Worker injured near here

 

High winds contributed to an oilfield injury in DeWitt County last week.
 
The incident occurred on Thursday, Jan. 23, around 3:30 p.m. as a pipeline crew was working in the 5000 block of Cabeza Road near Nordheim.
 
A weather front moved into the county causing high winds. It is believed the winds resulted in downing a utility pole. The electrical line came into contact with the machinery workers were using on the pipeline.
 
Injured was Maximiliano Morin-Avalos, 22, of Sealy. He was taken by Yorktown EMS to DeTar Hospital in Victoria for treatment. He was later transferred to a hospital in San Antonio and was listed in stable condition.

No burn ban yet in county

 

There will be no burn ban in DeWitt County at this time.
 
That is the word from County Judge Daryl Fowler at Monday’s commissioners court meeting.
 
Some individuals and volunteer fire departments have indicated in recent days that the cold weather has taken its toll on pastures drying brush and grass.
 
However, Judge Fowler said the latest Texas Forest Service drought index does not indicate the county is at a level that requires a burn ban. He said the county will continue to monitor the index.

Stolen property from church burglary recovered

 

Stolen property from the First Baptist Church of Westhoff has been recovered. The church, on U.S. Highway 87, was broken into on Christmas Eve last year. Items missing from the church included a laptop computer and documents pertaining to the church’s history.
 
Information about the burglary led investigators from the DeWitt County Sheriff’s office to an Oregon man who was living in the area. The investigation revealed the suspect was wanted in Nevada on several outstanding drug-related warrants. He is awaiting extradition back to Nevada.
 
The investigation was led by Sgt. Carl Bowen.
 
Due to continuing investigation into other possible crimes, the sheriff’s office is not releasing the suspect’s name at this time.

Former Gobblers teach more than football skills

 

Many high school athletes dream of playing sports in  college or becoming an NFL, NBA, or MLB player. However the odds of a high-school football player making it to the pros are about 6000 to 1. According to the National Collegiate Athletic Association website, the odds for a high school basketball player are 10,000-1. But more alarming are the stats for athletes who go to  a Division I college. Only 33 percent of male basketball players and 37.5 percent of football players graduated within five years, according to the Knoght Foundation Commission. 
 
Quincey Whittington and Tre Gray understand those odds through their own experience.

POW experience in exhibit

 

Cuero Daily Record managing editor Ken Towery was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for local reporting in 1955. 
 
But he earned his reputation much earlier in life. 
 
In his book, The Chow Dipper, published in 1994, Towery recounts how as a World War II POW in Corregidor, he was chosen to dip the meager amounts of food made available fellow prisoners. His bowl was available to anyone who felt he had given them less than he got.
