January is School Board Recognition Month

 

January is School Board Recognition Month and Cuero ISD is joining other districts across the state to thank these local leaders for their dedication and willingness to serve as advocates for our children and public schools. 
 
“Even though we are making a special effort in January to show appreciation to our board members, we realize their many contributions reflect a year-round commitment,” said Jim Haley, Cuero ISD superintendent. “They generously give of themselves to ensure that decisions directly affecting our local schools are made by representatives of this community, people who are close to our schools and know our teachers, parents, and students. As elected officials, they are the voice of their communities, serving first and foremost in the best interest of Texas school children.

Puddles of tainted water and the smell of condensate permeating in the air still looms where an eight inch natural gas pipeline, located on Hohn Road in Nordheim, had a blowout and spewed condensate covering nearly half an acre on Dec. 9.

At that time, Kinder Morgan director of corporate communication and public affairs Richard Wheatley said, “Cleanup operations are underway to be followed by repairs. It’s estimated that the spill will be cleaned up within 24 hours.”

Crews throughout the Yoakum District are on standby

YOAKUM – With a chance of frozen precipitation across much of South Texas Friday night into Saturday, Texas Department of Transportation crews are preparing trucks and other equipment to treat roadways throughout the 11-county Yoakum District. 
TxDOT’s Yoakum District includes Austin, Calhoun, Colorado, DeWitt, Fayette, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca, Matagorda, Victoria, and Wharton counties. 
According to the National Weather Service, areas as far south as Victoria could see light freezing precipitation by Saturday morning. TxDOT crews are closely monitoring the situation and will respond as necessary to treat roadways. 
Drivers are urged to use extreme caution if icing conditions exist, and to avoid travel if at all possible. Special care is urged on bridges and overpasses, as they are typically the first roadways to ice over.
