Neither rain, sleet, snow or oil

After over 25 years, several vehicles, lots of miles, dirt, dust, rain and now oil, Gaylon Kaiser retired from the Yorktown Post Office on Sept. 30. Gaylon started in March, 1989 as a rural carrier substitute. Starting as a sub on RR02, Gaylon worked part-time until the position on RR02 became open then he stepped right in and has delivered mail ever since on that one route. The Yorktown Post Office thanks Gaylon for his many years of service and dedication. Contributed Photo

Plenty of action in Cuero, Giddings game

 

In most high school football games, the action of Friday’s first quarter between Cuero’s Gobblers and Giddings’ Buffalos would have been plenty. There were five touchdowns including a 70 yd. scoring run, turnovers and great defensive plays.
 
Instead just multiply that quarter three times and you see the Gobblers take a 62-31 win over Giddings in a non-conference contest.
 
It was homecoming for Cuero and the Gobblers put on a show for their fans. 
 
On their first possession Cuero needed only 7 plays to march 65 yards for their first points. Gobbler D’Anthony Hopkins ground out 32 yards and quarterback Jared Vernor added 31.
