December Events Committee says thanks

 

Dear Editor,
 
The December Events committee would like to thank all the volunteers who manned the donation gate during Christmas in the Park. 
 
All of the local banks as well as Cuero Junior High School and Hunt Elementary volunteered their time. The Cuero Rotary Club and the Cuero Chamber of Commerce each provided a week of volunteers. One Local 4-H group, St. Michaels youth groups and a local scout group volunteered their time as well. 
 
A special thanks to Bea and Albert Jahnsen who went above and beyond and could always be counted on to fill in when we needed them.
 
It is not possible to name all the individual volunteers who stood in the cold but the committee is very appreciative of all who gave of their time to help make this event very successful. Thank you so much.

New businesses help carry load

 

There are many residents that want to see Yorktown grow and there are just as many who want to see Yorktown stay as it is.
 
Yet, there is no debate to have good city streets that are well lit for safety. Most everyone is on board to have improved and essential services such as education, healthcare, and clean drinking water. And there is no question to reducing income poverty. However, residential taxes are not enough to maintain any size city or town. It takes businesses to keep the momentum of running a town. 
 
With a town that appears to be landlocked it is difficult to see any new growth. Poverty can easily creep in especially in less-developed counties or towns with the lack of available land to develop for growth or lack of natural resources or capital goods.

Thanks for returning wallet

 

Dear Editor,
 
On Dec. 7 I left my wallet in a shopping basket in the parking lot at HEB. 
 
I would like to thank the person who returned the wallet intact to the HEB office and the HEB staff for keeping it safe for me.
 
It is truly a blessing to have such honest and caring people in our community.
 
Thank you again,
Karen Goebel Gohmert

"Not easy to recycle here"

 

Dear Editor,
 
If the City of Cuero and/or those who operate the recycling center really want it to be used, they should make it more user friendly. The bins for plastics and cans are not marked. One bin has both “plastic #1” and “plastic #2” marked on it. 
 
One has to walk around a piece of equipment on uneven ground to put cardboard where it needs to be. There are many citizens who want to be environmentally responsible, but it is not easy to recycle here.

Majestic Myrtles say thanks

 

Dear Editor,
The Majestic Myrtles want to thank you for helping us get together again.  It’s a joy to see all the pictures and articles in the Yorktown News-View about our local events and Yorktown people.
  
Moving to Yorktown in 1984 was the best thing that ever happened to Ray and I. A tiny ad in the San Antonio paper that Tommy Bullock ran that Kneifel’s Corner was for sale brought us here. We had looked at property in Oregon, Arizona and New Mexico. We’re so happy we made the right choice and ended up in such a wonderful community.
