Cuero ISD employee grievance appealed

 

It took about four hours in closed session to get everyone on the same page but when the Cuero ISD trustees returned to open session, they were in agreement.
 
At the trustee meeting last week, one item on the agenda was listed as a level-three employee grievance appeal. The person filing the grievance was high school math teacher Deborah Pedraza.
 
A level three grievance means she had appealed her complaint from the campus level through the administration and finally to the board.

Families ask county for help with Lockhart Cemetery

 

Several people representing Lockhart Cemetery attended Monday’s DeWitt County Commissioners Court meeting to ask for help in cleaning the cemetery.
 
The court also reviewed drought conditions but took no action to call for a rural burn ban.
 
Rev. George McNary said the historic Lockhart Cemetery, located off  Gonzales Highway between Cuero and Yoakum, was established in 1910 and is in need of substantial clean-up and brush removal.
 
He asked if the county could provide some help in that effort whether it is from jail inmates or precinct employees.
