Jacada Williams — first baby of the year

 

The the Cuero Community Hospital Childbirth Center was quiet the first five days of the new year. Finally, the hospital’s first baby of 2015 was born on the night of Jan. 5.
 
Jacada Williams was born at 9:21 p.m. to Kanesha Williams and Glen Brinagh. She weighed six pounds, 15 ounces and measured 20 inches in length.
 
Kanesha, who lives in Yoakum, said the birth was “complicated.”
 
“It was a blessing for me because she was never seeming to come,” she said. “I guess it was an endless wait. I’ve been trying for three weeks to get her to come. She finally came last night, under complications.”

Demolition begins on building; HEB construction expected to start soon

 

Out with the old, and in with the new. Residents of Cuero were probably happy to see some signs of future HEB activity at the proposed location on Fain McDougal Drive. Early stages of demolition of the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative building began last week. Last year, GVEC facilities were moved to two new buildings in town.
 
According to city manager Raymie Zella, HEB plans have been reviewed by the City of Cuero Building Department, and the department has sent back their comments to HEB.
 
“They have not said exactly when they would start construction but I am anticipating construction may start in March, if not sooner,” Zella said.

Service dog in training missing from Cuero home

 

Pet Adoptions of Cuero was contacted by another pet organization, In Dog We Trust Dog Rescue. This chapter of  rescue services originates in Adkins, Texas. After testing, if it determined that a young dog can be trained as a service dog, they are then brought into a home setting 
According to the DWTR director, Cherry Jenkins, “The selected dogs are chosen for their temperament, gentle spirit, calm nature and are not subjected to kenneling.” 
They sent a service dog for training and fostering to the home of Sherry Love in Cuero. The goal of this group is to train and prepare their dogs for service to wounded warriors.  
The dog which is part German Shepherd/hound, weighs about 60 pounds, and went missing from a fenced yard on Dec. 18.
