Thanks to a wonderful angel

 

Dear Editor,
   I just wanted to thank an unknown person who helped us out in our time of need. At approximately 7 a.m. on May 16 my husband and I were on our way back home from a trip that was caught short because my husband was feeling ill. When we reached the corner of Hunt and Sarah Street, my husband had passed out. I took control of the steering wheel and took the vehicle out of gear. 
   When we came to a stop, a woman came to the door and took control. She tried to get my husband to respond, called an ambulance and stayed with us until the ambulance arrived. When my husband was put into the ambulance I looked around and the lady had already gone.
   I just wanted to say thank you to our wonderful angel.
Sincerely,
Otto Lee and Delores Koenning

Lost money at post office, hoping to get it back

 

Dear Editor,
   On Feb. 8, I was at Cuero Post Office about 12:30 or 1:30 p.m. I had gone to the post office to purchase money orders, got $40 cash (two $20s) from the clerk. Just came from the doctor’s office and was in a rush and I accidentally dropped the $40 near the post office boxes.
   I glanced and saw a lady on a cell phone and not realizing I had lost the money, I went to leave the post office to go to the drug store when I found I had lost the $40.
   I am disabled and a cancer survivor.
   I posted notes I lost the money and I told everyone in hopes the $40 would be returned.
   If you found it please give it to the Cuero Post Office counter help to be returned to me. 
   I will soon get another surgery.
God bless you!

Metting seeks seat on school board

 

Dear Editor,
   My name is Todd Metting and I am seeking a seat on the Yorktown School Board.  My wife, Laurie, and I were born and raised here in Yorktown, graduating in 1982.
   We have two children, Dustin, who is a senior at Yorktown High School, and Brian, who is in the 7th grade at Yorktown Middle School. 
   When our children were younger, I was a soccer and little league coach and a Boy Scout leader.
   The Yorktown School System has had many successful programs, but many problems from the cleanliness of the facilities to teacher and student turnover.
 
Read more from this letter in this week's edition of the News-View.
 
Sincerely,
Todd Metting
Yorktown ISD school board candidate
