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.”

Dear Editor,
 
I want to thank the Golf Association and the City of Cuero and all the sponsors and players who helped and participated in this event.
 
The Golf Association and the City of Cuero sponsored a “Quick 9” to benefit Larry Carter. We had a great turn-out with over 30 golfers. The players raised over $3,000.
 
Bragging rights go to teams Bobby Schroeder and Bryan Weaver and Mary Kate Krueger and Chuck Wilson. Both teams scored a 69.
 
A special thank you goes to Johnny Varela.

Dear Editor,
 
The 2013-14 Yorktown High School Varsity Mini Camp Cheer Luau of 2013 was a great success. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
 
We had a big turn out and a great time with all the girls. 
 
The 2013 Yorktown Varsity Cheerleaders would like to thank their parents for their help running the camp, Larry Gohmert for setting up the music, and State Farm and Citizens Bank for sponsoring us.
 
We couldn't have done it without their help and we are very appreciative for it. 
 
Sincerely,
