfelt thanks,

Someone explain high power charge

 

Dear Editor,
 
I would like someone to explain why the power charge has gone so high. My whole utility bill used to be below $300. My power charge is now close to that amount. I have lived in Cuero for a number of years. Being retired and on a fixed income, it is rather hard to keep up on bills. How are some with people with less of an income able to keep up?
 
Is the power charge because of the oil and gas that is in our vicinity and the growth of the city population? I am glad about the oil boom for people that have the leases. I am just a homeowner who lives in Cuero. I am almost sure that I am not the only person with this problem.

We met a 'real Texan'

 

Dear Editor,

Have you ever met a stranger that reaches out and helps you?

We met one, along the Cotton Patch area in the intense heat of an August day in South Texas.

A flat tire along a busy stretch of narrow road was our dilemma.

Many eighteen wheelers, pickups, cement and gravel trucks speeded past. No one slowed down or stopped until a farm truck pulling an empty cattle trailer slowed, backed up, and stopped.

That was the day, we met a “real Texan.” You know, the kind you read about in the Louie La’Amour novels about the old West, where a man’s handshake is his word.

“You folks need some help?” he asked. He set to work with his tools and sweat to solve our serious problem.

Our offer of money for all of his effort was met with, “No, no, just helping someone else that needs it.”

Sounds a lot like the commandment: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
