Art teacher reflects on the past 26 years at Cuero High School

 

Naomi Tarin has been teaching art at Cuero High School for 26 years, and she has definitely found a home here. This fall will be her 27th year in the school district, where the students affectionately refer to her as Ms. T.
 
She did not expect to be teaching in Cuero for very long but once she started having kids she said, “I knew this would be a good place to raise them, and the faculty is more of a family than people you work with.”
 
Ms. T is from San Antonio and is a passionate supporter of the city’s basketball team, the Spurs. Her love for the Spurs has remained strong over the years, as has her commitment to educating young people.

Celebration at Daule Park on July 31

 

Reverend Rafael Brown, pastor of The Good Shepard Church, has decided, with the assistance of his patrons, to host a gathering for the sole purpose of a celebration of life from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, July 31 at the Daule Park.
 
“It is about community. We are not doing this to show ourself as a church,” Brown said. “It is about compassion to reach out to the people.”
 
This will be the first of what they hope to be a regular activity at the park.
 
Brown said, “I want to help that park be called something else. I want it to be a place with a good image, that good things are happening there.”

Docudrama features local settings, actors

Imagine yourself in a church service and the preacher explains Ecclesiastes 3, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven;...” At the end of the sermon, he declares, “There is a time to fight and that time is now coming!” Most people may think that the preacher is out of his mind and label him a radical.

But that was not the case during the colonial reign of America.

It was Sunday morning, early in the year 1776. Pastor J. Peter Muhlenberg, a Lutheran minister, preached that very sermon. He took off his black robe revealing his uniform underneath. He was commissioned to raise and lead the the 8th Virginia Regiment of the Continental Army.

An 18-wheeler miscalculated its turn off of West St. and Fourth St. into The Texan in Yorktown. This caused a fire hydrant to be broken and also broke one of the city’s water mains. The trailer was stuck over the fire hydrant and the railing around it.
