Thanks for support

 

To the Editor:
The Green DeWitt Community Club would like to thank everyone who participated in the quilt raffle recently held. Funds raised will be used to support the community center’s building renovation project. The winner of the quilt drawing was Alexis Mendenhall.
 
Also, a very special thank you is extended to club member Ann Hoffman who made the quilt and donated it to the club for the fundraising project.
 
Our community center is located just outside of Cuero off FM 236. It offers a country atmosphere with nice barbecue facilities. The building is available for rental. For more information contact Cheryl Scott at 361-277-5549.

Recycling suggestions offered to city

 

Dear Editor,
 
The Record posted a letter from someone about the recycling center in December. 
 
Why can’t we have the recycling bins like the ones in Victoria? The bins get picked up once a week or so and no one actually has to go to the recycling center on their own. We all want to help keep Cuero beautiful, but it’s very difficult to do so on our own. 
 
Or, have a recycling day when everyone can make a day out of it at the park. We could include it with the electronics pick up day we already have. It would allow people who truly want to help recycle do so in a more timely fashion. 
Anything would be great to help make our city better.

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.
