The school board dropped the ball

 

Dear Editor,
   Who dropped the ball?
   Once again our school district is in the media because our administration and most members of our school board continues to conduct business as usual. 
   Now the question becomes, who is at fault that the high school principal has not been certified since September 2008 and was certifying students for graduation when he himself was not certified?
   Let’s go back to where it all started. On July 29, 2008 the board voted unanimously on the recommendation of the superintendent to offer him a one year contract in which five of the board members that voted sits on the current board today.

Downtown needs work

 

Dear Editor,
   On Easter weekend, my mom and I passed through your town. Back in the day when I was little I remember my mom bringing my grandparents to shop in Yorktown. As I was growing up, I always remembered attending the parade during Western Days. 
   The years have passed and it has been a very, very long time since we have visited Yorktown. My first question, who is in charge of how your town looks in appearance? My second question is, does anyone care? My mom and I were in total shock on how rundown Main Street, the heart of Yorktown, looked.

Heard thanks community for support

 

To My Town, 
How to you begin to say thank you for a changed life? I have struggled with this thought and haven’t come to a conclusion better than, “Thank You.” Your grace and compassion has changed my life and the life of my family. You always wonder if you are alone in this world or if the world is a good place. I can’t tell you about the whole world, but I can tell you on the day of my benefit, Cuero showed us without a doubt that it is filled with the best people and that you love me.
Sincerely,
Andrew B. Heard
