Cuero ISD trustees motion to reduce iPad fees

 

Getting ready for the coming school year was the theme of last week’s Cuero ISD board of trustees special meeting. Some of those discussions dealt with iPad fees, transportation costs and transfer students.
 
The past school year was the first time Cuero students were issued iPads for their classroom work and after school assignments. Approximately 1,500 iPads were issued.
 
Those iPads were collected from the students at the end of the school year and are now being prepared for the start of school.
 
With that first year’s experience, district technology director Dale Norwood said fees for the iPads can be reduced for the coming school year.

Martin presents Bell Award to Hataway

The Cuero High School bell ceremony was held May 22. The ceremony allows the top ten graduates to recognize an educator of their choice. Following is Darren Martin’s dedication speech.
 
During my years as a student in Cuero, there have been many people who have influenced my life. The man I have chosen to give my bell to changed my entire perspective on the way I see just about everything. While I have only known him for two years, this man has had a great impact on my life. Between the highly personal conversations and brutally honest criticisms, I learned many lessons from this great man.

2 DeWitt County ranchers featured in Australian magazine

 

While most people in South Texas are use to seeing ranchers with oil wells, apparently it is somewhat of a novelty to the folks down-under.
 
Two ranchers and some of the local oil punchers were the subject of a feature in The Australian Financial Review in June. 
Author John Kehoe spent a couple of days in DeWitt County interviewing locals for his article, “Oil’s well in Texas.”
 
Some of the feature was directed at the connection of local drilling company BHP Billiton which is headquartered in Australia. BHP has about 17 drilling rigs in this county.
 
The two ranchers quoted in the article are Bubba Steen and Ray Nolte of the Westhoff area.
