Rojas presents Bell Award to Braden

 

Throughout my long academic career there have been countless individuals who have made an impact in my life. I think it’s safe to say that I have met most of these people in an educational environment. Because of this, deciding who would receive this bell was a fairly difficult task. However, my choice for the recipient of this bell was someone who not only made an impact in my life but also made an effort to aid me in my future plans.
 
I met this person in the summer before my freshman year at Cuero High School. Year after year, she has always been there to guide me along the way.

1960 opinion cost DeWitt County $8.8 million

 

An obscure Texas Attorney General opinion issued in 1960 has cost DeWitt County about $8.8 million since the Eagle Ford Shale drilling began three years ago.
 
That is the argument presented by County Judge Daryl Fowler and Dewitt County Commissioners Court.
 
About 54 years ago Kleburg County asked the state if it could lease some of its right-of-way for oil and gas exploration. An attorney general’s opinion said any money realized from a lease belongs to the state.
 
Judge Fowler is asking other counties in the shale-play to support new legislation to get that lease money to the counties that own the land.

Rural burn ban tabled at county meeting

 

With anywhere from 3” to 5” of rain recorded throughout DeWitt County from Sunday to Tuesday, it did not take commissioners court long to table a rural burn ban. 
 
The drought index over the past month has indicated this county should considered a burn ban because of a lack of rain. So a burn ban has been discussed by the county.
 
However, prior to the last two discussions, the county has received some rain and the ban was tabled.
 
“It looks like it’s worked again,” said Judge Daryl Fowler, referring to a rain before the court met.
