County says 'no' to Cuero ISD SROs

 

Finding student resource officers (SRO) for Cuero School District may be a little harder than anticipated by the district.
In April CISD trustees agreed with a recommendation by Supt. Jim Haley to contract with DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office to provide two SRO officers for the coming school year.
 
Since its inception here, the district had contracted with Cuero Police Department to provide those officers. However, Supt. Haley had recommended the change and the board agreed.
 
But because the program requires a multiple year contract, the sheriff’s office had to have DeWitt County Commissioners Court’s approval before it could pursue the project.

'Vato Loco' no more - never to be seen again

Beatriz Garza was 14 years old. Martin Munoz was 17. When these two first met they fell in love. He promised her the moon and the stars and they were married in 1980. Little did they know, it was a dark road ahead of them that nearly destroyed them. That is until Beatriz met “the bright Morning Star.”

Martin was not a stranger to drinking and is was not long after that Beatriz joined him. She said, “We would go to the dance together with my parents and my dad said that I could drink because I was married.”

A year after marriage they had their first born, Martin Junior. In 1982 they moved to Cuero.

Beatriz said, “Martin got a job at Brentex Mills but little did we know, marriage was hard. We went through a lot. We did not know life because we were too young.”

While Martin soon became popular with the locals, Beatriz was a stay-at-home mom. She decided to go to work at a nursing home.
