KCB presents seed ball workshop at Boys & Girls Club

Keep Cuero Beautiful presented a seed ball workshop to the Boys & Girls Club of DeWitt County July 25 at the Anna Koch Pavilion at the Cuero Municipal Park. Seed balls do not need to be buried or watered. Seed balls are perfectly content to simply lay about “sleeping” until the right amount of rain falls. Protected from predatory insects, rodents, birds and other animals, seed balls lie dormant until sufficient rains fall to start their germination. Cuero Record photo.

Cuero ISD improvement projects nearing completion

 

Cuero students return to classes in just a little over three weeks.
 
Campus improvement projects are underway at all but two schools in the district.
 
Following last week’s CISD trustee meeting, Supt. Jim Haley gave a report on some of those projects.
 
At Cuero High School the first home game will be August 29. New stadium seating, restrooms and pressbox are under construction now. Those projects should be completed by that first game.
 
However, one of the final steps in the construction is completing the electrical connections to scoreboard and play clock. While work is scheduled to be completed in time for the first contest, it may be an issue for a scrimmage schedule here on Aug. 22.

Neighborhood watch group formed after break-in

 

Patricia Munoz may never forget the day her home was broken into.
 
“I had just left to the store to get some laundry soap,” Munoz said. “My kids were at school, and I was here alone. I had my windows open, airing the house out.”
 
When Munoz, who lives on East Texas Street, returned from the store, she noticed the window screen had been removed from the window.
 
“I backed out of my driveway and I drove up to my neighbor (Mary Stirneman) and asked her if she’d seen anybody over by my house,” Munoz said.
 
“She said the window screen was gone,” Stirneman said. “We were standing there talking. I said, ‘I’ll go in with you and we’ll check it out.’ She said she was going to call her (her husband) Andrew.”
