Trustees accept Umholtz resignation

The Yorktown school board trustees deliberated quickly and efficiently on Monday, May 18. There were several important agenda items to discuss, including the resignation of superintendent Alan Umholtz.

He stated in a letter, “This was a tough decision to make as I have really enjoyed working here and working with you. I have accepted a position as superintendent with Midway Independent School District, an opportunity to be closer to my family and relatives.”

The meeting began with a second grade teacher, Frances Macomber, giving remarks on how low salary and cost of living are preventing teachers from remaining in the school district.

She stated, “If I leave, there will now be six elementary teachers leaving (after this school year).”

County judge issues evacuation on areas along river

The threat of severe flooding in low lying areas along the Guadalupe River west and south of the City of Cuero has impressed the county judge of DeWitt County, Daryl L. Fowler, to issue a mandatory evacuation. 

All persons in the DeWitt County, with exception of essential emergency personnel, are ordered to immediately evacuate the areas of DeWitt County bounded by the low-lying areas and subdivisions along the Guadalupe River south and west of the City of Cuero including, but not limited to River Haven, River Oaks, Cypress Valley, and other areas that might include temporary housing and/or RV Parks.

The evacuation will remain in effect until rescinded by order of the county judge of DeWitt County.

According to the NOAA web site (water.weather.gov) the river is expected to peak at 7 a.m. of May 28.

At this morning's county commissioner's court meeting Fowler said, “We are operation under the assumption of 44 feet. We have since the beginning.”
