Dear Editor,
 
Thank you seems so plain and simple but we know there was nothing simple about what you have all done for the benefit on Saturday.
 
Know that in our hearts we are truly grateful for all of your donations, your support, hard work, and your time.
 
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,
Charles and Kay Kuecker and family

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.”
