Contested races for area schools

 

Filing deadline has passed for a position on the ballot in the upcoming city and school elections in Yorktown and Nordheim.
 
In the Yorktown City election, incumbents Larry Mueller and Ruben “BB” Garcia have filed to run again for their respective positions on the council.  City Councilwoman Frances Villa did not file for re-election, which will result in an opening on the council, which currently consists of incumbents Mueller and Garcia, along with Jerry Alvarez, Shawna Lamprecht and Mayor Rene Hernandez.
 
According to City Secretary Robert Mendez, an election will still be held concerning the sales maintenance tax.  City Council will address the council vacancy at an upcoming council meeting.

County requests $4.5 million for roads

 

It is a little over 230 pages long but it could be worth about $4.5 million toward fixing some roads in DeWitt County.
 
In a special meeting Monday, county commissioners agreed to submit an application to Texas Department of Transportation seeking a small portion of the County Transportation Infrastructure Fund Grant Program. Of the $224 million in the program, this county is asking for $4.5 million.
 
The application estimates the county needs $47 million to repair its overweight traffic damaged roads. But the formula established to request grant funds limits how much the county can receive.

Students explore CTHM

 

John C. French students took a break from their classrooms and headed to Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum Feb. 24. Peggy Ledbetter, Candy Glidden and Dan Glidden welcomed the 40 students to the museum in full costume. 
 
“Mrs. Rose and I took our students to the museum as part of project based lesson called “Texas Our Texas.” We have been learning about what makes Texas so wonderful and so great like the history of the Chisholm Trail, cattle drives and the life of a cowboy,” said John C. French kindergarten teacher Cynthia Warzecha. “[The students] thought it was so fun [...] The museum staff was so wonderful and accomodating to our students.”
