Eleven cardboard recycling containers around town are making a big difference in the City of Cuero recycling efforts.
 
Environmental services superintendent Cheryl Merzbacher reported that the City of Cuero presently has 11 commercial cardboard recycling containers at area businesses, including McDonald’s, Circle K, Dairy Queen, Sonic, Monster Burger, Rath Propane, Taqueria Vallarta, Crossroads Cafe, Mount Vernon Mills and Stripes Stores on Morgan Avenue and Esplanade.
 
“We started the program picking up 480 pounds a week, and then up to 1,500 pounds a week,” Merzbacher said. “We picked up 2,580 pounds of cardboard (on June 17) from the 11 containers.”

Interim supt. faces filling teacher, principal slots

Yorktown Independent School District may have hit a home run hiring Linda Bettin as interim superintendent. Her passion for public education has never faded and she desires to see the children come first.

“I heard a saying that you have to get the right people on the bus and then get them in the right seat,” Bettin said. “We need to have people who truly have a love for kiddos and truly want to be here. That takes a while but you can start slowly turning that around to where they say, ‘This is a good place to be.’ Those that are not, we need to get them off the bus.”

We are looking for a reporter and we know there is someone living in DeWitt County who can fill that role well.

Like a lot of businesses in DeWitt County, whenever it’s time to fill a position, you run an ad. That’s what we do here at The Cuero Record also.
We always get plenty of applications for every position, except for reporters.
We understand that. Being a reporter takes certain skills. One has to be able to take notes, write a story, take photos, cover local sports, etc.
We’ve had several good reporters over the years. But as with most businesses, many have moved up the ladder to bigger and better jobs and some moved away.

Veit presents award to Crain

 

The Cuero High School Bell Ceremony was held on May 19. In the ceremony, the top 10 students and an additional student chosen by the principal present a bell award to an individual who has made a profound impact on his or her life or education. Following is the speech made by Chelsea Veit.
 
These last 12 years I have been blessed to have had countless teachers who have made an impact and touched my life in many different ways. However, one woman has touched my life more than she will ever know and I will be forever grateful to her. 
 
I have known this remarkable woman for many years, even before she became an educator. When I was younger I remember her always being up at the little league fields cheering on her children as well as countless others who were playing as well.
