City-wide revival planned April 25-27

 

Dear Editor, 
My name is Suzanne Novak with the Tree Of Life Ministry. I moved to the Cuero area approximately three years ago. One thing that was brought to my attention is the fact that there are so many churches in this small of a town. Now the population of Cuero is roughly 6,898 and if each person attended church (regardless of denomination) then each church would have approximately 77.5 people for Sunday morning worship service. However, this is not true. My husband and I have visited several of the local churches in the Cuero area and have found that some churches struggle to fill the sanctuary not with the number of 77 but with even less.

Montez family thanks all for benefit dinner assistance

 

Dear Editor,
I prayed to God and asked for a miracle for my daughter, Amanda Montez. She has been diagnosed with stage four cancer. God has answered within His own plan as He alone knows the correct answer. His grace has been all the volunteers sent to my family to assist and carry some of the burden.
We cannot express or put into words of the gratitude that I have for all those individuals. Those, who out of kindness, love, caring and respect have come forward to work or provide some monetary assistance for my daughter.
Sincerely, 
Amanda Montez, Denise Zinke and Mark Vavrusa

Homeless pets set up in temporary location

 

Dear Editor,
Pet Adoptions of Cuero wants to acknowledge all the calls, visits and inquiries we have had recently.
Thanks to the generosity of some very animal-loving citizens we are now set up at a temporary overflow location off of U.S. Highway 183. The covered pavilion was originally horse stalls but thanks to many Pet Adoptions of Cuero volunteers the stalls have been re-worked and set up to accommodate the homeless dogs.

Superintendent notes AYP work

 

Dear Editor,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students and parents of Yorktown ISD. I will retire in June.  
We are working diligently to prepare our students for the testing that will take place beginning in April. As you know, our elementary campus did not meet Adequate Yearly Progress for a second year in 2011-2012.

Three things state could do to help with local roads

County Judge Daryl Fowler was the speaker at Friday’s community leaders meeting of Cuero Development Corporation.

Judge Fowler reported on efforts to have members of the 83rd Legislative session address needs of the counties within the Eagle Ford Shale development.

He explained a coalition of counties are attempting to get legislation approved that would give back to the counties some of the oil and gas severance tax monies that are being sent to Austin.
