Fernandez presents bell to Longbotham

 

The Cuero High School Bell Ceremony was held on May 19. In the ceremony, the top 10 students and an additional student chosen by the principal present a bell award to an individual who has made a profound impact on his or her life or education. Following is the speech made by James Fernandez.
 
First of all, I would like to take a moment to say thank you to all of the teachers out there, whether they are present here or not, even if they were not a teacher of mine personally, because being a teacher is a ridiculously difficult job but so vitally important. In my twelve or so years of being in school I’ve had plenty of teachers, and I probably couldn’t even name all of them off the top of my head; and I’m sure that they have all had some kind of impact on my life whether I know it or not.

Third time is a charm: Water well in final stages

Residents of Yorktown, the city council and Layne Christensen Company may finally see some light at the end of the tunnel with the near completion of the water well.

Todd Ross, supervisor driller for Layne said, “I have been here three and a half months. The company is footing the bill and I am looking forward finishing this job.”

City manager Robert Mendez reported problems with the water well located at the city park that began on or near Aug. 4, 2014. After a special called meeting on Aug. 19, 2014 the city hired Layne to inspect the well, finding that the well collapsed at 720 feet. Recasing the existing well was not an option in that it will contaminate the water. The alternative was to drill a new well near the collapsed well and tie it into the pumping system. The estimated cost of a new water well was $714,000.

On  April 1, when all seemed a go for completion of the well, a large amount of sand was discovered while completing the aquifer test.

Yorktown's El Shaddai Center hosts 'Boot Camp for Believers'

When youth think of summer camps it is usually a time to get away from parental authority, experience an easy fun-filled week, make new friends and memories.

The experience is far from the norm when anyone attends Boot Camp for Believers in South Texas at the El Shaddai Retreat Center in Yorktown. It is far from easy. Imagine 21 drill instructors on the campus. Much of the time they are in your face yelling where maybe, you wished it was your mom or dad. It is not the typical fun-filled activities but 300 youth attend every year.

Pastor Richard Rubi, of The Door Christian Fellowship Church of San Antonio, came up with the idea 22 years ago to challenge teenagers from the age  13-19 to pursue God instead of just coming to church.
