"Shattered Dreams" took the help from a community

Before spring break the Yorktown Western Days Association, Inc. (YWDA) organized the “Shattered Dreams” production. The program was organized, with the assistance of local and regional emergency response units, to send a valuable message regarding the consequences of “drinking and driving” to our local youth.

Yorktown High School students participated in the mock accident, living dead and photography. The parents and guardians of the participants also played an active roll, sending a strong message on the personal anguish felt when someone has been affected by the negative aspects of making the poor choice of driving while intoxicated. Carol Semper, YISD high school teacher, YHS secretary Delia Ramirez, counselor Nancy Hutchins and principal David Lynn coordinated the students. Tim O’Malley, reporter from the Cuero Record/Yorktown News-View and The Victoria Television Group were present.

Family of Mary Lucas extends sincere gratitude

 

Dear Editor,
 
The family of Mary Lucas would like to extend our sincere gratitude and thanks for the visits, cards, flowers, prayers, and support during her recent sickness and loss.
 
Due to the fact that there were so many food donations it has been difficult to thank each of you individually. Know that we are grateful to each and everyone of you.
 
Thank you also to the food committe at St. Michael’s, the professional staff at Freund Funeral Home, and to Father David Berger for his visits. Each one of you impacted Mary’s life and ours. We are sincere, and so as simple as thank you sounds, know it comes from the heart.
 
With heartfelt thanks,
 
Kay Kuecker
 
On behalf of Leslie, Joey, Hannah, Beth, and Kyra

Board holds off decision to build/remodel until new tax values are released

Yorktown Independent School District is in the beginning process of a facilities study and needs analysis. We are looking at developing a master plan that will insure that our facilities will handle our children’s needs for the present and in the future. As president of the board I would like to start by addressing three crucial points.

First, the Board wants to assure everyone in our district that we have not made any decisions regarding building new or renovating any of our facilities. We will not move forward until tax values have been adjusted to account for the drop in oil prices, a survey of the community and teachers has been completed and all facility options have been explored. Intelligent decisions can only be made when all this information has been compiled and studied.

A big thank you to the following businesses and indivduals for helping the cancer aid and research fundraiser held last Friday.
